Change of FUE from Extraction to Excision
FUE hair transplant is known as follicular unit extraction method used for hair restoration but now it has been changed to follicular unit excision method. Let us understand what changes have been occurred in the procedure due to this change of name.
What is the FUE procedure?
FUE Hair Transplant in Chandigarh is the advanced method used for restoring hair after hair loss. It is the method of extracting individual follicles from the back head and transplanting them in the bald or thinning areas. All this extraction and transplantation has been done under the local anesthesia.
What is the change?
Now there has been changing occur not only in the name of FUE but also in the process as in the earlier follicular extraction method follicles were used to extract from the donor are about in the follicular unit excision method circumferential incision of the skin around the bundle or group of hair follicles is made to extract full-thickness skin graft containing fat, dermis and epidermis along with the hair follicles.
Basically, the term excision is the combination of two terms incision and extraction means
Extraction + incision = excision
Basically, in this procedure of follicular unit excision, an efficient surgeon excises each follicle, however, the technician removes them from the donor area and then the individual hair follicles are transplanted in the bald portions of the scalp.
Why change from extraction to excision?
It is the most advanced change that has occurred in the FUE method since 1988 in 2018 as this replacement of extraction with excision has made a huge difference to the process and results. Researchers believe that in the traditional approach of FUE many tiny incisions have to make to extract the follicles but now in this new technique, only one incision is sufficient to extract the individual hair follicles.
So this new method is less invasive and less scarring for the patients and even in 4-7 days, patients can get back to their normal life.
Even this new method has altered the results of hair transplant as with this change now the patient can get visible results in just 4-6months means approximately 2 months earlier than the traditional FUE.
