Hair transplant in Pakistan Procedures

"Follicular Unit Extraction: Minimally Invasive Surgery for Hair loss & baldness treatment."Follicular Unit Extraction is one of two primary methods of hair restoration surgery. The other method is called F.U.T or follicular unit transplant commonly known as strip surgery. Follicular unit extraction procedure is preferred over strip hair restoration surgery due to non linear scar or invisible donor area scar. It is a major reason mostly athletes, Diabetic patients and other people who want to keep their hair short, choose Fue technique. Body hair transplant (BHT) is performed through F.U.E. technique where body hairs are extracted and transplanted to scalp. These hair might be from chest, beard, abdomen, back and legs. F.U.E. and F.U.T. are surgical procedures , major difference is use of scalpel or incision in FUT method while no cut or incision in FUE procedure. FUT or strip hair restoration surgery consist of incision and long linear scar formation in the donor area. While Fue is free from such kind of scar, no more stitches and less discomfort.

F.U.E.procedure is performed under local anesthesia to make it pain free or without discomfort. Follicles or grafts are removed from donor area. This donor area can be back and sides of scalp, beard, chest, abdomen or legs. However it is a priority of hair restoration surgeon to extract from scalp due to permanent zone, texture, hair growth pattern and abundance of follicular units. It is important to shave or trim donor area approximately 1 mm so that follicles extraction will be easier and this step would decrease transection or wastage rate of follicular units. Dr.Ahmad Chaudhry performed Motorized fue hair transplant in Pakistan for quick extraction, large number of grafts and more recipient area coverage with dense packing frontal hairline. This machine is fixed with 1.00 mm or 0.9 mm punches so that donor area scar would be less visible. The hole or gap is healed within twenty four to forty eight hours. Dr.Ahmad Chaudhry is performing hair transplant in Pakistan and abroad for the last sixteen years. As a skilled surgeon he could extract 2000 to 3500 grafts in two to three hours. However those patients who have extensive hair loss or baldness pattern and may need more than 3500 grafts, second or third day procedure could also be performed. There is no more waiting time or interval between sessions. One may get maximum coverage in one or two days follicular unit extraction procedure. Donor area is covered with antibiotic ointment and dressing. This bandage is removed first post op day.

A fine needle-point instrument is then used in the balding area of the scalp to make the "recipient site". The instrument size is 21 and 19 gauge hypodermic needles. The "hair restoration surgeon needs considerable surgical skill as well as a keen aesthetic sense to create the "recipient site".The creation of recipient sites will determine the density, natural orientation or pattern, hair shaft angle as well as natural look. Three to four well trained and experienced team members will place harvested grafts into recipient area without damaging these tiny follicular units. Then these grafts grow into healthy hair. Graft placement is a time-consuming procedure in the surgery. The patient is told to keep their head relatively still. The surgical team will place the follicular unit grafts into the "recipient sites". One follicular units are used in the front hair line and the 2- and 3- grafts are used in central forelock area to attain maximum fullness. The position of all grafts will be rechecked. The donor area will be bandaged and the patient can go home. All dressings will be removed the following morning.

FUE (Stitches free) verses FUT(Strip) Procedure comparison

Follicular unit transplant (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE) are both techniques that help in hair restoration. In these methods, follicles are transferred from one area of the scalp to another. Follicles are those units that contain one to four hairs and that are responsible for hair growth. These both techniques have their own side-effects, advantages and disadvantages. It is better to have FUE and FUT comparison before going for any of these treatments. This also helps in identifying which of them is suitable and required by a patient. In FUT method; a thin horizontal strip is used. This strip is three to fourth inch in length depending upon recipient area. Follicles are extracted from the scalp`s donor area with the help of strip. After doing strip extraction, wound is required to be healed. This wound is staples, sutured or stitched with help of stainless steel staples that are especially designed for cosmetic surgeries. In FUE method, Follicles are extracted directly from the scalp of the patient. No strip is used in this technique. A punch is used to create tiny round incisions around each follicle in the donor area. It is used to separate follicles from its surroundings. Follicles are later pulled out by the surgeon.

After extraction, follicles are dissected under a binocular microscope in both FUT and FUE method. Follicles are dissected to get separated from each other and from neighboring tissues in FUT. Grafts obtained through FUT methods are known as "Micro Grafts" in medical terminology. FUE, follicles are dissected to clean them from surrounding fatty tissues and the grafts obtained are called "Follicular Unit Grafts." The last step of inserting grafts in the recipient area is the same in both methods. Recipient sites are created with the help of a tiny hollow needle in bald portion of the scalp in FUE and FUT. Grafts are inserted from where they grow into healthy hairs.

The main difference between FUT and FUE are that in FUE there is no linear incision like in FUT. No staples, stitches or structures are requires in FUE. There is less pain and bleeding involve in FUE method. No linear mark will be present on the scalp after the surgery if a patient undergo through FUE. Scar resulted from strip surgery of FUT is concealed by hair growth in that area. There is less bleeding involved in FUE technique as compared to FUT. Less pain, bleeding and discomfort during FUE technique make it most popular and preferred hair loss treatment technique in Pakistan these days. Due a visible linear scar, patients who get treated with FUT surgery cannot have short hair after their treatment. FUE is ideal for those people that want to have short hair or shave head sometimes later in their life. FUE treatment is more costly as compared to FUT transplant.However low cost or cheaper fue in Pakistan is possible when we compare cost with other countries. FUE costs in Pakistan almost 60-70% less as compared to same procedure in UK, France, Canada, Australia and USA.
