Follicular unit extraction is a hair transplant technique that involves removing single hair follicles from your body and transplanting them to an area of your body where hair is weaker or nonexistent.
The three-phase cycle of hair development and renewal reduces as you get older, until follicle no longer regrow hairs.
Hair is restored through FUE hair transplants, which replace aged follicles with fresh follicles that can still generate hair.
The cells will be fed by blood vessels after the transplant and will start developing hair in the region where there was formerly sparse hair or receding.
Hair will be trimmed in the region where follicles will be extracted as well as surrounding the transplant area by your doctor.
The surgeon will next put the retrieved follicles into a series of tiny incisions made with a needle or other tiny, sharp equipment.
The follicles will be inserted into the incisions.
For recuperation, your surgeon will wash and bandage the affected area.
