Modern Techniques in Hair Transplantation

Follicular unit extraction (FUE), also known as follicular transfer (FT), is one of two primary methods of obtaining follicular units, naturally occurring groups of one to four hairs, for hair transplantation.The other method is called strip harvesting. In FUE harvesting, individual follicular units are extracted directly from the hair restoration patient's donor area, ideally one at a time. This differs from strip-harvesting because, in strip harvesting, a strip of skin is removed from the patient and then dissected into many individual follicular units. The follicular units obtained by either method are the basic building blocks of follicular unit transplantation (FUT).Nowadays FUE technology has grown into Advanced FUE. The main difference is that Advanced FUE enables the creation of larger donor pools by harvesting follicles from areas outside the head such as: chest, legs, arms, abdomen, back, face, and beard. Also Advanced FUE addresses the fact that hair often grows in a curved trajectories. With standard FUE surgical there is the assumption that this growth occurs as a straight line. This entails a risk of damaging the follicles during the excision and retrieval of the grafts.Androgenic alopecia (also known as androgenetic alopecia, alopecia androgenetica, or male pattern baldness) is hair loss that occurs due to an underlying susceptibility of hair follicles to androgenic miniaturization. Hair Transplantation conference is a surgical technique that moves individual hair follicles from a part of the body called the 'donor site' to bald or balding part of the body known as the 'recipient site'. Nowadays, there are two popular hair transplant methods, and both use micrograft technique to produce natural looking results. These hair transplant methods are known as FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction).a. FUT hair transplant: FUT is the first method used by the surgeons when they started practicing micrograft hair transplant technique. In FUT, the surgeon extracts a strip of scalp from the back of the head. After closing the remaining scalp, the surgery team divides this strip into micrografts, also known as follicular units. The plantation of these small micrografts requires very small holes. Your surgeon creates these tiny holes and plants micrografts in these holes.b. FUE hair transplant: FUE is a more advanced micrograft hair transplant technique. Instead of removing a strip of your scalp, your surgeon extracts individual hair follicles one by one. This results in less trauma to the donor site. Additionally, the FUE method does not produce a linear scar, as FUT method produces. The FUE method produces tiny pinhole scars that are not visible even with very short hair.

Industry statistics and market size for hair loss treatment is annually $4bn. Number of U.S men experiencing hair loss is 35 Million, number of U.S women experiencing hair loss is 21 Million, number of hair loss sufferers, world-wide, seeking professional treatment is 811,363.
