FUE / DHT
Follicular Unit Extraction
In FUE hair transplantation, every single follicular unit is exclusively extracted directly from the head without any need to remove tissue from the scalp. From the donor site, the hair follicles are removed in a random manner and the result is less density that many people say is not even noticeable.
This is the primary difference between FUE and FUT techniques. Since follicles are extracted one by one, less number of follicles can be gathered during a run of the normal session, which makes FUE an excellent option to regrow hair in smaller cases or grafts numbers compared to the common FUT technique.
FUE is often seen as an advance hair transplant treatment because it’s constantly evolving and introducing better approaches to the treatment. This technique, which was once used in only small cases, is now being used on a much wider scale all over the world. Often, FUE technique requires more than 1 session to complete and the exact number of sessions depends on the bald spot which is supposed to be treated.
FUE Pain Management
FUE procedures do have a faster healing time as no stitches are needed and no linear scar is left behind to heal. When compared to the traditional FUT procedure, FUE technique has far less post-procedure discomfort.
There is no linear scar left behind because FUE techniques involve removing hair one by one from the head. However, small 1mm in diameter (or less) marks may occur, which heal by themselves after a few days of the procedure. Within 3 to 8 days, these small wounds heal away.
Direct Hair Transplant
DHT or, Direct Hair Transplant is often seen as a modification of FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) treatment. Let’s understand what it’s all about.
In this treatment, hairs are extracted from half of the donor area and kept in HYPOTHERMOSOL solution (with Normal saline). For instance, 2,500 grafts are meant for a patient. Then 1500 grafts will be extracted from donor site and kept in solution. After this in Recipient area, All the slits are made area for implanting in the Grafts, keeping in care about the Density & direction of Grafts.This may require around 3 hours of graft accumulation in solution. The grafts are now implanted in the pre made slits. After a Lunch break, the remaining Grafts are Harvested & Implanted.
FUE / S.A.F.E
S.A.F.E (Surgically Advanced Follicular Extraction) is actually a gadget that utilizes blunt dissection method to confine the follicular units from the tissue present in the surrounding area. Surgically Advanced Follicular Extraction System is a creative innovation that enhances the results achieved from the FUE technique.
With the help of this method, a surgeon can perform specific follicular extraction without any type of damage and loss of follicles, which is often linked with a common type of FUE extraction.
It actually comprises of a spinning blunt punch that isolates the follicular units from the encompassing dermis. The separated follicular unit grafts are then extracted by using forceps, sorted, checked, counted, and then planted into the balding spot zone utilizing the best methods. There are many patients who hardly have any hair on their scalp. So, this advanced hair transplant treatment allows to take hair from different other regions and then implanting them in the balding areas.
- Any individual who needs to control and stop the damage caused to the follicles can choose this technique.
- In this technique, there’s no need to shave the whole area.
- Due to less follicle damage, a higher amount of donor hair is available.
- No linear scarring.
- The long hair conceals the donor area and makes it practically invisible.
- A lot shorter recovery time period.

ROBOTIC FUE/ ARTAS
The ARTAS Robotic System is considered in the medical world as the most advanced machine that is used for the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method. The precision in FUE extraction while gathering follicular units with this machine is accomplished by using its infrared cameras, its exact count of follicular unit density and numbers, and it's the latest software that finds the right angle and depth of the follicular units. The surgery is performed by Dr. Sumit Agrawal.
Robotic FUE/ ARTAS harvest follicular units efficiently and don't leave a linear scar at the back of the scalp. This enables the patients to keep short hair even in the donor area as there’s almost no noticeable evidence of a hair transplant treatment.
With Robotic FUE/ ARTAS, you can now have a permanent and natural looking solution for your baldness problem. And nobody will know that you had a hair transplant surgery. Robotic FUE/ ARTAS will give you a natural looking hair that you can wear in any style to get your confidence back.
- Fast recovery.
- No linear scar.
- Hair restoration results will be permanent.
- No use of staples suture or a surgical blade.
- Compared to common FUE there will be an increase in yield of transplanted hair grafts.
