FUE stands for Follicle Unit Extraction. In this process hair follicles are extracted from the back of the scalp individually from permanent zone. It has got numerous advantages over FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation).
FUE has undergone a huge transformation from the days it was first presented as a possible addition to strip surgery(FUT) almost ten years ago. Gone are the days when the procedure was deemed unpredictable and not cost effective as there was a lot of wastage of grafts and the outcomes were very poor.
Over the past 6-7 years, FUE has received more acceptance and in one of the recent ISHRS surveys, it was confirmed that the demand for FUE was far outstripping supply and that more and more surgeons and patients have accepted the fact that FUE, when performed by a reputable and experienced surgeon, can yield exceptional results with minimal discomfort and downtime.
Dr Reddy has added his own improvements to the technique and this has led to the evolution of the third generation FUE Hair Transplant ( 3G FUE). He is at the forefront of improving technology and is one of the few surgeons that has received glowing references and recommendations on some of the patient lead hair restoration forums including:
Dr Reddy is renowned worldwide for his patient centred approach and he has trained a lot of doctors in his 3G FUE technique.
"Just to let you know, what a transformation I've seen in only 4 weeks, can hardly believe it. Within days I felt a lot of short spiky hair coming through , and I've actually developed a new hairline. Still some way to go but am optimistic this is exactly what I was hoping for."Steve in UK
"A very big thank you. I am finding it hard to believe the hairline I have this morning! You and your team did a fabulous job, and a man of my age really shouldn’t be so excited.... It was also illuminating to see how well your teamed worked together, they certainly appear to be a happy, cohesive and very professional, they all treated one another with such respect. Equally importantly, they made me feel that my needs were paramount. Well done on creating that spirit. I very much look forward to seeing you again soon. By the way, it was an unexpected pleasure to see and speak with Kriste again. Please give her my best wishes. Thank you again"Graham in UK
