Follicular Unit Extraction

By Dr Raghu Reddy

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:

  1. Hair transplant network
  2. Bald truth
  3. American hair loss association
  4. Hair site
  5. Hair loss experiences and
  6. British Trichological society


Dr Reddy is renowned worldwide for his patient centred approach and he has trained a lot of doctors in his 3G FUE technique.

"I have attached some photos for your perusal and considering we are only 2 weeks post treatment I am delighted with the results. Hardly any hairs have fallen out yet and even if they do assuming the hairline regrows as is I will continue to be absolutely delighted. I will continue to document my recovery and progress and will call next week to arrange a follow up"
