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.

What our customers say

"I'm sure it stil continues to get thicker.. Can't thank you enough totally changed my life!! I am grateful to you each time I look in the mirror... Also what you did in the crown has worked, I don't worry about that anymore, stil take the propecia each day. Every blog I read about not seeing results for 6 months etc none of that was true, I maybe was lucky I don't think I really shed any of the hairs but I have noticed the last couple of months it's got thicker!! All this after 8 months!!!!!"

"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."
