Why surgeons recommend FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)

AK Clinics | October, 8 2013 | 0 Comments

Is FUE as good as surgeons make it out to be?  Or is it a marketing gimmick at the end of the day?  We continue from our previous blogpost..

A very serious drawback of the STRIP procedure is that if it goes wrong, the patient may also suffer from loo of scalp.

For most people suffering from baldness, FUE is the technique that transforms their bleak, incomplete life into a more meaningful one where rejection does not play a significant role or a stumbling block; whether it is career opportunities or relationships. A single strip of hair can provide 1800 to 4000 hair follicles without any damage to the roots, if done under expert medical supervision. All these forms of modern hair transplants provide natural results in a short time frame. Chemical hair loss treatments, on the other hand, takes months or years to show results. Also, being a versatile procedure, FUE can also be used for facial reconstruction.

However, people suffer from this misnotion that hair transplants provide a permanent solution, not realizing that it is more resistant to falling and retains its thickness over natural hair. This is infinitely better than suffering baldness silently for years, because of unavailability of treatment; like it was way back fifty years ago. Times have changed. Earlier, men dreaded losing hair and a thinning at the crown heralded the onset of baldness. Now, it does not ring alarm bells, as people realize that help is at hand.  Also, people have some sort of sentimental bonding with their hair, an emotional attachment. It is precisely why we value hair regrowth and would like to provide our customers with the alternative that suits them best.  For some patients FUE may be the best procedure, but for others it may be a combination of mesotherapy and DHT.

Experts in the field can ascertain which treatment will work best. For individualized consultations, visit or head to our centres at Mumbai, Ludhiana or Delhi and avail of the best medical advice for yourself.
