In this method of donor harvesting instead of cutting the strip individual grafts are dug out using a specially designed punch mounted on a graded drill machine. The surgeon maneuvers the punch around a tuft of hair keeping in mind the invisible direction of hair in the skin, and bores into the skin cutting around the hair.
The punch revolving at a high speed cuts around the graft, and then the graft is picked out using especially designed forceps in a special manner to reduce trauma to the graft
A wider area can be used to harvest the donor and there is no resulting linear scar.
The procedure is ideal for people
Who have a poor donor area.
Whose skin is less mobile over the bone.
Who either keep their heads shaved or keep a very short trim.
FUE is a procedure of indication not choice
We use especially designed punches for the procedure and keep the damage to the graft to a minimum.
The punch holes heal in about 5 days.
The head needs to be shaved for extraction of hairs and the client goes home with a dressing for three days.
