Instrumental advancement in FUE hair transplant


Follicular Unit Extraction(FUE) is become an advanced procedure over Strip method of hair transplantation due to significant improvement in instrumental industry through long experience and research in medical by surgeons and physicians living worldwide. FUE is one of the best techniques for hair graft collection that is required to perform a transplant procedure. A transplant procedure may be required to set front hairline or to treat baldness or hair thinning on head. It is also used for transplanting naturally growing hairs on the thinning showing features of face including eyebrow, beard, mustache or eyelash. It is useful and liked by most of patients experiencing the disorder in the world. During this type of procedure no any surgery is required for graft extraction from donor parts like Strip harvesting method where a strip of 1 to 1.5 cm wide and 10 to 15 cm long of skin is removed from back of scalp to collect grafts. So, the FUE technique is more popular among surgeons and patients nowadays as grafts are extracted out one by one using a hair punch of around 0.07mm diameter. The grafts are kept in a solution that keeps them alive for several hours. FUE does not leave scarring on donor parts and density of hairs there is also does not get disturbed as one graft is taken out from a group of five to six hairs. Bleeding does also not occur as no skin is removed in a strip form from donor parts.
Intact and baldness resisting graft extraction:
It is very important that a surgeon should extract out such hair grafts that are generally baldness resistant and remain intact during the extraction. Damage to grafts during graft collection should be negligible. So surgeons worldwide always pay attention in this regard and their experience plays a crucial role in it.
Density of hairs on donor parts:
Density of hairs on donor parts during graft collection is generally kept in mind. A good surgeon never extract out grafts from same area on donor parts that could generate a bald spot later due to lack of follicles. To maintain the density, good surgeons take one graft from a group of five or six hairs with a punch.
Body Hair Transplantation:
Sometimes it is also experienced by the surgeon that patient who comes for hair transplant lacks donor parts on posterior parts of his/her scalp. To face this problem surgeons at Walia Hospital have to transplant hairs by taking grafts from other body parts of the patient including arms, legs, back, chest, abdomen or shoulders etc. When grafts are taken from other body parts except from the scalp, the transplantation is called Body Hair Transplant (BHT).
Instruments for FUE hair transplant:
Along with experience and knowledge of surgeons, sophisticated instruments should also be required for hair transplantation. It had taken a long journey and time to develop modern day devices and tools for the transplantation. These tools however, assist surgeons for improving the operative process through reducing operative time and enhancing its efficiency by saving follicles from unintentional damage.
Manual hair punch:
The original hair punch was a circular hollow scalpel of metal that had 0.7 to 1.0 mm diameter. Before trimming hairs with 1 to 2mm height on donor parts, the punch is placed over a single follicle or a group of follicles and pressed downward and rotated manually with a little force in the skin to remove the follicle from surrounding tissue. It is extracted out of the skin with help of forceps. The punch hence helps to separate a graft from skin. It can extract out one graft from skin at a time. It takes few seconds to separate and collect a graft. A graft may be a single follicle or a group of 2 to 6 follicles. A follicle produces one strand of hair after its transplantation. The punch is really useful for eliminating the possibility of developing rounded scars on donor parts. The manual punch is further improved through addition of other useful characteristics such as reducing its diameter and enhancing its rotational properties to get intact grafts.
Advanced FUE instruments
To speed up graft collection, new instruments were developed for the technology. These instruments were ranging from mechanical to robotic punches and systems.
The SAFE System: It is a three step method to get a graft through reducing potential for transaction. During this system, a sharp punch is used to incise skin around a graft and then a blunt circular punch is applied to loosen the unit from its surrounding tissue. The third step of it is extraction of the unit finally.
The Powered SAFE Scribe:
It is an electrically motorized hand hold instrument that is used to extract grafts. It is a minimal invasive instrument that does not damage follicles. It speeds up graft collection. Scarring is also minimal during use of this device. The punch rotates with the help of motor installed in it with the help of electric power.

Powered hair punch

Roto Core:
The manual punch is further modified to facilitate automatic rotation during graft harvesting. A Roto Core punch came into existence that rotates itself automatically when it is used to make a rounded incision around a graft. The penetration depth of the punch is also adjustable in this the punch.


Feller Hair Punch:
Feller punch, which was designed by Dr Alan Feller, supports friction less graft harvesting without rotation. It is useful to create minimal fatigue during hair transplantation. These punches are generally available in two forms with 0.9mm and 1.0mm.
Core Isolation Technique:
Dr. John P. Cole had invented the Core Isolation Technique after his previously developed Follicular Isolation Technique (FIT). It is an advanced technique to extract intact grafts from donor parts. This technique is efficient for cutting the dermis just beyond the arrector pilli muscle. This helps to extrude out an intact graft form the skin. Graft damage is minimal during this technology.
Neo Graft:
Neo Graft that was developed by a trademark of mechanical instruments, is used to support physician’s proficiency for graft harvesting and plantation. The mechanized instrument contains a rotating sharp punch to extract intact grafts and a suction device that helps for removing the graft from skin and moving it in a graft collection dish.
Counting Incision Device:
Counting Incision Device (CID) is a useful device for perfectly maintaining the incision count during transplantation of grafts or preparing a recipient area. It provides virtual reading of incisions on its small screen or LED display that supports five digit counts. The depth of incision, that is to be made on recipient site, is adjustable in the device. It is reusable and its blades and needles are disposed after use. It provides an opportunity to a physician for concentrating himself/herself not only on incision making job but he/she may talk to the surrounding staff. He/she does not need for counting each incision and remembering it for further addition. The surgeon can do other job during the procedure without counting the incisions.
Artas System:
The Artas System is the most advanced technique for FUE graft collection. It is completely a robotic technique for FUE hair transplantation. Restoration Robotics Inc had developed it first time in the surgery. It is US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved technique used for treating male pattern baldness. It is installed with computer based commands for extraction of grafts using air suction pressure. The robotic technique is useful to collect one thousand grafts per hour.

Tips to prevent hair loss

Hair fall up to 100 to 150 hairs per day is a normal condition and if it increased to over 150 hairs, the situation found to be considered as onset of the loss.

Use good quality mild shampoo and soft hair products. Concentrate on scalp and hair roots while shampooing and apply hair lotion or conditioner on the ends of your hair as these are more prone to dry and damaged through exposure.
  • Avoid hair styles that create regular pull on your hairs including ponytail, cornrows and braids. These may develop a hair loss type termed as Traction alopecia. A bald spot or decline in front hairline may be caused by this type of hair loss.

Hair loss causes in women

Hair loss causes in women

Female hair loss picture

Hair Loss causes in women includes several factors. Stress is a main cause behind it. Women can get stress through various reasons like any abnormal conditions to their health and beauty, diabetes, overweight, divorce, financial problems, a severe infection, major surgery and other negative situations. Extreme stress in women suddenly brings 90% hair follicles to resting stage from their growing stage. This may go for months to some years and referred as Telogen effluvium. It is also observed that after child birth women usually experience hair loss as child birth stress creates hormonal imbalance to them. However HL after child birth is categorized as a temporary hair loss. It is generally restored after returning to normal health in few weeks. In general 50 to 100 strands of hair fall out each day from our head. If the number is increased then it is termed as starting of a hair loss condition. Other reasons for it in women include poor diet, thyroid imbalance and excessive use of unsuitable hair care products like shampoos, hair dyes, hair conditioners etc.

Female Pattern Baldness is such a type of the loss in which women get hair thinning on their head. The main cause behind it is Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a derivative of male hormone called testosterone. Small traces of testosterone are also present in a female under her normal health conditions. DHT causes hair follicle miniaturization and gradually destroys hair follicles. DHT is also a main cause behind Male Pattern Baldness. Sudden decline in female hormones just after menopause also create the problem. The cyclic nature of both hair and female hormones is one reason behind sudden and excessive hair loss. The symptoms of this type of hair loss include hair thinning mainly on the top and crown of the scalp; however the front hair line remains as such. Hypothyroidism is also a cause behind female hair loss. Body starts producing less amount of thyroid hormone which supports several metabolic activities of the body. The hormone also supports growth of skin, hair and nails. The disorder leads to brittle and weak hair and prevails in most of women after 50s. Anemia or iron deficiency is also associated with the hair loss. It is a condition of lower number of RBCs in blood. Iron is useful for keeping hair follicles active as it is necessary to send oxygen to every cell of the body. Zinc deficiency also causes the loss as the element is useful for well functioning of hair follicles. Lack of biotin in body is also related to the loss. Vitamin A is also required in sufficient amount for metabolism of several activities. Moreover protein deficiency sometime shows enormous hair loss as proteins are useful for production of hairs and follicles too.

Some medications to treat ulcers, epilepsy, depression, acne, cancer, birth control, blood thinning, cholesterol, anti inflammation, thyroid disorders may bring hair loss due to their side effects. It would be important to confirm from a physician whether the prescribed or on the counter available medicine you are consuming causing the loss as side effect. Chemotherapy or radiotherapy also causes hair loss as it targets hair follicles along with rapidly diving cancer cells. 90% of active hairs in their growing stage fall out of the body soon after chemotherapy against cancer. This type of hair loss is termed as Anagen Effluvium. An autoimmune disorder called Alopecia areata may cause the loss in which own immune system generally attacks hair follicle mistakenly. This is also found in men. It causes small round smooth patches of baldness on scalp, eyebrows, legs, beard or mustaches. Continuous pull on hairs for several hours during certain hair styles like braiding, cornrows and tight ponytails plus wearing of hair extensions and hairpieces also cause the loss. This type of loss is known as Traction alopecia that develops a bald spot overtime. Over hair straightening, bleaching and coloring to locks may also lead the loss. Polycystic ovarian syndrome also creates hair loss in women. Ovaries start producing too much male hormone that may causes infertility in women. This disorder may cause hair loss, facial hair growth, irregular periods, cysts on the ovaries and acne formation. This may starts at early teens of their age.

It is generally noticed that women restore their temporary hair loss after some weeks if their health improves and they take nutritious diet full of minerals, vitamins, proteins, unsaturated fat and some carbohydrates. If they could not get any relief to their disorder even after using Minoxidil or Finasteride then hair transplantation is only the best option for them. Follicular Unit Extraction hair transplant is a very effective for women hair loss. It is really a very economic and permanent solution for the loss. These hair transplant surgical procedures are quite painless and bloodless. These make no any scar on donor parts of an individual who goes under the treatment.

Causes of baldness in men

Males whether they are residing in India or foreign countries worldwide used to get decline in their front hairlines during their thirties. This decline is caused by hair fall in front parts of the scalp. The decline continuously grows and covers temporal parts for the scalp leaving a V shape hair style there. Some men also get hair loss at their central parts of head. They appear older than their actual age due to the loss. It also causes lack of confidence in them. There are various causes of the loss like genealogy, aging, hormones, vitamins, stress, trauma, medications, lifestyle, diet, mineral deficiencies etc. We would like to describe here some main causes of the loss in them. The main cause of hair loss is DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) formation which leads to create male pattern baldness in males. This causes shrinkage of active hair follicles and this process is termed as follicular miniaturization. The follicles stop growing hairs where and develop bald parts on the scalp. DHT is formed from derivation of a male hormone known as testosterone after reaction for an enzyme, 5 alpha reductase. Our genetics also plays a role causing loss to our hairs through our genes.

A Hair Transplant (HT) procedure is a very delicate and time consuming surgery which is performed under local anaesthesia by an experienced specialist. Hair Grafts (HGs) are harvested from donor parts and then transplanted on recipient parts distributing equally without leaving any spot. A HT procedure is generally carried out through two HT techniques including Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). FUT is also termed as Strip Harvesting. Prior to performing FUT or FUE, hairs are trimmed in such a way that their length remains around 3 mm so that their HGs can easily be extracted out and separated.



Baldness in men and women image

Baldness is an extreme situation of hair thinning or hair loss generally on human male or female scalp rather than face and body. The degree of hair loss as well as pattern of the baldness might be different in both sexes; however androgenic alopecia/alopecia androgenetica causes it worldwide. Baldness is quite different from alopecia areata which generally shows patchy hair loss. Alopecia totalis, more extreme form of alopecia areata, shows all hair loss on head while alopecia universalis represents all hair loss on head as well as body too. Over 95% of males worldwide face male pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia. Male pattern baldness commonly starts with receding front hair line with/or a thinning crown (vertex).

FUT hair transplant

What is FUT hair transplant?

Follicular Unit Transplantation is a hair transplant technique which is implemented for restoration of human hairs on head and face. In this technique a strip about twenty to twenty five cm long and one to two and half cm wide is taken from donor parts usually posterior head with natural hairs. It is further cut to tiny pieces separating several hair grafts/follicular units which are transplanted to donor parts on scalp or face.
