For the past 3-4 years, we have almost exclusively used this method. In almost all patient consultations, we have found that FUE is a better or at least completely equivalent alternative to FUT. Our patients experience FUE as completely odramatic, no wounds that can hurt or tighten, no sutures to take, no scars to worry about. And the cost is now down to the same level as for FUT, taking into account the general cost trend.
When we perform FUE, that is, harvesting the hair follicles that we are going to redistribute, you are comfortable and probably sleeping. The surfaces have been carefully depleted. That moment, you have no remembrance, when you received tranquilizers just before. In anticipation of implantation, the hair transplant is stored in a special salt and nutritional solution. The next step is to prepare the area where the graft is to be put. We call it "jacking". The instrument we use makes channels with a firmly defined direction and angle relative to the skin surface. The tightness requirement is different in different situations. The surfaces are local anesthetized.
