Torn between internet research results and advertisements, hair transplant patients often lose what they have to choose. Making the decision to undergo surgery was the easy part, but choosing the right hair transplantation technique is a completely different story. Especially with the number of methods currently being used compared to information published about them, it seems that there is no light at the end of the tunnel.
However, you do not have to worry anymore, in this article we will thoroughly discuss all methods, so that ultimately all the confusion regarding hair transplant techniques is anything but present.
Standard Hair Transplantation Techniques
Despite the range of hair transplantation techniques currently being applied, there are only two standard methods: follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit transplantation (FUT). Everything else is a variant of one of the above techniques; we will get there immediately. Both FUE and FUT have a similar process overview: both include hair extraction from donor sites, retention of extracted grafts, creation of incisions at recipient sites and finally implantation. So how do they differ? The difference is in the extraction process.
Extraction of Grafts
→ FUT Hair Transplantation: in FUT, to extract the transplants, a surgeon will have to surgically cut the donor area and later dissect the strip to harvest the units. The excision is then sewn and the piece is dissected under a microscope. This method leaves a linear scar in the donor area.
→ FUE Hair Transplantation: in FUE hair transplant lahore, to extract grafts, a surgeon will use a blast of motor to harvest individual grafts separately. The micro dimension of the impact leaves no scars, unlike FUT.
This step is the same in both FUE and FUT. Using a knife, your surgeon makes incisions to prepare the site for implantation. The number of incisions depends entirely on the number of implants.
This procedure is also the same in both FUE and FUT. Once the receiving site is ready, the grafts are carefully inserted into the incision. This marks the end of the surgical procedure.
Apart from procedural differences, or in other words, as a result of these procedural differences; FUE is more popular with doctors and patients. With FUE there is no linear scar or scar. Moreover, this ensures shorter recovery periods and less risk of infection. In addition, with FUE any area in the body can act as a donor region. This is especially useful when patients want to undergo a hair transplant in the face or in other body areas. All these benefits are of course a product of its minimally invasive nature. In view of all this, FUE costs higher costs than FUT in the lahore, so that this does not fall within the ordinary man’s budget. However, there are other alternatives to the lahore that offer a high-quality hair transplant.
Variants of The Standard Methods
As we said before, there are only two standard hair transplantation techniques. Other techniques are in reality variants of the standards with small differences in equipment. To be precise, there are only variants of the FUE technique, since it is the most popular technique, it is always prone to progress. FUT, on the other hand, is an outdated technique that is almost extinct on the market and is never the subject of development. The vast majority of these techniques are offered exclusively by clinics in Pakistan, given the capital of the world’s hair transplant. Without further ado, the developed FUE hair transplantation techniques are currently Sapphire FUE and DHI Choi FUE.
The Sapphire FUE follows the same procedure as the standard FUE hair transplantation technique. The difference depends on the equipment used and the butterfly effect that initiates this small change. Sapphire FUE uses blades made from the sapphire gem. So although this may seem like a trivial change, the use of sapphire to seriously affect the edge has the structure. Sapphire blades have a V-shaped end compared to the U-shaped end in standard steel blades. The result is that the sharper end of the sapphire allows surgeons to make more flawless incisions at a much higher speed. With the increased accuracy in Sapphire FUE there is no risk of damage to the surrounding tissue. In addition, the healing speeds are folded faster with Sapphire FUE due to the sharp end of the blade.
DHI Choi Technique
Similarly, DHI Choi FUE replicates every step of the FUE hair transplantation technique, with the exception of incision and implantation. In DHI, the last two steps are merged into one. This technique uses a pen-like needle that opens channels and simultaneously implants implants. During surgery, nurses usually load the pen with grafts, where the surgeon will then use it to make incisions. Once the stylus is inserted, the surgeon will load the grafts. This makes the process faster, but because it exposes the delicate grafts to extreme action; there is an increased risk of graft damage, leading to poor results.
Although the FUE technology, together with its variants, entails higher costs, the value and satisfaction gained with it outweigh the financial factor. In other words, patients get value for money.
You have now completed the most critical parts of the hair transplant in lahore process, such as candidacy, choosing the right clinic and now choosing the right treatment. However, it does not end here, after that the familiarity with the chain of events increases.
