Dr. Woods introduced this method in 1966. But unfortunately this technique was not accepted by the people as the information provided about it was insufficient. In 2002 Dr.Bernstein and Dr. Rassman referred this metod as FUE Method.
Following are the points that differentiate between FUE and FUT method:
- Scalp does not produces any strip.
- Scalpel or blades are not used to incise the donor.
- Special biopsy needles are used to for extracting follicular units.
Initially only 300 to 400 grafts were produced during the first session. But with the upgradation of instrumental tools the number of grafts produced increased to 2000. This change increased the acceptance of FUE Method for both doctors as well as patients.
Lets go through the different phases involved in FUE Method
- Local Anaesthesia and Sedation
- Receiving Hair Grafts from the Donor
- Receiving Hair Grafts from the Donor includes:
a) Dissection of the Follicular Grafts
b) Collection of the Dissected Grafts One by One
- Micro channel Development of the Recipient
- Implantation of the Grafts
