About FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a procedure to extract, or to ‘harvest’, donor hair in the follicular unit hair transplantation technique. In Follicular Unit Extraction procedure, a tool is utilized for creating a tiny, circular incision around follicular unit, in the skin, thus separating it successfully from the tissue surrounding it. Then, the unit is directly extracted (pulled) from the scalp to leave a tiny open hole.
The procedure includes extraction of individual follicular units present on the scalp’s backside (benefactor territory) and to transplant them to the bare area (beneficiary territory). The follicles, however, need to be concentrated on the last hair bearing region. Follicles that are concentrated close towards the neck’s scruff or the crown might have hair sparseness, in case the contributor area is powerless to go bald.

Graft survival depends mainly on several factors that are mentioned below:
1. Follicular trauma
2. Biochemical factors:
This refers to the stress found in hair follicles and is experienced, when kept out of body for a good amount of time.
Stress takes place, because of lack of blood supply, oxygen, follicular nutrients, exposure to extreme temperatures, including pH shift.
Once graft is kept in the tissue bed, it then re-exposes to oxygen and sets off a production series of free radical, which might have an effect on graft survival (Ischemia–Reperfusion Injury).
3. Vascular factors:
This refers to the immediate Post-operative oxygenation & revascularization, unlike other organ transplants, where the tissue gets hooked into a new blood vessel. In case of hair transplant, where there is an absence of Vascular Anastomosis, the Follicular Units can be termed as free grafts that tend to absorb oxygen passively from the tissues that surround it.
Neo-vascularization of such free grafts are said to occur within a period of 36 – 48 hours. In the meantime, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) that comprises of enormous growth factors are likely to assist free grafts in getting essential antioxidants and nutrient, while diminishing Neo-vascularization time, which is 18 – 24 hours.
