What is difference hair follicle transplant, Latest Electric FUE and automatic FUE transplantation

Is the Moon Outside The Hair Transplanted Rounder?

Hair transplant surgery is still a relatively novel operation for many people, but the history of hair transplant surgery has been more than 70 years. It can be traced back to the 1-2 hair follicle micro-transplants performed by Hajime Tamuna for female patients with pubic hairlessness during World War II. The actual surgical procedure used in the clinic was in the 1950s. Orentreich proposed the organization block transplantation method – the rotation method.

1. What is a hair follicle transplant?

The hair transplant methods still used in clinical operations are mainly FUT (hair follicle unit transplantation) and FUE (follicular unit extraction transplantation technology), but in fact, FUT is actually an earlier scalp strip transplantation method. However, the early scalp method mainly refers to micro-minimal grafts, and with the concept of follicular units proposed in 1994, follicular unit transplantation (FUT) gradually replaced micro-tissue transplantation.


The latest electric FUE and automatic FUE transplantation methods


Both of them use the hair follicle extraction needle with a diameter of about 1 mm to transfer the hair follicle. However, the former is the operator who first judges the growth direction of the hair follicle by the naked eye and then transfers the hair follicle with the FUE machine, which requires precise matching of the hand and eye; and the representative of the automatic FUE is ARTAS. The hair transplanting robot works on the principle that the machine itself can scan the distribution and direction of the hair, and then the FUE needle is used to extract the hair follicle by computer.

PS: Because the current ARTAS robot intelligent degree and precision can not exceed the human eye and human hand, the current main force of hair transplantation is still electric FUE, but I believe that with the development of technology and technology, the future will be automatic FUE machine. The era.

2. What is FUT?

A scalp strip with a width of less than 2 cm was cut from the posterior occipital region of the patient. The incision was directly sutured. The assistant divided the scalp strip into several individual hair follicle grafts, and then implanted the graft into the bald area, usually removed 7-10 days after surgery. The posterior occipital suture.

3. What is FUE?

The high-speed rotating hollow needle within 1 mm in diameter (currently part of the mechanism and using a smaller 0.9 or even 0.8 mm diameter pinhole) is transferred to the donor follicular unit, and the obtained follicular unit graft is planted into the bald area.

According to the hair transplantation data published by the ISHRS official website, the amount of surgery for FUE is increasing year by year, and the amount of surgery for FUT is correspondingly decreasing year by year:
However, traditional FUT still has many institutions abroad to adopt this method of planting hair. The main reason is that the density of head hair follicles of Western ethnic groups is not as high as that of Asian races. If FUE single hair follicle extraction technology is adopted, the amount of hair follicles extracted and supplied The original beauty of the hair area has a certain impact.

Asians, especially Chinese yellows, have three characteristics compared with Western Caucasians.

1: It is easy to leave scars after trauma.

2: Hair has straight and black characteristics, which is more suitable for FUE surgery.

3: The Chinese are ingenious. Therefore, the application of FUE technology is much higher than that of foreign technology in Pakistan. It can be said that Pakistan is ahead of the world in terms of the application and understanding of FUE surgery.

According to the analysis of the composition of hair Skill members, the proportion of physicians under the age of 45 has increased year by year:
FUE surgery is a very laborious and time-consuming operation. Without a certain physical strength and vision, it is impossible to undertake such a heavy operation. In combination with the actual situation in Paksitan, the majority of the main public and private institutions with hair transplants in Pakistan are still young and middle-aged physicians who are young and strong,  and the absolute dominant position of those who are under 45 years old.
