FUE technique using implanters

“FUE technique using implanters” is an extremely refined technique of hair restoration performed only by a handful of surgeons globally. In conventional follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedure, cutting and extraction of hair follicles using motors and motorised punches is done, creation of reception holes and placement of grafts using forceps leads to their excessive handling, which might culminate in poor uptake of damaged follicles resulting in low density and delayed results . Whereas in FUE technique using implanters , individual follicles are plucked out from the back of the head by a minimally invasive technique and a disposable hand held device MANUALLY and implanted one by one in the bald area without creation of any reception holes using a pen like device called the transplanter. The use of motorised punches and thick needles is avoided. There is minimal handling of grafts resulting in almost 99% survival of the hair follicles.

It’s a scar less procedure without any pain or bleeding. Patient is fit to go back to work from the very next day. The final growth takes 6 to 9 months to show and is permanent. The whole procedure takes about 4 to 6 hours with regular breaks. In one day 5000 to 6000 hair follicles can be implanted. Apart from back of the scalp other areas of the body like beard area, chest area and back can be used for extraction of follicles. Patient does not require to shave off his hair if 2000 to 2500 follicles are required, however if the count exceeds 2500 then shaving off hair is required. Cosmetic reconstruction of eyebrows, beard as well as creation of widow’s peak can be done. Scarring alopecia as well as stable vitiligo patches can also be treated by FUE technique using implanters method. Guaranteed 100% natural look post transplant !!!


Instant Follicular Hair Unit Transplant (IFHUT), an innovative technique, involves extraction of hair follicle one by one from the safe donor area, located on the back of the scalp, and implanting them immediately after extraction. In IFHUT the FUE technique using implanters is done in a modified way where only one step is followed before implantation, resulting in the graft time out of the body to be as less as 30 seconds. The graft is immediately loaded in the transplanter after extraction and implanted within a few seconds These hair follicles are by enlarge not susceptible to male pattern baldness, and are likely to grow permanently in their new location. IFHUT is a promising alternative for small sessions where extraction of hair follicles with instant direct placement is done where by the time the hair stays out of body is reduced to few seconds to one minute, improving the graft survival significantly, thus ensuring almost 100% follicles uptake resulting in a better, faster, denser growth.
