In Lahore Pakistan, there are many surgeons who are internationally renowned for their work. Hair transplant surgery may be easy for the patient since it can be performed in a clinic but it is a careful procedure for the surgeon. Not all surgeons have the skills and expertise required to perform the follicular unit extraction (FUE). FUE method needs a careful eye so that the follicles being planted on the recipient site are planted in the same direction and pattern as that of the hair existing on the scalp. In case a surgeon does not keep the same growth pattern in mind, the results are unnatural and detectable from a distance. The FUE method was introduced in early 2000s and was first performed in Australia. It is by far the best hair restoration method available and many surgeons practice the FUE method. While older methods leave scars on the scalp, the FUE method is preferred since it does not leave any scar and a people suffering from a higher degree of baldness can turn to it. The FUE method involves extraction of hair follicles from an area of good hair growth and then they are planted on the bald patch. The hair follicles are planted under the effect of local anesthesia and can be performed in a clinical environment. There are not many instruments used except microscopes and surgical instruments to make incision punches and extracting follicles. A tiny hollow needle is used to incise punches and the whole procedure can either be done in a single session or multiple sessions according to the degree of baldness. The post surgery recovery period is not more than a few days since there are very few side effects of hair transplants. The latest technique of FUE method is the neograft, which is a mechanical device that extracts hair follicles through a vacuum and then plants it on the bald patch. There are many people who are reluctant to use neografts since they trust human judgment more than machines. Although the neograft method may be cheaper than a manual FUE surgery but less people turn to neografts as compared to the ones who go for manual FUE procedure. The FUE method is a tedious job since hair follicles are extracted and planted one at a time but all this labor is worth the results since the most natural results are produced through this method. Due to a short recovery period required after surgery, the patients can carry on with their daily routines regularly.
