FUE in Thailand – Follicular Unit Extraction
Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE is a modern hair restoration technique that “harvests” donor hair in follicular units. FUE can per performed manually or via robotic devices that create small ring-shaped incisions around the follicle tissue then carefully separating the unit from the surrounding tissue. The follicular unit is then extracted from your scalp, leaving behind a tiny hole. The extraction is repeated by our board certified hair doctors until we have harvested enough follicular units for your hair restoration. The procedure requires a very expert hand and can anywhere from 1 to 4 hours depending on the size and scope of the restoration. Larger areas will require multiple sessions. The donation sites are usually less than .9 mm in size. The donation site will normally take anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks to fully heal and will not leave behind obvious scars that are often associated with the strip technique know as FUT. What distinguishes FUE from a conventional Follicular Unit Transplant is the use of thin long hair strips that are carefully dissected into follicular units using a stereomicroscope.
Before your hair grafts are harvested, microscopic recipient points are made in and around the balding areas of your scalp using a very fine needle point device. This process is best performed by hand from a skilled hair surgeon. Follicular units are then carefully placed into the receptor points along with Platelet rich Plasma ( PRP) allowing for the perfect conditions to retain and regrow the transplanted units into new and healthy hair-producing follicles. Our protocol is the only technique in Thailand that combines the creation of new recipient points with PRP and hand extracted follicle units.
The setting of the FUE grafts are basically the same for FUT and FUE processes. The only real difference is in the method of extraction, and the quality and quantity of hair grafts obtained with each technique.
NeoGraft FUE , Robotics & Other Mechanical Implementations for Follicular Unit Extraction
Robotic Follicular Unit Extraction requires a mechanical device to extract and implant. For some patients, this automatic tool does have its advantages. For others, our experiences has shown that robotic placements cannot be substituted and will require human touch. Extracting and implanting follicular units is an art and process results from robotic transplants will be substantially different.
Thai Medicals’ PRP Enriched F.U.E. Hair Restoration protocol used proprietary technology and is done by the hand of our experienced hair surgeons. Robotic Hair Transplantation technique such as NeoGraft, RotoCore,Robotic F.U.E, 3-step Extraction or ARTAS Robotics are alternative options for some. Please contact us to see which technique is right for you.

*Graft density of 35 grafts per square cm is recommended.Here is what you have selected:
Value of zero is equivalent to complete baldness of an area.
Increase of value indicates shift towards appearance of total hairs to full restoration at maximum value.
Baldness: 0 | Recommended Value: 35 | Full Restore: 50
Advantages of Non-Mechanized F.U.E Micrografting
- No Scalpel incisions means No Linear Scars!
- Faster Healing time with our PRP + FUE – as little as 3-5 nights in Bangkok or Phuket
- No Stitches are Needed
- State of the art PRP + F.U.E hair restoration technique
Ideal Candidates for Follicular Unit Extraction
Since F.U.E. doesn’t leave behind scars,it may be a better option for those that like to have a short hair style. It also may be better for active people including those involved in strenuous tasks, like athletes. Our technique may also be very useful for men or women who previously had hair restoration using F.U.T or those who reacted badly to the conventional strip method or for those that have an extremely tight hairline or scalp.
