Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

This technique was previously termed Follicular Unit Extraction and was published in 2002 by Dr Bernstein and Dr Rassman

This technique involves the extraction of individual follicular units (FU) or follicles from the donor area and implantation in the recipient area. It established the use of a small, circular punch which aided in the incision of the skin and separation of surrounding tissue from the graft. This technique gained popularity in the next few years after facing initial criticism like any other.

In the year 2018, the term ‘extraction’ was replaced by ‘excision’ in an attempt to emphasise the minimally yet invasive nature of the procedure and avoid misleading patients.

Steps of FUE:

  • Extraction of required follicular units or follicles from the donor area and placement in holding solution.
  • Implantation of the grafts in the recipient area with the help of implanters or forceps.

Advantage of FUE over FUT-

  • Avoidance of linear scar
  • Faster healing time
  • The technique of choice in decreased scalp laxity 

Direct hair transplant (DHT)

With the advent of FUE( Follicular Unit Excision) many surgeons and patients were inclined towards it. This was partly due to the absence of a linear scar in the donor area which enabled patient’s to have buzzed or short hair at the back scalp making it more aesthetically pleasing.

After a due dedication to FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) and understanding, its pros and cons our doctors ventured into FUE. Through the years while working on routine FUE, the doctors made few modifications to it for their practice and published a paper under the title “Direct Hair Transplantation: a modified follicular unit extraction technique” for the first time in the year 2013 April, in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetics surgery. The main aim here is to decrease the ‘out of the body’ time of the grafts and in turn ensure better survivability and growth.


This Direct Hair Transplantation technique comprises of two steps-

  • Pre-made sites – Creation of recipient sites in correspondence to a right angle, direction, depth and optimal density.
  • Simultaneous scoring, extraction and implantation – Scoring of grafts are done by a motorized punch and the extracted grafts are loaded into SAVA implanters( blunt needle implanters). These loaded implanters are then unloaded into the Pre made sites simultaneously.

In the year 2019, they published another research paper; “ Use of Implanters in Premade sites for hair transplantation”, which stressed the use of Implanters.


Key Points of Direct Hair Transplantation 

  • Decreased ‘out of the body’ time for grafts for better survivability. 
  • Use of Implanters for minimal graft handling.

In the year, 2019 they published the book, “Step by Step Hair Transplantation” which included a chapter on the practice of DHT technique at Eugenix. 

Features of Direct Hair Transplant

  • This technique is safe.
  • For extraction and implantation, tiny disposable instruments are used.
  • It provides natural results with a good density depending upon the donor area health.
