Follicle Transfer - Know The Benefits!

Follicle Transfer - Know The Benefits!

What is Follicular transfer (FT) is also known as follicular unit extraction (FUE).

It is a type of hair transplant procedure which is less invasive than the other types. It is performed when the person has a good hair growth at the back or side of the head which becomes the donor’s area.

How is it performed?

  1. The procedure is performed by specially designed instruments under a high powered microscope which provides precision for best and natural results. When the part gets numb the follicles are isolated with a specialized punch device which extracts the follicular units completely with necessary glands. This method is used to separate the surrounding tissue from the follicular unit which results in minimal injury and undetectable scarring.
  2. Then the follicles are removed without any damage to the area. If the scar is left behind it takes few days to heal proceeded by hair growth which takes about weeks.
  3. Then the extracted hair is prepared and sorted for treatment.
  4. Then the follicles are implanted in the scalp by making small incisions by microsurgical needles generally in a group formation of 1-4 to give a natural and recognizable look.
  5. To create a natural hairline transacted hair are used, which will start to grow within weeks naturally. The length of your hair depends upon the follicular units grafts. Approximately 12 months later you will have re-grown hair.
  6. You can get the discharge immediately after the treatment. In 5-7 days the healing takes place after which the redness and swelling disappear.

Advantages of Follicular Unit Extraction

  1. Easy recovery: As there were small incisions made in the procedure which lowers the risk of widening which generally occurs in FUT procedure. This is the reason there are fewer limitations on exercise post-procedure.
  2. Less scarring: FUE doesn’t produce linear scarring on the donor's area because it doesn’t require any sutures, scalpels; due to which you can wear your hair short too.
  3. Quick healing: As there is less scarring, the time required for healing is very less as compared to FUT where the scarring is more, therefore, the healing is slow.

Disadvantages of follicular unit extraction

  1. It’s expensive: As the cost is decided on a number of sessions required for the procedure. FUE requires more sessions than FUT, as this transplants individual follicle units which are more time-consuming.
  2. It’s temporary: In most of the cases it doesn’t last longer than FUT. because in this the follicular units are taken from a various area which leads to thinning of the donor zone and visible scarring.
  3. Shaving: The one who doesn’t like shaving can have a problem. Because FUE requires shaving of donor’s area. Only in advanced procedures like long hair FUE, shaving is not required.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi Can a doctor can assess antral follicle count on day 32 of periods? when an antral follicle count should be measured?

Dr. Ramneek Gupta 96% (19503 ratings)

Antral follicles are small follicles (about 2-9 mm in diameter) that we can see - and measure and count - with ultrasound. Antral follicles are also referred to as resting follicles. Vaginal ultrasound is the best way to accurately assess and count these small structures. Antral follicle counts (along with female age) are by far the best tool that we currently have for estimating ovarian reserve, the expected response to ovarian stimulating drugs, and the chance for successful pregnancy with in vitro fertilization. The number of antral follicles visible on ultrasound is indicative of the number of microscopic (and sound asleep) primordial follicles remaining in the ovary. Each primordial follicle contains an immature egg that can potentially develop and ovulate in the future. When there are only a few antral follicles visible, there are far fewer eggs remaining as compared to when there are more antrals. As women age, they have less eggs (primordial follicles) remaining and they have fewer antral follicles.

Hi, My usg report says sub centimetre follicles in both ovaries and no dominant follicle, what does that mean.
It means in this cycle at this stage one or more follicles which may grow to ovulation are not observed. In short one such report can not say anything. Most of medical challanges need doctor to listen to detailed medical history in form of questions and answers, examination of patient and sometimes reports so meet concerned doctor.

Follicle doesn't get rupture on my 16th day, & I am under follicle monitoring, what will be the reason?

Follicle doesn't get rupture on my 16th day, & I am under follicle monitoring, what will be the reason?
Follicular cysts develop as the result of normal menstrual cycles. If you're a fertile woman of reproductive age, your ovaries develop cyst-like follicles every month. If a follicle doesn't burst or release its egg, it can become a cyst. The cyst can continue to grow and fill with fluid or blood.

When the follicle ruptures it looks irregular as fluid is drained from the follicle. This is good report and means you have ovulated and you should today stay together with your husband. And there is high chance of having pregnancy.

Irregular follicle has no significance, rupture is of significance that you have ovulated, endometrial thickness little less. Most important such one cycle some reports have no value. Pregnancy is possible only on one day of cycle, day of ovulation when ovum is released from ovary of woman. That is why couple should have 12 to 24 cycles of unprotected sex around time of ovulation before going to Gynecologist or infertility specialist for further evaluation and advise, where lot of reports are done and treatment trials take time so patients must be patient.
