Direct Hair Transplantation : A Modified FUE

Introduction to Direct Hair Transplant

With the advent of FUE( Follicular Unit Excision) many surgeons and patients were inclined towards it. This was partly due to 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 due dedication on FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) and understanding it’s 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 ensuring better survivability and growth.

This Direct Hair Transplantation technique comprises of two steps-

1. Pre made sites – Creation of recipient sites in correspondence to right angle, direction, depth and optimal density.

2Simultaneous 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 on 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.
