There is a debate going on whether the additional cost of the FUE hair transplant in Lahore is justified or not. However, there are certain benefits of FUE (follicular unit extraction) transplant method that all experts undisputedly agree. Its ability to harvest donor hair from almost any body part is one such benefit. This technique has dramatically increased the possibility of a good transplant in people having less number of donor hairs on their heads.
We all know that the success of any hair transplant procedure depends on the availability and health of donor hairs. Donor hairs are your own hair, which are extracted from the donor area and planted into the balding area. Therefore, hair transplantation is essentially a redistribution of your existing hairs. No technique is currently available to transplant someone else’s hairs on your head, and there is no method yet to create new hair follicles. Some areas on our head have balding resistant characteristics, like the back and sides of the head. When these hairs are planted into the desired area, they retain their balding resistant properties and remain there for longer periods. In the past, if you did not have sufficient hairs at the back or sides of your head, you could not have a successful transplant. However, FUE method can harvest hair follicles from any part of your body, where they are present in sufficient numbers e.g. chest or legs.
In the traditional strip harvesting method, the surgeon removes a strip of skin containing hair follicles to obtain donor hair follicles. Although, he joins back the skin skillfully, it leaves a scar on the back of your head. Fortunately, this scar can be concealed easily by surrounding hairs. However, strip removal cannot be used to harvest hair follicles from other body parts. After all, would you like a large part of the skin to be removed from your chest or leg?
The FUE method uses an entirely different procedure to harvest hair follicles from the donor area. It harvests hairs from the donor area one by one and leaves only pinhole scars. Due to this variation, FUE can harvest hair follicles from virtually any part of the body without the need of skin removal. Most patients report that those pinhole scars on the body do not bother them.
Even if you have sufficient donor hair on your head at present, you will probably lose those hairs with time. That is the reason you might want to use your body hairs in the first place.
