What Is FUE?

Thinning of hair and hair loss are normal aspects of ageing, affecting both men and women. 

However, hair loss can also occur due to certain medical conditions such as alopecia, which results in male pattern baldness or female pattern baldness. Losing hair can not only knock off your sense of confidence but also affect your mental health. This is why Dr Malay Mehta provides the best FUE hair transplant in India, making sure that you walk away with newfound confidence.

Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE for short, is one of the best hair transplant procedures currently offered globally.

During your FUE procedure, Dr Malay Mehta, one of the best hair transplant surgeons in India, would take follicles from one area of your scalp – typically the back of the scalp – and implant them onto the area in need of hair.

The FUE transplant helps thicken areas of your scalp which are thinning and can be used for other areas such as your face for beard or moustache regrowth.

How the Sapphire FUE
Procedure Works and the Timeline

In order to achieve the maximum benefit of hair restoration, a specific number of steps must be followed.
Thanks to advancements in technology, Dr Malay Mehta can perform your FUE transplant using sapphire blades.



  • Consult with Dr Malay Mehta
  • Assess your suitability for the FUE hair transplant
  • Discuss which part the hair will be grafted from
  • Discuss risks of the procedure
  • Set a date

graft extraction

  • Using specialized tools such as the sapphire blades, Dr Malay Mehta will begin your graft extraction from the donor area.
  • Using sapphire blades allows for minimal scab formation and enhanced recovery times by opening smaller micro incisions than those created by steel blades.

graft preservation

  • The grafts are preserved in a special substance
  • Each follicle is individually preserved in a sterile plasma solution
  • Grafts are refrigerated until the implantation is ready

graft implantation

  • Once the suitable number of follicles have been extracted from the donor area, Dr Mehta will begin implanting your follicles
  • Local anaesthetic is used to help reduce pain

post-op care

  • You will be given specific instructions to abide by following your procedure
  • A leaflet about side effects and what to expect will be given to you
  • When to come back for a follow-up consultation

Why do we use Sapphire Blades?

Not only are sapphire blades sharp, smooth, and have outstanding durability. But they also come with various antimicrobial properties which help limit your risk of infection.

Additionally, sapphire blades can be used to perform more precise incisions which are smaller than those created using steel blades.

FUE vs Other Hair Transplant Surgery

The FUE hair transplant is not the only hair transplant procedure around.
In fact, there are various other transplants used widely, each of which has its own set of benefits and disadvantages.


A Follicular Unit Transplantation, otherwise known as FUT, works similarly to the FUE hair transplant. However, the main difference between the two is that during FUT, your surgeon will extract an entire strip of graft follicles and implant the follicles directly into the specified area without the use of a sterile plasma solution. FUT is an older method that leaves more scars and has a longer recovery time.


A Direct Hair Transplant is yet another alternative that uses fine instruments to extract the grafts and implant the follicles simultaneously. This procedure is less common and often timely and costly. Individual follicular grafts using FUE enhance recovery and achieve greater results.
