What is an FUE hair transplant?
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant is a surgical hair transplant procedure. It involves the removal of hair grafts from your donor area, usually the back of your head. The back of your head has the maximum number of fertile hair grafts. Hence, individual hair grafts are carefully extracted from the donor area and implanted into the bald area. Per hair, graft contains 2 to 4 hair strands.
Dr. Shankar Sawant, with his proven experience in performing more than 2000 hair transplant surgeries, has introduced an advanced version of the FUE technique called ‘Dr. Shankar Sawant’s Modified FUE technique’. The doctor has also pioneered direct-FUE. Dr. Shankar's modified FUE technique is worldwide followed and is also called AFUE or BioFUE. It is a very effective treatment to get back your natural-looking voluminous hair in less time. It ensures the survival of hair grafts for a longer time compared to other hair transplant techniques. Hence, it is the best FUE hair transplant in Mumbai.
At our clinic, we are 100% focused on providing Dr. Shankar Sawant’s Modified FUE Technique. All the extremely skilled doctors at our Rejoice Hair Transplant Clinic are proficient in implementing this highly recommended technique. Hence, Rejoice Hair transplant clinic is the best hair transplant clinic in Mumbai.
Dr. Shankar Sawant’s modified FUE technique
Step one: preparation
First, we shave and wash the head. To numb the scalp, we inject anesthesia so that you won’t feel any pain during the surgery.
Step two: punching holes
We punch incision around the graft in the donor area. After punching we do not remove the grafts immediately. We keep the grafts on the scalp for some time so that the blood supply stays intact in the graft.
Step three: preparing hairline
In the meantime, we design and mark the front area where the grafts will get implanted. We also create a hairline. We then move on to creating holes for these grafts for implantation.
Step four: removal of hair grafts
We start removing the punched hair grafts from the donor area and wash them immediately to clean the clotted blood which remains around the grafts. This step ensures the development of a new blood supply to the hair in the implanted area.
Step five: nourishing hair grafts
After cleaning the grafts, we keep them in the platelet-rich plasma solution for some time. This facilitates the growth and nourishment of the grafts so that the hair growth is faster.
Step six: implantation of hair grafts
These nourished grafts are then implanted permanently as per the design on the bald area to get natural hair transplant results. We aim to implant 40 to 50 hair grafts per square centimeter for larger density.
Recovery time of the surgery
- Day 1 – After the surgery, you can go home on the day.
- Day 2 – You need to visit the clinic for the dressing of the extracted and implanted area.
- Day 3 – You need to stay at home and take a rest.
- Day 4 – You can get back to work
- Day 8 – You need to visit the clinic for the final cleaning of the implanted region so that no scars are visible.
Yes, because of our advanced technique, after 8 days, no one can tell that you have done a hair transplant treatment.

Benefits of FUE hair transplant
We recommend this technique to most of our patients because of the many benefits that it provides:
Since we take a lot of care during the extraction and implantation of the grafts, there is no damage to the patient. We do not use any chemicals or external medicines in the affected area. Thus, the safety factor is much higher.
- Enhanced appearance
As we take the transplanted hair from the patient’s scalp there is no variation in color or texture of hair. There is no scar left on the extracted and implanted area. The hair appears natural and gives a confident, attractive look after the transplantation.
- Faster and permanent results
As we nourish the grafts before implanting, the patients start getting results at the end of 3rd month itself. Our patients are happy and satisfied as they can see the desired result within 6 to 7 months, of the surgery. Hence, it is a more reliable, permanent, and natural-looking solution to hair issues.
Side-effects of the FUE hair transplant
Patients usually worry about the side effects of the FUE hair transplant treatment on the brain. They fear something negative might happen to their brain or memory. Well, there is nothing to worry about. We use local anesthesia only about 3mm to 4mm on the head and not beyond that. Hence, there will not be any damage to the brain.
As it is surgery, there will be minor pain on the day of surgery but we give medication to reduce the pain.
Some patients may experience swelling on the forehead. As the grafts require some nourishment to develop blood supply, it swells. It rarely happens to our patients and the swelling disappears on its own, and if not, we prescribe medication that will recover within 2 days. All you need to do is follow all the precautions after a hair transplant.
