Interlocking FUE Technique: Graft Hair Transplantation for Natural Results

The Interlocking FUE Technique in India represents an approach utilized in hair transplant procedures. FUE, short for Follicular Unit Extraction, is a minimally invasive surgical method in which individual hair follicles are harvested from the donor region, usually located at the back or sides of the scalp, and beard part (lower part if chin) then transplanted into areas experiencing baldness or thinning. Essentially, there are two primary techniques for hair transplantation.

(A) Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE Technique) and (B) Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT Technique)

Interlocking FUE is a modification of the traditional FUE hair transplantation technique. In the Interlocking FUE Technique in India, the surgeon places the extracted hair follicles in a specific interlocking (Zig zag) pattern during the transplantation process. This technique aims to achieve better density and coverage by strategically placing the transplanted follicles in a way that minimizes the visibility of the transplant and creates a more natural-looking result.

With an extensive record of more than 10000 surgeries successful hair transplant surgeries performed in Jaipur and throughout India, achieving authentically natural results has posed a challenge for many. Yet, IFT Hair Science stands as a beacon of excellence in this realm, thanks to its expertise in Follicular Unit Transplantation FUT. Our groundbreaking IFT technique distinguishes us, ensuring that the outcomes you experience are truly exceptional. Through our innovative Interlocking FUE Technique, your hair restoration journey not only yields effective results but also radiates a level of naturalness that exceeds all expectations.

At IFT Hair Science, we proudly introduce the revolutionary Interlocking Hair Transplant technique, known as IFT, which represents a refined iteration of the FUE and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) methods. This technique guarantees the most authentic-looking hair transplant results, rendering it exceedingly difficult to discern between transplanted and natural hair. The hair transplant surgery cost of through that proecedure is also affordable.

Advantages of the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Technique in Hair Restoration include:

  1. Natural-Looking Hair Results: In contrast to conventional methods where hair grows in straight rows, our IFT technique ensures that hair follows a zigzag pattern, closely resembling the natural growth pattern. This strategic placement creates a seamless blend, resulting in an incredibly natural appearance.
  2. Improved Density: Unlike the traditional Follicular Unit Extraction FUE technique, where larger slits limit hair density, our IFT technique employs a special slit blade (sapphire blade) that allows for smaller and denser slits. This innovation enables us to achieve higher hair density and fuller results for our patients.
  3. Faster Healing: Traditional procedures require approximately 10-12 days for wound healing. With the IFT procedure, the use of smaller slits promotes faster healing, typically within 4-5 days. This reduced healing time allows you to resume your regular activities sooner.
  4. Enhanced Graft Survival: To optimize graft survival during the IFT procedure, we employ a specialized graft chilling device. This device maintains a constant temperature, safeguarding the grafts from temperature-related trauma and significantly improving their survival rate.
  5. Team of Specialists and Advanced Implantation: Performing the IFT technique demands a highly skilled team of 5-6 members, including a doctor. The technique's dense slits and advanced needle implanters require expertise and precision. Our team is well-prepared to deliver exceptional results, boasting a graft survival rate exceeding 98%.
  6. Distinguished and Innovative Approach: The IFT technique is frequently advised for individuals in pursuit of a superior and progressive hair transplant experience. Whether it is Follicular Unit Transplantation FUT or FUE, we treat each hair follicle as a vital organ and prioritize its optimal survival rate. Our dedication to advancing hair transplant procedures continues as we explore new frontiers in the field.

Procedure for Interlocking Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Technique


Procedure of Interlocking FUE Technique


  1. Initial Consultation: The process of Follicular Unit Extraction FUE commences with an initial consultation between the patient and the surgeon. During this session, the surgeon evaluates the patient's hair loss pattern, donor hair availability, scalp condition, and discusses the patient's objectives and aspirations.
  2. Preparatory Phase: On the procedure day, the patient's scalp undergoes cleaning and sterilization. The surgeon then marks out the donor and recipient areas in accordance with the surgical plan.
  3. Donor Hair Extraction: Using specialized microsurgical tools such as punches or motorized extraction devices, .7mm - .8mm punch individual hair follicles are meticulously harvested from the donor area, typically located at the back or sides of the scalp. This extraction process aims to minimize tissue damage and preserve follicle integrity.
  4. Creation of Recipient Sites: Small incisions or recipient sites are carefully made in the balding or thinning regions of the scalp where the transplanted hair follicles will be implanted. The surgeon pays meticulous attention to designing these sites to ensure the proper angle, orientation, and density of transplanted hair.
  5. Interlocking Placement of Hair Follicles: In contrast to traditional FUE methods, where follicles may be implanted individually, the Interlocking FUE technique involves strategically placing transplanted follicles in an interlocking pattern. This technique entails positioning the follicles at specific angles and orientations to mimic the natural hair growth pattern and maximize density.
  6. Post-Operative Care: Following the FUT or FUE procedure, the patient receives instructions on post-operative care, including scalp cleaning procedures, application of prescribed medications, and guidelines to avoid activities that could disrupt the healing process.
  7. Follow-up: Subsequent appointments are scheduled to monitor the progress of the transplant and address any concerns or queries the patient may have regarding the FUE or FUT procedure.
