What is the difference between FUE and other types of techniques?

There are two primary surgical techniques used in performing hair transplantation- FUT (STRIP) and FUE. With the FUT technique, a section of scalp is removed with a scalpel. The scalp is brought together with either sutures or staples leaving a linear scar in the back of the scalp. The hair follicles or hair grafts are inserted into tiny slits placed by the surgeon in the balding area.
With automated FUE a minimal depth scoring punch device is used to loosen the follicle from the surrounding tissues. The small naturally occurring hair follicle units are then removed directly from the donor area. With the FUE procedure, a 0.8 or 1.0 mm punch minimal depth scoring excision is used in the skin around the upper part of the hair follicles. The hair follicle is then extracted directly from the scalp and manually placed into tiny slits in the balding area similar to the FUT method.

EVALUATION

HEAR
FROM OUR
PATIENTS

A good candidate for a hair transplant is when they have a stable supply of donor hair which is suitable to cover the current and future areas of hair loss. Since it is very difficult to assess the long-term stability of donor hair and the degree of future hair loss when patients are very young, it is best to wait to have a hair transplant until at least in the mid 20’s.

PROCEDURE
OF FUE

How is FUE done (preferably in steps)?

When you arrive at our clinic we will begin with running your labs a CBC, then you will be given a sedative which will help you relax. Then a member of our team numbs your scalp with a local anesthetic. No general anesthesia is required, so you are awake during your procedure and can take breaks to get up and move around or use the restroom.
Our team of physicians then perform your procedure, removing follicular units — tiny clusters of 1 to 4 hairs — from one area of your scalp, and inserting them where your hair is thinning. Our physicians take special care to recreate a natural-looking hairline by carefully adjusting the angle of follicle insertion. During this time, you rest comfortably, with breaks as needed. There is no incision, and you are not able to feel anything on your scalp during the treatment.

NON SURGICAL,
NO SURGERY MARKS.

Who is eligible for FUE transplant?

A good candidate for a hair transplant is when they have a stable supply of donor hair which is suitable to cover the current and future areas of hair loss. Since it is very difficult to assess the long-term stability of donor hair and the degree of future hair loss when patients are very young, it is best to wait to have a hair transplant until at least in the mid 20’s.

What are the short term and long term symptoms of a FUE patient?

In the coming months, transplanted hairs go through a natural cycle of falling out and then regrowing. You can chose to undergo further treatments if you’d like thicker hair. After about 6 months, your final results become evident. Your transplanted hair will last as long as it would have at its donor site.

i.e. two days before surgery day, it is recommended that the patient does not drink any alcohol beverages, meats, etc.

What happens after FUE transplants is done?

I.e. FUE transplant is a minimally invasive procedure that requires one hour of recovery and then patient can continue doing most activities except drinking alcohol, performing strong physical activities and too much exposure to the sun.
