The FUE Method
Follicular Unit Extraction, also known as FUE Hair Transplantation is a procedure that allows the patient to keep their donor hair very short with no apparent scar.
In traditional follicular unit hair transplantation there is always a small linear scar where the hair is removed that is covered by the surrounding hair. If the patient later shaved their head the scar may be visible. This is not the case with FUE’s since every follicular unit is individually extracted leaving the donor area virtually scarless. The trade off is that the procedure takes more time and fewer hairs are transplanted at a time in comparison with a strip harvest procedure.
FUE hair transplant is more popular with young men who want more freedom of styling but does require the surgeon to shave the scalp prior to harvesting. For many women this is not an option and they prefer FUT donor strip harvesting.
We also offer medical therapy for patients in early stage hair loss or for long term hair loss maintenance.
