In this highly advanced and intricate surgery, the doctor extracts individual follicular hair units directly from the scalp. These individual follicular hair units are taken from a “donor area” of the scalp where hair grows in abundance. These hairs are considered “permanent hairs” as they are not subject to genetic hair loss, such as Male Pattern Baldness or hairline recession.
Unlike more traditional hair transplant surgery, the individual hairs are extracted – rather than a long strip of hairs – before being grafted into areas of the scalp needing hair, the “recipient area”. Because each donor hair is removed individually, there is no noticeable linear scarring. This is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure that requires no stitches. This is significant for those wanting to wear short hair styles, as the “pinpoint” scarring that occurs in FUE procedure are barely noticeable.
The surgical procedure – removal and grafting of the hair units – is only one part of this innovative technology. Our doctors understand the aesthetics of how hair grows so that each transplanted hair grows in a natural direction, blending with your own natural hair. After all, the entire point of your investment is to recreate the natural appearance of your hair, its patterns and tendencies, and, most importantly, your hairline.
Though Follicular Unit Extraction is a straight-forward process, it is not without certain risks. Only a well-trained, experienced, and qualified surgeon can reduce risk, reduce pain and complications, while achieving the best possible aesthetic result. Our doctors perform all procedures.
Not all individuals suffering from hair loss conditions are eligible for this procedure. The cost for FUE Surgery depends on how many individual follicular hair units are needed to cover the balding areas of the scalp. We offer a free consultation so that you can make an informed decision about your options to solving your hair loss.
