FUE: Follicular Unit Extraction
Our office specializes in FUE (follicular unit extraction), a form of transplantation that minimizes scar appearance and makes for a seamless recovery. This procedure is done by taking individual hair follicles from your skin and moving them to another part of your body where hair’s thinner or absent
The process starts with a consultation. Not everyone is a candidate and we never want to push something on someone who doesn’t need it. During your consultation, we evaluate both the site of hair loss, as well as the donor site. Shortly after, our team circles back after discussing the procedure, amount of grafts needed, etc and plan out the process.
We generally do hair transplants on weekends to ensure privacy. Procedures can take 6-10 hours depending on the amount of hairs transferred.
A small area is shaved on the back of the scalp (donor site) and hairs are harvested. Number of hairs depends on the amount needed for desired aesthetic look
The hairs are then separated and prepped for implantation
Our team designs the new hairline and creates small openings to plant the follicles. Over the rest of your appointment, individual follicles are placed.
During your procedure, all patients are provided the ability to enjoy VIRTUAL REALITY. Most patients lose themselves in the enjoyment of cinema and forget they are in a procedure. We also offer pro-nox to help with any discomfort as needed.
It is important to note- results may not be seen until around 6 months (full result around 1 year) after the procedure.
