FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT
Hair in the top and front are lost because they are genetically susceptible to hormones. Hair on the sides and back are immune (genetically) to hormones and are programmed to grow a lifetime. These hair will continue to grow lifetime, even though it is transplanted to different site. It is a medical fact and has been repeatedly proven over the years.
Hair transplant is a procedure where individual hair follicles are moved from one part of the body (donor area) to the bald part of the scalp (recipient area). It is a minimally invasive procedure.
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a method of graft harvesting in which individual follicles are removed from the donor area, one at a time. The advantages, when compared to traditional strip harvesting, includes less trauma, less visible scarring, more rapid healing and recovery. Although primarily used for graft production from the scalp, FUE has now been utilized for body and beard hair graft extraction.
With proper instrumentation and methods, all patients are good candidates for FUE. FUE is a significant advancement in the field of hair restoration surgery and with experience, the results achieved are superior to those produced with strip harvest technique.
