FUE Hair Transplant
FUE Hair Transplants for Hair Loss
An FUE Hair Transplant involves extracting healthy hair grafts from a donor site and reinserting them into problem areas.
The hair grafts are extracted one at a time by a minimally invasive device.
What is a FUE Hair Transplant?
In general, a Hair Transplant is a procedure that involves moving healthy hair that you already have on your scalp to another area that may be experiencing thinning or balding.
More specifically, a FUE Hair Transplant involves extracting healthy hair grafts one by one from a donor site and reinserting them into problem areas. The grafts are removed and retransplanting using a one millimeter punch device.
Apart from healthy new hair, FUE Hair Transplants leave behind very minimal scarring, if any at all. While some individuals develop scar tissue at the graft extraction sites, these scars are so small (a one millimeter diamter dot), they’re barely visible to the naked eye. Additionally, there are no sutures (stitches) involved at any step in the procedure.
FUE Hair Transplants procedures are done while the patient is under a local anesthetic—you will be awake, yet comfortable and relaxed during the procedure.
Is a FUE Hair Transplant right for me?
The short answer? Our GetHairMD™ team will help you determine whether the procedure is right for you.
FUE hair restoration procedures are designed to deliver excellent results for both men and women. While most people can get the treatment, there are some factors that come into play to determine if you’re an ideal candidate. Taken together, these include the number of grafts necessary to produce the desired results, the density and quality of the donor hair, hair texture, and the potential for future hair loss.
The GetHairMD™ network of physicians will determine if you are a suitable candidate for this hair restoration procedure. If deemed the right procedure for you, one of our physicians will work with you to prepare, and ultimately perform the transplant.
