What Is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)?
Follicular unit extraction is a type of hair transplant procedure. It is one of the latest advances in hair transplants. This kind of surgery requires the skills and expertise of a doctor and team. At the Hair Transplant Center – Center, we are experts in using FUE.
FUE is a way to take hair from the scalp without making an incision. The surgeon will use a small needle with slight suction to remove the follicles. FUE is best for people who have balding and thinning areas of their scalp where it would be painful if the doctor made a linear incision. When you get an FUE hair transplant, you will not have any scar on the back of your head. It will be much easier to recover from the surgery, and it will not hurt as bad as what other people experience. Once recovered, you can wear your hair short and no one would see that there is something different about it.
The small holes that are left usually take a few days to heal. When grafts have been removed, there might be marks or scars on the person’s skin where the follicles were taken. The doctor will use different tools to make these small holes less noticeable.
With FUE, many more follicles are taken from a larger area of the donor region than with traditional follicular unit transplantation (FUT).
Complications can happen in hair transplants. You need to have a team of experts that has skill and experience to see good results. Dr. Hamwi, Clinician Gieger, and Clinician Daniels from the Hair Transplant Center – Sarasota have a focus on FUE. They also offer Cole, Ellis, and WAW systems, as well as other FUE restoration options. This allows them to achieve high growth rates and success rates for patients who want to stop losing their hair.
