New York FUE procedures
The frontal hairline is the first place most men notice hair loss. While those temporal peaks retreat further and further, the forehead seems to expand as well. Male pattern baldness got its nickname from the predictable pattern the genetic condition follows. New York FUE procedures are often sought to create more youthful hairlines for men of all ages.

FUE in New York: how does it work?
The methods for permanently grafting hair follicles have advanced considerably in recent years. This method has made hair transplantation faster, less invasive and nearly scarless. Short for follicular unit extraction, FUE allows the hair transplant surgeon to extract individual grafts one by one from the donor site at the back of the head. They are then implanted to the balding areas. The spaces left through extraction are so tiny that they heal into pale dots and hide well in the remaining hair. Individual strands can be placed at the hairline in the correct density and direction to mimic natural hairlines. Gone are the days of visible hair plug rows. The trick to a realistic hairline is using small, single follicle graft sizes and artistic placement of each one.
How long does FUE treatment take?
The procedure to replace a significant number of follicles at the crown and hairline can take a full 8 hours. Extracting each graft individually contributes to flawless results, but it’s a meticulous and slow process. Those who add a smaller number of grafts to the hairline will have a shorter session.
Will I have any scars?
People choose FUE in New York because they want to avoid the tell-tale linear scarring of past FUT (strip method) procedures. While there are technically small, round micro-scars left from this procedure, they should be expertly randomized throughout the donor area and end up being virtually invisible. One of the selling points for this procedure is that patients can wear their hair quite short or even buzzed after without signs of an obvious transplant on their scalp.
