Hair Transplant Techniques
There’ve been a variety of hair transplant techniques that were popular at one time, then gave way to new, improved options.
In New Jersey, FUE (follicular unit extraction) has been in use for decades but only recently was fine-tuned to the point that it is now the leading, popular option to restore hair for men and women.

The strip method, known as FUT, involves surgically removing strip of scalp from the back of the head where hair growth is robust. Then, stereomicroscopic dissection allows the hair transplant surgeon to create tiny, individual grafts and transfer them to the recipient site on the scalp. This method remains the most common option for those with significant hair loss progression and those who require high numbers of grafts to be available in one single session. FUE is now performed with medically advanced equipment that automates the process of graft removal and allows for precise, single graft transplant without creating the long, incision scar of the past.

In New Jersey, FUE is the less invasive hair transplant option and can be used to restore hair at the hairline, crown, face, brows and even to cover FUT linear scars. Though a higher number of grafts can be created in a single FUT session, many patients now opt to have FUE as a follow up to further refine and perfect their results, including scar coverage. Facial hair for men is enjoying a fashion come back but the truth is, facial hair growth can often be patchy and uneven. FUE is a simple, effective and permanent way to ensure that your mustache or beard grow the way you want. The small holes created with the punch tool leave a barely-there scar 1 mm or less in diameter, so the method is often called “scar less”. These tiny, round scars are well-hidden throughout the back of the head and allow the patient to wear their hair short if they wish.
