FUE – The Most Requested Hair Restoration Solution


It’s Time To Find Out What You’ve Been Missing

Did you know that FUE hair transplants are fast becoming the most requested hair restoration solution for both men and women? You may come across the term FUE in NYC and wonder about some of the claims its promoters make. For instance, is it true that FUE is scar less? And, what does FUE stand for anyway?

Hair transplant procedures are designed to transfer healthy, growing hair from one area of the head to another. The donor hair grafts are usually taken from the back and side of the scalp because this is where the most DHT resistant hairs tend to be. They resist falling out due to genetic male pattern baldness and so have better staying power when they are transplanted. In the past, the most common method to obtain hair follicles for transplant was through removal of a strip of scalp from the back of the head. This tissue was dissected under microscope to separate small hair grafts containing a few hair follicles each. These were then implanted into the recipient areas. This method is called FUT, which stands for Follicular Unit Transplantation.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

FUE, on the other hand, stands for Follicular Unit Extraction, and rather than removing a donor scalp strip, In NYC, FUE utilizes an automated robotic system with a hand-held device that punches a tiny follicular graft out of the scalp, one or two at a time. Because the punch is so small, no obvious, linear incisions or scars are needed. The implantation of grafts remains the same with this advanced new method; each graft is carefully placed according to hair direction, appropriate density and angle. The “take rate” for FUE transplanted hair follicles is quite high – upwards of 90% and this means that more of the hairs placed in balding areas with this method will stay and grow, permanently.

Revolutionized The Hair Restoration Industry

Permanent Hair Transplantation

FUE treatment has revolutionized the hair restoration industry because it is the least invasive procedure available for permanent hair transplantation. No scalpel or stitches are required, and patients are comfortable and awake throughout. Topical and/or injectable local anesthetic prevent the patient from feeling any discomfort during the procedure and most people read a book, listen to music or even nap during the 5-6 hour process.

For those who have had a FUT, “Strip Transplant” procedure in the past and find that the visibility of their scar is an issue, FUE can be a very effective option to camouflage and fill in natural looking hair to scarred areas. FUE also makes facial hair transplants more flawless than ever before with individual hairs transferred successfully to patchy beads, eyebrows or facial scars.

So, is FUE scarless? The small micro punches used to remove hair will leave a small dot approximately 1 mm across. These dots are randomly placed throughout the denser areas of the hair so that they aren’t visible to the untrained eye. NYC FUE hair transplant patients can wear their hair short- even buzzed- without their donor sites being visible in most cases.
