Hair loss is an issue that has frustrated both people for many years. Thankfully, technical and medical advances in the field of hair restoration have given people today more options than ever to fight hair loss and achieve (or retain) the head of hair that they desire. One such development is the prominence of the hair transplant, and more specifically, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Today, the hair restoration experts here at KA Hair Aesthetics wanted to discuss this specific type of hair restoration surgery in more detail, as well as the benefits that it can provide male and female patients of all ethnic backgrounds.
Follicular Unit Extraction is a hair transplant technique that involves removing hair follicles from one part of the scalp that is not prone to hair loss and implanting them in other areas that are experiencing balding or considerable thinning. The procedure is minimally invasive and sutureless, meaning no stitches will be required. Unlike the other prominent form of hair transplant procedure, Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), FUE hair restoration does not require a long incision, the removal of a strip of tissue from the scalp, or any stitches or staples, meaning the procedure is simpler to undergo and quicker to recover from.
When performed by our experienced hair restoration professionals, undergoing an FUE can provide the following benefits for patients:
- Significant hair restoration to the thinning or balding area, and a natural-looking hairline with more hair.
- Since we use NeoGraft® technology for FUE procedures, there will be no linear scarring to worry about.
- Since FUEs are commonly performed during multiple outpatient treatment sessions, patients can go home the same day and typically return to normal daily activities the following day.
- Can be especially helpful for people who only require a smaller number of grafts.
There is so much more to know about Follicular Unit Extraction and the incredible hair restoration results that it has allowed us to provide to our patients over the years. But with that said, we thought this would be a helpful jumping off point for anyone curious about the procedure and what it is capable of.
