What Is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)?
Hair loss can be a difficult thing to deal with. It can make it difficult to feel comfortable with your appearance which can lead to the development of self-esteem issues. Many people turn to products and treatments to try and regrow hair and prevent further hair loss, but many of these products provide temporary or unsatisfactory results. Thankfully, advancement in the field of hair restoration has allowed for the development of techniques that can provide long-lasting and natural-looking results.
Restore the Appearance of Your Hair with FUE
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a surgical hair restoration procedure that can combat hair loss, restore the appearance of the hair, and reshape the hairline using your own natural growing hairs. The process involves removing follicular units of hair that can contain 1 to 4 hair follicles and transplanting the follicular units to the area of the scalp where hair loss is occurring. The follicular units are carefully punched out individually which avoids leaving a long linear scar that is characteristic of other hair transplant procedures
The FUE procedure allows the doctor to precisely place each individual unit of hair so that the results provided look as natural as possible. The procedure can take anywhere from eight to 12 hours to complete and can involve transplanting around 1,000 grafts. The exact amount of grafts needed will vary between patients based on the amount of hair loss that has occurred and other factors.
