What is an FUE Hair Transplant?
The FUE or follicular unit hair transplant is currently the most innovative procedure available to restore hair loss. This procedure replaces lost hair by transplanting tiny grafts of skin containing individual hair follicles from areas of plentiful hair growth on the head to balding areas. The FUE hair transplant procedure produces natural-looking results that simulate you hair’s natural growth pattern.
How does the FUE Hair Transplant work?
Dr. Austin and Dr. Medina skillfully performs NeoGraft™ follicular unit extraction (FUE), the most advanced procedure for hair transplant available today. Typically, the procedure is performed by removing a strip of hair-bearing skin from a discreet area of the scalp that can easily be camouflaged. The strip is then split into hundreds of smaller grafts of “follicular units.” Some of these tiny grafts may contain up to four or five hairs, but most contain only one or two hairs. These individual, minute, follicular units are then inserted into tiny incisions in the target areas where hair growth has ceased. This precise and laborious technique allows Dr. Austin and Dr. Medina to precisely craft each individual hair transplant procedure, reproducing natural hair growth patterns in each patient.
How many FUE hair restoration treatments will I need?
While every treatment is considered permanent in the treated area, hair loss may continue throughout life, and you may require follow-up treatments in other areas in the future.
