We offer our patients the best and latest technology with our FUE hair transplants. An FUE hair transplant is when individual grafts are removed from the back and sides of the scalp and transplanted into the areas of hair loss.
Over the past five years or so, FUE has gradually become a better choice for hair transplants compared to the more traditional method of hair transplantation, FUT (follicular unit transplantation). FUE has become more popular because the scarring is less noticeable and the downtime is minimal, as compared to FUT. Patients will have some red pin pricks and scabbing in the areas of the scalp where the hairs are taken from and transplanted to, but these will go away within a week. With the strip-method procedure, a strip of the scalp is surgically removed to obtain the donor grafts. This linear scar can be covered up if you prefer to wear your hair long, but it can be seen if you cut your hair short or shave it.
