FUE Hair Transplant removes hair follicles that are healthy and robust from donor sites on the scalp (typically the sides and back of the head) and transplants them to the balding areas of the head. The donor follicles, also known as grafts, are grafted in one-by-one into the scalp. Choosing a reputable and experienced clinic to have your hair restoration completed at is important, because the aesthetic plan for the angle and direction of the re-planted hairs in re-establishing your hairline can positively or negatively affect the aesthetic outcome of the procedure.
The popularity of the FUE method is soaring because it does not require whole strips of scalp to be excised and the hair grafted out of them. This was how hair transplant was done in the past, and although some locations will still offer it, the strip method is considered antiquated because of the advancements that FUE technology has brought to the table.
As each follicle is selected from the permanent hair zones of the head, it means that these transplanted hairs are resistant to DHT –the hormone responsible for hair loss on the front and top of the scalp, commonly known as male pattern baldness.
