The FUE Transplant Process

hair surgery equipment

During an FUE procedure, follicular units are extracted from primarily the back and side of your head, although sometimes from other regions of a patient’s body.

At surgery, Dr. Stoller removes hairs one by one, spaced out every other of more. The surgery is done in this matter because hair does not grow back in donor sites, however it is easily camouflage by existing hair.*

Grafts extracted via FUE are much more sensitive than that of FUT, as the extraction technique leaves much less protective tissue around the hair follicles. Having performed over 5,000 hair transplants, Dr. Stoller knows how to handle the grafts so they will properly grow in the donor sites.*

After placing the graft in a holding solution and the health is determined to be the best possible, Dr. Stoller begins the implants; precisely pinpointing where the new hairs will be transplanted and how to create the dense hair and shape that you are seeking.*

In one sitting Dr. Stoller may extract over 2000 units for large areas such as the crown or as little as 500 for eyebrow hair transplants.*Individual results may vary.


Little Pain

With 25 years of in-hospital surgical experience, Dr. Stoller utilizes the safest and most efficient anesthesia and methods for pain control both during the procedure and afterwards.


A policy of Dr. Stoller is to have a chaperone pick you up after surgery make sure to have a friend or family member come with you to assure you return home or to your hotel safely.

Most Asked Questions About FUE Transplants

Are you looking for a permanent fix for hair loss? If so, FUE hair transplant might be for you. Although the results are different for different people, you can expect the results to last a long time. This is good news for those who no longer want to worry about hair loss. The results of the FUE transplant procedure will last a lifetime as long as the graft is chosen carefully from the permanent area. Also, hormonal changes should not affect the graft. Some patients may experience a depletion of their donor area as they age. In this case, the transplanted hair can experience the same phenomenon. However, this does not apply to all patients.
If you are considering an FUE hair transplant, you might be wondering if this procedure is safe. Of course, each procedure can be different, which means that some people can have an adverse reaction. However, most patients who undergo this surgery do not have permanent problems.
The method of removing individual hair units allows collection without leaving linear scars on the scalp. Immediately after the procedure, several small wounds appear in the area where the hair has been removed. After about 3 to 5 days the wounds close and the resulting small scabies disappear after the first week. In the next week, it will be challenging to determine where the graft has been removed.
When performed by an experienced and qualified hair restoration doctor, the result must look so natural that others cannot say that the hair has been transplanted.

Patients usually report almost no pain during or after the procedure. Sedation is given at the beginning of the procedure, followed by periodic subcutaneous local anaesthesia. In rare cases, patients may experience mild discomfort, itching and swelling after the procedure, which resolves within a few days. We provide patients with pain relief medications after the procedure. However, medication can usually keep the pain under control.
Shortly after an FUE hair transplant, new hair looks more like a beard on the head. Transplanted hair can grow very gradually and then enter the active telogen phase and most likely fall out. The transplanted hair grows again when entering the anagen phase. Once the hair is in the Anagen growth phase, it grows normally.
