FOLLICULAR UNIT EXTRACTION
FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT
Unlike donor strip harvesting that removes a large linear strip of hair bearing tissue from the back of the scalp, FUE hair transplantation entails the surgeon extracting individual hair follicles. The incision in FUE hair transplantation is less than 1mm and leaves a tiny dot scar that is virtually invisible. With FUE patients can shave or cut their hair short in the back and their is no visible scar,
HOW IT WORKS
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.
