THE STEPS TO FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT SURGERY
Follicular Unit Excision and Extraction (FUE) is a surgical hair harvesting method used to obtain donor hair one graft at a time. FUE does require that the donor area on the back and sides of the head be shaved short to give the surgeon increased visibility of the available donor zone and individual hair grafts. Once harvested, these grafts are then used in Microscopic Follicular Unit Transplantation (MFUT) during which the same steps are followed as Microscopically Dissected Elliptical Excision (MDEE) with your surgeon creating recipient sites and the grafts being gently, but meticulously placed into the recipient sites at the proper angle and orientation. This innovative harvesting technique is great for patients looking for an alternative to the traditional MDEE method in which a thin strip of tissue is harvested and the grafts dissected under the Ziering Scope. At The Envie Cosmetic Clinic, we offer manual FUE.
Patients concerned about having a linear scar, who want to wear their hair very short or whose scalp is too tight for strip harvesting, are typically good candidates for FUE procedures. They’re exactly who physicians had in mind when they developed FUE. One misconception about FUE is that it is a scar less procedure. The reality is that FUE procedures leave tiny, pinpoint scars which are camouflaged by your hair as the shaved hair begins to regrow.
