Rashid M. Rashid, MD, PhD., is one of the biggest names in hair restoration throughout Texas.
Dr. Rashid operates one of the very few FUE exlcusive hair clinics in the world. FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction. It is one of the most advanced hair transplantation techniques in the world. No knife, no scalpel, no stitches, no linear scar. Truly minimally invasive and fast healing time compared to traditional hair transplant procedures.
FUE is presently the most sought after alternative to traditional strip hair transplant procedures for the treatment of baldness, hair loss and alopecia. Many clinics claim to offer FUE in order to keep up with the demand and to have "bragging" rights for being able to tell their patients that they offer the latest and the most advanced in hair transplant technologies. However, the truth is that there are very few truly experienced FUE hair transplant specialists in the world. Many hair physicians claim that they offer FUE in order to attract new patients, but at the consultation they invariably convince the hair loss patients that the traditional strip procedure is more appropriate for the patient's conditions and circumstances, a strategy commonly known as "bait-and-switch" in our community.
