FUE Hair Transplant
The concept of hair transplantation is based on the generally accepted premise in the medical world that donor follicles, mostly from the back and sides of our scalp, are resistant to miniaturization and fallout, hence these donor follicles can be used to restore thinning or balding areas for the patient as a long term solution.
While the concept of hair transplantation is very straight forward by itself, there are now different techniques available to deliver a natural looking hair transplant. Presently, the two most widely adopted hair transplant techniques are:
FUE - Follicular Unit Extraction
FUSS - Follicular Unit Strip Surgery
FUSS or sometimes referred to as Strip procedure is the traditional method that involves removing a strip of skin from the patient's scalp in order to harvest the donor follicles. The procedure is very involved and can be quite traumatic for the patient. Healing or recovery time can take well over a month and patients are usually left with a large visible scar in the back of their heads.
For the past 10 years, a new breed of hair transplant technique called FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) has slowly revolutionized the hair transplant industry and established itself to be the most sought after alternative to traditional Strip surgery nowadays.
The medical team at LA Hair Clinic is a strong advocate of FUE technique because they believe that FUE is in the best interest of their patients.
When performed correctly under the hands of a skilled surgeon and his medical team, FUE is many times less invasive than traditional Strip procedures. Unlike Strip surgery, FUE is a "No Stitches, No Sutures" procedure. Healing time is many times faster and most important of all, FUE does not leave a large linear scar in the back of the patient's head. FUE is usually touted as the minimally invasive alternative to traditional Strip surgery.
