The Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant Method Explained!
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), performed in Buckhead Atlanta, at Buckhead Hair Restoration is a minimally invasive method of hair restoration. Follicular Unit Extraction is different from the traditional Strip Method and dissection (FUG).
FUE requires individually extracting one follicular unit at a time from the scalp directly, instead of removing an entire strip of scalp, which causes a linear scar and requires a longer healing period.
Why choose the Follicular Unit Extraction Technique?
This method of hair restoration can be ideal for female or male patients who like to wear their hair short, or in different styles. It is also advantageous for patients that scar easily and is the recommended method for all hair textures. FUE leaves no linear scar in the donor area, and each follicle containing 2-6 hairs on average is extracted directly from the donor site (back of the scalp). The process is repeated until enough follicles have been harvested for the hair transplant. The donor site usually heals over the course of 5-7 days. The recovery time is minimal, and the hair grows back naturally with 6-9 months. Full results are seen at 12-15 months after the hair transplant.
