Fast Facts About Follicular Unit Extraction in New York City

There comes a time in almost all hair loss sufferer’s lives when they start to consider getting a hair transplant. Admittedly, there are several options to undergo for this procedure but one of the most popular is FUE transplants. Here are some fast facts that you should know before considering the procedure and improving your life.

What Is It?
This type of hair transplant procedure is donor-based. The hair is removed at the follicle from the donor (the hair on the sides and back of the scalp) and transplanted into the specified region — the “recipient” – where the hair has thinned. This approach is the gold standard of hair transplant surgery.

Why Is It Better?
FUE hair transplant in New York City is considered a suitable method for many. Especially those only requiring a small number of grafts or for those who like to keep their hair very short on the sides and back. For others, the FUT or “strip” technique may be better. It is important to consult with a doctor who performs both.

Advantages of Follicular Unit Extraction
Since FUE hair transplant in New York City is considered a far less invasive procedure when compared to other methods, the healing time is shortened. There is also the ability to harvest from areas we cannot reach with the FUT approach. The scarring can also be very discrete and FUE can be performed in patients with “tight” scalps who cannot undergo FUT.
