A follicular unit extraction (FUE) transplant is a minimally-invasive method of surgical hair restoration. The FUE procedure involves removing and relocating healthy hair follicles individually.
The transplanted hair follicles replace dead and nonproductive follicles in areas with low hair density or needing hairline restoration. Local anesthesia ensures you have a comfortable hair transplant experience.
There are two modern hair transplant methods.
With FUE, the team removes one follicle at a time using state-of-the-art tools called The Cole System. Then, they transplant the individual follicles to the area of the scalp where you have thinning or hair loss. FUE is the most advanced modern hair transplantation technique.
The FUT process involves removing small strips of your scalp, each containing multiple follicles. The strips are then dissected into units that are repositioned and secured in the area with hair thinning or loss.
At Hair Restoration Clinic of Granite Bay, the team specializes in FUE hair transplantation due to the ability to rebuild hairlines and balding areas of the scalp without the appearance of overly noticeable scars.
FUE hair transplants offer many benefits, including:
If you have thinning hair, low hair density, or need to rebuild your hairline due to hair loss, an FUE hair transplant can help you meet your goals with the best aesthetic results.
Patients may experience some minor pain, minimal bleeding, or redness around the transplant sites. Some patients have reported mild headaches or a sensation of scalp tightness. These side effects typically resolve fully within a week.
Depending on your hairline and density goals, you could need multiple treatment sessions. Once you've undergone an FUE hair transplant, newly-grown hair is permanent; however, it’s normal to have some hair shedding a few weeks after the treatment. Most of your new growth occurs within 6-12 months of your FUE transplant.
