Follicular Unit Extraction
Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, is one of the most innovative surgical hair restoration techniques available. This option makes it possible to minimize residual scarring from surgery, and often results in a quicker recovery after the procedure. As an alternative to full strip harvesting techniques, FUE can remove hair follicles from the donor sites in a way that creates much less prominent and barely noticeable scarring. Dr. Bernardino Arocha will then transfer these hair follicles to the areas of thinning hair to produce results that look very natural.
FUE can be advantageous for those who typically keep their hair at a very short length. This technique can also benefit individuals who experience tightness in the scalp, and for those who need a smaller number of hair transplants (for patients who have larger areas of thinning hair or baldness, strip harvest hair restoration techniques may be the better option). In addition, FUE can be helpful for patients considering corrective hair restoration who have a depleted amount of hair in the donor sites due to previous strip harvesting. Dr. Arocha can utilize the advanced ARTAS® Robotic System to produce the most precise and accurate FUE procedures possible.
Since FUE involves the extraction and transplantation of individual follicular units, this technique often yields extraordinarily natural-looking results. Healing time, downtime, and scarring from surgery can also be significantly minimized with FUE procedures. Dr. Arocha will meet with you during your complimentary consultation to discuss the best hair restoration options for your needs and determine if you are a candidate for FUE.
