FUE Hair Transplant – Houston, TX
Follicular Unit Extraction, also known as FUE Hair Transplantation involves the individual extraction of follicular units from the sides and back of the scalp. It is a very labor intensive procedure that allows the patient to keep their donor hair very short with no linear scar after the hair transplant procedure.
In traditional follicular unit hair transplantation (FUT) there is always a small linear scar where the hair is removed that is covered by the surrounding hair. FUE offers individual follicle extraction so there is no tissue removal.
Benefits of FUE Hair Transplants:
- Donor area virtually scarless because each follicular unit is individually extracted
- Allow for very short hairstyles unlike FUT, where if the patient later shaved their head or were to crop it very short a linear scar may be visible.
