FUE Hair Transplant
One of the newest and most talked about methods of hair transplantation is a procedure known as follicular unit extraction and transplantation, commonly referred to as FUE transplantation.
The FUE transplantation procedure in our Edison, New Jersey office involves a different approach to extraction that pinpoints individual follicular grafts from the donor area as opposed to more traditional linear strip extraction. Each follicular unit hair graft, or compact bundle of 1 to 4 hair follicles, replete with oil glands, muscle and connecting tissue is removed individually and transplanted to the affected hair loss area.
This is an excellent procedure for selected patients. The FUE transplant procedure does not result in a linear scar which maybe a serious consideration for those who wear their hair short and wish to avoid a linear excision. Patients with very tight scalps or that have existing donor scarring that cannot be excised may also be good candidates.
Drs. Heller and Miller personally supervise the extraction of each graft to assure that they can achieve maximum hair graft survival and growth.
