Follicular Unit Extraction

Follicular Unit Extraction

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a technique of hair restoration that involves, direct extraction of the follicular units from a patient’s donor area using a small instrument called a trephine. Healing is quick, scarring is virtually nonexistent, and discomfort in the donor area has been practically eliminated. This method was first described by Dr. William Rassman and shortly after its introduction became one of the standards in hair restoration.

In various surgical specialties, minimally invasive surgery has shortened recovery time and lessened the risk of complications in fields ranging from orthopedic joint surgery to open heart surgery. Now, minimally invasive surgery has arrived to hair transplantation. The technique has become a standard offering in the field, but only a few surgeons have mastered it as the technique takes years to perfect and a lot of practice.
