Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is one of the two primary techniques used by Dr. Marotta to obtain follicular units, which are naturally occurring and growing groups of one to four hairs. for a hair transplant. Through this process, individual follicular units are extracted directly from the patient’s donor area, one at a time.
The procured follicular units form the basic building blocks of a hair transplant, although the techniques themselves have become more sophisticated. Advanced FUE has enabled the creation of larger donor pool from a patient’s body, so that follicular units can be taken from the chest, legs, arms, back, beard and abdomen without limit.
One of the main advantages of Follicular Unit Extractions is that this procedure avoids the linear scar associated with traditional hair transplants. It is also known as a scarless hair transplant. It is particularly advantageous to patients that wish to wear their hair cropped short or less than a buzzer count of 4. It is also generally has a quicker recovery time and significantly lower discomfort than other kinds of hair transplant procedures. This makes FUE one of the most popular hair transplant techniques among our patients.
