FUE refers to a technique where each graft is removed individually using a small biopsy type excision. Although tiny dots will result where the FUE grafts are removed, for most patients, these tiny dots are usually invisible, even at a very short hair length. This means you can typically wear your hair as short as a #1 blade, and not worry that there will be visible tell-tale signs. Other factors such as hair and skin color make a difference too. While there is no scarless procedure for donor hair removal, FUE scars are tiny enough that the small speckles are typically not seen, even with very short hair styles.
There are additional advantages to FUE. Although FUE involves thousands of tiny excisions, patients say they have minimal discomfort during the healing phase. If you have had prior hair transplants and there is insufficient laxity for further donor removal with the linear excision, FUE may allow you to add more grafts. You also have the option to fill in a scar left from a prior linear excision procedure with FUE to allow you to wear your hair short again.
The graft placement techniques remain the same regardless of the donor removal technique, and in the hands of Dr. Keene, skilled surgeon and President of Physician’s Hair Institute, you will achieve a cosmetic and natural appearance.
