F.U.E. is short for “follicular unit extraction”. This is an advanced,minimally-invasive hair transplant method which allows for the harvesting of follicular units from the donor area in their naturally occurring groupings,usually made up of 1-4 hairs. The end result is a natural looking hairline with no linear scar and a quick recovery time.
At Pacific Hair Institute we use the NeoGraft system to assist in harvesting the follicular units. NeoGraft is an automated hair transplant system which dramatically improves the accuracy and speed over previously used manual extraction instruments. NeoGraft uses controlled pneumatic pressure and suction assist to slide out the graft smoothly, so there is no risk in damaging the grafts by pulling or twisting as seen in manual FUE transplants.
Density of Results
“By using a method of small grafts at the hairline and slightly larger grafts on the rest of the head, we are frequently able to achieve density, sufficient to appear as it was when you were young. Of course, it would not actually be the same density. Our goal is to get about 55-percent of its original density. This generally will appear to be the same as full density. In some cases two sessions of transplants are needed to achieve this. “ Dr. Elliott
