FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)
Follicular Unit Extraction generally offers a quicker patient recovery time and significantly lower post-operative discomfort than follicular unit transplantation.
Additionally, FUE transplants provide an alternative to FUT when the scalp may be too tight for a strip excision or for patients who prefer to wear shorter hairstyles.
Follicular Unit Extraction is the most popular procedure here at Best Hair Transplant Los Angeles, andwe’re experts in providing quality LA FUE procedures at affordable prices.
FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant)
Follicular Unit Transplantation is a process where a surgeon uses a strip of tissue, typically from the back of the scalp, to restore healthy hair follicles where needed.
FUT transplants are usually used for hair restoration in advanced hair loss cases, as they produce the best results for fuller hair. They’re also a great option to complement a previous FUE procedure offering additional coverage.
At Best Hair Transplant Los Angeles, our LA FUT surgeon can help you regain your confidence.
Low-Level Laser Hair Restoration (LLLT)
The Xtrallux Extreme RX 352 laser therapy cap is an FDA-cleared hair restoration device clinically proven to regrow thinning hair.
It may help prevent further progression of hair loss due to male & female pattern balding. Xtrallux 352 utilizes safe LLLT to stimulate, energize, and renew cells for thicker, healthier hair.
At Best Hair Transplant Los Angeles, we feel that LLLT is a great option both for hair transplant patients and those looking. for less costly secondary hair restoration option.
Beard & Mustache Facial Hair Transplants
A facial hair transplant extracts healthy hair follicles from a donor area on your body and implants them into patchy or balding areas on the face.
This area will not suffer from increased balding. Both mustaches & beards can receive facial hair transplants to improve shape & thickness.
At Best Hair Transplant Los Angeles, we’ve performed thousands of LA beard transplant and LA mustache transplant procedures. We can help you achieve the facial hair fullness you’re looking for.

Our FUE hair transplant procedure in Los Angeles, CA, is designed to offer several benefits.
Faster Recovery Time
You have plenty of responsibilities to worry about. We understand that patients don’t want to deal with long, tedious recovery times after hair transplants.
Our state-of-the-art hair transplant clinic provides quicker recovery times by performing FUE hair transplants. This procedure is less invasive and takes less time to recover from than some other hair transplants.

No Visible Scars
FUE hair transplants are unique in that they do not produce visible scars after the procedure. We harvest your hair follicles from the back of your head, and the rest of your hair covers the incision spots.
This is a big deal for patients who are worried about post-operative scarring and aesthetics. By getting FUE at our hair transplant clinic, you can trust that your scalp will remain scar-free.
How FUE Hair Transplants Work
FUE hair transplants are some of the best hair transplants performed in modern times. They require precision and skill, and our surgeons specialize in those important qualities.
Should you be genetically susceptible to hair loss, DHT can bind to receptors in your hair follicles and cause them to shrink. Eventually, those follicles will weaken and die. To perform an FUE hair transplant, our surgeons must extract your hair follicles from a donor area on your head. This is typically near the back of your head, where hair growth is the healthiest and most abundant.
Your hair follicles naturally occur in groups of one to four follicles across your scalp. During this procedure, one of our highly qualified surgeons will remove these natural groups of hair follicles.
Once your hair follicles have been removed, our surgeons will transplant them to areas where you experience balding and thinning hair.
These healthy follicles stimulate hair growth over time as your scalp adjusts to the transplant. Our hair restoration clinic has received many glowing reviews from FUE transplant patients who have healthy locks again!
Who Should Get a FUE Hair Transplant?
There are many factors that we will consider during your hair transplant consultation. You may be better suited for FUE hair transplants over FUT procedures if:
You Want an Efficient Recovery
Convenience and efficient recovery are two of the biggest factors in choosing FUE transplants. Our patients love this option because it doesn’t take much time away from their busy schedules and daily lives.
You Don’t Qualify for a FUT Procedure
If your scalp is abnormally tight and unsuitable for a FUT procedure, FUE transplants are the way to go. Some patients need FUE procedures because our surgeons would not be able to get enough tissue from their scalps using the “strip method.”
You Want an Outpatient Experience
When it comes to saving time and hassle, the FUE hair transplant procedure wins the race. This is an outpatient procedure that does not require any general anesthesia.
We use a local anesthetic to numb the areas of extraction on your scalp. However, you remain awake and comfortable the entire time. No need to arrange a ride after the procedure; you can drive yourself home if you want!
You Want a Comfortable Procedure
FUE hair transplants are considered one of the most comfortable procedures for hair restoration. Our hair restoration clinic emphasizes patient comfort and satisfaction above all.
It’s understandable to be cautious about your health and well-being. When you come to Best Hair Transplant, you get a premium, comfortable experience.

Hair Transplant FAQs
Which Hair Trasplant is Better, FUE or FUT?
There is not necessarily one answer to this as these procedures are helpful for different types of patients with different degrees of hair loss. Typically, many patients begin with the FUE hair transplant procedure, as this operation is less invasive and does not leave a linear scar the way FUT does.
However, FUT or Follicular Unit Transplants definitely have their place and help many patients achieve their hair restoration goals. Some patients looking to save money and choose a more affordable hair transplant option may select the FUT transplant, as the procedure takes less time to perform. Other patients may benefit from both FUE and FUT procedures performed at different times in order to achieve the best results.
Ultimately, this is a question best answered by your surgeon during your hair transplant consultation. However, if you’d like a better idea bout the comparisons between FUE & FUT, you can read this article to educate yourself further before scheduling your hair restoration consultation. If you’re looking for an LA hair surgeon who can provide the best hair transplant Los Angeles has to offer, please reach out to Best Hair Transplant in Redondo Beach for a free consultation.
Is a FUE Hair Transplant Permanent?
Yes, a FUE hair transplant is a permanent. The grafts that are transplanted will continue to grow for the rest of your life. However, as you age, your hair will naturally thin and change color, so the results may not be as dramatic as when you are younger. But the hair follicles that have been transplanted will still continue to grow.
FUE is a popular and minimally-invasive hair transplant procedure that involves extracting individual hair follicles from the donor area and transplanting them into the recipient area. This technique is used to restore hair loss due to male pattern baldness, traction alopecia, or other causes of baldness.
Call us today for a consultation and find the right treatment for your hair loss!
Will FUE Leave Scars After a Hair Transplant?
The biggest advantage of FUE procedures is that they minimize the potential for scarring. This is because the hair follicles are removed one at a time, rather than as a strip like in the Follicular Unit Transplant procedure. As a result, there is no linear incision and minimal tissue damage. Incisions made during the FUE procedure are small and usually less than 1mm in size. The result is little to no scarring.
However, some people may experience scarring due to the FUE procedure if they choose an unqualified doctor or fail to follow their surgeon’s directions. Our Los Angeles FUE clinic provide the best hair transplant Los Angeles hair restoration results, all at a price you can afford.
To achieve the best results, follow these tips and learn more about if FUE hair transplants leave scars by reading this article on the potential for FUE scarring after your hair restoration procedure.
Does Keeping Your Head Shaved Prevent Balding?
Does keeping your head shaved prevent balding? Very simply, no, although it’s a very prevalent myth. Shaving your head can’t increase the rate of hair growth, or prevent balding.
Hair density describes how closely the strands of hair are packed together. Decreased density gives the appearance of thinning hair, and this is what many hairloss sufferers experience.
As hair grows longer, the ends of the hair tend to lighten from exposure to sunlight. When hair is first growing it may appear darker, and the ends tend to stick up. This can give the illusion of higher density when the hair is shorter.
The reality is that cutting the hair has no effect on the follicles that are underneath the scalp. Remember, balding is primarily a genetic issue. Shaving your head will have no effect on this. For more information on this question, read our full blog about keeping your head shaved to prevent balding.
Do You Need To Take Minoxidil After A Hair Transplant?
There is mixed evidence on this subject. Some doctors believe that you should continue to use minoxidil after a hair transplant in order to improve the results, while other doctors believe that it is not necessary. More research is needed in order to make a definitive statement.
Some of the possible benefits of using minoxidil after a hair transplant include increased hair growth and decreased hair loss.
It is generally recommended that you speak with your doctor about whether or not it is right for you. Minoxidil can help to promote hair growth and may help to improve the overall results of your hair transplant.

When Will FUE Hair Grow After Your Hair Transplant?
There isn’t a straightforward answer to provide you if you’re considering an FUE transplant and are asking when will FUE hair grow following a hair transplant. After all, every patient is unique, has a unique body and a unique history of hair loss, and will respond differently. However, there are established stages of the hair transplant procedure that could provide insight into the average patient’s FUE hair growth cycle.
Before continuing, it is a good idea to review the various FUE hair transplant procedure-related considerations. You may find all the information you require below, though, if all you’re interested in are the FUE hair growth components and expectations based on the day-to-day, week-to-week, and month-to-month advancement.
When will FUE hair grow is best estimated using the four growth phases which take place during 12-18 months following your procedure. These phases include Initial Shedding, Transition, Visible Growth, and Maturity.
1) Initial Shedding: Some of the transplanted hair may follicles shed in the first two weeks following the transplant. This is a typical occurrence during the hair growth cycle and is not cause for alarm.
2) Transition: The hair will start to move from a resting phase to an active growth phase over the next months. The transplanted hair follicles start to grow new hair at this point.
3) Visible Growth: New hair starts to show after three to six months. Hair will typically grow at a rate of about 1/4 inch each month. Hair may look more natural between the next 6-12 months, at which point you can start shaping and styling it.
4) Maturity: The transplanted hair should be fully developed and the final outcome of the treatment will be visible after 12 -18 months. The hair should have grown to its full length and thickness by this time.

How Soon Can You Use Hair Clippers After Surgery?
If you like to wear your hair short and you’re considering a hair transplant, you might be wondering how soon after surgery can you use clippers after hair transplant surgery.
When it comes to when you can use clippers after hair transplant surgery, we recommend that you avoid clippers such as buzz cutters for the first year after your surgery. You can resume haircuts one month after surgery.
Using clippers after a transplant, especially too soon after a transplant can damage the newly transplanted grafts, or put them at risk of infection. Shaving the donor area too soon afterward can impact how the skin of the scalp heals.
For more information on cutting your hair short after your procedure, read the full article about using clippers after your hair transplant surgery.
Can FUE Hair Transplants Fail?
Any surgical procedure can fail or go awry for a variety of reasons. That’s why it’s so important that you choose the best hair transplant surgeon possible AND that you follow pre-op and post-procedure instructions your physician provides.
It is especially important that you take great care of your scalp and rest accordingly in the weeks after your transplant. Your hair is in a vulnerable state and you can cause damage to your hair during this period of time.
Finally, even with a qualified surgeon and following all the requirements, it is still possible for a patient’s body to reject a transplant or to have complications. After all, everyone’s body is different. However, complications like this are extremely rare and not typical of our patients.
For more information relating to can FUE hair transplants fail, we recommend referencing the related article we’ve linked to so you can further educate yourself and be ready to ask additional questions during your consultation. It’s extremely important you choose a qualified FUE hair clinic in LA who can truly provide the best hair transplant Los Angeles has to offer.
