Why Do Most Hair Transplant Patients Choose FUE?

July 28, 2021

Choose FUE (Follicular Unit Transplantation)

Why do most hair transplant patients choose FUE? Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a hair transplant technique that has many advantages. There are two methods that are used in the majority of hair restoration surgery, one is FUE and the other is Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). While both of these approaches are safe and effective, it is easy to see why many patients choose FUE. 

With FUT, an incision is made to remove a small strip of hair and skin from the scalp. This practice is sometimes referred to as “strip harvesting” for this reason. The incision is sutured shut after the strip of donor hair is removed. One of the disadvantages of FUE is that this technique can leave behind linear scarring on the back of the head. This can be difficult to conceal, especially when wearing the hair cut short.

More Patients Choose FUE Than Any Other Transplant Procedure

FUE is significantly less invasive and does not involve any suturing. Patients that undergo an FUE procedure will have minuscule, diffuse circular scars at the sites where the follicular grafts are harvested. Instead of removing a linear strip of grafts, the units are extracted one by one from the donor area in a pattern that is more natural in appearance. Within a few weeks of surgery, any scarring will be virtually undetectable.

Some might argue that it is easier to harvest better quality follicular grafts with a FUT procedure. However, this is a misconception. Our surgeon is highly skilled and has years of experience as well as access to some of the most state-of-the-art tools available. This ensures that the maximum number of follicular grafts are successfully transplanted using the FUE approach. 

Additional Advantages

Another advantage to FUE is that the level of discomfort is significantly less than with FUT. This is due to the lack of incisions and sutures required. Most patients report feeling completely normal one week after surgery. Because FUE is less invasive, less downtime is required for recovery. While we recommend resting in the initial days after surgery, you will be able to resume your normal activities within a few days. Some of our patients even feel comfortable enough to return to work the next day!

Additionally, FUE procedures can be performed in stages to gradually increase the thickness of hair over time. This is a great solution for you if you want to be discreet about your hair restoration treatments, as restoring the hair gradually will be less noticeable to others. Working in multiple sessions can also be a great solution for you if you have a tight budget. We pride ourselves on offering the best price in LA for FUE hair transplants.

Disadvantages to FUE Transplants

There are two main disadvantages to FUE, the first is that the hair at is that it can be more time-consuming than FUT because of the manner in which the grafts are extracted. This can sometimes result in a higher price tag, but not necessarily. Because our hair transplants are priced by the graft, the cost of your treatment will be determined by the severity of your hair loss and the size of the area that needs to be transplanted. So it is possible to get an FUE hair transplant at a reasonable price.
