Follicular Unit Extraction

Facing hair loss can be emotional. We often tie our sense of self to our hair, making thinning or balding that much more difficult to process. You aren’t alone, and you have options to get both your hair and self-confidence back. 

Hair restoration involves several techniques, depending on your goals and the recommendations of your hair surgeon. One such technique is follicular unit extraction (FUE), which results in long-lasting hair transplants that give you a fuller head of hair.

What Is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)?

A follicular unit extraction (FUE) uses healthy hair follicles you already have and transplants them into an area where you’re experiencing hair loss. 

Unlike follicular unit transplantation (FUT), which removes an entire strip or unit of hair from the back of your head, an FUE procedure harvests individual follicles. These healthy follicles, extracted from a donor site on your body, are implanted into balding or thinning areas to give you fuller hair and a more symmetrical hairline.

FUE treatments are very detailed and comprehensive, requiring the expertise and skills of hair restoration experts. Our hair transplant doctors at The Hair Transplant CenterNew Jersey perform FUE procedures using cutting-edge tools and techniques.

FUE Techniques

While these techniques may produce similar results, a hair surgeon can perform an FUE procedure in several different ways.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

An FUE procedure involves extracting individual hair follicles from a donor site, typically somewhere else on your head. The follicles are extracted using a microneedling tool that punches down around the hair follicles, allowing your hair transplant surgeon to remove them without damage before implanting them into the thinning or patchy area. 

FOX Test

A FOX test is used to determine the viability of your hair follicles. Your hair surgeon removes about 100 healthy follicles, checking to see if they can be easily removed without damage. If the test shows favorable results, you’ll be approved to move forward with your FUE.

Follicular Unit Separation Extraction (FUSE) Method

The FUSE method uses a similar microneedling tool used in a traditional FUE. However, the needle in a FUSE procedure doesn’t go as deep, which makes the possibility of extracting healthy, intact follicles greater. 

FU Isolation Method

The FU Isolation method removes one follicular unit at a time with a small punching tool that scores and grabs the follicles. Once the unit is extracted, it’s implanted into your hair loss site. 

Having PRP Therapy with FUE

You can combine platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy with your FUE procedure to enhance your hair restoration results. PRP therapy uses your blood cells to accelerate healing at the site of your hair loss, producing healthier, thicker hair over time.

The Benefits Of FUE Hair Restoration

FUE hair restoration has several advantages outside of producing natural-looking results.

FUE Versus FUT: What Is More Effective?

FUTs and FUEs are each a hair transplant procedure that uses grafts extracted from the donor area to fill in balding parts of the scalp. FUE transplants can be as successful as the traditional FUT method, with a 90% graft survivability rate. 

So, which one is better?

Every hair restoration is different, and you want to consider the possible side effects and limitations of each transplantation option. FUE is better for those who don’t want a linear scar in their donor area. FUE scars are small, round, and less visible. That said, both kinds of scarring can often be disguised by surrounding healthy hair.

Who Is a Candidate for FUE Hair Restoration?

Experiencing balding or thinning hair? You’re likely a good candidate for an FUE hair restoration procedure if you’re generally healthy. FUEs deliver natural-looking results and have faster recovery times than other hair restoration options.
