Education is the first step towards addressing any medical condition, even one as complicated and potentially vexing as hair loss. This is why Dr. Edmond Griffin and Dr. Ashley Curtis of The Griffin Center of Hair Restoration and Research take every opportunity to educate patients about all of their options in hair loss prevention and hair restoration treatments. One hair transplantation technique that has become increasingly popular in the last few years is follicular unit extraction (or FUE), a procedure where individual follicular units are removed, one at a time, from the donor area either manually or with the NeoGraft® device. As an alternative to the more traditional strip harvesting method, FUE can provide a number of advantages, but they are not necessarily the right choice for every patient.
In this video, Dr. Griffin explains the specific situations that make a particular patient an ideal candidate for follicular unit extraction, including the need for a comparatively small number of grafts, fine or thin hair in the donor area, and a preference for wearing hair extremely short that could potentially make a linear scar overly noticeable. Regardless of the harvesting method, the experienced hair transplantation surgeons at The Griffin Center carefully place and angle each graft individually, allowing them to consistently achieve exceptionally natural looking hair restoration results, however a look at this short and informative video may help you to determine if the FUE approach is right for you.
At The Griffin Center, we believe that the success in any form of hair restoration surgery is ultimately dependent on the skill and experience of the surgeon and staff performing the procedure. For nearly forty years, we have been helping patients from around the world to consistently achieve full and natural looking results.
