Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
FUE is the technique used most often by Dr. Thierry Jacquemin and our Surgical Technician Patricia Salgado, where he utilizes his custom-designed Fue system to optimize hair growth while minimizing scarring.
With FUE, patients are able to shave the head in the future without worrying about any linear donor site scar. The transplanted hairs are placed into recipient sites in the scalp (or beard or eyebrows) for optimal hair growth direction, pattern, and angulation. This is an essentially painless procedure, usually performed under oral sedation and local anesthesia but, if desired, twilight sedation is available.
With this modification on FUE, rather than shaving all the hairs in the donor area as with conventional FUE techniques, only the hairs that are to be harvested for transplanting are trimmed, leaving all the other surrounding hairs in the donor area their original length.
