NOTICEABLE HAIR TRANSPLANTS ARE NEVER IN FASHION, SO WHY ARE THEY MAKING A COMEBACK?

In the old days (think 1980s), there was no mistaking who had a hair transplant. The telltale corn row, doll hair, pluggy-looking hair transplants of yesteryear were -- believe it or not -- once considered state-of-the-art. But that was well before the evolution of hair transplantation. Over the last 20 years, hair restoration techniques have evolved considerably. These techniques have become so refined and results so natural-looking that most people cannot tell if someone has even had a hair transplant.

FUE Instruments and Their Use

Improvements in instrument technology and technique have now made follicular unit extraction (FUE) a procedure competitive with strip harvesting for obtaining donor hair for transplantation.

Excision Of Bald Scalp Utilizing Tissue Expansion Or Extension

Although hair transplantation alone is by far the most common method of hair restoration utilized in modern times, excision of bald scalp after either tissue expansion or scalp extension can play a very useful and important role in hair restoration as well.

FUE: What is it?

FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction is a method of harvesting hair follicles from the donor area (the back and side of scalp where hairs won't fall out during the patient's lifetime).
