Are you fed up with the cold looks from friends due to your uneven hair? Do you want to look younger with a fuller head without anyone noticing? Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a minimally invasive hair restoration technique that creates homogeneity without the scars of the past transplant techniques. Follicular units are obtained from the donor area and transferred to the recipient area using high precision instruments and magnifiers. The California team of skilled physicians offering hair transplant services in San Francisco and the Bay Area.
Who Qualifies for FUE?
Essentially, FUE hair transplant is meant for any patient who qualifies for hair restoration surgery. A patient may not qualify for the alternative scalp reduction surgery or strip harvesting hair restoration procedures but be a good candidate for FUE. What is required in FUE is patience, endurance and a strong physical stamina. On the other hand, San Francisco Â physicians possess the excellent hand-eye coordination and good hand-motor skills essential for hair transplant physicians.Â

FUE has numerous benefits over the other hair transplant options, including:

Â· Patients do not suffer sutures or bear permanent linear scars

Â· Hair growth angles are left intact
Â· The process gets rid of undesirable hairline grafts
Â· The best solution to repairing donor scars

Types of FUE
We carry out a preliminary inspection to determine the best FUE procedure out of two options. These are Manual FUE and Mega Sessions.
At Bay area hair transplant, we employ a sequential technique to achieve homogeneity in hair transplant San Francisco operations. Since heads have different shapes, contours and hair angles, we employ magnification and tactile sensation for a better view of the donor scalp. The procedure ensures the donor areas are still dense even after multiple sessions of follicle extraction.
Whenever the situation demands, large numbers of grafts are transplanted in a single session. This method is by far convenient than the manual FUE as large areas are covered within a short period. For the process to succeed, we use special implanting techniques that involve high magnification instruments. The mastery and good-organization of our surgical team is key to the success of Mega Session hair transplants.
The incisions are made in a way to give hair a growth direction while maintaining a substantial spacing and depth. Our surgeons are always keen to give the patient a natural-like look undistinguishable from the initial hair growth. The incisions may either be perpendicular or coronal. Initiations that are perpendicular to the direction in which the hair grows are also called lateral slits, while those parallel to the growth are sagittal slits.Â
