Finishing up phase 3 of today’s FUE hair restoration procedure!
FUE, or Follicular Unit Extraction, is the gold standard hair restoration procedure, where follicles are harvested individually (as opposed to the archaic FUSS, or strip surgery). FUE has four distinct phases:
1️⃣- Harvesting: this is where the grafts are carefully and meticulously extracted and separated based on the number of hairs per follicle/graft.
2️⃣- Design: this is where the hairline design is reconstructed, and the areas of restoration are designated.
3️⃣- Incisions: in this phase, the incisions are made in the recipient area of the scalp that will be receiving the grafts harvested in phase 1. We follow the patients natural angles and directions to ensure the most natural looking results.
4️⃣- Implanting: the final phase, where the harvested grafts are inserted into the recipient site.
