FUE Hair Transplant

4.7
  4.7 /5 (55 Reviews)

FUE Hair Transplant

Follicular Unit Extraction, commonly referred to as FUE, is a hair transplant technique favored by many of the world’s most cutting-edge surgeons. This advanced method makes the hair restoration process more efficient, with results that mimic the hair’s natural growth patterns. FUE removes donor hair one by one, or in very small clusters, before artfully transplanting them to areas affected by hair loss. The minimally-invasive nature of FUE translates to a lesser chance of scarring and infection. Hair transplant surgeons that specialize in FUE also claim that by using smaller sections of follicles, they are able to create a more attractive hairline.

Follicular Unit Extraction may be performed manually by a trained surgeon. Automated FUE systems, like NeoGraft and ARTAS, speed up the process by utilizing robotic software.

"Dr. Alpeter was thorough, caring, personable, and explained every detail of his excellent work. He easily surpassed my expectations. His support staff was beyond excellent as well. One assistant allowed me to wait in a room for my ride home after hours and periodically checked in on me to see how I was doing. She even checked my bandage outside the building while my ride was stuck in traffic. Overall, I can't say anything but great things about the Bosley staff that cared for me during the procedure. I've told other people that my hair restoration surgery was the best thing I've ever done and that's no exaggeration. My hair is quite full in the front now and I feel more confident as a result. At first I thought the price of the procedure was a little high, but now I would say it was a great deal. I would go back to Bosley for another procedure if I had to. Luckily, I don't need another one."

"I have had four procedures and Dr. Cary Feldman has been my physician. He is very professional and always makes me feel like i'm in good hands.The whole staff is very courteous and professional. My experience has been very satisfying and comforting at a time when I'm receiving a complex procedure. As a patient, this can be a very intimidating surgical process to go through. That is why your entire staff and physician deserve a lot of credit for making me feel at ease. Thank you so much!!"

"The physician who handled my procedure on March 7, 2016 did an outstanding job. The procedure was lengthy, but because I received 1,013 grafts, it took all day to complete this project. I know the results are going to be outstanding, so I did not mind it at all. The staff was professional and patient with me throughout the procedure and answered all my questions. "

"Dr. K and the Bosley staff in Columbus were extremely thorough and professional in all aspects of the procedure. I was very satisfied with the senior counselor and Dr. K upon my consultation. From the start, they were attentive to my goals. I was more than satisfied with the surgery teams dedication and hard work during my procedure as it lasted all day. As I looked in the mirror for the first time post procedure, although there was the expected inflammation, I could already see how my hairline, which had receded substantially in past years, had returned to where it had been 10 years earlier. Although I will have to wait months for it to grow, I am excited to see my hair return. Only mild pain and itching for the past two weeks and most of that has subsided now. I can't thank this group enough for their kindness, understanding and professionalism and would recommend Bosley of Columbus to anyone who is considering the FUE procedure. "

"The office staff was great. Very professional team. As part of the post-op care, Bosley staff at the Dallas location recommended to go back to the Bosley office for a hair wash. I did that. The chair was uncomfortable. On a scale from 1 to 10, the level of pain and discomfort that I experienced was a 10. The hair wash was more painful than the hair transplant."

"This was my second procedure. I went to NY for the FUE treatment (unavailable in MD office) but ended up doing another FUT after discussing pros and cons with the doctor. I would normally have done the FUT closer to home and not in the middle of a blizzard but the staff was able to switch gears from FUE to FUT and do the procedure quickly on the spot. I was happy to hear that the MD office will help by pulling my stitches next week so I do not have to drive back to NYC from Baltimore. "
