Tuesday, January 23, 2018

FUE (Follicular Unit Excision) formerly known as follicular unit extraction is a donor extraction technique used in today's gold standard hair transplant procedure called follicular unit hair transplantation or FUT.

Thursday, August 10, 2017

Hair transplant patients have to put a lot of trust in their surgeon who is ultimately working on their scalp all day to deliver what they promised - a certain number of hair follicles (called grafts) that is optimal in providing a full and dense looking head of hair.

Friday, May 19, 2017

But for older men or for those with signs with mild recession and/or a family history of minimal baldness, performing hair transplant surgery on a patient who isn't taking non-surgical hair loss medication like Propecia (finasteride) and/or Rogaine (minoxidil) may be acceptable and rather successful.
