What is FUE Hair Transplant ?
A Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, hair transplant is a harvesting method of hair transplant surgery. Many consider FUE a minimally invasive method because a small “punch” is used to harvest single hair grafts one at a time. The result is hundreds or thousands of round “holes” where the donor hair follicles are taken.
FUE has been popular since 2002 when the technique was introduced to the world by Dr. William Rassman, a Los Angeles hair restoration surgeon. The pain and recovery of FUE harvesting is less than the traditional strip surgery.
Doctors use a tool to help the extraction process. There are many handheld devices including Neograft, Smartgraft, SAFE system, ARTAS, Ugraft, WAW FUE, FUE2 crown, manual punch, and crown punch, among others. When using these devices, the doctor manually harvests each graft of hair follicles. Neograft and Smartgraft devices use suction to remove the grafts from the scalp. SAFE, WAW, and Ugraft use a rotational or vibratory motion to remove the grafts. ARTAS uses a combination of methods using a robot. The speed of harvesting is dependent on the surgeon, not the machine.
The end result of the FUE harvesting method is single hair grafts taken one at a time. There is no single tool considered the best, according to Dr. Jae Pak, a Los Angeles hair restoration surgeon.
Tools don’t make the surgery any better but it may make the doctor’s job a little easier. Just like a better oven will not make a meal taste any better. You still need a good cook (or a good doctor).
