Advantages Of FUE Hair Transplant

  • No linear scar
  • Quicker recovery; less down time post surgery
  • Decreased pain in donor area
  • Extends the donor area field
  • Useful for patients who have a tendency to scar
  • Ideal for scar revision case or repairing scars that can’t be excised
  • Useful for harvesting body hair and beard hair
  • Good option for younger patients who need a small number of grafts in the hairline and corners
  • Good option for patients who only need hair restoration in the frontal third of their head

Disadvantages Of FUE

  • Smaller donor hair yield than single strip method and more expensive
  • Donor distortion from original FUE procedure may make additional FUE procedures difficult
  • Due to increased transection rates of follicular units and harvest grafts not having much protective fatty tissue, poor growth and decreased graft survival rates may occur.
  • Grafts harvested beyond the permanent hair zone may be lost in the future
  • Possible spotty scarring in the donor area with larger cases
  • Some procedures can take 2 or more successive days.
  • Buried grafts more common
  • The excision of grafts is time conssuming which may shift the focus away from the overall hair transplant design to managing the excision of donor hair.
  • The donor zone must be completely shaved short.
  • Follicular Unit Excision cases are performed at Ziering Medical on a case-by-case and select basis.
