What is Long Hair FUE?
With standard FUE, the procedure requires the shaving of the back and side of the scalp. For men and women who need small procedures to fill in the hairline, temples, beard or eyebrows, Long Hair FUE is a great option.
With Long Hair FUE, it is less noticeable during the healing process that a hair transplant procedure has taken place.
How does Long Hair FUE work?
The doctor will shave small lines throughout the back of the scalp that will be covered by longer hair. The hair in back will look slightly thinner until the shaved hair grows back, but there is not a linear incision to heal or scalp that has to be fully shaved from the crown down the sides and back.
Will the FUE method give me the best results?
The implantation of the hair follicle is the same for both FUE and FUT (Strip) harvesting methods and both are reliable methods. The technical skill of the surgeon relates to how the hairs are removed from the donor area (harvested). The artistic skill of the surgeon relates to how the hairs are placed (implanted) in the recipient area. These two factors determine your final result.
What do I need to know about FUE transection?
A skilled doctor such as Jae Pak, M.D. will minimize transection to ensure the best results! The transection of a hair follicle happens when the end portion of a hair follicle is cut or damaged due to misalignment of the FUE device.
How do doctors get qualified in performing Long Hair FUE?
There is no certification for FUE harvesting. Few doctors have been trained in performing FUE because training is not generally available.
Who will be performing my Long Hair FUE surgery?
At Jae Pak MD Medical, your surgeon will be harvesting the FUE grafts and creating the sites for the grafts to be implanted. Experienced, well trained medical technicians will prepare the grafts under special microscopes and implant the grafts based on the incision sites Dr. Pak creates.
You should always ask your surgeon about their experience and who will be performing which aspects of your surgery.
