Benefits of the FUE Method
Introduced in 2002, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) has quickly become the preferred method for hair transplantation because of its important advantages for the patient:
- NO stitches
- NO linear scarring
- NO cutting
- Little to no downtime post treatment
What to Expect
Dr. Goldfarb will use a tiny, precision instrument to make a circular incision around a chosen donor hair follicle. This small graft is excised from the scalp and placed in the recipient area, following the growth pattern of the patient’s natural hair.
Unlike traditional harvesting methods, FUE leaves NO linear scar in the donor area and patients recover quickly, with most reporting that the donor area shows little evidence of the graft procedure.
Choosing the right physician
Hair restoration using the FUE method can be viewed as an art form and choosing an experienced surgeon can have an affect on your overall results. Dr. Goldfarb is a nationally and internationally recognized pioneer in the field of cosmetic surgery, serving as faculty and member of many prestigious organizations and professional academies.
Dr. Goldfarb not only performs a wide range of cosmetic procedures, but trains physicians on many of these procedures as a leader in the field.
