“FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction, or in other words, removing or extracting one individual hair follicle at a time,” said Dr. Scott Boden, Hair Transplantation surgeon.
Dr. Boden is a board certified hair restoration surgeon and says the biggest advantage of FUE is no scarring in the back where the follicle is removed.
“We remove the hair from that stable area, transplant it into areas where there’s hair loss and the hair is going to grow and stay forever,” Dr. Boden said.
“Every morning I wake up, looking forward to fixing my hair,” she said.
Dr. Boden says the biggest reason for hair loss or hair thinning is genetics. He does recommend laser therapy to promote healing for patients who undergo hair transplantation.
