“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.

Dr. Scott Boden is the only Fellowship-trained, Board Certified Hair Transplant surgeon in the state of Connecticut. In addition to his work as a Cosmetic Surgeon at the Medical Aesthetics Center, his medical focus is on working with patients to meet their individual goals in restoring their hair and thus their more youthful appearance.
