I just want to re-enforce some issues with FUE that are as important as any to focus on.
When getting an FUE transplant the result of recipient implantation is only a small part of the story.
1: If performed poorly the donor area can be decimated. The reason for this is that we have seen some instances where areas of a few follicles around each of the thousands of extractions are destroyed. This is called the devils halo.
2: FUE maybe far more limited in the number of Follicular units that can be extracted compared with strip. Most surgeons believe that only 28% to 30% can be removed safely and that all in all only about 4000 can be removed. This is not enough for a type V or Type VI.
3: FUE may include only scalp hair but unlike strip it may include hair from other parts of the body and if this is needed then they should be not bagged into the same overall category.
I would look at dr. Arvinds site as well as woods and bazinger’s sites then compare these with that of hasson and wong.
What stage of hairloss are you and what stage are you heading for??
Good luck but remain open to sceptisism!!!
