Rooted in Confidence

What is FUE Hair Restoration?

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a modern hair restoration technique. The method allows for an even distribution of follicles and a more natural look with no linear scarring. Traditional strip methods (FUT) can leave long, noticeable scars on the scalp, and that can also cause more discomfort. Instead, with FUE, healthy grafts are selected when the patient's hair is shaved short.

FUE is an effective solution if you are feeling self-conscious about thinning hair or want to restore thickness to specific areas of your head. So if you’re worried pattern hair loss will knock your self-esteem, Dr. Grady Core at Core Plastic Surgery can help. Offering FUE with state-of-the-art NeoGraft or AI-assisted ARTAS iX, Dr. Core helps his patients in Birmingham, Alabama, and beyond to regain a natural-looking head of hair.

FUE Flourish

Your FUE Hair Restoration Consultation

Dr. Core will listen to your concerns during your personal consultation in Birmingham. At this juncture, please feel free to discuss the difficulties you have had with thinning hair and speak frankly about your desired goals. After you have spoken with him about the areas of your scalp that are causing the most trouble, Dr. Core will carefully examine the areas and identify where hair can be harvested from. After Dr. Core has assessed your hair density and approved you for FUE, he will schedule your procedure on a suitable future date.

Innovation Unleashed

Your FUE Hair Restoration Procedure

The follicular unit extraction procedure begins with the patient receiving topical anesthesia to minimize any discomfort. Dr. Core will then use the NeoGraft or ARTAS iX system to extract follicular units one by one from the donor area. In a typical hair restoration surgery, Dr. Core will harvest between 500 and 2,000 grafts, depending on the desired outcome. As Dr. Core begins your FUE procedure, the transplant area will be gently shaved to access the hair follicles effectively. Rest assured, a local anesthetic will be administered to ensure a comfortable experience throughout your procedure.

Using a micro punch tool, follicles will be carefully collected from an area of your scalp with abundant hair growth. In the target area for transplantation, tiny incisions will be delicately made, followed by the precise transfer of the collected follicles. Depending on your unique needs, the FUE procedure may be conducted in multiple sessions over a few days, ensuring optimal results. While some soreness is to be expected after the procedure, rest easy knowing it will diminish within a few days to a week, setting the stage for your transformation into a more confident and revitalized you.
