What Does the Procedure Look Like?
Unlike a traditional grafting procedure, FUE allows individual harvesting of hair follicles. Generally, this procedure can be completed within one to two days, depending on the size of the area being treated and the amount of time spent harvesting and placing follicles. During an FUE procedure, a small surgical instrument makes circular incisions around the hair follicle, which is then extracted. The wounds tend to be small – approximately 1 mm around – and heal within a few days.

This video showcases the actual process of Follicular Unit Extraction at Samson Hair Restoration. You will notice there is NO wasted effort. The FUEs are extracted at high efficiency with no wasted motion. With a less skilled practice, there may be multiple extraction efforts and the grafts will not come out as perfectly as they do here in this video. The grafts may come out without follicles on them or the follicles may be transected and damaged.
It is very important that when you choose your practice, they know what they are doing and that they are not “practicing” on your grafts. Hair transplants are a matter of supply and demand. If they deplete your supply then you will not have enough grafts to meet your demand!
