FUE Transplant Los Angeles

FUE vs FUSS – Los Angeles

No doubt today’s hair transplant techniques and methods have improved to new heights with the ability to recreate the natural density and the natural looking hairlines.

When the time comes for a patient to undergo a hair transplant procedure or having a hair restoration of their natural hairline restored prior to hair-loss, there are two widely used hair transplant methods currently being offered. These two methods are the FUSS and FUE. The way grafts are harvested with these methods differ in technique.

FUSS stands for (Follicular Unit Strip Surgery). The FUSS procedure is more of an outdated technique and more of an invasive procedure where a piece of the scalp skin is removed, then the donor region is stapled or sutured where recovery can take several weeks to months with more complications such as limited range of motion, neck tightness, numbness, hypertrophic scar, which the end result leaves the patients donor region with an unsightly linear scar, and in some cases, if a higher graft count is needed, an unnatural looking hair transplant would be the final result.

FUE stands for (Follicular Unit Extraction) and is the most advanced technology currently available in the field of hair transplant and hair restoration. The benefits of FUE is that the recovery is almost over night, there are NO scalpels, NO sutures and No staples and NO Linear Scars involved because there is no cutting of the patient’s scalp. FUE has the advantage of giving the practitioner the flexibility of obtaining any number of grafts necessary to bring the density per centimeter to its natural count, thus creating a more natural looking hair transplant and density. With the FUE, since there are no scalpels or cutting of the skin involved, FUE gives the flexibility of obtaining donor grafts from any part of the body, such as the chest, back, arms and legs for those patients who lack a sufficient scalp donor region.

In conclusion, the benefits of FUE over the FUSS are.

  • NO Scalpels, NO Staples, NO Sutures.
  • NO Linear Scars in the back of the head or temples.
  • Minimally invasive.
  • Natural looking hairlines.
  • Dense packing.
  • Flexibility in hairstyles.
  • Obtaining more grafts in a single session.
  • Faster recovery period.


How Are FUE Hair Transplants Performed?

FUE hair transplants are conducted by an experienced medical provider using a small device that removes individual follicular units manually from your scalp. Each follicular unit contains approximately one to four hairs. A tiny, circular incision is made around each unit to isolate and obtain a graft. Our LA FUE then removes the graft directly and prepares it for placement.
