FUE – The Next Generation of Hair Transplantation
If you’re currently exploring your hair restoration options, you may very well be considering a hair transplant. If you’re one of the millions who have heard horror stories of hair transplants gone wrong, or unsightly “hair plugs” we encourage you to do some more research. The hair transplant industry has been around for nearly 60 years, in that time specialist have fine tuned the art into a technique we now call the follicular unit extraction (FUE).
The Early Days of Hair Transplants
Believe it or not, the very first hair transplant was performed in 1952. At the time Dr. Norman Orentreich coined the term “donor dominance” to explain how a transplanted hair can continue to grow and thrive as it did prior to transplantation. Though the medical community did not accept Dr. Orentreich’s theory right away, his landmark study was finally published in 1959. It was at that time that doctors began offering hair transplants.
Throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s specialists transplanted large grafts of hair, also known as “hair plugs.” The unnatural look of these oversized hair grafts gave the hair transplantation industry a stigma for many years.
Hair Transplants Today
In the 1980’s and 1990’s hair transplant specialists began to push the envelope in an effort to deliver more natural looking results. Today, the follicular unit extraction is practiced worldwide. During an FUE, individual hair follicles are extracted from the donor areas of the scalp, typically from the back and sides. Each individual follicle is then carefully transplanted into the recipient area using microscopic incisions. The end result is a hair transplant that is virtually undetectable to the human eye.
