Any serious analysis of the extraction techniques in hair transplant should consider two fundamental facts: one, the donor hair is a limited resource, and tow, all kinds of extraction involves scarring. In no case, can it be treated by extraction, "waxing" because the hair follicles obtained in this way are incomplete by not having basic structures (adipose tissue, etc.) for graft survival.
The F.U.E extraction is not a surgery.
F.U.E. is a surgical procedure to be performed under local anesthetic, an expert surgeon's hands and all preoperative laboratory studies required by law.
It will leave no scar
F.U.E. It produces thousands of punctiform scars. After a session this doesn’t seem to be a problem, but after multiple procedures the donor area has a moth-eaten appearance or a widespread low density.
F.U.E. is less invasive
F.U.E. It requires a circular diameter of 1 mm obtained by graft incision. Example. 2000 grafts x 1 mm = 2 meters cut. Clearly F.U.E. It is much more invasive procedure for the patient.
To preform the F.U.E. local anesthetic is required. Some clinics administered orally relaxing, but nowhere in the world hair transplantation is performed under general anesthesia.
The transplant success depends on the technic
The technique for removing the donor hair is just one component of hair transplantation. This perspective minimizes the need to create a natural design hairline artistic sense as well as the technical part of plant and / or distribute the grafts. Addressing transplantation with this myopic view is a mistake with severe consequences for the patient and the surgeon.
Multiple FUE procedures can produce a look "moth-eaten" in the donor area.
The donor area presents no visible scars.
