What is FUE?

FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction and is a hair transplant technology that involves individual extraction and hair follicles placement. Here in Austin, TX, we use an advanced handpiece to harvest healthy hair follicles from the back of your scalp to transplant and restore balding or thinning areas or restore a receding hairline.

Your new hairline

A successful hair transplant requires artistry and an eye for balance to create a hairline that looks entirely natural. At Face Austin, our reputation as the premier hair restoration clinics in the Austin area has everything to do with the fact that we meticulously design your new hairline to achieve realistic and natural-looking results for a “never had surgery” look.

We will use photos of you when you were younger, any images that demonstrate the look you envision, and then design a new hairline. You will see how your new hair will look - no questions, no mystery, just results.

The benefits of FUE

A strip method of hair restoration could be the right approach for some patients, but this approach requires the surgical excision of a small area of your scalp, leaving a scar and requiring a more extensive recovery period. Some of the benefits of our advanced FUE hair transplant include:

  • No visible scarring
  • Quick recovery time (most patients are back to their daily routines within one to two days)
  • Effective, comprehensive results
  • Comfortable procedure with minimal pain
  • High graft survival rate, with 90 to 95% of the grafts effectively reintegrating with your scalp

Am I a candidate?

You may be a candidate for an FUE hair transplant if you:

  • Are experiencing mild to severe hair loss
  • Desire a more youthful-looking and fuller head of hair
  • Have sufficient donor hair on the back of your scalp
  • Prefer a shorter hairstyle and want to avoid any visible scarring
  • Are in generally good health
  • Have a realistic expectation regarding results

Your FUE procedure

A FUE hair transplant is an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthetic that typically takes in the range of four to six hours to complete. We begin with a comprehensive design to achieve natural-looking results. The procedure is performed in our comfortable, state-of-the-art clinic. You will be resting comfortably, watching a movie, reading a book, or taking a nap while we harvest the donor follicles from the back of your scalp and transplant them to the thinning or balding areas. Once complete, you are free to return home.

Your results

Within the first few weeks, you will need to be gentle with your scalp to allow the new follicles to integrate into your scalp. Within roughly two weeks, you will see the new hair begin to shed as it enters a new growth cycle – which is natural and expected. After about three months, you will see new hair growth begin, and you can expect full results within roughly 12 to 16 months after the transplant.

Hair transplant + PRP: A powerful combination

To maximize your FUE hair transplant results, we also offer PRP Hair Restoration and ACell + PRP treatments to stimulate your scalp and give your newly transplanted follicles a boost at the cellular level. When you combine these treatments with a transplant, you can achieve thicker, fuller, and quicker growth.
