Having a Hair Transplant Does Not Mean Having a Visible Donor Site Scar

Close up photos of donor sites of patients who were treated with FUE and FUG procedures. The FUG technique involves making a fine line incision in the back of the head from which grafts are obtained – these linear incisions when performed using plastic surgery techniques by a surgeon like Dr. Epstein typically heal as a fine line less than 2 mm in width. Meanwhile, the FUE technique avoids altogether any linear incision, as the grafts are removed one by one using tiny punches. These photos show the range of results of the donor area using both the FUG and FUE techniques.


FUE versus FUG: Choices in hair transplant techniques

Dr. Jeffrey Epstein has, as a plastic surgeon specializing in the field of surgical hair restoration, been recognized for the past almost 20 years for his aesthetics and cutting edge techniques. During this time he has performed 10,000 hair procedures, mostly for male and female pattern hair loss but also for eyebrow and beard restoration and repairing poorly performed prior work, always being at the forefront in achieving natural appearing results.

FUE (follicular unit extraction) has now become the most chosen technique for our Foundation for Hair Restoration patients, in particular men, because of its significant advantage: no linear donor site scar, permitting our patients to cut their hair as short as desired, even shaving their head in most cases. The most common hair transplant technique in Europe and the Middle East for the past several years, FUE is now the procedure of choice for most men here in the US and worldwide.

In FUE, each graft is carefully removed one-by-one from the back and/or sides of the head then planted into recipient sites that determine the direction, distribution, and pattern of hair growth. Like with any other hair transplant technique, how aesthetically these recipient sites are made- and therefore the aesthetic skills of the surgeon- can either complement the technical steps and assure naturalness or can detract from the technical steps and leave a less than natural appearance, something that happened with any patient whose hair transplant is detectable. Since 2007, Dr. Epstein has developed FUE techniques that complement his recognized aesthetic skills to assure optimal outcomes for our patients. In addition, our Foundation hair assistants are likely are the most experienced in the world, averaging over nine years working with Dr. Epstein.

“I was looking into hair transplants but I felt that there was still a stigma about unnatural results and big, bumpy, ugly scars. Now, about a year after the transplant, I can tell you that it’s IMPOSSIBLE to tell I had surgery: the hairline is awesome and you can’t even see a scar. I am 100% satisfied and would recommend him over anyone.”

The alternative technique to FUE, FUG (follicular unit grafting) or the strip technique, is still a great choice for many patients, especially most women, and men who do not plan on ever cutting their hair short or already have had a strip procedure and are seeking to add coverage. Larger FUE procedures (800 or more grafts) usually require shaving the back and sides of the head, which is not necessary with FUG.

To find out which technique is better for each of our patients, Dr. Epstein and his associate Dr. Anthony Bared will meet in consultation to hear from the patient what are his/her goals and to discuss the benefits of FUE and FUG. These consultations are provided in our offices or online to accommodate our thousands of patients worldwide who choose the Foundation for Hair Restoration.

The photos in these galleries are all of real patients who underwent a procedure by Dr. Epstein. While no one can be guaranteed of having an undetectable scar, these photos are testament to the commitment to excellence that we have for our patients.
