The major advantage of the FUE procedure, on the other hand, is that there is no visible scarring in the long run from this procedure. Patients who choose FUE do so despite the fact that it is more costly and despite the fact that it takes two days instead of one in most cases because they are able to avoid any type of scar. Most patients who select FUE choose to shave their head or wear their hair very short or simply wish to have the ability to so that in the future and so elect to have the FUE procedure instead of strip.
Contrary to what most doctors will suggest, there is no good or bad selection. It is more a matter of choice. Dr. Epstein enjoys both the FUE procedure and strip and believes in the results of both procedures to get an outstanding result for different types of patients.
