The FUEture is here in Miami: Hair transplantation without an incision scar
Jeffrey Epstein, M.D., FACS
Anthony Bared, M.D.
Dr. Jeffrey Epstein, a plastic surgeon specializing in the field of surgical hair restoration, has been recognized for the past almost 20 years for his aesthetics and cutting edge techniques. During this time he has performed 10,000 procedures for male and female pattern hair loss and also for eyebrow and beard restoration and repairing poorly performed prior work. FUE (follicular unit extraction) is now the most common technique for our patients, in particular men, because it leaves no linear donor site scar.
Before and after photos of FUE hair transplants:
In FUE, each graft is carefully removed from the back and/or sides of the head then planted into recipient sites made by Dr. Epstein 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. Since 2007, Dr. Epstein has developed FUE techniques that complement his recognized aesthetic skills to assure optimal outcomes. In addition, our Foundation hair assistants are likely are the most experienced in the world, averaging over nine years working with us.
The alternative technique to FUE, FUG (follicular unit grafting) or strip technique, is still a great choice for many patients, especially most women, and men who do not plan cutting their hair short or already have had a strip procedure and are seeking more coverage. Larger FUE procedures (800 or more grafts) usually require shaving the back and sides of the head, which is not necessary with FUG.
