Why Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Is the Gold Standard for Treating Hair Loss
FUE is a versatile, effective treatment for various hair loss, providing a long-lasting solution. With advanced technology and personalized treatment plans, FUE stands as the gold standard in hair restoration. Here’s why.

Hair loss ranges from mild thinning to complete baldness. It’s estimated that up to 80% of men and close to half of women experience some degree of hair loss during their lifetime, and the risk increases with age. 

Fortunately, hair loss isn’t inevitable, and there are effective treatments. 

At Meshkin Medical, led by Michael Meshkin, MD, and Alister Meshkin, MD, we specialize in hair restoration for men and women, and offer cutting-edge approaches to treating hair loss, including follicular unit extraction (FUE). 

If you’re dealing with hair loss, read on to learn more about this advancement in hair restoration. 

Minimally invasive and precise

FUE is a minimally invasive approach to addressing hair loss that involves extracting individual hair follicles from a donor area — usually the back or sides of the scalp — and transplanting them to areas experiencing hair loss. 

This technique requires no stitches and leaves no linear scars, making it a preferred choice for many patients. The precision of FUE ensures that the transplanted hair looks natural and blends seamlessly with existing hair.

Natural-looking results

FUE delivers natural-looking results. Because FUE lets us transplant individual hair follicles, we can meticulously place each graft, ensuring the direction, angle, and density of the hair match your natural growth pattern. 

This level of detail is crucial for achieving a result that is virtually indistinguishable from your natural hair. Our patients report feeling confident and secure with their results.

Minimal scarring and faster recovery

Unlike older hair transplant approaches that can leave noticeable linear scars, FUE leaves only tiny, dot-like scars that are barely visible to the naked eye. This minimal scarring is particularly ideal for those who prefer to wear their hair short.

Additionally, the recovery time for FUE is relatively quick. Most patients can plan on returning to their regular activities within a few days.

Versatility and suitability

FUE is a versatile procedure suitable for various stages and types of hair loss. Whether you’re experiencing early signs of thinning or more advanced hair loss, we can tailor FUE to meet your specific needs. 

It’s also effective for both men and women, providing a solution for anyone looking to restore their hair. We can also use FUE to transplant hair to other areas of your body, such as your eyebrows or beard, offering even more versatility.

Long-lasting and effective

The results of FUE are long-lasting. Once the transplanted hair follicles have taken root and started to grow, they continue to do so for a lifetime. This makes FUE not only an effective treatment but also a worthwhile investment in your appearance and self-confidence.

Advanced technology and expertise

The modern FUE procedures that we use incorporate advanced technology and equipment, enhancing the precision and success of the treatment. We use specialized tools to extract and implant hair follicles with minimal trauma to the scalp. 

Personalized treatment plans

Each patient’s hair loss situation is unique, and FUE offers the flexibility to create personalized treatment plans. During your consultation, we assess your hair loss pattern, discuss your goals, and design a customized plan that addresses your specific needs.
