Hair Restoration Using FUE Technique

Hair Transplants

Dr. Epstein Talks About FUE

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

FUE is the technique used most often by Dr. Epstein, where he utilizes his custom-designed E-Fue system as well as the WAW system from Europe and the Trivellini system from South America to optimize hair growth while minimizing scarring. These advanced FUE systems utilize an oscillating movement with “hybrid” punches that significantly reduce hair transection from conventional FUE systems, allowing the use of smaller punches that still produce intact beautiful grafts.

With FUE, the patient is able to shave his/her head in the future without worrying about any linear donor site scar. The transplanted hairs are placed into aesthetically designed recipient sites in the scalp (or beard or eyebrows) made by Dr. Epstein to assure optimal hair growth direction, pattern, and angulation.  This is the artistic part of the procedure, and it is the design of natural appearing hairlines for which Dr. Epstein is recognized.

FUE is an essentially painless procedure, usually performed under oral sedation and local anesthesia but, if desired, twilight sedation is available.

Reparative Procedures

Some patients seek Dr. Epstein for revision work to correct a prior hair transplant that left scarring or an unnatural appearance. Most commonly this work involves the technique of FUE removal with re-transplanting of unaesthetic transplanted hairs, along with additional hair grafting, usually by the FUE technique. In cases where there is a low supply of scalp donor hairs due to scarring and/or over-harvesting, hairs from the beard or other body areas can be utilized. In cases of extensive scarring, Dr. Epstein may opt to employ other techniques such as hairline advancement with partial or complete hairline excision, and endoscopic ridge reduction.

No-shave FUE

With this refined modification of FUE, only the donor hairs are trimmed leaving all the other hairs in the donor area their full length. This allows our patients to be fully presentable the very next day without any signs of having had a procedure.

Body to Scalp

Dr. Epstein is one of a handful of surgeons who routinely harvest hairs from the chest, back, and primarily the beard for use on the scalp. Once transplanted, these hairs will then grow similar to scalp hairs in most cases. Regrowth rates tend to be somewhat lower with chest and back hairs, but not usually so with beard hairs, and the use of specially designed FUE devices can help optimize regrowth. Because of the sensitivity, most cases of chest and back hair extraction are performed under twilight sedation.

Scalp to Body

When more hair is desired in other parts of the face or body, such as the beard, eyebrows, chest, even pubic region, hair can be transplanted from the scalp into these areas. There is likely no doctor who has performed more of these face and body hair transplant procedures worldwide.
