We Specialize in Large FUE Transplant Cases – Up to 3000 Grafts in One Day
Are you worried about losing your hair? As difficult as it may be, it is a perfectly normal part of the natural aging process. According to this article in the National Institute of Health, the clinical onset of baldness in men and women occurs around the age of 30 to 40 years. Family history is one of the strongest indicators of male pattern baldness. Luckily, the specialists at My Hair Transplant MD can get the look you want the first time with our FUE hair transplant procedure!
Our follicular unit extraction hair transplant procedure isn’t limited by the size of the case. Limits are donor-dependent…for example, if you have low donor density, prior hair transplant donor scars, etc. We typically do 2000+ FUE grafts in one day. We use at least 2 surgery techs per FUE case (for surgeries over 1000 grafts). Our surgical teams average 15 year’s experience.
Our advanced technology combined with our proprietary surgical knowledge gives us the advantage, which produces the results patients trust us to deliver.

WHAT IS FUE?
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), can be thought of as a “one hair at a time” method. Using the FUE technique, hairs are extracted in their naturally occurring 1, 2, 3, and 4 hair follicular units from areas of the scalp that are resistant to balding. Then transplanted into tiny incisions in the balding areas. Read What to expect the Day Of and the Day after an FUE procedure.
Both FUE and FUG produce amazingly natural-looking results. Both techniques place hairs the way they would naturally grow. The big difference is the way in which the hairs are extracted. While FUG/FUT excises long, thin strips of the scalp, FUE makes a tiny circular punch around each follicular unit. While FUG involves a thin scar that is difficult to detect, even on close inspection, FUE leaves only tiny circular marks that are typically also undetectable. There are no sutures or bandages with FUE.
The FUE Hair Transplant procedure has some important advantages and considerations. We are proud to offer both techniques as well as this brief comparison of the two methods.
The FUG/FUT hair transplant procedure has some important advantages and disadvantages when compared to the other leading method, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). We are proud to offer both as well as this brief comparison of the two methods.
Advantages of FUE
- Scarring: The tiny circular marks where the donor hairs have been extracted are usually undetectable. This may be an important consideration for men who wear their hair very short, maybe a #1 guard or zero.
- Faster Recovery: Because FUE is less invasive and there are no sutures, recovery is quicker than the strip method.
- More Expensive: Because removing one hair at a time from the donor area is more time consuming and labor-intensive, this procedure is a more expensive alternative than FUG.
- Short Hair Requirement: Cutting your hair short or shaving the back of your head is needed to extract Natural Follicular Units from your donor area.
