Hair Transplant Surgery in Alaska
FUE Hair Transplant – Anchorage, Alaska
Follicular Unit Extraction, also known as FUE Hair Transplantation involves the individual extraction of follicular units from the sides and back of the scalp. It is a very labor intensive procedure that allows the patient to keep their donor hair very short with no linear scar after the hair transplant procedure. In traditional follicular unit hair transplantation (FUT) there is always a small linear scar where the hair is removed that is covered by the surrounding hair. If the patient later shaved their head or crop it very short the linear scar may be visible. This is not the case with FUE’s since every follicular unit is individually extracted leaving the donor area virtually scarless.
Dr. McGrath is the first Diplomate of The American Board of Hair Restoration Surgeons in Texas to incorporate FUE hair transplantation with the Neograft Automated Hair Transplant System. In Dr. McGrath’s experienced hands this device provides him with an automated method to remove the follicular units allowing him to perform larger FUE hair transplant procedures in less time.
Because the follicular unit extraction allows for a shallower incision the procedure is often more comfortable and recovery is quicker than traditional hair transplant methods.
FUE Hair Transplant is not for everyone. To be performed properly the patient may need more procedures than traditional strip FUT and a larger donor needs to be shaved which may not be cosmetically desirable for many patients. During your consultation we will present all options and recommend the best approach for your particular situation.
Many of Dr. McGrath's patient come from Anchorage, Fairbanks and other Alaska Cities.
