Dr. William Rassman Announces mini-FUE or mFUE: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant Breakthrough?Category: FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) , Hair Loss Blog , Hair Loss News , Hair Restoration Physicians , Hair Transplant Surgery , New Advances
Coalition hair restoration physician Dr. William Rassman of Los Angeles, California recently announced an exciting new breakthrough in follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplantation. This new technique allows the harvesting of the follicular units without shaving the donor area.
Unlike follicular unit transplantation (FUT) commonly known as “strip surgery”, which can be performed without shaving the entire donor area allowing for immediate concealment of the sutured wound, FUE has traditionally required patients to shave a large portion of the back of the head. This may result in an awkward and conspicuous appearance until the shaved hair grows back. With the New Hair Institute’s newly developed procedure, this is no longer a concern.
The New Hair Institute’s new procedure, known as mini-FUE (mFUE), utilizes a specialized instrument they created for all of their FUE procedures and have been using successfully for quite some time. However, due to the intricacy of the extraction process, it is currently limited to a maximum session size of only 300 grafts which takes approximately one hour to complete.
The harvested follicular unit grafts with long hairs attached can be seen in the short demo video below.
Mini-FUE is best suited to hair loss sufferers who are looking to:
- Advance the hairline,
- Fill in a hairline,
- Fill in areas where further hair loss progressed
- Touch-up as needed
