With the use of mini- and micrografts (also known as follicular units) Dr. Dahiya restores a more youthful hairline that looks completely natural. This same technique can be used to add volume to thinning hair in women. In the field of hair transplantation, we distinguish between two techniques, FUT and FUE. The main difference between the two lies in the way the follicle units are extracted. In an FUT, the strip technique is used, by which a strip of the scalp with hairs on it is taken from the back of the head, with its hair follicles subsequently being extracted. Using FUE, individual follicular units are extracted directly from the scalp.Though there has been considerable debate regarding which is the best procedure, Dr. Dahiya feels that both are excellent options and which is better for a given patient is dependent on the individual’s hairline, age, and overall aesthetic goals of hair restoration. A consultation in person is the ideal way to determine which is the best option for you. For patients from outside the country or general Washington DC vicinity, a virtual consultation can be arranged. Hair restoration can be performed in our office and is generally very well tolerated.
