Long hair FUE (True UFUE)
Restore hair clinics is proud to offer a very unique solution to a perpetually difficult scenario. Some of our clients have withheld undergoing hair restoration surgery due to the fear of having to trim their hair for the procedure and the issue with having short hair in the ensuing healing period.
With this scenario in mind, Dr. Reddy and his team have come up with a modification to the standard FUE procedure by obviating the need for trimming hair both in the donor and recipient areas.
Needless to say we have seen a significant increase in uptake of long hair FUE procedure by clients who desire to return to work in reasonable time.
We have managed to extract FUE grafts with long hair follicles by modifying our technique to such an extent that the quality of the grafts are almost comparable to the ones extracted with traditional FUE technique.
As our emphasis with any surgical procedures is to make sure the results are the best in the industry, we have thoroughly refined the protocols to factor in all the possible outcomes.
The only downside we have noticed is that by not shaving the donor, the time taken to extract follicles increases exponentially. In order to limit the time the grafts stay out of the body, we have limited the number of grafts to 500 grafts per session and as a result one might notice cost implications of choosing long hair FUE vs the traditional FUE. We do hope that with more repetitiveness, we shall be able to offer procedures with higher number of grafts.

"Just to let you know, what a transformation I've seen in only 4 weeks, can hardly believe it. Within days I felt a lot of short spiky hair coming through , and I've actually developed a new hairline. Still some way to go but am optimistic this is exactly what I was hoping for."Steve in UK
