Follicular Unit Grafting (FUG)

Follicular Unit Grafting (also referred to as FUG) abides by the principle that hair doesn’t grow individually, but grows naturally in clusters of up to 4 hairs. These clusters are also known as follicular units and are obtained through microscopic dissection of tissue that is harvested in a single strip.

For some, this is the best hair transplant as it is possible to identify and extract the hair units and transfer them to the balding scalp. Thousands of follicular unit grafts containing 1, 2, 3 or 4 hair grafts are taken and are transferred in groups.

The Hair Loss NYC surgical team can control angle, depth and density of hair incision, ensuring a natural result. FUG at Hair Loss NYC involves removing a thin strip of hair at the back and sides of the scalp. The groupings of hair are placed in the incisions with a fine pair of tweezers.

Our surgical technicians will place 1 hair grafts in the front hairline and 2 hair grafts directly behind. The 3 and 4 hair grafts are then placed throughout the mid scalp and forelock region for maximum density.

Your hair directly above the incision will cover the area, ensuring FUG is not notable. As mentioned previously, not everyone loses hair in the same area, which is why it is important to consider the best hair transplant for you.
