No Shave FUE

Greetings,

Typically FUE has been performed by shaving the entire back and sides of the scalp as the hairs harvested via FUE need to be very short. Recently I have been performing no shave FUE or long hair FUE. This technique involves cutting short the hairs to be harvested from the donor region individually while leaving the hair around it long. This allows us to perform FUE without shaving the entire back and sides of the scalp and makes the entire process much less visually invasive. This process requires very specific expertise but for many people that want FUE but don’t want to shave their heads this is a great option. I recently posted a video of the process on my youtube channel which shows the entire process.

Long Hair FUE- The Latest and Greatest

Greetings,

In the past we needed to shave the back and sides of the scalp to perform FUE because the follicles can only be extracted as short hairs.

Noe we have a new technique called long hair FUE. With this technique we go through the donor region and individually cut short the follicles we will extract while leaving the hair around it ling. This allows the patient to keep their hair long for the procedure and creates no significant change to the patients visual appearance.

This technique is a but more expensive than short hair FUE but for those that don’t want to shave their head it can be the difference between doing the procedure and not doing it.

The photo below shows a long hair FUE patient of mine’s donor region one week post procedure.

All the best,

Long Hair FUE

Greetings,

For a long time the only way to perform FUE was to shave the entire back and sides of the scalp as the hair needs to be a few millimeters long in order to extract. That has now changed.

Now we can perform long hair FUE which allows the patient to keep their hair long and completely conceal any evidence that FUE was performed in the donor region.

The patient leaves their hair at least 1.5 inches long and we go through the donor hair individually and randomly cut short the follicles we plan to extract. This allows us to completely conceal the donor region. It also allows up to choose the follicles with the most hairs per follicle which gives the patient the best ultimate result.

Since I have had multiple strip harvest hair transplant procedures in the past, I wanted to have this technique performed on myself to better understand what it felt like, which would in turn give me greater insight into the process. I can wholeheartedly state that this process was so much easier than my previous strip harvest procedures. I had virtually no pain the next day and was back to work a day later.

The photo below shows my donor zone the day after over 2000 follicles were harvested via long hair FUE.

I believe that this process will revolutionize FUE and open it up to so many more people that were hesitant, like myself, because they did not want to shave their head for the procedure.

Here is a patient of mine who received just under 2000 grafts via FUT. He had 2 previous procedures with another physician which left him with less than desirable density.

FUE Hair Transplant in Norwood 6 Patient

Greetings,

Here is a patient of mine who had hair loss classified as norwood 6 on the norwood hair loss scale. This essentially means that most of the hair on top of his head had been lost secondary to genetic hair loss.

I performed a follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant using a 0.85mm punch tip. I personally extracted each and every follicle. Many other physicians delegate the extraction component of the procedure to technicians but I prefer to perform the extractions myself.

The patient is thrilled with his results and plans to return for another procedure to create even more cosmetic density.

FUE Grafts Into Scalp Scar Resulting from Break Dancing

Greetings,

Here is a very interesting case of  a patient who was a frequent break dancer in the day. His continued head spinning cause the hair at the top of his head to fall out in the exact spot where the scalp received repetitive trauma. Anything that causes repetitive trauma to the scalp can cause the hair in those places to fall out.

I harvested approximately 150 grafts via FUE from the back of the scalp and we transplanted these grafts into the area devoid of hair.

The results are show after 1 year. The patient is thrilled.

Bad Strip Scar

Greetings,

Here is a patient who came to me after having undergone 2 previous trip harvest procedures from another local physician. He decided he was done with the strip harvest procedure and wanted to have an FUE procedure. When I shaved the scalp to perform FUE his precious strip scars were clearly visible and also demonstrated how his previous physician had created “stacked scars” in certain locations instead of including the old strip scar in the new incision.

This is against the 10 commandments of hair transplant surgery.

In every instance of a patient having another strip harvest hair transplant procedure after having one prior, the previous scar should be removed.

If the previous scar is too wide or the scalp too tight FUE should be considered.

NEVER should a physician create a stacked scar, which in reality just creates  one huge scar.

This is a prime example of what not to do and is either laziness or ignorance on the part of the hair transplant surgeon who did this.

On this procedure the patient was primarily concerned with creating density in the frontal scalp, but after seeing these photos, the patient has decided in the future to have me place FUE grafts into these scars to help cover them.

Just another example of why it is imperative to do thorough research prior to choosing your hair transplant surgeon.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

Hair Transplant Results and Physician Testimonial

Greetings,

Here is a patient of mine I recently saw in a 1 year follow up. He happens to be a physician himself and wrote a testimonial that I have posted below describing his experience undergoing his hair transplant procedure.

I hope you enjoy reading.

All the best,

I was on the fence regarding hair transplant, and an now over one year after the procedure.  The changes are gradual, and only those who I told I had the procedure could tell I had it.  Interestingly, I’ve received other comments regarding my appearance, for example, asking if I’ve lost weight.  I haven’t lost weight, but could not be more pleased with my decision to undergo the hair transplant.
Dr. Dauer should be your first and last stop for hair transplantation.  Being a fellow MD, albeit in a different specialty, the candor and professionalism offered by Dr. Dauer was reassuring, as I had preconceived notions what would be best for me in that I believed FUE would be ideal.  Dr. Dauer patiently and thoroughly went over my options after his examination, and we decided on the strip harvest procedure.  He is an expert with both, and I could not be more pleased with the decision to go with this option and the results.  The process is gradual, and having a follow up with Dr. Dauer a bit over a year reminded me of the significant improvement in density, coverage and fullness when I viewed by pre-procedure photos and my scar is pretty much invisible.  In short, one of the better decisions vising Dr. Dauer and placing my trust in his care.  Long Beach, Physician
