The process for hidden FUE is like that of a traditional FUE procedure. We prepare for surgery by cleansing the scalp and making surgical markings. Then, we extract donor hair from the back of the head shaving small strips of donor area. We then place grafts into areas of the scalp that are experiencing hair thinning and loss.
If you’re receiving the hidden donor technique, we’ll only shave patches of hair that we plan to use for obtaining grafts. Our team has performed this advanced hair restoration technique many times and will guide you through the process, explaining each step as it occurs.
Because we use a topical anesthetic to ensure a comfortable procedure, patients can enjoy a restful experience during FUE. After the harvesting portion, patients can relax and read, catch up on emails, or watch Netflix while we place grafts.
FUE hair restoration is a time-consuming process. Plan on spending the full day with us, typically starting around 7:30 a.m. and ending between 3 and 5 p.m. You can return home the same day, but you will need someone to drive you home from surgery.
