FUE - follicular unit extraction information and locations in Mexico

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is the most popular and effective type of hair transplant. The procedure consists of taking individual hair follicles and transplanting them to the site that is missing hair.
The FUE procedure is done using local anesthesia. The hair transplant specialist will look for follicle units growing with 1 to 4 hairs at the back or side of the scalp. Then, the area will be shaved to allow the correct extraction and implantation of those follicle units. Using a special punch needle the follicles are individually handpicked based on how strongly are growing. Once the follicles are extracted and prepared, the specialist will make a tiny incision on the area and insert the follicle.
After the procedure, you will notice that some hairs may fall out, but this is normal. The results can be visible after 3 to 4 months.
