What are the different aspects when choosing best hair transplant technique?

There are two aspects to hair transportation: harvesting grafts and placing units. Hair grafts are harvested from the donor area, which is usually the back of the head. There are two types of hair extraction: Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). With FUT the hair is obtained by surgically excising a strip of hair, creating a continuous line scar. With FUE the hair is obtained with a circular cutting instrument, creating discontinuous circular scars. There's better yield from FUT and there's extra risk for permanent damage from FUE. However, a skilled hair transplant doctor would be able to perform FUE as well as FUT. Dr. Meshkin, a hair transplant specialist based in Southern California, has 25 years of experience and uses the latest techniques to ensure the best quality hair transplant.
