FUE and Mega-FUE are two different concepts in the technology of hair transplants which nevertheless, in principle, are the same. You can find a brief summery about the technique here, and more information is available on our website.
FUE means “Follicular Unit Extraction”. With this method, single, small hair groups, called follicles or grafts, are extracted. These follicles are planted carefully at the places to be treated for sparse hair. The extraction of the single follicles is performed with extraction or hypodermic needles in the healthy, hirsute area. As a rule, the areas where the follicles are taken are shaved, depending on the quantity of follicles to be extracted.
In principle, Mega-FUE is merely a more extensive version (Mega) of the FUE method.With the Mega FUE method very large grafts are extracted from, for example, the back of the head. For larger bald spots a Mega-FUE procedure can make sense. To determine whether the Mega-FUE procedure is viable and necessary for you, including whether enough healthy hair exists to extract, please view the photos and read the discussion.
