Choosing A FUE Hair Transplant Doctor

Reasons for choosing your FUE hair transplant Doctor

What are your reasons when choosing your FUE hair transplant Doctor? It´s a personal decision for many. Maybe it is their bed-side manner. For others the focus is totally on the result. Often it is their style of hairlines that draws a particular type of patient. There can be many valid reasons for choosing your FUE hair transplant Doctor. Surgical hair restoration techniques differ. For the Doctor it is important to have a complete understanding.

Innate Skills In Hair Restoration

The skills for a hair transplant. As well as many other cosmetic surgery procedures. Requires a blend of medical and surgical excellence and artistic flare. Surgical skills for the donor harvesting and hair placement. Artistic skills for the hairline design and achieving maximum hair coverage and density with the minimum of hair grafts. With both skill sets some can be learnt and refined and others have an innate natural ability. As a result, skills and ability can vary. With surgical hair restoration or any aesthetic treatment, there should be no compromise. Ensure your choice choices lead to positives changes. The result will affect your life.

Follicular Unit Extraction skills are very similar to my first medical vocation. My love in medicine and specialising in Ophthalmology. Dealing with the structure, functions, and diseases of the eye. Performing surgery on such a delicate organ as the eye requires an innate skill. These medical skills translated into surgical hair restoration. The surgical skills overlap between the two procedures.


Dr Fotis Gkaragkounis has been performing the follicular unit transplant techniques for over a decade. Expert in both the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) techniques. Including Body Hair FUE and Beard Reconstruction.

Hair graft angles and orientation, placement, hairline and temple design. The same skills apply for both the latest hair transplant techniques. The best hair restoration surgeons possess the skills needed to design the micro elements of the hairline. Understanding planning plays a crucial role. Aspects such as age and future hair loss are taken into consideration. The hair distribution over the thinning areas. This is where size of the site, angulation, orientation and spacing all come into play. These surgical and aesthetic skills ultimately determine how the hair will grow into outstanding, newly re-created head of hair.

Donor Hair Harvesting

The two hair transplant techniques to choose from in 2019. Hair transplanting differ in donor hair management. Follicular Unit Extraction is the newer of the two techniques. FUE Donor Hair Management is crucial for the safe removal of the hair follicles. Ensuring the donor area can maintain progressive hair restoration. As hair loss continues overtime. At the same time, limiting any obvious signs of negative changes, such as visible scarring.

Planning the donor harvesting is the first step. The Doctor deciding on the size of the safe FUE donor area. Mapping out the different zones over the head. The sides and back. The areas will vary in the follicular unit hair density and the actual number of hairs. the hair count. It is important for the Doctor to spread the harvesting around the safe zone. As a result no area is overharvested. This maintains an even looking hair density. Long-term this allows for advanced hair loss stages to be treated. Without showing any obvious changes to the donor area.

The Doctor will then punch around the individual follicular units. Working around the safe donor zone they have mapped out. Throughout this process the Doctor is adjusting their position. To encompass the changes in the scalp. The depth of the follicluar units and the angle or orientation of the hair. FUE is a blind extraction technique. Meaning the Doctor relies on feel and experience to not damage the hair follicle with the punch. As it is not possible to see the hair follicle below the skin surface.

Doctor Custom-Made Recipient Sites

The Doctor will have already designed the hairline for their patient. This will have been agreed prior to the hair transplant starting. The recipient sites dictate the placement of the follicular units. The distribution over the area of hair loss. Including the depth, the angle and exit orientation of the hair shaft from the skin.

Care is taken to avoid damage to existing hair follicles. The hair density depending on the required distribution and surrounding hairs. To assure there is adequate space between each graft. The fine blade, often sed was initially designed for use in eye surgery. Is the finest in the world. The slits allow grafts to be placed between growing hairs and transplanted hairs. They do this with less risk of damage to the adjacent hairs, thereby increasing hair density.

Choosing the right FUE Hair Transplant Doctor

As a patient there are many issues to consider when deciding on the correct hair restoration Doctor for you. A hair consultation assessment is a good start. Being able to initialise contact with an online consultation. This will allow the Doctor to assess your details and give an initial appraisal of your hair loss stage. With the potential treatments available if you wished to continue with hair restoration. With any hair transplant aspects such as safe donor hair management. Graft care and hair distribution are paramount. Therefore it is critical that prospective patients evaluate a surgeon’s proven expertise using the Follicular Unit Extraction technique.
