The FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplant is a minimally invasive procedure, in which the graft from the back of the head (donor area) is harvested individually and placed in the thinning or balding areas on the top of the head.
Dr. Soltero, MD, FACS, uses the FUE method of hair restoration. FUE is minimally invasive solution, which can treat male pattern baldness and female baldness in almost half the time of any other hair restoration procedure. The FUE method offers the least invasive technique for hair transplantation with the least number of complications. The FUE is safe, comfortable, effective and affordable – with minimal downtime and no linear scarring.
- Adequate hair counts in the donor site
- Realistic expectations of what the results will be
Note: One’s individual hair characteristics such as color, curl and coarseness can affect the apparent density of the transplanted hair. Dr. Soltero, MD, FACS will discuss these characteristics during the initial consultation.

Will a FUE Hair Transplant Work for You?
The number of grafts necessary to produce the results you desire, density of donor hair, hair color, skin color, hair texture and potential for future hair loss are some of the factors that determine candidacy for the procedure.
How Does It Work?
Step 1: Donor Hair Removal
The FUE procedure begins with hair being removed from the donor area in the back of your head where your hair is genetically programmed to resist testosterone.
Step 2: Dissection of the Follicular Units
Each graft is extracted with the same consistency in diameter and length, resulting in a dramatically increased take rate.
Step 3: Creation of the Recipient Sites
Dr. Soltero, MD, FACS, creates recipient sites in the proper angle, direction and orientation according to the artistic hair transplant plan he has designed specifically for you.
Step 4: Placement of the Hair Graft
The follicular units are then carefully separated by size. Dr. Soltero, MD, FACS, transplants the grafts into the balding and thinning areas of your scalp. Each graft is meticulously harvested as it naturally occurs and implanted individually to ensure the best results.
FUE vs. Traditional Strip Method
Unlike the traditional STRIP method, which requires the physician to surgically cut and remove a strip of the scalp from the back of the head and implant it into balding areas, Dr. Soltero, MD FACS uses the FUE. The FUE device extracts follicular units and repositions them in the thinning areas. This alleviates any clumping of the transplanted hairs and avoids scarring.
