Dr Vories,

I agree. I hadn't really thought of "long hair FUE," though it could work in this application, but I do think mFUE allows for a nice approach to "hidden" FUE procedures. It definitely...

Dr Lindsey,

Excellent write up yourself!

You bring up a few more good applications of the mFUE technique: scar repair and removing tough grafts from patients who are "stripped out" or have...

Dr Vories,

I agree that the grafts are skeletonized during extraction with small punches. However, I still haven't seen any conclusive evidence that placement techniques will improve these grafts...

Dr Vories,

We initially thought someone would have tried this approach along the way. But we searched the literature and found nothing. Did you publish your findings somewhere? The scarring...

KO,

The removal of the mFUE grafts is similar, but they differ from mini strips. Dr Feller actually tried the mini strip approach before, and wasn't happy with the scarring.

With mFUE, the...

Yonex,

It's difficult to quantify how "big" the tools are for two reasons: 1. we have played around with many slightly different sizes to optimize the number and quantity of the grafts we get...

Beautiful work!

To address the crown issue ...

There is a reason why HT surgeons call the crown "the black hole." It takes a LOT of grafts to rebuild it adequately, and it's always expanding...

Delancy,

I do agree with limiting the number of grafts via FUE in one session. FUE yield is more variable as it is, and the 5,000 graft cases in one day make me a tad nervous.

However, I...

Weare,

Isn't PMA only 4.5 months or so out? When I reviewed his thread, the most recent image I saw was the back of his results while he was showcasing the crown work. I also seriously disagree...

Scar,

I never said he "woke up" to the realities of FUE. He's performed the procedure for upwards of 12 years. He tried a lot of different things with it over the years, and came to these...
