Currently, we are one of the pioneers in doing micro-grafts and mini-grafts in the whole world. Using the micro-graft technique gives you the most natural looking transplanted hair especially on the front hair lines. Our facility is equipped with the latest technology in preparing grafts with the least amount of transection. We also use a special kind of micro-transplanter for delicate handling of graft and minimize the transection of other existing hair follicles in the recipient site.
Follicular Unit Extraction FUE
Follicular Unit Extraction FUE is a hair transplant technique in which follicular units are taken directly from the donor area. The grafts are then transplanted into recipient area. FUE is different from the traditional FUT in which follicular units are extracted by an extraction device without having to cut a long strip of tissues from the donor site. Individual follicular unit grafts are excised one at a time using a tiny one millimeter in diameter (or less) instrument. The device makes a small circular incision about the size of 1 millimeter or less on the skin around the follicular unit, which heals in a few days or less. The donor site is usually the scalp but the chest or beard area can also be potential donor sites. The extracted graft is then threaded to an implanter which is then directly transplanted to the recipient area.
Best Candidates for Follicular Unit Extraction
All patients are generally better candidates for the less invasive FUE technique, however the following are special cases where FUE offers treatments FUT cannot.
• Patients with inherently limited donor supply or less scalp elasticity or simply as a result of several FUTs before
• Patients who have a need or desire to wear their hair exceptionally short at the back of the scalp without having to worry about the strip surgery scar from FUT.

Altnertative Option: Strip Surgery or FUT Follicular Unit Transplant
Hair transplantation using FUT can be an alternative option to FUE. It is an out-patient surgical operation that takes hair from the back of the head and transplant it to areas of hair loss elsewhere on the scalp. It is done by cutting a strip of partial thickness scalp from the back of the head, carefully and meticulously isolating individual hair follicular units, then transplanting it to the desired recipient areas. Research have shown that hair follicles from the back of the scalp are resistant to Dihydrotestosterone DHT which makes it grow throughout life. Having that inherent eternal traits, these hair follicles tend to be resilient to hair loss once transplanted in areas that are prone to hair loss such as the frontal hairline and the vertex. It is mostly indicated in the androgenic alopecia AGA type of hair loss.
Advances in Surgical Hair Transplant
A Cell MatriStem MicroMatrix®
We, at the New England Center for Hair Restoration strive to get the latest techniques and innovations in hair transplant surgery for excellence. Over the years, we have incorporated the use of A Cell MatriStem MicroMatrix®, a sterile porcine-derived naturally occurring lyophilized extracellular matrix in powder form that maintains and supports a healing environment for soft tissue environment. Our experience shows that exposing and soaking the grafts to A Cell MatriStem MicroMatrix® yield an optimal hair follicular tissue survival, growth and proliferation. As have been claimed from other sources, the A Cell MatriStem MicroMatrix® grows a severed fingertips and other loss of tissues.
