View Full Version : FUE from external donor

This site (http://www.costevaluation.com/hair-transplant-cost.php) seems to think that FUE involves receiving donor hair from someone else:

FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction, a fancy way to say “we’re taking someone else’s hair and giving it to you.” Yes, there are hair donors out there, people who are paid to let their follicles be “harvested” and implanted into your scalp. Because the hair is not chemically enhanced nor part of an artificial hair “crop,” it has a much more natural look and feel, depending of course on the suitability of the donor. These individuals are scrupulously “matched” with your own hair color, curl and texture; transplantation begins when you and your follicular surgeon are satisfied with the match. FUE hair transplant cost will average about $3500 to $6000, a bit more expensive; $3500 will buy 500 grafts, but FUE hairs will stay in longer and give a fuller look.

Oh wow... Now that is a problem... I can see hundreds of people, if not thousands of people, believing this is true. I sent an e-mail. Hopefully they will correct it.

That is misinformation (my polite way of saying BS) from start to finish.

That's just scary! Hey, while we do your renal transplant we can throw in a few FUE's from your donor. Hope you like curly hair!
