Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) methods for harvesting hair follicles during Hair Transplant Surgery allows patients to regain significantly thicker hair without the risk of unsightly linear scarring, says Hair Transplant Surgeon of Melbourne, Dr Rhett Bosnich.
Dr Bosnich owns and operates the Newin Institute in Melbourne, Australia’s leading clinic combining hair transplant surgery and cosmetic regenerative medicine (non-surgical hair restoration, using PRP and Stem Cell Therapy). Dedicated to the art of Hair Transplant Surgery, Dr Rhett Bosnich (ABHRS) is Australia’s leading surgeon in both the FUG strip method and the FUE method of extracting hair follicles for transplantation to treat male and pattern baldness. He and the team at Newin Institute also treat hair loss in the eyebrows, to help both men and women achieve a thicker and fuller set of eyebrows that frame and balance the face.
“Despite much conjecture amongst the older Hair Transplant Surgeons, FUE offers a minimally invasive and highly effective surgical hair transplant technique. We have just released the 12 month post-operative photos of a male with Norwood 4 hair loss who we transplanted over 1.5 days by the FUE method. We transplanted a massive 2773 grafts and patient is ecstatic.” says Dr Bosnich. “What’s really exciting is that the patient initially came to us for a second opinion as he was considering a hair transplant in Europe.”Dr Bosnich says that when the patient realized the level of the skill, artistry and experience of Dr Bosnich and his team, the patient decided to have his surgery at Newin Institute because he was confident about getting results. The patient was mindful of the fact that he wouldn’t be able to receive the same follow up care from an overseas clinic without having to travel back to be reviewed.
“FUE Hair Transplant surgery in Australia is among the best in the world, so it makes sense to have it here where you can be assured of complete follow-up care. The additional benefits are that large-sized FUE procedures are more affordable in the short term: no linear scarring and patients have significantly less discomfort. They can return to work much sooner and don’t require multiple sessions to get a full head of hair.” says Dr Bosnich.
Dr Bosnich is a prestigious graduate of the highest international training program: the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgeons – one of only two other graduates in Australia.
Very few Australian doctors can perform this technique or accept its benefits. He performs the largest hair transplant surgeries in Australia, and is one of the only surgeons proficient in performing both FUG and FUE – including both manual and motorized versions.
Dr Bosnich is also the only doctor in Australia pioneering the use of the latest advances in Laboratory Amplified PRP/Stem Cell Technology in the treatment of hair loss. Dr Bosnich states that some of the growth factors in our blood have been proven to stimulate hair follicles to produce longer and stronger hairs, so what it provides is an option and an alternative between medication for hair loss and surgery.
