Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
Newport Beach, CA
For many people, hair loss is a difficult experience; it can be devastating to lose something that was once an important part of your overall identity. It may prevent you from actively engaging in life and doing the things you used to enjoy.
With FUE hair restoration, you can reclaim your confidence and enjoy thick, healthy hair again. This innovative procedure restores hair that has been lost due to aging genetics, health conditions, and other factors.
Dr. Christopher Varona is a renowned hair transplant specialist who has extensive experience with the FUE technique. He is passionate about doing the harvesting of grafts himself and has spent 10 years developing his speed, accuracy, and technical approach to donor harvesting. His artistic approach and high-yield grafting techniques allow patients to have dense, healthy hair that matches their natural growth pattern. FUE is an excellent option for patients of all ages, and it is especially popular as it does not produce linear scarring.
Dr. Varona prides himself on being one of the few hair surgeons who performs the graft extractions manually.
“I believe the donor harvesting has to be looked at as artistically as the recipient area because the purpose of an FUE is to allow the donor area to be exposed with short (or shaved hair) with as little detectability as possible. Spacing, punch size, and distribution all play into the art of camouflage. Having someone (or something) else do my harvesting would not feel right to me. I believe patients expect their surgeon to be able to perform the procedure better than anyone else, and I’ve dedicated the last 10 years to doing just that. Besides the fact that I find harvesting challenging and exciting, it’s part of my job and I love it.”
