First applications of FUE hair transplantation was made by Dr. Ray Woods in Australia. Therefore, FUE hair transplantation was called as ‘Woods Method’.
But, FUE hair transplantation method has entered to medical literature for the first time by the contributions of Dr. Raasman nad Dr. Bernstein. In 2002, their published paper, ‘Follicular Unit Extraction’, has given its name to this hair transplantation method.
FUE hair transplantation method is a procedure that depends on technology and equipment. Therefore, these equipment and technologies can continuously develop, and effects directly to hair transplantation results.
These rapid developments on hair transplantation method provides growth on the results of operation; and as a result of this, many doctors are willing to work in this field and it leads to sector growth rapidly.
Extraction part of FUE hair transplantation method was performed manually until 2009, but after that it moved ages forward by the help of an equipment called motorized FUE. FUE hair transplantation operation length was down to one day, and the costs were reduced and many more people chose hair transplantation method which is a minimal invasive operation.
These technologies targeted to improve FUE hair transplantation method are not ended; instead, they keep on track by the invention of Robotic FUE in 2011.
