62 MAY/JUNE 2018 | Med Esthetics performed by qualifi ed, properly trained hair restoration surgeons, hair transplantation is a safe and highly effective procedure to correct hair loss. However, it is a cosmetic surgical procedure, and any attempt to downplay the signifi cant surgical aspects of FUE to appear less invasive is misleading and potentially dangerous to patients." Dr. Mejia explained that the term "extrac- tion" implies to some patients a nonsurgical procedure that only involves "extracting" hairs, as if they were being plucked out of the scalp without surgery. "Amending FUE terminology is one more way that we can in- form patients about the true surgical nature of the procedure so they can make better decisions about their choice of physician and treatment," he said.
