Question #5 – The Benefits of PAI’s Multi-Unit Hair Grafting Procedure?

MUHG, or Multi-Unit Hair Grafting ™, is so sought after because it delivers a natural result, giving more hair volume or coverage than more traditional methods such as Follicular Unit Grafting alone.

In cases where procedures are done entirely with Follicular Unit grafting techniques, more of the hairs that are in the resting or Telogen phase are actually dissected out from around the base of the graft and discarded. In addition many more hairs die from hair bulb transection. This is when the hair bulb is damaged or killed with the surgical instrument.

At any given time, only between 40 or 60 percent of your hair is visible and growing. The rest of it is in a Telogen (resting) phase and cannot be seen by the naked eye. Using Micro or Follicular grafting techniques, where only single hair grafts are used, will actually dissect out a lot of this resting hair. With Follicular Unit transplants, over the course of the next 12 to 18 months that it takes to get your final result, you will actually lose a lot of the hair that you had transplanted. With the Multi-Unit Hair Grafting ™ technique, the net effect is that is that you receive more hair per session and more of that hair survives. For the patient, this means the very best possible result in the shortest possible time combined with the most cost-effective investment. In short, the patient wins … guaranteed.

    Just being able to get the result i have in one treatment, that’s what i wanted. Its given me so much more confidence and a resurgence of a feeling of youth, it changed my life.

  2. Alec Stephens says:

    It has given me a totally natural look and feel. It also achieved the goal of doing it in one procedure.

  3. Mike says:

    At this stage, I am at the 4 month mark and I elected to have the Multi-Unit Hair Grafting because it was going to give me the best coverage and density that I was wanting. So far, all the new hair is starting to grow in and the coverage is great! The area is filling in nicely and very excited to see what my results look like after 8 more months of growth.

  4. Ken Sothman says:

    I had a lot of loss so I wanted to get as much hair as i could at one time and the Multi – Unit Grafting gave me exactly that.

  5. Ryan Hussy says:

    I had a lot of loss and wanted the most hair possible in as few procedures as possible and the multi grafting gave me that.

  6. Anand says:

    I am of Indian origin with oily scalp which caused lot of hair fall. I was involved with systematic laser treatment and crown hair transplant procedure, I went through laser treatment for an year which really helped me to prevent hair thinning and made my black hair denser.

  7. Karl Jerome says:

    I just had my 1 year follow up after a multi unit hair grafting proceedure and the results have been excellent. Thinning areas filled in nicely. Totally satisfied with the results.

  8. Ian says:

    By taking more hair and planting them all at once you get more coverage and a more natural-looking result at the end of the procedure. Instead of doing a little here and a little there you get a natural transition. You’ll get comments almost right away from people you’ve known saying things like ”I didn’t know you had such a pretty color” or ”You should grow your hair out more often”. My friends that have known me for years didn’t even notice they just thought I always kept my hair super short. Now they tell me to keep it longer and how it makes me look way better than when I had it shorter. That kind of result is only available through a procedure like the Multi Unit Hair Grafting.

  9. Jim says:

    I had the MUHG method done a year ago to fill in my receding hairline. I chose this method because I could get the most hair in a single procedure. Couldn’t be happier with the results. The suture line is next to impossible to see and my hairline is so natural looking that nobody would ever guess I had this procedure done.

  10. Ryan S. says:

    I needed my hair line lowered and wanted to try and do it in one go around. I was very happy the Multi-Unit Hair Grafting gave me the results in a single procedure.

  11. Justin Anderson says:

    The benefits of this are simple, you can gain maximum coverage in a single procedure. Contrary to other procedures where you would have to go back multiple times.

  12. John Ahalt says:

    I didnt have a large area to cover so I actually had the ARTAS robot FUE procedure because it suited my needs best. I have very fine hair and i wanted to wear my hair as short as possible in the area in the back and for nothing to be visible. The robot was truly amazing and it was easy to go through

  13. Tom Bakken says:

    I feel confident, younger and happy. My better half loves it too! I have been recommending PAI since I had the procedure over 1 year ago.

  14. Richard says:

    The benefits to the Multi-Unit Hair Graft was several things acting together. First, the costs. It is by far the most cost effective procedure and allows for up to 3 times as much hair to be transplanted for a fraction of the cost of other procedures. I have a suture line so well done, that after 1- week it is nearly impossible to see the line. The staff here, had to look hard for the purpose of photographing. I will be able to maintain my military-style of haircut without ever worrying that the suture area is visible. I couldn’t be happier.

  15. LF says:

    I had the ARTAS Robotic procedure and it was incredibly easy to go through, amazing technology. I only wished I would have done the largest procedure possible!

  16. Ian says:

    Simply they can take more hair from your donor site and at the same time place it into the area being covered. You’ll get more hair in one shot than any other procedure and that will help to make the transition more natural in appearance. I’ve had nothing but compliments about my hair since. Those that have known me for several years are just shocked when I take my hat off now.
