This is a fairly new revolutionary treatment which helps to solve your hair loss problem! Although it is a minor surgical method, it is also minimally invasive and uses a special tool that does not cause any linear scarring. No stitches will be required during the procedure. This minimally invasive surgical technique involves the removal of hair follicles from the donor area and inserting them into the recipient area by using small needle punches.
It uses hair from your own body, chosen from a “donor area” to be transplanted to the area suffering from bald spots or hair thinning. The strands are plucked out one by one, before being reinserted into the treatment area to slowly cover up the spots lacking hair.
Although the process can be lengthy, most individuals can complete follicular unit extraction in a single session. However, this depends on your specific hair condition and also if you are suitable for the procedure. Your doctor will consult and discuss options and outcomes with you before going ahead with the process.
The results are permanent and look completely natural because it uses your own hair. Although some of the transplanted hair follicles will not last, over 90% will be retained. This is more than enough to ensure that your hairline or bald spots will be completely covered, restoring your self-confidence and image to the way it was before!
Other benefits of FUE hair transplant include:
The average person tends to shed about 50-100 hairs every day; this hair loss is minimal and barely noticeable. However, excessive hair loss could lead to an unsightly appearance with thinning hair, bald spots, or receding hairlines. Balding can affect both men and women, with hair losing its volume as a result. Large clumps of hair may even fall out when it is being washed or combed if the hair has been significantly weakened.
By getting FUE procedure, the doctors will need to extract the healthy and strong hair follicles from the back of the patient’s hair. The donor area will heal from time to time within 7 to 14 days. When the grafts are ready for transplantation, small incisions are made to match the patient’s natural hair growth pattern in the recipient area. Then, the grafts are strategically placed, one by one. The placement is intended to produce a natural look, with adequate density and coverage of the thinning areas or bald spots. It also doesn’t produce a large and visible scar to the patient.
Do avoid ice cream or aspirin and stay away from alcoholic drinks from 3 to 5 days after the procedure. When combing hair at the treated area, you have to do it carefully and gently to avoid moving the planted roots. Do not scrub, sunbaths or using hair dryers in the first two weeks, especially those with hot air.
Do seek professional and certified doctors for your hair transplant procedure in order to avoid any complication related to your hair loss problems.
Patients may experience minimal side effects from this hair loss treatment such as scalp numbing, some swelling due to the removal of the hair follicle, bleeding, infection, bruising and also a crust that forms on the areas of the scalp where hair was removed or implanted.
The treated area (scalp) may be sore following a hair transplant procedure. The doctor will prescribe a pain medication, antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection and anti-inflammatory medications to keep swelling down.
Recovery time is short and little risk of complications. Hair in the donor area will grow back in a few days, after which the procedure will seem almost unnoticeable. Most individuals are able to return to their normal lives and routines without any issue, with many even going back to work the next day.
A bandage is applied to the head section of the patient after the procedure. Pain control is provided with a pain reliever.
