Aging or other factors like genetics can lead to hair loss in both men and women. A number of treatment options are offered to cure hair loss but not all of them work effectively. A hair transplant is considered the most effective way to treat baldness permanently.
Am I the Right Candidate for this Treatment?
You can be an ideal candidate for this procedure if;
- If you have a good amount of hair in donor area of the head.
- You have bald spots at top or front of the head
- You want a less painful and non-invasive treatment
- You want a quick healing procedure
In the FUE procedure, specific hair follicles are extracted instead of removing a whole strip of hairs. It is performed for restoring the hairs and protect the follicles for from further balding.
The procedure begins with the application of a local anesthetic. Your surgeon will use a punch tool to extract the hair follicles from the donor site. Extraction of hair follicles can be done manually or with a power assisted punch tool or through a robotic system. It does not lead to a noticeable linear scar formation but the survival rate of FUE grafts is said to be lower as compared to FUT technique. If the surgery is performed by a well-experienced surgeon, the chance of graft survival is quite high. The grafts are placed by the surgeon with the help of specified machine.
A FUE Hair transplant is going to cost you more but the natural looking results will be worth it.
Recovering from Hair Transplant Surgery
The recovery process after a FUE hair transplant technique is quite shorter than traditional methods as it is a minimally invasive procedure that does not involve any incisions or stitches to be made. You will be asked to take a few days off from work days but you will be good to go after 24 hours of the surgery. Your scalp might feel tender or sore after the effect of anesthesia is gone but these side effects will not last longer than a day.
Importance of Choosing a Trained Surgeon
It is very important for you to choose a well-trained hair transplant surgeon to perform the procedure. You should look for board certification when you are consulting a plastic surgeon as the certifications show that the surgeon is well-trained.
