FUE Hair Transplantation is an advanced procedure that has become increasingly popular with men and women looking to restore and rejuvenate their hair. The procedure is minimally invasive, non-surgical, and uses a small device to extract individual hair follicles from the donor area. With the extracted follicles, the surgeon is able to create a natural looking follicular pattern in the recipient area, which has the effect of restoring the patient’s natural hairline.
FUE Hair Transplantation process starts with a consultation with a skilled hair transplant surgeon, during which the patient and the doctor will discuss the individual concerns of the patient, the history of his/her hair loss, the goals of the procedure, and any other relevant details. In this initial consultation, the doctor will also be able to determine the ideal donor area for extracting the hair follicles from, usually the back or sides of the head.
Once the consultation is complete, the patient will have preparations done prior to the FUE Hair Transplantation, including shaving the donor area and assessing the scalp’s health. The FUE procedure is outlined as the following: a tiny, 1mm tool is used to individually extract the donor grafts from the scalp area. This extraction process is done at multiple different depths to provide a natural-looking blend of the follicles. The extracted follicles are then carefully inspected and sorted according to their quality, size, and other factors. This then allows the doctor to plan where the grafts will be placed in the recipient area for the best, most natural look and feel.
Placement of the hair
The next step in the FUE procedure is the placement of the hair follicles in the recipient area in the same way as the natural hair. This is done precisely with the help of forceps, special needles, and careful directions from the doctor. After all of the grafts are placed, the doctor will then cover the area with a series of healing dressings and wait for the healing process to take place.
The healing process can take up to several weeks, during which the patient may experience some temporary redness, swelling, and itching, but this will eventually resolve. In the end, the patient will then be left with a natural-looking, lustrous full head of hair.
Overall, the FUE Hair Transplantation procedure is a great option for those looking for a safe, non-surgical way to restore lost hair and reverse the effects of hair loss. As the procedure continues to gain in popularity, it’s an ideal option for those looking for a simple solution to an age-old problem.
