Hair transplant is a popular surgical procedure performed by medical professionals as a hair loss solution. It involves the removal of hair follicles from denser areas of the scalp, and then transplantation into the areas of hair loss concern. One of the popular methods of hair transplant include Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), and listed below are some of its benefits.
Results are Natural-Looking
Professionally-trained hair transplant specialists will place your hair follicles strategically in hair loss areas so that the results look natural. When performed by our knowledgeable team, there will be no visible pattern to the new hair growth. In addition, the use of your own hair for the transplant means that there will be no difference in appearance between the transplanted and original hair.
Permanent Restoration Outcome
Once the hair follicles have been transplanted and hair is growing, the results are permanent. The hairs will continue their natural growth cycles in their new location. However, if the root cause of the hair loss is not addressed, these hairs can also be lost over time.
For the best hair transplant results, make sure you trust your care to a qualified and experienced team of medical professionals who are specially trained to perform hair transplants. Dr. Colin Hong and his team of hair transplant specialists will ensure that their combined knowledge and training will give you the results you desire.
Although FUE is technically a surgery, it is minimally invasive. The use of local anaesthesia and, if needed, a sedative means that you shouldn’t feel any discomfort during the procedure.
The minimally invasive nature of FUE leads to a quick recovery time – about 6-8 days. There are no stitches to remove, and pain will be minimal. There may be slight swelling at the scalp which will resolve itself after a few days. Analgesics will be prescribed by Dr. Hong to ensure that your recovery is as comfortable as can be.
No Visible Scarring
Because the hair follicles are extracted individually by a punch-needle, no large incisions are made and there is no need for stitches. The small punches heal quickly, and if you have no problems with wound healing then you shouldn’t have any visible scars after the procedure, especially if you wear your hair long.
Suitable for Men and Women
Hair loss can affect people across all genders, and FUE is a suitable treatment for everyone. Even though FUE hair transplant is frequently undergone by men, women suffering from hair loss can also benefit from this procedure.
An FUE procedure takes about a full day to complete. Depending on the density and size of the treatment area, it can last anywhere from 5-12 hours. You might need another session if you want thicker hair or if your hair continuously falls.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) can be a great solution for hair loss. You can restore the density of your hair, allowing you to regain your confidence and style it however you desire.
