Among the methods of hair restoration surgery, scalp reduction surgery, strip harvesting, and follicle unit extraction (FUE) are some of the most common. An FUE hair transplant procedure involves three general steps including extraction, creation of recipient incisions, and implantation of follicular grafts.
FUE is a method of harvesting grafts used in FUE hair transplants. In terms of hair restoration surgery, it is the latest major technological advance. In an FUE hair transplant, many hair follicles are injected into the scalp in a single session, resulting in excellent regrowth and minimal scarring. In contrast to a strip of donor tissue that has been removed from the scalp, each follicular unit (FU) is obtained directly from the scalp. The original method of FUE hair transplants used hand-held punches of various types to remove follicular units one by one.
FUE transplants are minimally invasive which makes them a more convenient option than other methods. Our comfortable, welcoming offices provide FUE transplants using only local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Typically, patients arrive on the morning of the procedure and are allowed to go home that same day. Compared to other hair transplant methods, FUE involves fewer post-operative restrictions and tends to heal and recover faster than other methods.
An FUE transplant involves removing follicular units one by one from the scalp. In this way, we avoid the more obvious linear scar often associated with other hair transplant methods. As a result, scarring is discrete and virtually undetectable after healing and regrowth. As a result of the minimal scarring, patients can wear their hair very short if they so desire (but not completely shaved) without being able to tell they have had a hair transplant.
The survival rate of FUE hair grafts is 90-95%, compared to 75% for older FUT methods. During the FUE harvesting process, precision harvesting minimizes trauma or transection of hair follicles.
Hair should grow for a lifetime from FUE grafts if the extractions and transplants are done skillfully and your hair and scalp are well cared for. Additionally, if your hair thins in other areas over time, you can repeat FUE to fill these gaps. In the future, more potential donor hair can be harvested if individual follicles are used instead of strips.
The recovery time from FUE is short. For about 3 days, you may experience swelling or discomfort. During the healing process, some hairs may fall out, it is normal to experience this. Aftercare instructions will be provided by Keep Glowing Medical Spa staff.
During the first three months, you should begin to notice significant differences. It is not a cause for concern if the first new hairs are thin, fine, lighter in color, or have no color at all. The subsequent growth of hair will be thicker and more substantial.
Patchy and uneven hair growth is also not uncommon at first. Since the follicles may have been implanted at different times in their growth cycle, they tend to heal and regrow in different ways. By six months the final results should be visible.
FUE hair transplants are generally appropriate for patients who are candidates for hair restoration surgery. It is possible for a patient to be unsuitable for a strip harvest but achieve a good result with FUE. Staff at Keep Glowing Medical Spa will help patients determine whether or not FUE hair transplants are the most effective option to restore their full head of hair.
