For those with thinning or balding hair, hair transplantation is often seen as a life-saver, as it goes a long way in helping to restore their self-esteem. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is one of the most successful hair transplant methods. It is a minimally invasive procedure that produces great results. But what are the benefits of a FUE hair transplant.
What is FUE?
FUE is a hair transplant method in which follicular unit grafts are individually extracted from the donor area. The grafts consist of 3-4 hair follicles. After being harvested, the grafts are prepared for transplant. Small incisions are made in the recipient area, and the grafts are placed in a manner that coincides with the natural growth pattern of your hair.
Benefits of FUE
- There is no visible scar with the FUE. Follicular UnitTransplant (FUT), which is the other established hair transplant method, leaves a long linear scar.
- Little or no discomfort. Patients feel virtually no pain once the scalp is anesthetized.
Results look natural. The hair follicles are placed in a manner that follows the normal growth pattern. As a result, it’s almost impossible to make a distinction between the native hair and the implanted hair.
- Short recovery. Recovery takes only a few days as a scalpel is not used to remove the hair grafts, so no sutures are required.
The results achieved with FUE are permanent and visually appealing, and it is therefore the preferred hair transplant option by many people affected by hair loss.
- FUE hair transplant is available in Guilford, CT at The Langdon Center for Laser & Cosmetic Surgery.
