What Is FUE Hair Transplant? Hair loss has steadily escalated in recent years due to the use of multiple toxic agents, weather pressures, medications, and inorganic diets. Androgenetic alopecia affects almost half of the world’s women and men. Early hair loss can be very painful, particularly among young men and women. Baldness can also be troublesome in advanced ages, even above 50 years of age. While there are multiple causes of hair loss, the most common is androgenetic alopecia. Patients and doctors prefer medical care. However, medical care has shown promising effects in a small number of patients.
What Is FUE Hair Transplant Surgery?
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplant is one of the most widely used procedures. The FUE hair transplant process is simpler and less invasive compared to the other methods: for this reason, people who choose to perform a hair transplantation treatment favor this form. FUE is a form of separating hair follicles from the donor area, such as the limbs, legs, and stomach, and generally the back of the head. Hair transplantation could be the best way to fix this problem in many causes of hair loss, especially in androgenetic alopecia. Hair transplantation is also successfully used to treat certain forms of hair loss other than androgenetic alopecia.
There are several modern techniques of hair transplantation, most of which are based on the greatest breakthrough in hair transplantation science, the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) process. There are no days when there are cuts in the back of the head as well as unnatural-looking hair plugs. Now, with the FUE approach (and its many variants), as well as the DHI method of transplantation, the effects are normal and long-lasting. Hair transplantation may be a permanent cure for hair loss which is done with minimal surgery. Individuals with scars, or those who have lost their hair due to different disorders, can also undergo hair transplantation surgery safely. Both men and women will benefit from this technique.
How is Hair Transplant with the FUE Method Applied?
The first phase in recovery is to brace for surgery. It takes about an hour to ready the patient. Pictures of the patient are taken; the hair is shingled shorter than 1 millimeter and the goal area is decided by our staff. Donor site anesthetized with nearby anesthetics. Our specialist extracts hair follicles from the donor site which takes almost three hours. Removed follicles are again immersed in a special solution by our doctor, which is +4 or +10 degrees. The target transplantation area is anesthetized and canals in which hair follicles are implanted are opened with the assistance of special grooving chisels. The open canals are filled with hair follicles which take three hours. The whole process will take six to nine hours.
How Long does FUE Hair Transplant Take?
FUE hair transplantation ranges between 4 and 8 hours. It’s a time-consuming process since the hair follicles are positioned one by one. Post-operation, the patient leaves the hospital on the same day as the surgery. Our doctor can decide whether the patient will wash his head. When the hair is transplanted by FUE, the hair follicles are inserted one by one in the scalp such that the grafts are placed in the right position such that the effect is normal. One of the main reasons for the popularity of the FUE hair transplantation is its natural look.
Hair follicles are inserted one by one during FUE hair transplantation. The required alignment of the grafts is then calculated for a natural outcome. The normal appearance of FUE is one of the key factors for the popularity of hair transplantation.
Does Hair Transplantation with the FUE Method Cause Pain?
During treatment, the donor site is wrapped with a bandage. It’s going to be eliminated in several days. Painkillers for potential minor aches and antibiotics for possible infections are administered by our surgeon following surgery.
How Long does the Growing Hair Take After the Surgical Procedure?
Transplanted hair follicles become solid after a week after surgery. In order to remove the incrustations, the patient can wash his head carefully throughout this week. The transplanted hair develops for two to three weeks and then falls off. The transplanted follicles remain in their place. About a fortnight, the hair starts to grow again. Hair in the front area grows in 6 to 8 months and the hair in the top area grows in 8 or 12 months.
Will There be Any Scar After the Hair Transplant with the FUE Method?
Scars and bald spots greater than 1 millimeter can be created on the donor site following surgery. These spots will be invisible as the underlying hair grows. Therefore, hair transplantation using the FUE process does not leave noticeable scars.
What should the Patient Avoid Before the Hair Transplant with the FUE Method?
Hair transplant, therefore, needs a recovery time; you can stop seven to ten days in advance. Blood thinners, anti-depressant pills, painkillers, vitamin E, and vitamin B multivitamins should not be administered before surgery. You should still not drink alcohol three days before surgery.
What should the Patient Avoid After the Hair Transplant with the FUE Method?
The patient can secure the transplant area for seven to ten days after surgery. The bandage applied after surgery will be removed on the first or second day after surgery. Hair should be washed on a regular basis and our surgeon will tell you about the manner of washing. Our doctor will clear incrustations from your scalp on the seventh day. It is important to keep away from swimming in the pool or the sea and visit the tanning booth in order to get better results from the surgery.
