What is a FUE Hair Transplant?
The FUE hair transplant, otherwise known as follicular unit extraction hair transplant method, is one of the most effective and commonly used hair transplants around today – many would say the best hair transplant NYC patients can get. The procedure is done by taking individuals hair follicles out of the scalp, where the hair is still growing strong, and thick, then implanting them in another area of the scalp in which the hair may not be growing very strong or has stopped growing completely. The fact is that according to Dr. V, known to provide the BEST HAIR TRANSPLANT NYC has to offer, the hair stops growing because the follicle is damaged or ‘dead’. By taking a hair follicle from where it is still growing strong, often the back or sides, for patients suffering from male pattern baldness, and implanting it in the front of your head, it will begin growing thicker and stronger, as it would in your youth. The FUE hair transplant replaced the FUT unit transplant method, which required patients to remove an entire piece of their scalp and implant that. However, this was less effective and far more invasive surgical hair transplant.
As you get older, the three-phase cycle of hair growth and regrowth shortens until follicles no longer regrow hairs.After the transplant, the follicles will be nourished by blood vessels and begin growing hair in the area that previously had thin hair or balding.
The FUE Hair Transplant Procedure
One of the best parts of the FUE hair transplant is that it has a higher success rate, and hair follicles are less likely to be damaged in the implantation process. In addition, because the surgeon is implanting them more strategically and doesn’t have to use the entire flap of skin or scalp, it gives less of the awful “hair plug” look. The best candidate for a FUE hair transplant is someone with thinning hair or balding who still has enough hair nearby to use for a transplant.You may not be eligible for a FUE hair transplant if you don’t have enough healthy or thick hair to transplant to the thinning or balding area.
The procedure is different for everyone, however, there is a basic outline for how it might be done. In most cases the surgeon will begin by shaving down the hair in the area where the follicles will be removed – the donor area, as well as the transplant area. Using a special micro-punch device, each follicle will be removed from he scalp, one by one. Then the surgeon will make a series of incisions using a small needle in the scalp, at the treatment area – this is where the hair follicles will be inserted during the hair transplant NYC experts like Dr. V advise that surgeons need to be extra careful here as they do not want to damage the follicle, and want to ensure that the implant area is in a good location. The area is then cleaned and bandaged for recovery.
