Hair thinning and baldness is inevitable for the vast majority of men and a good percentage of women. As psychologically and emotionally devastating as this can be, science has progressed and we now have several options that can help slow the progression of hair loss, as well as transplant healthy hair into areas of thinning and balding to improve one’s appearance.
Prior to the development of FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction, there was the “plug method” which was exactly as it sounds. Round plugs were removed from areas where there was hair and placed in the front of the head. Over time this left a person with what we call “doll’s hair”. Then the “Strip” method evolved, where a large strip of hair was cut from the back of the head, and individual hair follicles were separated from that strip and placed into a person’s scalp. This unfortunately left a person with a linear scar in the back of the head, and at times numbness of the scalp from nerve injury. With today’s hair styles, that scar is easily visible and unsightly to those that have it.
What is an FUE hair transplant? FUE is an advanced, minimally invasive hair transplant method which allows for the harvesting of individual follicles from the back of the head
(donor area) without the use of a scalpel or stitches and therefore leaves no scar. Those follicles are then methodically and meticulously placed into the front of the scalp, giving you a natural looking hairline. Individual follicles are also placed in selected areas to increase fullness.
The method of placement is determined prior to the beginning of the procedure to assist with the patient’s expectations.
Other advantages to the FUE include faster healing and more comfort compared to the “Strip” method. The minimally invasive FUE technique, allows a person to return to work in a couple days and once healing is complete, there is the option of wearing a short haircut and not worrying about the appearance of a scar.
Follicular Unit Extraction is the only technique used at HHR. It is the most effective way of transplanting hair that gives a person a natural looking hair line, with no linear scar.
