What is FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT?
A hair transplant works by transplanting stronger hair follicles from the occiput area (back of the head) to the front or vertex (top of the head) because these hairs are generally more resistant to DHT and will continue to grow, as if they are still at the back of the scalp. The standard method of cutting off a strip of scalp from the back to obtain the hair follicle has been effective. However, there is a risk associated with the excision of the scalp, as it may result in a visible scar, numbness and in some instances cause damage to the blood vessels, resulting in bleeding and possible tissue injury to the area supplied by this blood vessel.
Besides hair loss, hair transplants may also be used to cover-up scars caused by burns or surgical procedures like a facelift or thread-lift. There are also individuals who are born with sparse eyebrows, sideburns, and eyelashes, who may benefit from a hair transplant to these areas.
For those who may not have enough donor’s hair, follicles can even be harvested from the body. Although a better result could be achieved from hair harvested from the beard, as follicles harvested from the arms and legs can prove to be unpredictable. Because it takes several months before the transplanted hairs start to grow, advanced planning is required if you have a targeted date to achieve your desired result.
