What is a 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.

What are the causes of Hair Loss?

Many things can cause hair loss, so it’s important to look at all of them. The reasons can be very different and complicated, ranging from infections to hormonal changes.

Androgenic alopecia, which shows up as male or female pattern baldness, is a common cause. Most people are surprised to learn that over 50% of men over 
50 and at least 40% of women, especially after menopause, have this problem.

Finding the cause of hair loss is the first thing we do to stop it. For example, if an illness is to blame, we will give you antibiotics. Steroid treatments may be needed to weaken the immune system in people with autoimmune diseases.

After taking care of the root cause, we work on making hair grow faster. Assuring good skin health is an important part of this because skin supports hair cells. Making changes to your lifestyle, like getting enough sleep and eating well, is very important.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) circumvents most of the risks of strip technique. It works by extracting the hair follicle one unit at a time by using a small puncture between the size of 0.8mm to 1.3mm. As a result, there is no obvious scarring, minimum risk of nerve or blood vessel injury and the area heals rapidly without any stitching. The down-side is more time is required to complete the procedure as each follicle is extracted individually.

As hair follicles are extracted from the back of the hair, it will generally retain the dense and strong properties when it is at the back of the hair. 

The result is natural and the transplanted hair will grow by itself.
