What is hair transplant surgery?
Hair transplant surgery is a medical procedure used to restore areas of hair loss. The technique begins with harvesting follicles from the back of the head. These follicles are genetically strong and will not be affected by pattern hair loss. Between 1000 and 4000 follicles will be harvested and implanted, depending on the extent of the area being treated.
What is the difference between FUT and FUE surgery?
Both Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) surgeries produce excellent results and have replaced the former “plug” technique. During the FUT procedure, follicles are removed as a strip and divided into grafts under magnification. The FUE method uses a micro-punch tool to remove the follicles individually. FUE tends to be slightly more expensive due to the intensive work and skill required of the surgeon, but is less invasive than FUT and leaves no scarring.
What can be achieved with a hair transplant?
Hair transplants are an excellent option for gents who are affected by male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia). The grafts can be used to fill out any areas of hair loss, both lowering the hairline and rebuilding density in the crown for a youthful effect. The grafts are carefully placed to follow the natural flow of hair growth to create a result that is completely natural and can be groomed just like the rest of the hair.
