Manual FUE Hair Transplant Surgery
Is hair loss treatment right for you? If you are contemplating your hair restoration options, consider whether you are a good candidate for Manual FUE Hair Transplant Surgery. FUE, or Follicular Unit Extraction, is an effective way to restore your hair that appears natural and thick. Here is what you need to know about FUE and hair loss treatment:
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
FUE hair restoration involves harvesting individual hair follicles from the patient’s head, to be transplanted into the areas where hair is thinning or receding. This happens with the use of microscopic incisions along circular paths on the patient’s scalp.
A Manual Follicular Unit Extraction hair transplant is performed by a doctor, but they use a device to individually extract each hair follicle. This handheld device makes the process faster, without incisions or scarring.
Robotic FUE Hair Transplant Surgery
The Robotic FUE hair restoration procedure is quite innovative, using a robotic device to transplant hair. The doctor guides and maps out where the hair will be harvested from- as well as how much. The robot then transplants in the areas identified by the physician. The process is swift and precise.
Benefits of FUE
So, FUE provides high quality hair grafts and natural-looking results, but what else? Here are some other benefits of FUE hair restoration:
- FUE restoration is minimally invasive, and local anesthesia ensures no pain during or after the procedure.
- The recovery from FUE is fast- typically, most patients are back to regular routines within two days.
- The procedure itself only takes around eight hours to complete.
- Follicles are harvested randomly, so there is little change to the appearance of the donor hair.
FUE is an excellent option for receding hairline treatment, as well as those that choose to wear their hair quite short, as the donor areas appear unchanged and unaltered.
