FUE (follicular unit extraction) is a minimally invasive method in hair transplantation. Unlike strip harvesting, the traditional technique in which a strip of skin is removed from a donor site and cut into individual units, FUE uses an instrument to remove multiple groups of one to four hairs. The great thing about FUE is that there’s no linear scar. The downside is that a fewer number of hair grafts can be gathered per session.
The average person can lose 100 hairs every day, but more substantial hair loss can be a sign of more than just age. Read up on the causes, and the treatments.
A hair transplant (also called hair restoration or hair implantation) permanently restores the hair by transplanting new follicles into balding or thinning areas. Healthy follicles are taken from other areas of the body, most often the back or the sides of the head. This can be done by removing a single strip of skin and hair or removing the follicles individually. The number of grafts needed depends on the patient and the size of the area being treated. A typical surgery involves anywhere from 1,000 to 3,000 grafts.
NeoGraft is an FDA-cleared machine used for hair transplantation. It uses a minimally invasive method that is a variation of the FUE technique, which involves harvesting hair grafts one at a time instead of cutting a strip of skin from a donor site like the back of the head (FUG technique). NeoGraft uses an automated handheld device to remove follicles and implant them in balding areas.
Eyebrow transplant surgery involves taking hair from another part of the body and transplanting it to the brow area. Healthy follicles are harvested from the donor site,typically the back of the head, and transferred to create the desired brow shape. Hair transplanted to this area will begin to grow like it did in its original location, so regular trimming will be needed.
Forehead reduction (commonly referred to as hairline lowering) doesn’t reduce the forehead, but rather moves down the location of where your hair grows in. Also known as scalp advancement, this procedure may be performed during facial feminization surgery.
