Hair transplant for men
The FUE hair transplant procedure permanently restores hair by transplanting follicles into balding or thinning areas of the head. Hair transplants can correct male-pattern baldness and other forms of hair loss.
A hair transplant treatment generally takes a whole day and is performed under local anesthesia. Sometimes sedation or general anesthesia is used as well. During the procedure healthy hair follicles are removed from the back and/or sides of the head, and transplanted to areas where hair loss is occurring. In most of the cases they are used to create a hairline or to cover the cortex area.
The follicular units (the natural bundling of hairs as they grow in the scalp) contain on average one to four hairs. Since hair naturally grows in groupings of 1 to 4 hairs, current techniques harvest and transplant hair “follicular units” in their natural groupings. Therefore modern hair transplant can achieve a natural appearance by copying original hair orientation. The most common technique is the FUE technique (sometimes referred to as Follicular Unit Extraction technique). In which each follicular unit is removed one at a time. It is a time consuming process, but one that avoids the linear scar from the donor site, like it is done with the FUT technique.
The average number of individual grafts needed depends on the patients hair situation. Anywhere from 1,000 to 4,000 grafts is possible in an average day of surgery. The recovery time depends on the duration of the surgery. Most patients
have mild pain, numbness and soreness. This can be managed with pain medication. It is normal that hairs from the transplanted follicles fall out after 10 to 14 days. They regrow after 3 to 4 months.
