Recent technological and medical innovations in hair transplant and hair restoration are allowing us to better and more convincingly conceal the effects of alopecia, or hair loss, while exposing the patient to minimal risk. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair surgery, also referred to as follicular transfer, is the most non-invasive form of surgical hair transplant; FUE hair transplant is a very exciting surgical development that allows its beneficiaries to enjoy very natural aesthetic results with very little damage to the skin of the scalp. The experienced hair specialists of Renew Skin & Health Clinic will place their knowledge, the latest technology and the necessary resources at your disposal in order for you to benefit from the very best hair transplant results.
The follicular unit extraction or FUE is one of two primary methods of reusing naturally occurring follicular units, which are in fact compact groups of 1 to 4 strands of hair, in order to cover the areas of the scalp which present total or partial hair loss. The main difference between FUE hair surgery and other surgical hair restoration method is the actual process through which the hair is extracted from the donor area and then transplanted to the areas of the scalp which have been affected by alopecia. Unlike the classical hair transplant technique, where a large hair graft is removed from the donor area, dissected into smaller sections and then transplanted to the area that is lacking hair, with FUE harvesting, individual follicular units are extracted directly from the patient’s donor area, usually located at the back of the head, and then transplanted in such a way as to obtain the best possible aesthetic results and minimal scarring.
Follicular unit extraction hair surgery is safe, effective and is less invasive than the follicular unit transplantation (FUT) hair surgery, the second method of surgically reusing naturally occurring follicular units mentioned above, but also tends to take longer and has a greater transection rate. The transection rate refers to the number of hair follicles that actually survive the FUE harvesting process; if a hair follicle is transected accidentally during the operation, the chances are that the hair strand will fall off relatively quickly from its implantation area. The hair specialists of the Renew Skin & Health Clinic team warn that the environment, the quality of the tools and the medic’s professional experience are absolutely essential elements during this delicate procedure. We strongly advise you to carefully choose the FUE clinics that have obtained consistent positive results in hair loss surgery. At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, we are able to provide you with the best medical expertise, as the excellent FUE hair transplant reviews given by our patients after the operation show.
The scarring resulting from FUE harvesting is called “pit” scarring. Small, round and generally white scars appear on the patient’s donor area as an unavoidable result of the harvesting process. These scars are, however, far easier to conceal than the scars that are produced by strip harvesting. Another advantage of FUE hair surgery over FUT hair transplant is that the post-operatory discomfort and the recovery period are considerably smaller. If the procedure is conducted correctly, it will eventually lead to natural and long-term hair regrowth.
