Hair thinning, hair loss or alopecia are all unaesthetic and highly bothersome conditions that manage to affect us not only at a physical level, but also at a psychological one, creating a permanent cosmetic distress and thus altering our self-esteem. Regardless of the hair loss cause, Renew Skin & Health Clinic and its team of highly trained and experienced hair specialists and cosmetic surgeons come to your aid with a revolutionary and highly effective and safe solution for baldness affecting both men and women, namely the surgical hair transplant procedures.
The new techniques of surgical hair transplant, such as the follicular unit extraction or FUE and the follicular unit transplantation or FUT have made the hair restoration treatments virtually undetectable, generally permanent solutions for hair loss or alopecia sufferers. Both of the surgical hair transplant procedures are based on the same principle, namely the extraction of healthy, alopecia-resistant strands of hairs or follicular units from a donor area, which is usually in the back of the head, and their transplantation into the balding or affected areas, where it will start to grow normally and restore a beautiful and thick hair.
The FUE hair transplant technique is less invasive as it implies the harvesting of follicular units using small, circular incisions of approx. 1 mm in size, the wounds healing completely in about 7 to 10 days, leaving no scars. After the grafts of healthy hair are harvested from the donor area, tiny recipient sites are made with a fine needle-point instrument into the affected areas, where the extracted follicular units are transplanted. Although less invasive than the FUT, the FUE will take more time, in some cases even 1 or 2 sessions, depending on the size of the balding area in need for hair restoration treatment.
The FUT hair transplant method, although more invasive as it consists in the removal of a strip of tissue containing follicular units from the donor area, takes less time and ensures a larger quantity of hair grafts to be transplanted. The linear scar remaining in the donor area will be visible, but can be concealed if the patient lets his/her grow a bit longer. As with the FUE hair transplant technique, the harvested follicular units are then implanted into the same tiny recipient sites covering the balding areas.
Both the FUE and FUT hair transplant techniques have advantages and disadvantages, but a hair specialist or cosmetic surgeon is the only one who can recommend you the surgical hair transplant method that best suits your individual case. At Renew Skin & Health Clinic our specialists will first perform a specialized consultation which will include the thorough assessment of your medical history, to determine the exact cause of your hair loss or baldness, and your current health condition to determine if you are indeed an ideal patient for the surgical hair transplant procedure.
