What are the surgical hair transplant techniques available at Renew Clinic that people in Liverpool can benefit from?
Alopecia is the medical term that refers to the thinning or loss of hair or even complete hair loss and it is usually hereditary in men and hormonal in women, other causes including frequent hair wash, poor blood flow, excessive hat wearing and in the most severe cases, accidents, burns, diseases or treatments with hair loss side effects. In these cases, you need to consult a hair loss specialist who will help assess your condition and advise you on how to proceed. If surgical hair transplantation is recommended, there are two options you can choose from, FUE and FUT. The first one, also known as Follicular Unit Extraction hair transplant, is a procedure that consists in the harvesting of follicular units (groups of 1-4 hairs) from a donor area. The healthy hair is then implanted in the bald areas where it will grow normally restoring your natural hairlines. The second one, FUT or Follicular Unit Transplant, is a more invasive surgical procedure that implies the removal of a strip of tissue from the donor area. The follicular units are harvested from the strip of tissue and then implanted in the bald areas, ensuring the same results as the FUE hair transplant technique. The main difference between the two hair transplants procedures is that the FUE technique takes longer to perform (up to 4-6 hours, or even two consecutive-day sessions) while the FUT leaves a linear and quite visible scar, in which case you should leave your hair grow a bit longer to conceal it.
