Both men and women suffer from hair loss. There are many causes of this phenomenon: the consequences of an illness, improper diet, stress, etc. Today's advanced technology offers us a multitude of treatments. No one can challenge the fame of the FUE technique in the hair transplant. The acronym FUE correlates to "Follicular Unit Extraction". The FUE technique is one of the most effective and safest ways to combat baldness.
Description of the FUE technique
Even if this process may seem complicated at first sight, the main principle is very basic. The principle that goes into this technique is the distribution of follicular units (grafts). Once these have been extracted, the micro canals will be created in the balding area to insert the grafts.
The grafts behind and/or at the sides of the head are transplanted under local anesthesia. Once the grafts have been organized and meticulously analyzed, they will be placed in the micro canals previously opened in the balding areas.
Am I Suitable For A Hair Transplant?
For those who are genetically predisposed and who may suffer from stress, hair loss may be a problem. For most, it is a natural and unfortunately, an invetable process. Hair loss could also be caused by a variety of illnesses and conditions, such as alopecia, undergoing a chemotherapy, etc. Anyone who deals with this problem could have a hair transplant operation.
The Healing Process
Right after the operation, your head will be bandaged. There will be some swelling due to the operation which should subside in 1-3 days. You will also be given some medication that you have to take for the next couple of days. On the first or the second day after the operation, you will be brought to the hospital for the first hair wash. A special cream and a shampoo will be used during the wash. The medical team will also explain to you how perform the wash on your own.
The initial healing process takes about 3-10 days. Afterwards, most people can return to work, on the condition that it's not physically taxing. Within a month after the operation, the hair from the transplanted follicules may fall. There is no need to worry, it's a normal part of the healing process. After about a month or two, new hair will begin growing in the transplanted area. In about 6 to 12 months, you will have recovered fully and can enjoy your new hair.
