FUT & FUE
There are two hair transplant techniques most often performed in New Jersey and New York. They’re known as FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction).
FUE, unlike FUT, does not require the removal of a small strip of scalp, but instead utilizes an automated system including a hand-held punch tool which removes micro grafts one by one from the scalp. This allows surgeons to work quickly and transfer a greater number of viable grafts in a short period. It also allows the patient to heal with no visible scarring, no stitches or incision to care for. In NYC, FUE patients can wear their hair short if they want after surgery because the tiny micro-holes left by the punch tool heal quickly and fade to small dots which blend with the scalp.
Hair transplants today are more advanced, safer and provide more flawless results than ever before, but they aren’t cheap. It is important to consider the cost versus benefit ratio. One important bonus that hair transplant patients enjoy is never having to waste money on expensive and ineffective hair supplements and topical treatments again. Hair loss medications can carry serious side effects, and hair pieces are high maintenance and cumbersome. No other solution allows you to grow your own, real hair right where you want it, permanently. When considering the financial investment of a hair transplant, the many benefits often outweigh the drawbacks.
