Medical Advancements in FUE
Top Choice for Permanent Hair Restoration
There have been dramatic evolutions in the hair transplant industry in recent years. Top of the list in medical advancements is FUE. In NJ, it is the top choice for permanent hair restoration and it only stands to grow in popularity as more people learn what it can do for them.
Both men and women suffer from hair loss, with an estimated 2/3 of all men and up to ½ of women reporting hair thinning and balding by the age of 50. Many people would inevitably accept this natural process in the past because the prospect of hair surgery was invasive and not appealing. Learn how technology has advanced and why FUE has changed the game for so many.
How Does It Work?
FUE stands for follicular unit extraction. As you research your options, you’ll see various terms for surgical hair procedures such as FUT, or, strip surgery, but FUE is the most modern and least invasive technique. Strip transplant surgery involves surgical excision of a strip of scalp at the back of the head. The scalp is then dissected into multiple small grafts under a microscope. Though this traditional hair transplant method is used today in NJ, FUE doesn’t require removing a strip of scalp or leaving a long, tell tale surgical scar. For men in particular, the ability to reallocate hairs on their head without obvious signs of surgery means the freedom of wearing their hair short.
FUE is designed to extract and reinsert hairs using only tiny, pinprick incisions that heal with nearly no trace. Think of it as spreading out the hair you have on your head, from one, denser area, to other, thinner, areas. When you take donor hair follicle grafts just one at a time, the donor site is not obvious, and density of hairs remains sufficient. It’s as if you are multiplying the hair you have for more coverage.
