Framing Your Face
Are you noticing thinning of your hair? Do you have a receding hairline?
Hair loss is a very common occurrence for both men and women. It can be due to many different contributing factors like stress, age or genetics. Unfortunately, there is no medication that can completely reverse the effects of hair loss, and it often takes a toll on self-esteem and confidence. Your hair plays a significant role in framing your face, defining your physical appearance and your style. Luckily, at the Nova Medical Hair Transplant Clinic, we offer our patients a medically advanced solution to common hair loss problems. With our New Jersey hair transplant methods, you can restore your hair, regain your confidence and love how you look again.
A hair transplant is well suited to most people who are experiencing hair loss and have healthy, growing hair to transfer to the affected area. At the Nova Medical Hair Transplant Clinic, we offer Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) as effective hair restoration techniques for a hair transplant.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
FUT is also known as the “strip method” and is widely used for hair restoration. Some clients, who do not have sufficient hair at the crown or do not have sufficient density, will benefit most from this traditional technique. It allows for a high number of grafts to be implanted in one session. During the procedure, a strip of scalp is excised from the back and sides of the head. Then, it is processed into smaller, individual follicular units under the microscope before implanted into the target treatment area of the scalp. The donor area is closed with sutures or staples.
Unfortunately, there are a few drawbacks to FUT. The most notable disadvantage is the long, linear scar that results from the strip extraction. Short/buzzed hairstyles are not usually possible after FUT transplantation because the scar increases the likelihood of people noticing your hair transplant. Lastly, FUT is a relatively more invasive procedure because a scalpel is needed to remove a strip of tissue from the back of your head, so the amount of time required for recovery can take up to two weeks.
