NJ Hair Transplant Consultation
It’s not unusual to spend months researching your hair restoration options before making a plan to proceed. One of the crucial first steps on your journey will be to meet with a hair transplant surgeon in person for a consultation. This is the stage where your hair density, donor hair availability and your whole medical picture are discussed in detail. When your surgeon has a clearer picture of your hair loss progression and your goals, they’ll be able to advise you about specific graft numbers.
The transplant is usually a one-time procedure, but not all procedures or patients are alike. Here are a few factors to consider:
Which Transplant Technique Will You Use?
The strip method (FUT) utilizes an excised strip of scalp from the back of the head to dissect multiple grafts, then transplant them.
The second technique which has become more common today is called FUE. Hair grafts are individually punched with a tiny, rotary device and removed manually or with pneumatic pressure.
The number of grafts you need and the method you choose will affect your decision to have an additional session at a later time. That’s because high volumes using 2500+ grafts are possible using FUT but less likely with FUE. If you have severe balding and want the FUE method and avoid a linear scar, you may have to complete your transformation in two separate sessions.
When hair loss is in the beginning stage, fewer grafts are required than for a person whose crown is completely bald.
