f you are considering a hair transplant, it is important to know what the process entails. There are many different techniques used for hair transplants. These include FUT (follicular unit transplantation), FUE (follicular unit extraction), and HT (hair transplant). In this article, we will focus on follicular unit extraction using the new ARTAS Robotic system.
What is FUE Hair Transplantation?
FUE stands for follicular unit extraction. It is a surgical method used to restore hair loss in men and women.
The FUE technique involves the removal of individual hairs from the back of the scalp, which is a large donor area where there are hundreds of thousands of hair follicles that can be harvested one by one. This means that your natural hair will continue to grow in its usual way, with no interference or scarring at all once they have been transplanted into your balding area or other affected areas of your scalp.
Hair Transplant Holes
Hair transplantation is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a hand-held instrument to extract follicular units from the donor area. The process is performed under local anesthesia and leaves the donor area with small holes that heal quickly.
The process is performed in two stages: harvesting and implanting. The harvesting stage removes a strip of skin from the back of the head, which contains thousands of hair follicles. This is done using a hand-held device that punches through the scalp with small blades.
What Are The Benefits Of Using FUE Hair Transplants?
FUE hair transplant is an alternative to traditional Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT), which involves removing a strip of hair from the back of your head and then stitching it back together.
FUE hair transplants have many benefits over conventional methods:
- More natural-looking results
- Less invasive and painful procedure
- Faster recovery time
- Lower cost than traditional methods
How To Care For Your Scalp After Surgery.
After your surgery, you should take care of your scalp as follows:
- Wash the area gently with warm water and mild soap a few times a day. Do not scrub or rub too vigorously. If there is any bleeding, stop washing the area and call our office immediately.
- Dry the scalp with a towel and apply a moisturizer to help keep it hydrated until new hair growth begins about 3-4 weeks after surgery (this will depend on how much hair you have lost). Avoid scratching or picking at any scabs that may form on your scalp; this can cause scarring which may be permanent if left untreated properly!
- Sleeping on one’s back for two weeks after surgery will help prevent further trauma to newly transplanted hairs due to gravity pulling them down towards their original position in which they were before they were transplanted into their new location underneath one’s skin tissue layer from where they came out from originally; therefore if someone sleeps on their back during those first couple weeks post-surgery instead -then all goes well.
How Long Does It Take To Recover From FUE Hair Transplantation?
2-3 weeks is the normal healing time, but it can vary from person to person. Most people can go back to work within a few days, and you should be able to wash your hair after two days. You can exercise after about two weeks.
How Does The Process Work?
FUE hair transplant surgery is performed under local anesthesia. The patient’s head is shaved, and the follicular units are extracted from the donor site. The grafts are then transplanted to the bald or thinning areas of the scalp.
The extraction process only takes about one hour per square inch of baldness, but it can take up to six hours for someone who has a full head of hair and wants to restore their hairline in its entirety with FUE grafts.
You don’t have to worry about hair transplant holes and scars.
If you are considering hair transplantation, the first thing to keep in mind is that there’s no need to worry about the look of your scars. Hair transplants can be done using a technique called FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) or FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation).
In both cases, the end result is that after the procedure, you will have very little evidence of how it was performed. There should be no visible scarring left behind by either method — just a few small scabs which should heal easily and leave no permanent mark.
You can be assured that the hair transplant holes and scars are not as big of a deal as you think. It might take some time to heal, but it will not affect your life in any way!
