More About the FUE Method
A transplant that uses FUE (follicular unit extraction) involves relocating individual hair follicles using NeoGraft technology from one place to another, typically to a spot where your natural hair growth is thinning or missing. Replacing old hair follicles for new and healthy ones allows the patient to grow hair in balding areas.
Unlike the traditional FUT (follicular unit transplantation) technique, which uses a piece of skin or scalp along with the follicles to transplant, FUE leaves virtually no evidence that the procedure took place and offers natural-looking results. Because of this, it is less invasive, does not leave large scars, and has a quicker recovery rate.
Since the hair will need to be short to be grafted effectively, the patient will be given instructions on cutting their hair before the FUE transplant.
The procedure is performed with local anesthesia and typically lasts about 2-4 hours per session over several days. There are also cases where a longer session may last 8-12 hours. During these long periods, our team will take steps to ensure the patient will be as comfortable as possible.
FUE requires no incisions and sutures, though the possible side effects include discomfort, swelling, bruising, sensitivity, and scabbing at the extraction sites. These symptoms are usually mild and subside after a few days. While most patients can return to their normal daily activities within 48 hours, they must avoid immersing the treated area in water or doing any strenuous exercise for a week.
With FUE, the hair transplanted into the new area starts growing back in three to four months. It becomes more visible and thicker as early as six months, with continued growth over time.
The cost of an FUE transplant in Los Angeles can vary, depending on the amount of hair to be transplanted.
With the right provider and proper aftercare, it can last a lifetime.
In general, the success rate of any hair restoration treatment is based on several factors, such as the patient’s overall health and the severity of the hair loss. Compared to other hair graft techniques, FUE boasts a higher success rate of between 90-100%.
One of the individual factors that has a significant impact on the procedure’s success rate is the surgeon’s experience. You will want to consult a surgeon with a careful eye, success records, and skills for an ideal, long-lasting outcome. At Burbank Plastic Surgery, you can rest assured that you will be in excellent hands.
