Are you experiencing thinning hair at the front of your head or a receding hairline that’s affecting your self-esteem and appearance? Follicular unit extraction (FUE) frontal hair transplant in New Jersey is a procedure that can restore your hair and your confidence.
To qualify for FUE hair restoration, you need to have hair nearby on the sides or back of your head to use for the transplant. In some cases, body hair may be used. Here’s what you can expect during a FUE hair transplant.
The Specifics of the FUE Procedure
FUE is a type of hair transplant that takes hair follicles from one area and transplants them inthe area where you need hair or want to thicken your existing hair.
Unlike old procedures that require an entire piece of your scalp to be removed and transplanted, resulting in painful scarring and a marred aesthetic, the FUE method only targets your hair follicles. Scarring and discomfort are minimized with the FUE procedure.
The FUE procedure is a popular option thanks to the natural results. Your extracted hair follicles aren’t overly obvious, and the transplanted follicles aren’t overly noticeable.
How the Procedure is Performed
Your FUE hair transplant is usually completed over 2 to 4 hour sessions. These sessions are performed over several days. It is possible to do a single session that lasts 10 to 12 hours.
During each session, your surgeon shaves the hair in the areas where your follicles will be removed. They use a micropunch tool to remove the follicles.
After making tiny incisions, the hair follicles are inserted where you want to grow new hair. Your surgeon then cleans and bandages the area.
The FUE hair loss treatment is an outpatient treatment, so you can go home after each session. You can resume most of your normal activities, but you’ll want to avoid submerging the treatment site in water or engaging in vigorous activity for a week after the procedure.
Your transplanted hair will begin growing within 3 to 4 months; up to 80 percent of the transplanted hair will grow back.
Side Effects Associated with FUE Hair Loss Treatment in New Jersey
The FUE hair transplant is a safe procedure for restoring thinning or balding hair with minimal side effects.
Tiny white scars can develop where your follicles are extracted, but this is unlikely and if they were to develop, they can only be seen upon close examination of the scalp. You’re most likely to experience temporary side effects, such as sensitivity, swelling, or bruising. These side effects usually only last a few days.
