Hair transplantation is often defined as ‘ the permanent solution for hair loss ‘. A hair transplant operation is the process of transplanting hair. Hair follicles are taken from the back of the head where you have hair-to the more bare areas of the head.
How does hair transplant work?
hair transplant is an effective and permanent solution for people who have male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia). Female hair loss can be more complicated and often depends on several different causes.
Hair transplants are also used by people affected by scarS or have lost hair due to various types of hair disorders.
What method are most common?
FUE is the most common method in Europe, while in the United States it is still most common with FUT (also called the Strip method). FUE takes about 5-10 hours depending on how much hair follicles need to be transplanted and has become more common as a treatment for hair loss.
There are also variants of the FUE such as Robot FUE, the DHI technology that uses an implanter and Saphire FUE where the doctor uses a different type of blade.
What is FUE
With FUE the surgeon takes out individual hair follicles from the donor area. Usually you take hair follicles from the back of the head and place them where they are best needed. It is possible to move on a high hairline or place hair follicles into bare areas on the head.
Usually you transplant hair to the bays, neck and hairline, but you can also place hair follicles in other areas such as eyebrows and beard.
Does it hurt?
There are no methods that are completely painless but FUE is the mildest method of non-invasive method which we recommend. Local anesthesia is used in the relevant areas. There are needle-free injectors that almost do not cause any pain.
