- Hair transplant
A lot of people are opting for a hair transplant these days. Due to the fact that it is the only for sure thing that’s out there, or at least for now. Natural remedies and medicine doesn’t exactly have the same effect as hair transplant. So, let’s go over that FUE is.
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplants are done by taking individual hair follicles out of your skin and implanting them elsewhere on your body. This will make the hair in the new area look thicker. FUE was meant to replace the “classic” follicular unit transplantation (FUT) technique. This procedure was done by taking an entire piece of skin or scalp along with the follicles and transplanting the skin on the target area. Maxwell Hair Clinic in Seoul offers both of these procedures but I would recommend FUE as it won’t leave a major scar.
FUE has become more popular than FUT because it’s less likely to lead to a “hair plug” look, where sections of skin or hair don’t match the surrounding areas. It also won’t leave a large scar like FUT does. The best candidate for a FUE hair transplant is someone with thinning hair or balding who still has enough hair nearby to use for a transplant. You may not be eligible for a FUE hair transplant if you don’t have enough healthy thick hair to transplant to the thinning or balding area.
How does a FUE hair transplant work?
As you get older, regrowth of your hair shortens until follicles no longer regrow hairs. This process is different for everyone. Some people start balding in their 20s, while others bald much later in life. Your genes seem to play a major role as to when you start going bald. FUE hair transplants restore hair by replacing these old follicles with new follicles that are still able to grow hair. After the transplant, the follicles will be nourished by blood vessels and begin growing hair in the area that previously had thin hair or balding.
Are there any side effects?
FUE hair transplant is relatively a safe procedure for most people but there’s nothing wrong with being little cautious about know possible side effects. You won’t experience any scars from a FUE hair transplant other than tiny white dots where follicles were taken out. These may fade over time. However, after the surgery, you might experience pain or swelling around the surgery part where hair follicles were extracted and implemented. You also might feel numb or tingle near the surgery site. Scalp around the surgery site may bleed a little after the surgery. Most of these side effects go away so side effects aren’t a major issue in case of FUE procedure.
