FUE Hair Transplantation: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
Hair transplant surgery has evolved dramatically in the following five decades. During the evolution of hair transplant operations, techniques and techniques have been thrown away. Today, single strip excision with stereomicroscopic dissection of the excised strip is still the most common type of hair transplant surgery performed. In the last decade, however, refining an outdated bump extraction technique, now referred to as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), has become more popular and hair transplantation has never been the same.
FUE hair transplant lahore is a surgical technique that removes individual hair or follicular units “one by one” from the rear donor site. This method of hair transplantation is a minimally invasive procedure where small round bumps (1.0 mm) are used to remove the individual follicular units from the back of the scalp and then re-harvest the harvested follicular units into the scalp in the areas of the bald area implant the recipient.
FUE hair transplant requires the surgeon to possess higher skills to complete the procedure successfully, and this technique consistently delivers successful results in terms of hair density, natural looking hairline and eliminates linear donor scars. Other concerns of the patient are that it is not easy for the surgeon to perform and it requires the patient to ethically consider the alternative single-strip cutting technique due to the longer harvest time and a very short haircut that the patient needs when harvesting of grafts.
FUE hair transplantation is generally pursued for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness. This genetic hair loss condition results in balding crowns, frontal hairline and temple tips. However, the essence of good is that the benefits of Follicular Unit Extraction with a hair care unit results in a natural hairline.
The Bad & The Ugly:
Now, I’m sure you think, if this technique is so big and revolutionary, how can anyone think that FUE is a bad procedure? There are real blog sites devoted to disregarding FUE hair transplants and telling future patients to choose another surgical technique, i.e., STRIP.
Honestly, getting great results from your hair transplant operation comes down to three very important facts:
Select an Experienced Hair Transplant Surgeon
It is important to have a well-trained and experienced doctor who performs the procedure. I am sorry to report that this detail is often overlooked because patients are looking for ‘the best deal’.
Private companies that promote FUE devices are primarily interested in making a profit and not in patient safety and esthetics.
These companies may have other allied companies with which doctors may conclude an agreement. These doctors without sufficient hair transplant training are hired to non-medical operators or hair technicians to perform hair surgery from start to finish. No surgeon or doctor is involved and the outcomes can be terrible.
Some companies sell these FUE devices to plastic surgeons, dermatologists, med-spas and aesthetic skin clinics where untrained doctors use hair technicians to perform hair surgery. Unbelievable whatever it seems, without proper training and the lack of basic restorative basic restorations for hair restoration, plastic surgeons and dermatologists are working on hair transplants working with hair technicians.
When, during the hair surgery consultation, patients are asked if the surgeon is involved in the preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative phases of the operation. Patients should ask if the doctor is harvesting the grafts and creating the recipient sites needed to produce natural hairlines. Patients should also remember whether a hairdressing department offers a semi-expensive procedure at an exceptionally reduced rate, there is usually a reason, and it is not good.
The Experience of the Hair Transplant Surgeon Performing FUE
The training and experience of the hair transplant surgeon is the key to successful cosmetic results. A patient may experience a poor cosmetic result if he is not careful in selecting the well-trained surgeon to perform the FUE surgery. This is because a surgeon may have insufficient training or experience.
The following photo is of another hair surgeon who had his FUE performed by a doctor with inadequate training. You will notice in this photo that the donor site has been harvested too long and that the surgical operator (a hair technician or insufficiently trained physician) went beyond the safe donor eye area with a very large circular burst.
Daily Medical Treatment Program for Hair Stabilization
A medical stabilization program to stop or at least slow the progressive nature of hair loss is central to maintaining your hairline. This program contains Minoxidil twice a day, a DHT blocker such as Finasteride, and if funds are available with the help of laser light therapy such as the Capillus. Why would you undergo a hair transplant operation if you do not intend to stop your current and future hair loss? If the hair loss is not stopped, the patient can spend the rest of his life chasing after his receding hairline.
The hair transplant clinic helped suffering from hair loss and hair loss with both surgical and non-surgical treatment options for years.
