Hair Transplant Follicular Unit Extraction
When you browse around the hair transplant options, most of the top hair clinics will recommend hair transplant follicular unit extraction for your hair restoration. Besides the FUE (follicular unit extraction), you will also hear about the FUT (follicular unit transplantation). With the hair transplant follicular unit extraction method, the follicular units will be harvested by the surgeons, and they will transplant to the areas of the scalp that has no hair or thinning. The big difference between the FUE and FUT is simple. In FUE, the surgeons will extract the follicular units individually. In the FUT, the surgeons will remove a strip of tissue. You will want to make the right decision about the type of the hair transplant surgery you are undergoing.
There have been reasons why many hair clinics would recommend hair transplant follicular unit extraction for you. FUE – Follicular Unit Extraction is also known as the follicular transfer. It is a less-invasive hair transplant surgery compared to FUT because your surgeons will only make a small circular incision. Not to mention that the hair transplant with FUE technique only spends around four to six hour to finish. Moreover, you will be released from the hair clinic the same day of the surgery. The hair transplant follicular unit extraction helps the patients to minimize the scarring and recovery issues. It is more successful than other hair transplant technique.
Follicular Unit Extraction (Fue) Hair Transplant
One of the pros of hair transplant follicular unit extraction is less scarring. With the FUE there will be no linear scar in the donor area. So, others won’t notice that you’ve undergone the hair transplant surgery. As mentioned, it is less invasive because your surgeon won’t use any scalpels, staples, or sutures. Because it is less invasive, the patients who underwent hair transplant follicular unit extraction will also heal quickly. Quickly treating is the pivotal perk for modern people because everyone wants to get back to work as soon they are released from the hospital. You will want to get back to your activities as well. Because of the less invasive surgery, the risks of bleeding or swelling are minimal. That will make you heal quicker.
The hair transplant follicular unit extraction also boasts more natural recovery. The post-procedure is a lot easier than other types of hair transplant surgery. The small holes are easy to close. For that reason, your recovery rate is much faster. Perhaps the only downside is that it does not come cheap. However, still, if you are letting Dry Hair Clinic handle it for you, you will get the best prices.
