What Does Hair Transplant Look Like?
The leading hair transplant method, Follicular Unit Extractions or FUE has been widely known. The FUE has beaten the former hair transplant method, Follicular Unit Transplant or FUT due to several advantages. Today, the FUE hair transplant procedure can provide you a more natural look with thick and healthy new hair growth. It’s due to the fact that the surgeon in FUE implant the hair grafts with micro punches and follows the natural pattern. what does hair transplant look like ?
Hair Transplant Scarring
FUE generates minor scarring which can be healed in a shorter time and be less visible during the recovery period. Yes, there is no scarless hair transplant, it’s due to the fact that any surgical procedure will certainly leave a scar. However, FUE allows you to have a way smaller scaring so you can have a wider option of short haircuts. The surgeon individually harvests the follicular units one by one from the back or side of your scalp instead strip them off. This extraction process allows the surgeon to generate smaller scars in the donor area. This method also increases the life chance of the hair follicles.
The FUE hair transplant will take a longer time to complete compared to the FUT as the hair follicles are harvested individually by the surgeons. The is grafting is selectively conducted by the surgeon to maintain the volume balance in the donor and recipient area.
NeoGraft Hair Transplant System
Today, FUE can also be run with the support of automated technologies like NeoGraft Hair Transplant system or ARTAS robotic hair transplant system. However, NeoGraft seems to generate more damages to the hair follicles during the grafting. The use of automation system in the hair transplant procedure doesn’t mean human-free. The surgeon still plays a key role in setting the parameter and ensure the procedure is conducted well. The surgeon with ISHRS license can operate the system so they can effectively and selectively harvest the hair follicles from the donor area.
However, the use of the automated system is certainly optional as it hasn’t been proven to enhance the quality grafts and hair growth. A trained and experienced surgeon can perform FUE procedure with the same quality or even higher than the automated one. The robotic hair transplant may double the cost while it may also provide a shorter time for the procedure.
