Stop Balding With an FUE Hair Transplant

July 23, 2021

Are You Finally Ready to Stop Balding?

Feeling overwhelmed by hair loss and hair thinning? Stop balding with an FUE hair transplant. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a permanent solution to stop balding in its tracks. Let’s learn more about what you can expect from an FUE hair transplant and whether this treatment is a good fit for you.

FUE is a type of hair transplant surgery that is performed by removing individual hair follicles from your scalp and transplanting them in the area where you are experiencing balding or thinning hair. Surgeons leave behind the most minuscule of scars that are barely visible, and easily hidden by one’s hair. 

FUE is an outpatient procedure, so you can go home the same day as your treatment. A local anesthetic is injected into the scalp and the surgery is performed while you are awake. FUE procedures can last as long as 12 hours, depending on the number of grafts that are being harvested and the size of the area that are being transplanted. The follicular grafts are most often harvested from the back of the head where hair tends to be the thickest. 

FUE hair transplants are considered safe and most side effects are minor, such as tiny white scars resulting from the follicle extractions. In extremely rare instances serious side effects such as infection and tissue death can occur. This is more likely to occur if you choose a disreputable practitioner, or if proper hygiene is neglected post surgery. If you work with a skilled surgeon and follow the post-operative care instructions your transplant should heal beautifully within 2-3 weeks.

After your FUE Hair Transplant Procedure 

In the initial weeks following your FUE surgery, it is normal to experience some redness, swelling and scabbing at both the donor site and the transplanted area. During this time it is important to refrain from wearing hats, getting haircuts, or resuming your regular hair product routine. Vigorous exercise, wearing helmets, or swimming in swimming pools should also be avoided during this time. We generally recommend that our patients plan to take two weeks off of work after their FUE transplants if they are concerned about their professional appearance. Your doctor will schedule a post-surgery evaluation to assess the success of your FUE before clearing you to resume your normal routine. 

It takes some time for the transplanted hair follicles to become established and grow. It is normal to experience shock loss at 2-3 months post-procedure. Do not be alarmed when your transplanted hair falls out. This is a natural part of the hair regrowth process. The old hair must be shed to make way for the new hairs that are emerging from under the scalp. In approximately 9 months’ time, your new hair will have filled in nicely. 

Depending on the severity of your hair loss, you and your doctor may opt to undergo additional FUE treatments in another 6-12 months in order to give your transplanted hair the full appearance you desire. Logistically speaking there is a limit to how many hairs can be transplanted in one session. If you require a large number of grafts that may require multiple transplants. This can be a way to stretch your budget as well.
