HAIR TRANSPLANT NC

FUT HAIR TRANSPLANT

If you’re seeing your hairline push farther and farther back, you may be a candidate for hair transplant in NC. Those affected by hair loss can have their overall confidence and self-image affected. Once hair loss begins, its effects often progress quickly; noticeable changes can be present in only a matter of months. The FUT hair transplant procedure can increase hair density and reverse the effects of hair loss. A strip of the scalp is extracted from the back of the head where density is the thickest. This acts as the donor area from where hair follicles are then extracted and transplanted to areas of hair loss and thinning hair.

WHAT IS AN FUT HAIR TRANSPLANT?

The donor hair is retrieved from the back of the scalp. Unlike FUE Hair Restoration which transplants hairs individually from the back of the scalp, the FUT method removes a strip of tissue from the scalp to efficiently transplant donor hair to thinning areas. FUT hair restoration creates a linear scar on the back of the scalp. However, the results are natural-looking and provide a dramatic hair restoration improvement. FUT hair restoration is an excellent choice for patients who require a considerable amount of grafts.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY FUT HAIR TRANSPLANT PROCEDURE?

FUT hair transplant uses local anesthesia to numb the donor area, located in the back and sides of the scalp. A thin, rectangular section of tissue is then removed from the donor area. The amount of donor tissue removed is based on what a patient needs to restore the thinning or balding area of the scalp. For example, a patient with minimal hair loss in the hairline and frontal third might need ten square centimeters of tissue removed for the procedure, and a patient who is thinning from the hairline to the crown could need thirty square centimeters of tissue.

The individual follicular units (grafts) are then separated under microscopic magnification. The goal is to not damage any of the follicles and keep them in their naturally occurring bundles of 1, 2, 3, or 4 hairs. The less dissection of the grafts, the better the chance of graft survival.

Before transplanting grafts, the area of the scalp being restored with hair is numbed with a local anesthetic. Dr. Marko creates the recipient sites where the grafts will be transplanted by administering small slits in the scalp. This is the most skillful part of the procedure. Dr. Marko takes great pride in creating a hair pattern that will result in hair restoration that is natural and aesthetically pleasing.

The strategic placing of the grafts, at the proper angle and direction, will create a natural-looking head of hair.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY FUT HAIR TRANSPLANT PROCEDURE?

The FUT hair transplant method is a one-day procedure that allows patients to return home the same day as their surgery. Patients may experience soreness and swelling after surgery that will generally subside after a few days. Patients can return to work as early as 3-4 days after their procedure. They can also begin light exercise 1 week after their surgery, and more strenuous exercise 2 weeks out. Noticeable hair restoration often begins 3 to 6 months after surgery.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE FUT HAIR TRANSPLANT METHOD COMPARED TO THE FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT METHOD?

The FUT method uses a strip of donor tissue removed from the back of the head. FUT hair transplant is usually a quicker surgery. FUT hair restoration is typically more affordable than FUE hair restoration as well, due to its shorter surgery time. FUT is often ideal for patients experiencing a considerable amount of hair loss. There is also a higher rate of graft survival with FUT hair restoration. The hair follicles stay healthier with strip harvesting because the surrounding tissue is intact. The surrounding tissue will help hydrate the follicular units selected for hair restoration. FUT hair restoration provides natural-looking, transformational results for those suffering from hair loss.
