If you’re looking for a permanent solution to your hair loss, you may want to consider fue transplants. Today, it’s possible to have natural-looking results thanks to one key advance. Most surgeons now transplant healthy hairs a few at a time. Back before, sections of hair called hair plugs were placed in the thinning area.
In time, the hair plugs became quite noticeable. Improvements in creating the hairline and placing the hairs in the thinning areas also help create natural-looking results.
You can expect a hair transplant to take between four and eight hours. If you have a large amount of hair transplanted, you may need to return for a few hours the next day. Most patients remain awake during the entire surgery and need only anesthesia that makes the scalp numb. Some patients also take a mild sedative to help them relax. Depending on the number of hairs to be transplanted, two to three members of the hair transplant team may help place the healthy hairs into the area that needs hair. Once all the hairs have been transplanted, your scalp will be bandaged and you will be given instructions for at-home care.
