If you are interested in exploring the possibility of a hair transplant, there are certain pieces of information you will need to have before making your final decision. Scheduling a consultation with your chosen surgeon will be essential, as he or she will be able to answer any and all questions.
The type of surgery you have will be one of the first things you need to decide on. Most surgeons typically go with one of two options, either Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). These are the most advanced hair transplant procedures currently offered.
So what, exactly, happens during an FUE surgery? Hair follicles are extracted one at a time, unlike an FUT surgery, where entire strips of scalp are taken and removed at a single time. The tiny incisions in an FUE procedure leave no scar, as the follicles that are taken are less than one millimeter in total diameter.
One of the most desirable aspects of an FUE surgery is how quickly patients tend to recover. While there is generally some slight discomfort in the hours and first couple of days following the procedure, those who undergo this surgery are back to their daily routines within just a few days. This is a much shorter recovery time than other kinds of surgeries and medical procedures.
