FUT and FUE hair transplant for men with long lasting results
Hair loss, scientifically known as alopecia, affects many men from all age categories and causes discomfort, lack of confidence and frustration. A strong and rich hair shows good genes and a healthy body and this is why many men are confronted with high confidence issues once they start losing hair.
Alopecia can now be easily treated at Renew Skin & Health Clinic. Our professional staff and our modern hair transplant procedures will restore the strength and the beautiful aspect of your hair and scalp. Our practitioners can offer you both a non-surgical and a surgical solution to your problem after analyzing your medical history and the hair loss severity.
The non-surgical hair transplant for alopecia implies the application of a thin and transparent membrane to the scalp, which is infused and covered with human hair. This procedure is performed at a follicular unit level in order to ensure maximum results and give you a natural look and hair color. This non-surgical hair transplant is especially suitable for men suffering from advanced alopecia and the results are immediate and visible.
However, if you prefer a longer-lasting result you might need to undergo a surgical hair transplant procedure. There are two types of surgical hair transplant procedures Renew Skin & Health Clinic provides you with. The first one is the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) which involves the extraction of hair from a donor area and its implant to the alopecia affected area of the patient’s scalp. The alternative to FUE is the Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) which implies strip harvesting, unlike the FUE procedure which consists in the individual harvesting of each follicular unit. This means that an entire piece of tissue containing hair grafts is surgically removed from the donor area with a scalpel and then using the modern technique of stereo-microscopic dissection, the follicular units are extracted without being damaged; the extracted grafts are then transplanted to the patient’s balding area in the same manner as with the FUE hair transplant.
Being a simpler procedure, the FUT is performed under local anesthesia in just a couple of hours and the results are excellent. Moreover, since the follicular units remain enveloped in their original skin tissue, the survival rate of each unit once transplanted to the patient increases after undergoing the FUT procedure.
As with any other surgical procedure, minimal, linear scarring occurs with the FUT, but if the patient grows his hair to a normal size, these scars will be concealed. Which is not the case with the FUE hair transplant in men as this procedure leaves no scarring whatsoever. Nevertheless, FUE takes more time to be completed. So, choosing a surgical or non-surgical hair transplant solution for alopecia is entirely up to you but it also depends on your medical history. After a specialized consultation with our hair experts from Renew Skin & Health Clinic, they will be able to recommend you the best course of action for your particular type of alopecia so that you can enjoy a radiant, youthful look and restore the rich hair you once had.
