HAIR RESTORATION TREATMENT
& FUE HAIR TRANSPLANTS
Hair restoration surgery has become very popular in recent years, partly driven by improvements in outcomes and partly because of increased awareness about the safety of the surgery. There are a lot of options available for the consumer looking for hair restoration surgery. Though this might sound like a win-win scenario, we are getting to see a lot of very poorly planned surgeries and also poor outcomes. I have battled with hair loss and poor hair restoration surgery for 17 years. For the first time in 17 years, I am extremely happy with the state of my hair.
Hair Restoration Treatment & FUE Hair Transplants
Hair restoration surgery has become very popular in recent years, partly driven by improvements in outcomes and partly by increased awareness of the safety of the surgery.
However, not all hair restoration surgeries will produce natural-looking, dense hair. There are a variety of reasons for this: the surgeon’s skill, the team’s attention to detail, the degree of patient-specific customisation, and a range of other variables have a role to play.
How does FUE work?
FUE stands for Follicle Unit Extraction. In this process, hair follicles are extracted from the back of the scalp individually from the permanent zone. It has numerous advantages over FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation), otherwise known as strip surgery.
FUE has undergone a huge transformation from the days it was first presented as a possible addition to strip surgery (FUT) almost 20 years ago.
Over the last 10 years, FUE has rapidly advanced technologically and has garnered wide acceptance. When performed by a reputable and experienced surgeon, FUE can yield exceptional results with minimal discomfort and downtime.
The importance of picking the right surgeon
Picking the right surgeon is of paramount importance. Hair restoration is a unique surgery because a very limited number of hair follicles are available for use to give an illusion of natural hair.
Thus, the surgeon needs to take extreme care to preserve the donor hair. A poorly planned surgery can cause more harm than good, destroying existing hair in addition to providing poor return on investment. And so, it is of absolute importance to meet the surgeon and explore all available options before going for surgery.
Hair restoration is more than just a science. The team needs to create age-specific and face-specific hairlines and density customised to the patient for it to look natural. Beyond speed and efficiency, attention to detail and a commitment to creating near perfect outcomes is a must.
As a team, more than 40% of our work is repair and correction work. Most patients not only want a decent head of hair, but they also want their hair to look and feel natural.
To that end, we believe that hair restoration surgery is a bit like fine watch-making. One could assemble a functional watch that tells the time, or one could invest attention, expertise, and care to create a masterpiece that clients can enjoy for a very long time.
