Advice on FUE Hair Transplants

POSTED: 05 August 2013

If you’re considering getting some FUE hair transplants, it’s helpful to know what to expect from these before you get the procedure done.  Getting hair transplants is a big decision that should not be taken lightly, so having the facts in place before you go for the process will serve you very well.
Let’s go over what you need to know so that you can make an informed and confident decision.


What FUE Hair Transplants Are


FUE hair transplants is a process that involves removing some of the healthy hair follicles that are currently on your head and then transplanting them individually to the areas of your head that are currently without hair.
In most cases, the transplanted hair will go into the same slot that the former hair follicles were in to keep the look as natural as possible.  This also helps to increase the chances that the hair stays transplanted permanently so you never have to worry about going bald again – or at least drastically reduce the amount of hair loss you are currently faced with.
Using FUE hair transplants tends to be a less painful procedure compared to former transplant methods and in addition to that, it also produces more natural looking results.
This is a big reason why it’s a far more attractive option for most people considering the process.
Downtime is also less lengthy with the average requirement being around four to five days.


Questions To Consider Beforehand


Before having the transplant done, it’s helpful to consider whether your hair loss has remained stationary for quite some time, meaning no further loss is taking place.
If you are in the initial stage of hair loss and it’s still happening quite readily, you may find that you will require more treatments later on as continued hair loss takes place.
If it has held constant for a while however and no further hair loss seems to be taking place, then there is a greater chance that you may only need one treatment to keep the results in place.


What To Expect


If you decide to go ahead and have the transplant done, you may wonder what you should be expecting. In most cases, the transplant isn’t going to hurt at all and once you receive the aesthetics, you’ll be in complete conform the entire time the process is occurring.
Nearly everyone is a suitable candidate to have this process done, so the great news is there are no specific pre-qualifiers that must be in place.
The process also leaves hardly any visible scaring at all, so once it’s completed, you shouldn’t be able to notice that you have had the hair transplant done. Again the FUE transplants are the most natural looking transplant process available, which is the biggest reason why so many people will choose to go this route.
So if you’re tired of dealing with balding, this is definitely a process you will want to be looking into and considering.
