FUE Hair Restoration
The FUE Hair Restoration procedure consists of 2 parts:
1. Extraction - Removing the follicles from the donor area one by one.
2. Implantation - Inserting the follicles at the balding area one by one.
Local anesthetics are applied during extraction and implantation, thus the actual hair procedure is pain-free.
The individual follicles are extracted from the lower and middle portion of the back of the head, because that area is largely immune to DiHydroTestosterone (DHT), which is the ‘killer hair’ hormone. If needed, follicles are also extracted from the sides of the head.
The duration of an FUE procedure depends on how many follicles we need to individually implant, the easiness of the extraction and the size of the area we need to cover.
Because the follicles are extracted one by one, an FUE extraction method is a fairly long procedure. Depending on how many grafts you require to attain the desired look, the overall duration of the FUE procedure can take up to 8 hours.
Although the FUE procedure is long, it does not mean it will be boring. You can watch a movie, use your smartphone to stay in touch with friends or play games, listen to music, sleep or enjoy a conversation with your surgeon and his team. And to ensure your comfort, there are regular bathroom, food and drinks breaks.
The individual extraction method guarantees you won’t be left with linear scars or stitches. The donor area usually heals within 2-4 days after your procedure. After a period of time you will be enjoying a lifetime of amazing hair that will impress your colleagues, family members and most importantly, you.
FUE Eyebrow Hair Restoration
Eyebrows can be missing or thinning for a number of different reasons, such as over-plucking, alopecia, scars caused by facial injury or burns, or even from natural aging.
We offer a revolutionary eyebrow restoration procedure, using the FUE technique. We can help to build on a thinning or damaged eyebrow, or even create a natural-looking, realistic eyebrow for those with no hair at all.
An FUE eyebrow is a procedure, similar to a FUE scalp hair procedure that works to reconstruct your eyebrows. The process works by taking donor hair from the scalp and implanting it to the eyebrows to help achieve a fuller brow.
Donor hair is extracted from the back of the scalp, using the FUE technique, and then prepared under a microscope to extract the single follicular units.
After this, the donor hair is inserted into thinning areas in the eyebrows, or around the whole brow area to create natural-looking eyebrows.
Eyebrow hair restoration is a very delicate procedure, requiring perfect placement of the hairs into tiny incisions that are angled at just the right direction and positioned to mimic natural growth. No scalpels are needed and no stitches are required. The procedure is 100% micro-surgical. Patients will regain their natural growing eyebrows with no side effects.
Eyebrow restoration is a permanent solution for eyebrow implants, using the FUE technique, these procedures last a lifetime. There will be noticeable growth between four and six months after the surgery. You will start to see the final cosmetic results in around 10 months.
As the donor hair that is implanted into the eyebrow is from the scalp, it will grow to the full length of your head hair. Therefore, the implanted eyebrow hair must be periodically trimmed (typically once a month). This is completely standard for eyebrow implants and after some time the implanted hair can adjust and might no longer need trimming.
FUE Beard Restoration
Some men struggle to grow a beard that looks full because of bare spots and other issues. The reasons for uneven, patchy or non-existent beard growth are many – from genetics to stress to alopecia areata to hormone imbalances.
There are many methods to fix a patchy or sparsely-growing beard, including beard FUE restoration. Indeed, a beard FUE restoration procedure is similar to a hair restoration procedure on your scalp and strives to achieve the same desired effect – a full, natural-looking beard in whatever beard style a man chooses.
What is a Beard Restoration Procedure?
Beard restoration procedures have surged in popularity in recent years. Hair is taken from another part of the body and implanted into your face to create the beard style of your choosing.
How does it work?
The hair used for beard restoration most often comes from the patient's head area, under the chin. It matches the density and diameter of facial hair. If there is an insufficient supply of hair under the chin, hair is taken from the horseshoe-shaped fringe of the head as an alternative option or from the chest. Chest hair gives the beard area more density.
The surgeon must first evaluate the consistency of the hair in the recipient area with an area of the body that is a suitable donor site. The hair on the back of your head varies in its structure and diameter than pre-existing beard hair, making it harder to match it with your facial hair. To achieve a natural-looking beard density, surgeons may opt to use a high number of grafts to meet the patient's expectations.
An average of 4,000 to 7,000 hair follicle grafts are available for use in a beard restoration procedure. It is important to note that hair removed from one area may shorten the final reserves of hair follicles available for future implants.
The Beard Restoration Procedure
A beard restoration procedure involves a pretty straightforward process in which hair follicles are removed from under the chin or back of the head and then implanted into bald patches in the beard area. Facial hair restoration is not just for beards, either. Whether it is your mustache, sideburns, or goatee, this procedure will help you achieve the look that you desire.
The new facial hair grows like normal facial hair with similar texture and characteristics. You can shave the new hair as you would with any facial hair or let it grow to a length similar to the native hair follicle. Once implanted, the new hairs are extremely difficult to tell apart from your natural facial hair.
Type of Beard Restoration
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is one of the major types and most common hair restoration procedures of the facial hair. This is a technique by which surgeons remove hair from the donor area.
In an FUE facial hair restoration procedure, each hair graft is removed one by one from the donor region and harvested through small circular incisions over a larger area. FUE does NOT leave behind a linear scar as do other types of hair transplants (commonly known as FUT). FUE has a faster healing time, meaning that patients who want to return to regular physical activity can do so relatively quickly. FUE is preferred for extracting hair from donor regions in which are more susceptible to widened scars due to skin looseness. There is little or no discomfort with FUE.
