How New Hair Graft Works
The New Hair Graft technique is based onFollicular Unit Extraction (FUE), an advanced approach used to acquire the donor hair for a hair transplant procedure. During a follicular unit extraction, a small punch is used to make a small, circular incision in the skin surrounding the donor follicular unit. Unlike strip harvesting where an entire strip is removed from the head with a scalpel and then dissected into smaller units for application, the donor follicular unit is extracted directly from the scalp and immediately transplanted to the recipient site. Not only does the follicular unit graft produce the same natural results as with strip harvesting, the scarring is not as noticeable than the linear scarring caused by strip excision.The creation of the FUE technique was motivated by the need to eliminate the noticeable scarring caused from strip harvesting . FUE is also the least invasive hair transplantation procedure available.
If hair transplants are so natural looking now, why doesnt everyone get them?
There are many reasons people experiencing hair loss do not undergo hair transplant surgery. For one, the general population is largely unaware of the advancements in the field of hair restoration and do not realize the coverage and natural appearance possible.
Another reason is that many people are not great candidates for the procedure. This may be due to several factors including extensive loss, not enough loss, and even unrealistic expectations
FUE is less invasive than strip harvesting. In fact, patients report minimal discomfort, have less bleeding and are subject to less complications.It is considered a minor procedure requiring only local anesthesia.
One reason some patients choose FUE over strip harvesting is to allow themselves the option to wear shorter hair. The linear scar produced from strip harvesting would be visible on a scalp with very short hair. Usually, it is the younger patients who consider this to be a determining issue.
For those who frequently participate in strenuous activities or contact sports and cannot afford downtime, FUE may be a better choice. Unlike a strip excision that can take anywhere from weeks to months to regain full strength, the strength of the donor area in an FUE is never weakened. In fact, many patients return to work the next day!
FUE can also be a great alternative to those who cannot undergo strip excision due to a tight scalp. On the other hand, patients with a tight scalp at the donor area often have less donor hair to spare. This is because a tighter scalp can restrict the stimulation needed for ample hair growth.
Unlike a strip excision, an FUE can utilize hair from all areas of the body and is not limited to the scalp. It is important to keep in mind, however, that non-scalp hair may not match very well.
