FUE Hair Restoration
What is FUE hair restoration?
Also known as follicular unit extraction, FUE is a minimally-invasive approach to hair transplantation. It involves removing individual hair follicles from a donor site on your scalp, and transplanting them to your thinning areas. It doesn’t require a linear scar or stiches, making it a very discreet option.
Advantages of FUE
When compared to other hair restoration techniques, FUE comes with a variety of appealing benefits for our Houston patients, including:
- Virtually no pain or discomfort after treatment
- Less invasive
- Minimal recovery period
- An extremely natural and dense final result
- The ability to harvest hair from anywhere on the body
- Return to work the very next day
- Very few activity restrictions after treatment
Hair loss is more than a cosmetic problem – it can have a profound effect on your self-esteem and quality of life. Fortunately, Dr. Sukkar provides his Houston patients with access to FUE hair restoration, a revolutionary new treatment that is proven to restore your full and luxurious head of hair.
An overview of the
Dr. Sukkar will perform your FUE hair restoration in the comfort of his Houston office. To begin, he will collect individual hair follicles from your scalp for the procedure. He’ll accomplish this by making minute circular incisions around each hair. He will then extract the graft using a tiny instrument that resembles tweezers.
Once the grafts have been collected, they will be prepared for the placement portion of the procedure. Using a powerful microscope, each follicle will be thoroughly examined to ensure it is in optimal condition. From there, the grafts will be arranged into units of one to four hairs per follicle, which is proven to produce the most natural results. To begin the placement, Dr. Sukkar will make tiny incisions in the thinning areas of your scalp. He will then transplant the prepared grafts one by one, carefully placing them to ensure a dense and natural-looking final outcome.
Once the FUE hair restoration procedure is complete, you can expect your new hair to begin to grow within approximately three months. Within six months, you’ll notice a visible improvement in your volume and density, and your hair will continue to grow in naturally until you see a full head of hair when you look in the mirror.
