Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
Are you experiencing hair thinning or balding? Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a cosmetic surgical procedure that can deliver outstanding results for men and women dealing with hair loss in Reno, Nevada. Avance Hair Transplant specializes in the most advanced hair restoration techniques to help you achieve a natural-looking hairline so you can look and feel better about your appearance.
How an FUE Hair Transplant Works
During an FUE hair transplant, a surgeon makes tiny circular incisions to extract donor hair from the back of the head. Pneumatic pressure is used to suction individual follicles to increase the rate of a successful outcome for the follicular unit extraction. The follicles are placed in balding or thinning spots to produce natural-looking results. Incisions naturally heal over time without the need for sutures or stitches. This method can also be ideal for individuals who are looking for eyebrow restoration as well.
You may experience slight bruising, swelling or discoloration for a few days after the procedure. While you can resume normal activities right away, you may want to avoid sun exposure and touching the transplant area during the recovery process. Your surgeon will give you specific aftercare instructions after the cosmetic procedure, in order to achieve optimal results. The results will gradually improve over time, with full results becoming noticeable after several months.
Benefits of Follicular Unit Extraction
With a follicular unit extraction, individuals experience fewer complications with no linear scarring. There are less activity restrictions following the procedure compared to other transplant methods. Patients are able to recover faster with minimal pain and achieve permanent results.
