Follicular Unit Transplant (FUE) is a hair transplant solution that can help you enjoy a more youthful look and regain confidence. Loss of hair is one of the most difficult cosmetic issues to live with, yet millions of men and women in the United States live with thinning hair and baldness every day. But hair loss does not need to define you or your aesthetic!  There is an effective hair loss solution near you in Miami.

Low confidence, as well as depression and anxiety, are common side effects of hair loss that are commonly resolved with successful hair transplant treatment, such as FUE. FUE’s hair restoration technique is a process where a patient’s hair is transplanted in naturally occurring groups of 1 to 4 hairs, called follicular units.

The result is a hair transplant solution that provides some of the best results for a full, thick head of natural-looking hair. Patients with premature baldness often report feeling much younger and more like themselves than ever before. The positive attitudes of the patients after transplantation solutions in Miami almost always lead to increased optimism in their professional and private lives.

History of FUE Hair Restoration

FUE was first described in the 1980s  in Japan, where a small 1-mm needle was introduced for extracting follicular units. Previously, procedures including removing a strip of scalp and transplanting this strip into a balding section. However, our methods today are safer, more effective, and produce better results than ever before.

Unlike solutions for hair loss in the past, follicular unit extraction generally has a quicker patient recovery time and significantly lower post-operative discomfort. Additionally, the risk of long-term nerve damage, leading to chronic numbness and/or pain in the donor area is significantly reduced with FUE.

Causes of Hair Loss

If you have ever wondered why you are losing your hair, you are not alone. Hair loss in both men and women can be caused by a variety of factors. These factors may include:

  • Family history (heredity)
  • Hormonal changes and medical conditions
  • Medications and supplements
  • Chronic Stress
  • Certain hairstyles and treatments

How Can an FUE Hair Transplant Procedure Help Me?

If you are seeking a convenient solution for hair loss in Miami, FUE may be exactly what you are looking for. Using skill, artistry, training, and years of experience, Dr. Gaines will create small incisions in your scalp where you want more hair. (The hair on the back and sides of the head are generally not as affected by hormones or genetic trends as the hair on the top of the scalp.) 

These incisions are called recipient sites and they’re carefully chosen to give you optimal results and minimize the appearance of hair loss. The individual follicular units are placed into the recipient sites in the same direction and growth pattern of your hair to ensure seamless blending. The result is rich, healthy-looking hair as well as an increased sense of confidence. Special attention is paid to the pattern, density, and thickness of each transplantation to ensure the most natural look possible

Is a Hair Transplant Permanent?

Yes. In fact, that’s the main reason why hair transplantation is considered the most effective option for restoring your hair! These transplanted hairs are resistant to the hormone that causes hair loss and are a permanent solution to hair loss.

What is the Basic Timeline of FUE?

  • A few days after the procedure, the tiny incisions left behind after the follicular units are extracted will heal completely.
  • Three months after the procedure, you should begin to notice new hair growth.
  • Six months after the procedure, you should notice significant regrowth, at which point your native and transplanted hair will continue to grow naturally
  • Confidence renewed? Instantly.

Additional Benefits of Hair Transplantation Treatments

As research continues, hair loss solutions such as FUE become more accessible, safer, and more effective than ever before. Furthermore, FUE has many positive and lasting effects outside of the aesthetic appeal.

One of the most “positive side effects” of FUE treatment is the marked improvement of forehead wrinkles in patients undergoing hair transplantation. Hair transplantation produces the effect of Botox on the forehead which in turn, leaves the patient looking younger, and feeling more vibrant and confident than ever before. 

Furthermore, patients with migraines undergoing hair transplantation solutions such as FUE often find that migraine attacks decrease markedly. Many patients may be able to discontinue medications due to the extreme reduction of symptoms. The positive side effects in association with dramatic aesthetic improvement make FUE solutions one of the most popular options for hair loss.
