Thinning hair and hair loss are common issues experienced by men and women of all ages. Fortunately, today, hair loss solutions are available for any type of hair loss at any stage.
There are many types of hair loss, and while some are temporary conditions, others can lead to permanent hair loss. As a result, surgical hair replacement is an increasingly popular solution for many men and women.
What Is Surgical Hair Replacement?
Surgical hair replacement, also known as a hair transplant, is a procedure where hair is removed from one part of the scalp and transplanted into another. Surgical hair replacement is a low-maintenance permanent hair loss solution that doesn't require substantial follow-up or specific hair care.
The surgery begins with the removal of healthy hairs from your scalp. Follicular Unit Grafting, or FUG, involves the removal of a small strip of skin with healthy hair from the back or side of the head. Technicians then separate the strip into individual hairs that are inserted into small incisions in the scalp. Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, uses a technique where the surgeon removes individual hair follicles from the donor region rather than removing a strip of skin.
Depending on the number of hairs being transplanted, the procedure will take several hours, and several members of the hair transplant team may help place healthy hairs into the transplant area. FUG and FUE are both permanent hair loss solutions that can help you achieve fullness, coverage, and a natural head of growing hair.
Who Are the Best Candidates for Surgical Hair Replacement?
The ideal candidate for hair replacement surgery needs enough healthy hair on their scalp that can be transplanted to the area that needs hair and the ability to grow hair on the thinning area of the scalp. Men and women with thinning hair, well-defined baldness, or limited hair loss due to scalp injuries or surgery are good candidates for surgical hair replacement.
Good candidates for surgical hair replacement include:
- Men or women with well-defined male pattern baldness or female pattern baldness.
- People with hair loss from scarring, scalp injuries, or cosmetic surgery procedures.
- People who want to restore or thicken eyebrows, mustaches, or beards.
- People who had prior hair restoration procedures.
