This is a great option for women who are in the advanced stages of hair loss or thinning. Keep reading to learn more about what to expect during the MUHG procedure.

Gathering Information at the Initial Consultation

Initially, you'll have a consultation with our certified hair transplant surgeon. During this first meeting, the surgeon will take the time to get to know you and your situation. You can expect to discuss various topics such as your family history, medical background, and your objectives and expectations concerning restoring a full head of hair. The surgeon will take detailed notes and inquire further as necessary to gain a thorough comprehension of your hair loss situation.

Taking Pre-Surgical Measurements

In this stage of the procedure, the hair transplant surgeon will conduct precise measurements of the hair loss area. Additionally, they will assess the donor area to gauge the potential amount of viable hair for harvesting. A tailored plan will be crafted according to your goals, preferences, and individual circumstances. Throughout this process, your hair transplant team will seek your input and secure your approval for the proposed plan.

Preparing the Donor Area

On the day of the MUHG procedure, the donor area will undergo preparation for hair harvesting. Initially, a thin strip of hair surrounding the donor region will be shaved to maintain cleanliness. Prior to the hair extraction, you will receive mild anesthesia to ensure comfort and alleviate any discomfort during the harvesting procedure.

Harvesting Donor Hair

In order to harvest the donor hair, a specific portion of tissue containing the donor hairs and follicles is extracted. Subsequently, skilled hands carefully suture the resulting open area. Fortunately, scarring is minimal, and usually, the suture site remains concealed beneath your existing hair.

Preparing the Donor Follicles

After harvesting, the donor hairs undergo a meticulous examination under a microscope. Viable single hairs, follicular units, and multiple follicular units are meticulously separated from the donor tissues. Subsequently, they are counted and meticulously organized in readiness for placement.

Creating Recipient Sites

Utilizing the harvested donor hair, your hair transplant surgeon meticulously crafts recipient sites with precision and expertise. Each site is carefully angled to achieve a natural appearance and texture, with meticulous attention to detail.

Placing the Donor Hair in the Recipient Sites

Your hair transplant surgical team will meticulously insert each individual hair graft into the designated areas. After the procedure, the surgeon will assess the placement of follicles and provide you with post-operative instructions before sending you home. The entire process typically lasts between 3 to 5 hours, after which you can relax and await the growth of your new hair. MUHG is favored for its ability to enhance density while maintaining a natural appearance and texture.
