Hair transplant with FUE Technique
What is a FUE transplant?
A Follicular Unit Extraction is a technique in where individual hair follicles are taken out of your skin and implanted elsewhere in the body. This makes the hair in the new area grow thicker.
The (FUE) technique was meant to replace the original FUT procedure "Follicular Unit Transplantation" in which an entire piece of skin or scalp with the follicles was taken to be transplanted on another target area.
The FUE procedure has become very popular, due to the great benefits and advantages it has compared to the original FUT technique. The new surgical procedure is less likely to have a "hair plug" look, where areas of the skin or hair do not match the surrounding areas on which it is placed over and there is no scaring afterwards.
What makes the FUE technique better?
This hair restoration surgery is also an ambulatory procedure, just like many other surgical procedures offered in Baja surgery Center.
The follicular unit extraction (FUE) is done mostly under 2 to 4 hour sessions on the course of several days. Due to the short amount of time each session takes, it is not a time consuming process that will have a great effect on your daily routine.
Results are visible after 5 months, significant hair growth is appreciated after this period of time in mosts patients. The complete results will be visible after a year of the procedure.
What is the cost?
Apart from being an out patient procedure, the cost is very attractive in Baja Surgery Center. Each follicle is $2 USD and the consultation with the doctor is only $80 USD. Making it very affordable for patients looking to regain their looks and confidence.
Another factor that has to do a lot with the final cost is the amount of hair is being transplanted. Still, for many it is a very affordable-quality surgical procedure.
Areas that can be treated with the FUE treatment
Though hairs transplants are very common to be done only on the scalp area of a person. This technique can also benefit other areas of the body if the patient requires it. For example, it can be done on arms, legs, and even genital area. It all depends on what the patient wants.
Process of the Fue treatment
After a diagnosis and the surgeon approving you are a candidate you can choose a day to start your treatment. Sometimes even on the same day!
1) The area where the follicles will be extracted is shaved as well as the area of transplant.
2) With the use of a micropunch tool, the follicles are removed to be transplanted to the target area.
3) The surgeon Makes a series of tiny incisions with a needle to open the areas where the follicles previously extracted will nube inserted.
4) After the follicles are inserted the area is cleaned and bandaged for recovery.
