Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a minimally invasive hair restoration procedure that moves the patient's own hair graft by graft to maximize the likelihood of regrowth after it has been transplanted in the balding area. This procedure involves moving the entire follicle, including the bulb, dermal papillae, capsule and outer root sheath, with special micro-instruments in order to prevent damage and maintain the health of the hair for optimum results.
FUE offers many benefits over traditional hair transplant procedures, including:
- Minimal scarring - Scarring after the FUE procedure is so minimal that many patients are able to cut their hair very short afterwards with no visible signs of treatment in the donor area.
- Quick return to work - There is virtually no downtime associated with this procedure. Patients can return to work and other activities as soon as they feel comfortable, which is often the same day as their procedure.
- Minimal Discomfort - For most patients, there is little to no pain associated with this procedure. As soon as the very next day, patients feel just the same as they did before their procedure.
FUT performed by Dr. Bishara is a method of hair restoration surgery in which hair is transplanted only as natural, individual follicular units. This ensures that patients will achieve the most natural results and also allows Dr. Bishara to transplant the maximum amount of hair into a small area. These follicular units consist of up to four individual hairs in each follicle.
During the FUT procedure, the hair is trimmed short and then the scalp is numbed with a local anesthetic before being removed through a vibration distraction technique. The removed follicles are then stripped to their most natural state and then placed in the recipient area. Sutures are placed in the donor area, which are usually hidden by the patient's hair. The healing process begins immediately after the procedure, and patients are usually able to resume normal hair care after a week. Hair growth typically begins about three months after the FUT procedure.
Temporal Peaks Restoration restores a natural and youthful hairline by recreating the temporal peaks, the areas at the front of the head that are common sites of hair loss. Many people become especially self-conscious about hair loss in this area because of its prominent location. The temporal peaks help frame the face and define a person's appearance.
Restoration of hair in this area includes transplantation with proper placement to recreate a natural hairline and restore the patient's original appearance.
Total Crown Renewal® is the only procedure that effectively treats the entire top and back of the scalp by redistributing 12,000-15,000 hairs over the balding area. This creates a natural appearance even when treating large areas of baldness on the front, top and crown of the head.
This procedure is performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Patients usually experience little to no discomfort during this procedure, and can return to their regular activities after three days.
