FUE Hair Transplantation

Hair Transplant

A hair transplant is a process used to treat hair loss. Male baldness (also known as androgenetic alopecia), a form of hair loss, may occur due to scalp inflammation or damage to the scalp. Injuries due to burning, surgery or accidents may lead to permanent hair loss that can be hided with a hair transplant.

Hair transplantation is no treatment for male baldness. Even though the process covers the baldhead with hair, it does not protect you from further hair loss. Since male baldness is progressive in most men, it may be advantageous to combine surgical treatment with medical treatments to slow down the hair loss.

FUE Hair Transplantation

With the FUE-technique, every single hair follicle is collected separately from the scalp, without removing any tissue. After the follicles are removed, small holes are opened in the donor area, in which the follicles are planted. As with FUE hair transplantation it is possible to determine the direction of hair growth, the healing is much shorter.

After a Hair Transplant

It is possible to experience the following conditions after hair transplantation:

Bruising and swelling

Numbness

Pain, throbbing and discomfort

Formation of small crusts in the treated areas of the scalp

Hair transplant complications

All surgeries carry a degree of risk. Some of the possible complications of hair transplant surgery are:

General anesthesia risks including fatal allergic reaction

Surgical risks such as bleeding or infection

Nerve damage including permanent sensory loss

Death of skin grafts

Tissue death in the wound area
