Losing hair is traumatic. Almost 85% of men experience some amount of thinning by the time they are 50. Sadly, few women also undergo the same trauma due to genetic factors. There was a time when balding called for hats, scarves, wigs and toupees. However, thanks to the advancement of medicine and surgery, it is possible to reverse the effects of age without visible scarring.

The fundamentals of FUE hair transplant

Among all hair transplantation methods, FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is the most popular one. Men of all ages are opting for FUE hair transplant in Singapore over the last couple of years. It is the least invasive of all available procedures. It is highly precise, and it requires only light general anesthesia. However, there is a need for an expert and trained surgeon to ensure minimal scar tissue formation from the surgical procedure. The procedure requires the extraction of donor follicles from the back of the head (which is generally denser) and transplanting them on the crown or the front (which are usually sparse).

Why does the FUE transplant process require the best surgeons in the city?

The method demands a powerful 3D stereo microscope that gives the surgeon a highly magnified full field of vision. He performs the procedure with utmost precision. The process is slightly painful. There is slight scarring that fades with time. The healing time is usually low, and the probability of resulting complication is almost nil. Right now, FUE is one of the safest hair transplant processes available. However, you need to ensure that you are undergoing surgery at the right place and under the right surgeon.

Should you opt for FUE hair transplantation?

FUE is a process for people experiencing minimum balding. Those with extensive balding symptoms might need FUT or other extensive procedures to reverse the hair loss. When someone undergoes FUE transplant, the person does not run the risk of bearing a linear scar near the back of their head. There is, however, a higher risk of expanding the surface area of extraction. That may happen due to potential damage to their hair follicles the random, blind extraction method during FUE causes.

Why do people love FUE hair transplantation?

FUE hair transplant guarantees a natural looking front and back hairline. The swirl in the crown area resulting from this method of hair transplantation is virtually indistinguishable from the curl of the real hair. Moreover, the donor area does not suffer much damage, and it remains unchanged even after two weeks post-treatment. The entire procedure takes only a couple of hours, and the patient can return home the same day unless the doctors want to keep him for further observation. The final recovery from the process takes only a few days, instead of months since it is a non-invasive procedure. The use of local anesthesia (similar to dental surgery), cuts down the risk of the operation significantly. Moreover, there is no permanent trauma on the body as a result of the FUE hair transplant.

FUE has changed the way many bald men see their future. It is a non-invasive, yet viable solution to the hair loss problem that bugs a majority of the male population today.
