It is also important to note that uneven or early loss of hair is not a pattern exclusive to men alone, women to tend to experience baldness.

But, considering the incidence and prevalence, male pattern gets more focus and attention and the reasons are pretty obvious. Hair Transplant as a premium therapy option becomes inevitable at some point of time, especially of the objective is to achieve moderate to complete restoration. It doesn’t have to be specially mentioned that transplant therapy is the only effective option for hair restoration, going by the science of cosmetology.

There are few alternatives when it comes to preventive purposes, many times timely intervention works when it comes to preventing a complex situation. Cosmetic solutions are well classified in terms of preventive and restorative purposes. Your passion to get back to your younger days of healthy scalp and hair can be brought to life through our advanced transplant treatment solutions in Manchester.

What is unique about FUE Hair Transplant procedure?

FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction and the transplant procedure associated with the extraction and harvest of individual follicular units is generally referred as FUE Hair Transplant. In most of the cases, it is the rejuvenation or restoration of the head scalp’s potential that is targeted through a transplant surgery or therapy. However, in the recent times, facial hair restoration is gaining more popularity with men are giving into exploring cosmetic methods to achieve desired growth of beard and moustaches.

FUE is one of the two popular methods when it comes to cosmetic intervention focused on re-growth of hair. The other procedure is FUT transplant which is also quite appropriate in the process of scalp rejuvenation.

The whole process or cycle of achieving restoration or arresting further hair loss revolves around the logic of follicular health and wellness. The hair follicles that originate from deep within the scalp region are ultimately responsible for the generation, growth and sustenance of each of the hair strands. When disproportionate loss of hair happens which is indeed a precursor to baldness, typically the functioning of these follicles must have been adversely affected. In most of the cases, they become redundant and even non-functional.

FUE Hair Transplant would ultimately aim at improving the presence and sustenance of healthy follicles in the scalp region. As part of the procedure, the transplant experts will first harvest follicles from the healthy regions of the scalp and other hair growing parts of the body like chest. The same will be strategically planted in the deficient regions of the scalp where the hair growth is either abnormal or suspended. Once the grafting is complete and transplant procedure is declared to be successful, patients will start experiencing positive results and it may take few weeks time to recognise the new growth pattern.

As a lifestyle and personality enthusiast, you would pretty well know how important to get everything right when you invest in something like a transplant procedure.

Talk to the experts at our Manchester clinic for personalised advice and suggestions.

Recovery

As with all cosmetic procedures, there are recovery and aftercare plans that will be recommended to you by our surgeons. It is important that you follow any instructions given, as each individual varies from case to case.

Whilst pain should not be felt during your hair transplant, you may experience pain or discomfort afterwards once the local anaesthetic wears off. This is entirely normal.

Often, special lotion or spray is provided to patients to use regularly at home.

Some local anaesthetics or sedatives can take up to 1 full day to wear off, so it is important to be accompanied by a companion who can transport you home following your treatment.

The average time that patients return to work following hair transplants is 3-5 days.

FUT procedures are known for being less noticeable and require less recovery time than FUE.

Following your surgery, it is important that you are careful with the hair that has been transplanted for up to 2 weeks. This is due to the fact that fresh hair grafts are not entirely secure until the core healing process is complete. Being careful includes washing and brushing routines.

However, after 2 weeks has passed, normal hair care can be resumed as long as you do not exercise too much or sweat excessively. In some cases, strenuous exercise within the first month can increase the chance of scarring. So it is advised to keep this to a minimum.

Post Surgery Care

1. Following a hair transplant, bandages will be applied to the affected area. These can be removed after a couple of days and hair can be washed very gently if necessary.

2. If surgery requires non-dissolvable stitches, these will be removed after 7 days.

3. In the first 2-4 weeks after your procedure, it is common for the transplanted hair to fall out. This is nothing to worry about and it will later start to grow back. However, if you are concerned about this you can speak to your aftercare professional for advice.

4. Any hair that falls out in the early weeks post surgery will start to appear in around 6 to 8 weeks.

5. Patients can expect to see the full results and effect of their surgery after one to one and a half years.

Complications

With cosmetic surgery, there are often side effects and in some cases complications depending on your treatment and circumstances. Your surgeon will discuss in detail what to expect during and after your transplant.

Hair transplantation is considered a safe procedure in most cases.

It is common to feel as if the scalp is swollen following your surgery, along with a tightness and aching feeling.

Any scabbing that you experience where a hair transplant has taken place will be temporary and nothing alarming.

Patients should expect to see some scarring on the head, which will fade and be less noticeable the longer your hair is.

Other complications can include; infections, bleeding excessively and allergic reactions to anaesthetics. If you experience any of these it is important to speak to one of our professionals for treatment.

During your consultation pre-surgery, you will also be made aware of any bigger complications that can occur. One of these is that the transplant won’t take and the hairs fall out.

Another issue that is considered a complication is that if the reason for hair transplant is male pattern baldness, hair may continue to thin or bald in the region around the transplant. This means that the transplant will remain hairy, but other parts will recede.

Careful planning and expert advice can help minimise the risk of this happening.
