Healthcare practitioners widely agree that it is not uncommon for men and women to lose up to 100 hairs a day but what happens to those that lose more than that? They are often left with three choices. The first choice is to suffer in silence and try to hide their hair loss. The second choice is to try do-it-yourself home remedies, which rarely work. The third and best option is to seek professional help from someone that specializes in FUE hair restoration.
FUE hair restoration is often used when all non-invasive, regrowth methods have failed (e.g. topical minoxidil). It is a time-tested, same-day surgical procedure that involves removing hair from one part of the body and transplanting it to another. It differs from other forms of hair restoration surgery in key ways, including the size of the surgical incision used to remove the donor hair follicles. Consequently, post-surgical scarring is so minute and unobtrusive; it’s extremely hard to see with untrained eyes.
Hair loss patients also tend to gravitate towards the procedure because it doesn’t involve lengthy, complicated pre or post-surgical care. As a matter of fact, the majority of people that undergo the simple procedure are able to resume their regular routines in as little as 24 hours. However, the full effects of the hair restoration procedure generally take longer than that to show up as the replacement follicles need time to grow.
Of course before the same-day procedure is performed, Dr. Nerette will assess the situation and determine if the patient is a good candidate for this type of hair restoration method. That normally involves a case history review and what’s known as a FOX test. It’s designed to ensure that the donor hair is healthy enough for transplantation.
