Now, Enjoy the Benefits of FUE Hair Transplant with Minimal Transection Rate

Hair loss concerns are growing among men. Reports suggest that approximately 1 out of 4 males will begin seeing balding signs by the age of 30, and close to 70 percent of males will experience hair loss by the age of 60. Luckily hair restoration and hair transplant solutions come to the rescue of these patients.

Among modern hair transplant techniques, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is the most popular because it removes the agony of linear scars and bold “donor tissues” that don’t regenerate as well as other traditional hair transplant issues.

FUE hair transplant was introduced approximately 10 years ago as a procedure to help solve most of the problems associated with traditional hair transplants. As the process involves extracting each individual hair, or small hair group rather than a patch of hair, it prevents the linear scar effect or the plugged look typical in traditional Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT). The result is a completely natural look.

“FUE looked promising from the day it was invented, a huge improvement over traditional methods,” said Dr. John P. Cole, a pioneer in FUE hair transplants. “That said, I knew it would take a lot of work to get around the new issues this method presented.”

However, according to Cole, even expert physicians performing
FUE hair transplant can sometimes damage as much as to 10-20 percent of the donor hair permanently, creating a visible “thinning” effect to donor areas. This effect is called as transection. During the surgery, hair transplant surgeons try to make the transection rate the minimum possible.

A debate was on whether to favor the older methods like FUT in which there would be linear scar on the back of the scalp or the new FUE method that might cause noticeable thinning effect on the donor area. Modern FUE methods solve this dilemma by reducing the transaction rate to minimum so patients can choose them confidently.

Dr. Cole has improved the FUE and invented his own set of patented tools to decrease the damage to donor hair areas, making FUE an overall easier process. He claims to have achieved an impressive transection rate of under 3 percent, rivaling that of traditional methods, while still avoiding the linear scar effect.

Despite the “scar effect” caused by FUT many patients opt for FUT because it is more cost effective. FUT method is especially useful for patients with big bald patches, while FUE methods are ideal for patients who don’t like to carry the permanent scar mark on their hair. Of late, several treatments are offered in conjunction with FUT transplant to minimize post-op scar on the scalp.
