Follicular Units Critical to Next Gen Hair Transplants

Hair transplants have gotten a bad wrap in the past mostly because they just looked fake. Visible plugs made the procedures become the butt of jokes for many years. Thankfully improved skills and technologies have changed the way people feel about hair transplant procedures - and the number of the surgeries happening today is increasing drastically.

This is all thanks to the ability to have a natural hair transplant that fixes the issue of bald spots, without everyone noticing its been done.

Not having to worry about people noticing hair loss, or the fact that a procedure was done, can go leaps and bounds in keeping self esteem issues at bay. Conforming to societal norms and always putting the best face forward have actually become an important factor in many cultures and societies.

A natural hair transplant is achieved by taking units of hair and surgically implanting them following the hairs natural growth pattern - also known as Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT).

Hair taken from someone’s donor site (usually the back, lower area of the scalp less prone to hair loss) can also be done. This is typically referred to as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and uses a “punch hole” type of extraction method to grab small units of scalp and hair follicles and placing them in the problem areas - otherwise known as the recipient site.

More commonly, these procedures have been used to address male pattern baldness and help those men who suffered from hair loss. However today, because the procedure is minimally invasive and so natural, people are turning to the surgery to assist with scarring from injuries to helping fill in bare spots in eyebrows and facial hair - and so much more.
