FUE Hair Transplant Clinic Cleveland Columbus OH

modern hair transplants ohioThe number of men and women in the U.S. that have hair loss is amazing. By age 35 over two-thirds of men will experience hair loss, and 30 million women also by age 35 will develop some degree of thinning hair.

At VanScoy Hair Restoration Clinics, our team of dedicated Ohio hair transplant professionals are devoted to helping our clients achieve the look they want and deserve. One of the hair transplant methods we use is the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant system. Here is a quick overview of this method of hair transplantation and restoration:

How FUE Hair Transplants works

The hair on your scalp comes from a hair follicle in your scalp. The FUE hair transplant procedure is to individually transplant healthy hair follicles from the donor areas of the scalp and move them to another area where the hair is much thinner.

The older technique to perform a hair transplant surgery has been to remove a strip of your scalp with the hair follicles in it. The hair follicles would then be extracted and grafted into areas with there is thinning hair. This type of hair transplant would cause linear scars.

Thanks to advances, an FUE (Follicular Unit Excision) transplant method doesn’t require a strip of your scalp to be removed. Instead, we utilize a micro-punch. It leaves no trace of extraction. That means there is no scarring or large sections that need to heal.

FUE Hair Transplant Timeline

Each person is different, and much depends on the goal you wish to achieve along with the number of hair follicles that are needed. It is not uncommon that a couple of treatments may be needed. Each session can take several hours. We perform your FUE hair transplantation over the course of several days and after each session, you are free to go about your day. You do have to take care and protect the transplantation area so you can wear hats or get your head wet for approximately one week.

The perfect companion treatment for hair loss – often used in conjunction with hair transplantation – is Enhanced Hair Therapy. EHT Hair Therapy has been shown to boost your hair restoration results, even when used as a stand-alone procedure, to restore your hair and promote healthy hair growth in both men and women with all hair types. This technique involves harvesting growth factors from your own blood and then injecting them into the areas of the scalp that received hair follicles.

Recovery and hair growth are not the same for everyone. As your scalp accepts each follicle it will send it into the natural growth cycle. This means you may not see results for about three months. Give yourself a little patient and you will be rewarded with hair that is yours and will not fall out.

FUE Hair Transplants Men

Like millions of men, my hair loss was gradual. It started out with just a few strands of hair on my pillow. As time went on, I would find more and more on my clothes as well. Then came a day when I looked at my hairbrush and noticed the amount of hair that had gathered on it. When you suddenly realize you’re losing your hair, it is hard to fully accept.

FUE Hair Transplants MenWhen I noticed my hair was receding, I started doing some research and that is how I came across Van Scoy Hair Clinics. I tried to find out as much as I could about the options available for hair restoration. I started to read a lot on FUE hair transplantation procedure. When I went for a hair and scalp analysis and consultation, I was told that my hair loss was in an advanced stage and topicals wouldn’t restore my hair as I wanted. I was told that I was a perfect candidate though for the FUE hair transplant procedure.

On the day of my hair transplant, I had already spoken with the surgeon and felt very confident and even excited. The surgeon was assisted by his staff as he began the process. They move individual follicular units that consist of 1 to 4 hairs each, one an area on my scalp, and it was strategically selected the placement of each individual follicular unit. The hairline was marked out in advance to re-create a look that would be impossible to detect that it wasn’t my original hairline.

I was awake during the procedure and I remember being surprised that I wasn’t in any pain. Even later that night I didn’t feel any discomfort and I was able to get back to doing the things I wanted. The whole procedure time took about a day. My donor area healed quickly and with the FUE transplant, I didn’t have the typical linear scar that would have with traditional hair transplant methods.

The FUE hair transplant method is like nothing done before. It is a much more pleasant experience for patients. A skilled surgeon can give you a hairline that is natural-looking and the end result of the transplant gives the ultimate success and patient satisfaction. Hair transplants today, through the FUE method are changing the way hair transplants are performed.
