Restoring Your Hair Beauty With The Help of A FUE Hair Transplant Surgeon

At some point in our lives, we may experience the frustrating ordeal of loosing our hair. Hair loss is a common problem faced by many adults in Singapore. Although this is something that most of us would prefer not to go through, however it could be inevitable to some, especially men and women above 40 years old. Some of us may experience hair loss when we get older but there are some who have to deal with it much earlier in their lives.

No matter when this heart-ache issue occurs, there is a way to deal with hair loss and restore the beauty of our hair with the help of a good hair transplant surgeon in Singapore.  An effective way to take care of our hair loss problem is to have a hair transplant or hair implant surgery. This is a procedure where new hair is transplanted where the old hair has begun to fall out. This fix can be used on anyone of any age. No matter what type of hair loss problem the person has, getting a transplant may be the best way to get our hair back and restore our hair beauty that we all wanted so badly.

Hair transplantation is one of the more effective hair restoration methods used by men and women who are suffering from genetic hair loss and other female or male pattern baldness. This hair restoration surgery usually takes about a full day and is usually done under sedation, or general anesthesia. In the procedure, the experienced FUE hair surgeon will extract the healthy hair follicular units from the sides and/or back of the head (“the donor site”) and permanently transplant into the balding or hair loss areas (“the recipient site”).

The most common hair follicle extraction technique is follicular unit transfer (FUT) or commonly referred to as “strip harvesting”. This technique involves removing a single strip of the patient’s scalp where follicular units are plentiful and then cutting out the follicles to create grafts for transplanting.

In these days, another extraction technique is increasingly common, known as the follicular unit extraction (FUE), which involves removing each follicular unit at a time. This technique is more time consuming, but it avoids the linear scar from the donor site. This FUE method is usually chosen by men, particularly those under 30 who may wish to shave their head.

The average number of individual grafts needed depends on the patient; anywhere from 1,000 to 3,000 grafts is possible in an average day of surgery. It is relatively uncommon to have complications with the hair transplant surgery. Recovery time will depend on the extent of the hair surgery. Most patients reported mild pain, numbness and soreness after the surgery. However the pain can be controlled with medication prescribed by your hair transplant surgeon. It is also quite common for hairs from the transplanted follicles to fall out during the first month. The regrow will happen after 4 to 5 months in their new location.

The possible side effects may include scarring or uneven hair growth. If a patient’s follicle grafts didn’t establish well in the new site, the hair transplant surgeon may perform a follow-up surgery to transplant more follicles to fill in thinner areas and/or correct the scarring.

Hair transplantation can certainly restore the hair loss and boost one’s self image. However it is important to also set realistic expectations about the results of hair transplant. Most Singapore hair transplant surgeons will take their  time to discuss their patients’ feelings and answer any questions or concerns their patients have, including giving an estimate of how much does ARTAS hair transplant cost in Singapore.

Thereafter he or she will also discuss possible hair restoration treatment options. An experienced hair transplant surgeon should be able to take great care to design a suitable and customised FUE hair transplant treatment that will provide optimal results for his or her patients.
