FUE – Follicular unit extraction is one of the advanced techniques for hair transplantation at present. As it is a new and innovative technology which differs from previous methods, a lot of myths have been raised with FUE techniques. Let’s bust some of the myths that have been floating around FUE transplant. Let’s learn about the fact and fiction associated with this innovative procedure.
Myth: FUE Has Strict Guidelines Over Candidacy
Fact: This is a myth because almost every person with hair loss problem is a candidate for FUE. Some of the previous hair transplant techniques have strict guidelines to be a good candidate which include the right hair colour, texture, and the right quantity of donor’s hair.
In FUE, these strict parameters are not considered. For example, if a person doesn’t have sufficient donor hairs on the head, they are taken from other parts of the body. However, fewer criteria need to be met like age and other health conditions to be a candidate for FUE as it is an advanced technique.
Myth: Only Men Can Benefit from FUE Hair Transplants
Fact: This is one of the most popular myths floating around all hair transplant methods. In our society, we usually see men undergoing hair transplants, but women can equally benefit from FUE hair transplant like men. Men and women both experience hair loss problem and FUE hair transplant can help in restoring the lost hair for both men and women with a full and more youthful hairline.
Myth: FUE Hair Transplantation Give Look Artificial
Fact: In any surgical procedure, the final results depend on the skill and experience of the surgeon. Here at Hairsure Clinic, we have a team of experienced hair transplant surgeons who can artistically place the hair to mimic your natural hairline according to your face shape. The reasons why people choose FUE is because of its benefits like minimal scarring and natural appearance. After transplantation, once your hair has grown, you can comb, style and cut it like natural hair.
Myth: FUE Transplants Provide Immediate Results.
Fact: No hair transplant procedure can provide immediate results. The transplanted hair grows like natural hair. It is a slow process which takes weeks to months to show noticeable results. Slowly, your hair will begin to grow and give you a natural appearance. In the same way, FUE also can’t provide instant results, but the results are fast and accurate than other hair transplant procedures with many benefits.
Myth: People Cannot Undergo FUE Hair Transplant After Undergoing a Strip Transplant
Fact: This is an absolute myth. If you have undergone strip hair transplantation and if it has failed, then FUE can provide promising results. You can undergo FUE hair transplantation for sure. Having a strip hair transplantation in the past doesn’t mean that you cannot have FUE hair transplant now. You go for FUE if you are unsatisfied with the previous results.
Myth: FUE Transplants Leave Severe Scars
Fact: The reason why most people are turning to choose FUE hair transplant than other methods is due to minimal scarring. In FUE procedure, a punching is used to remove and transplant hair follicles. But in strip hair transplant, a surgeon extracts a strip of scalp from the donor area, the lower part of the head.
FUE only leaves small circular scars which fade away over time whereas strip hair transplant leaves a linear scar which is seen with shorter hair length. The scars in FUE hair transplant are cosmetically considered as insignificant.
Myth: Large Numbers of Grafts Can’t Be Transplanted In FUE Technique
Fact: This is a myth which came from a belief that a large number of hair grafts can’t be taken because of insufficient blood supply, but this is not true. The blood supply to the scalp is sufficient enough to take thousands of hair grafts at one time.
However, a large number of hair grafts can be transplanted now during FUE transplants because the donor’s hair is not only taken from the head, some of them can use their hair taken from shoulders, legs, and chest as donor hair for a full natural hairline. So the number of grafts that can be used is not limited compared to other hair transplant techniques.
Myth: Transplanted Hair Falls Off Easily If FUE Transplant Method Is Used
Fact: This is a false statement that the transplanted hair grows only for some time and then it has the tendency to fall out in FUE. But, the truth is, the hair that’s transplanted does not fall off easily; it grows and lasts for a lifetime. The transplanted hair also has a natural life cycle. The transplanted hair falls off in 2-3 weeks after implantation, and after that, it grows back giving the best results with a natural hairline in 9 to 12 months.
