Hair Transplant

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

FUE is the harvesting of grafts done through the extraction of follicular units of hair consisting in one, two, three or four hairs. Hair is obtained one at a time from the donor area, which primarily constitutes the scalp. However, there are alternate options for patients with limited donor supply, body and facial hair can also be used as donor areas. This procedure is done under local anesthesia, with minimal pain and no scaring to the donor area.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

PRP is a procedure in which blood is drawn and then centrifuged to obtain platelet rich plasma. This is later injected in the scalp to stimulate hair growth, prevention of further hair loss, as well as aid in the healing process of transplanted hairs.

What to expect the day of the procedure

On the day of the procedure, oral sedation is administered for patient relaxation. The patient is kept relaxed and confortable throughout procedure; local anesthesia is administered to donor and recipient area. Depending on patient desire the back can be either shaved completely or just a small strip just so that it isn’t noticeable that grafts have been harvested from the area. Every patient is different, and we consider each and every patient’s needs. The small incisions on the donor area close within 4- 5 days after the procedure leaving no scar. Sometime around noon, lunch is provided in conjunction with oral antibiotics. The grafts are then transplanted to the desired area. Once the procedure is completed, post-operative instructions are provided, along with all medications and instructions to follow.

What to expect after the procedure

After the procedure, the patient might experience mild discomfort when resting the back of his/her head due to open incisions in the back of the head. Some swelling is expected, but some patients have none. Recovery time is very fast and minimum care is required, most patients are able to resume normal activities as early as the next day. Strenuous activity, heavy lifting, and sweating are discouraged for the first 5 days.
