If you’re considering a hair transplant, the NeoGraft® Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) treatment is today’s preferred way to regenerate a thicker head of hair. LM Medical NYC offers the procedure as part of our line of hair restoration services to help our patients overcome the effects of hair loss.
What is FUE?
During a NeoGraft FUE procedure, our elite team of grafting specialists surgically extract individual hair follicles instead of entire strips, as with a traditional approach. They take the follicles from a donor part of your body and implant them in the balding area.
NeoGraft FUE Benefits
There are many benefits to the FUE method of hair transplantation. So, keep reading to see if it is suitable for you!
FUE is a Confidence Booster
Losing your hair can seriously impact your self-esteem and even cause worry, despair or other emotional issues. Therefore, hair regrowth with FUE could provide you with a much-needed confidence boost.
FUE Delivers Fuller, Thicker Results
FUE delivers outstanding results with a 90-95% survival rate. To compare, the “strip” approach (FUT) has a 75% survival rate. This is possible because FUE’s precise harvesting approach causes minor trauma to the hair follicles for more healthy hair afterward.
The Results are Permanent
The results of FUE are permanent. You will experience some fallout a few weeks after getting hair transplants, but it will grow back strong and healthy.
FUE Leaves No Visible Scars
Because FUE extraction sites are so small (less than 1mm), scarring is virtually undetectable. The doctor’s tiny incisions where the hair follicles are transplanted heal without a trace. While small scabs form in the target area after surgery, they heal within ten days.
You Feel Minor Discomfort During and After Treatment
We use long-acting anesthetics to numb your scalp during surgery, so the procedure is painless, and there is minor post-surgical pain and discomfort. Thus, over-the-counter pain relievers like Tylenol are usually enough to get you through the night after your operation. Nearly all patients report no pain after 24 hours, with the average full recovery time being under a week.
FUE’s Recovery Period is Ultra-Short
NeoGraft FUE hair transplants can regrow your hair without requiring weeks of rehabilitation. You will not have any staples or stitches to worry about, so you can resume most everyday activities in one to two days.
FUE is an In-Office Procedure
At LM Medical NYC, we complete your FUE with NeoGraft as an in-office procedure. You can even drive yourself to and from your appointment because the process is done under a local anesthetic.
Opting for a hair transplant is a significant decision that can provide enormous personal joy. Contact LM Medical NYC to learn more about FUE and your hair restoration alternatives.
