Transplanted hair is removed from one area of the body (the donor site) and transferred to another (recipient site). The transferred tissue is not "rejected" as it is not foreign tissue. The transplanted hair maintains its own characteristics; color, texture, growth rate, and curl, after transplantation and regrowth. The hair follicules from the donor area are not affected by testosterone in the andorgenetic alopecia cases.
Our medical staff only perform FUE technique. They are very well trained on this technique, and they are concern about its advantages over Strip technique.
More than 1500 patient have been operated by us with FUE technique and their satisfaction with the outcome is complete.
Most people are pleasantly surprised by how little pain they experience throughout the process with FUE technique. You will generally experience some discomfort as anesthetic is injected into the scalp. Once the skin is anesthetized, there is no pain. If the numbing medicine wears off during the course of the procedure, more is injected to re-anesthetize the area.
The only way to know for sure is to have a consultation with a hair restoration surgeon. Generally, those who are very young (in their teens or early twenties) are not good candidates because it is difficult to predict how far their hair loss will progress.
Other factors that a physician may consider in deciding whether you are a good candidate include donor supply, the extent of your current hair loss, family history of hair loss, personal hair characteristics and whether or not you have realistic expectations.
Hair transplantation is more expensive than a hair piece or alternative treatments. However hair transplantation is the only permanent solution for hair loss and most people consider it a good investment in their future happiness. Other treatments (such as medication or hair pieces) require lifelong maintenance and/or expenses, meaning that hair transplantation might actually be more cost effective over the long-run.
