Long gone are the days when hair restoration procedures were painful, invasive, and just plain fake looking. Modern medicine has made leaps and strides when it comes to helping both men and women restore their hair. Currently, there are several different types of procedures that allow for hair restoration in New Jersey. Below, you can learn about some of the most popular ones.
FUE Hair Transplant
FUE hair transplantation is a natural and modern procedure that is perfect for those who need only a small amount of restoration and like to wear their hair short on the sides and back of the scalp (donor area). This procedure consists of using small punch tools to “score” or cut around individual follicular units on the back and sides of the scalp. Forceps (medical-grade tweezers) are then used to “pluck” the units free, which are then examined under microscopes for quality and re-implanted into the bald or thinning regions.
FUT Hair Transplant
For those who have larger areas of balding or thinning hair, the FUT hair transplantation procedure could be perfect choice for you. During an FUT, a small sliver or “strip” of hair is harvested from the donor region. The area is immediately closed with stitches or staples, and the strip is placed under high-powered microscopes and surgically dissected into the individual follicular units. These units are then re-implanted into the bald and thinning regions just like in FUE.
Benefits of Hair Transplants
The best part about the above hair transplant procedures is that you end up re-growing your own, natural hair. You can grow it long, cut it short, style it, dye it, or do anything else you would like; it’s your own hair and it will last permanently! Hair transplant surgery is also minimally invasive, relatively painless, and comes with very little recovery or down-time.
