Losing your hair can be a very disheartening thing for anyone to have to deal with. While it’s a fact that more men get Hair Transplants than women, that is based more on genetics than on anything else. Women may also receive Hair Transplants when needed. Modern advances have helped ensure that you can and will look much better after getting a Hair Transplant procedure done by a reputable specialist like Dr. Ariel Ostad and his team of qualified experts.

What is Follicular Unit Extraction Procedure

The FUE procedure is a recently developed, and minimally invasive hair transplant procedure that requires no incisions, scalpels, or sutures. While the much more traditional FUT or strip method is still used by many doctors today, the FUE is becoming a much more popular and preferred procedure by patients. The FUE involves the removal of individual hair follicles in a patient’s naturally occurring groupings of hair (generally 1-4 hairs). Those follicles are ultimately transplanted back into the patient’s balding areas. The FUE procedure requires a great level of hand-eye coordination and is generally a more labor-intensive procedure than the FUT (strip) method.

Who are the best candidates for getting the procedure?

  • Anyone with irreparably damaged hair
  • Anyone with thinning hair
  • Anyone with crowning
  • Anyone with noticeable bald spots

Regardless of your age or gender, if you fall under any of those categories, you may be a good candidate for the FUE procedure. In which case it’s important for you to give Dr. Ariel Ostad and his qualified team of experts a call for a free consultation to see what we can do for you.

What can I expect after the procedure?

After 4-5 months, your transplanted hair will start to grow and resurface on your scalp. Your newly transplanted hair will have grown back fuller and thicker within 9-12 months. You’ll be able to swim, run, and do anything you wish to without damaging your hair. Why? Because it’s YOUR REAL HAIR! Patients should take care of their hair, and manage it as anyone else would.
