Hair loss doesn’t have to define your life. Whether it is brought on by aging, genetics, or hormonal changes, it can be frustrating to watch your hairline recede further and further and feel powerless to do anything against it.
You might try this shampoo and that diet, or any other combination of tricks and tips to thicken your thinning hair, but most likely none of these efforts will have a lasting impact. If your hair stops growing in certain areas of your scalp, the only way to make it grow again is to transplant it there.
Which Hair Transplant is Best? Pros and Cons of FUE vs FUT Hair Transplants
Hair transplantation – meaning moving your own hair from one area of the scalp to another area – can occur in two basic ways: You either take a strip of scalp with units of hair and surgically remove it from the back of the head, break it up into follicles, and re-insert them into the balding areas, or you can take individual follicles of hair and move them one at a time. Extracting the hair as a strip is called Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), whereas moving the individual follicles is called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
On first glance, FUT seems to make the most sense. If larger pieces of scalp can be extracted, wouldn’t that part be faster and therefore easier on both the surgeon and the patient? This is fundamentally true. An experienced surgeon can relatively quickly make the required incisions and take out the strip, which leaves the business of re-inserting the pieces in the recipient areas. Under general anesthesia, there isn’t much stress for the patient.
However, there are some drawbacks. Recovering from this surgery can take time, and it leaves behind what industry experts call a linear scar that doesn’t always blend in. Once you grow your hair back, it can be hidden of course, but you’ll always have to watch your hairstyle and make sure you’re covered.
FUE, on the other hand, leaves no scars whatsoever. Using a machine under pneumatic pressure, the technician extracts hair grafts from the donor area and injects them right back into the previously marked recipient area, making sure the resulting hairline is perfectly blended in. Yes, this is a rather lengthy procedure. But you will emerge with only a series of small red dots where the hair was extracted and inserted, and in just a few days these dots will disappear and be replaced with your hair growing in.
If you are looking for an FUE hair transplant in Nashville, there is no one better equipped to help you than the experts at Nashville Hair Doctor with years of experience in the industry.
What Patients are Saying About Nashville Hair Doctor
David Reed, a Nashville radio announcer, had a previous experience with an attempted FUT hair transplant that left him less than satisfied. He calls it a “pretty gnarly procedure.” He was almost ready to give up, but was encouraged to try NeoGraft, one of the leading FUE hair restoration methods. He was amazed. It seemed “lightyears beyond” his previous experience – easy, fast, and allowing him back at work the next day.
Craig Hentrich is a former Titans NFL football player who was concerned about premature hair loss. He didn’t want to be the guy who looked too old to be the father of his young son. When he came to the Nashville Hair Doctor for his NeoGraft hair transplant, he was impressed by the professional environment and the caring staff. That the procedure was “virtually pain-free” was a big surprise to him.
