About FUE Hair Transplant

Although hair loss is very common, it can cause anxiety or lowered self-confidence among some individuals. The hair transplant surgeons at Ponte Vedra implement the state-of-the-art NeoGraft® FUE system, a technology that offers excellent, lasting outcomes. The NeoGraft system, combined with our surgeons’ skills and experience, allows each follicle to be placed methodically so that the results look and feel natural. 

Advantages of FUE Hair Transplant

  • Offers the least invasive hair transplant 
  • No scalpel, stitches, or staples 
  • No linear scar left behind
  • Natural-looking results
  • Can be done under local anesthesia
  • Minimal downtime
  • Quick recovery time
  • No residual numbness at the donor site

Ideal Candidates for FUE Hair Transplant

If you’re in the Jacksonville, Fernandina Beach, or Ponte Vedra Beach, FL area and you’re bothered by your thinning hair, bald spot, or receding hairline, you may be an excellent candidate for a FUE hair transplant. Those who make great candidates for this procedure are those who:

  • Have moderate hair loss 
  • Have enough hair on the back of the scalp to transplant 
  • Are interested in concealing a linear scar from a past hair transplant
  • Are in general good health 
  • Have realistic goals for what FUE hair transplant can do  
  • Fully understand the procedure, risks, recovery, and what to expect

You may be a candidate for FUE hair transplant if you have tried non-surgical treatments such as hair restoration shampoos, topical medications, PRP (platelet-rich plasma), or laser therapy but are still unhappy with the overall results. While these treatments can help slow or prevent hair loss, they generally are not able to restore or reverse advanced hair loss. FUE hair transplant can be done on most hair types, textures, and colors. During your private consultation, we will evaluate your hair and scalp to determine if you have enough donor follicles to achieve your aesthetic goals, and we will then create a custom treatment plan for you.

FUE Hair Transplant Procedure Details

During your consultation, we will talk to you about what to expect during your FUE procedure, including how long it will take and what to expect before, during, and after treatment. Your FUE procedure will be done in our Jacksonville, FL office using a local anesthesia to numb your scalp. An oral sedative can be added to keep you calm and relaxed during the process. We recommend wearing comfortable clothing at the time of your appointment.

Once you have been prepped for the procedure, you will be able to relax and watch TV or listen to music while our team works to restore your hair.

First, the donor follicles are extracted. These donor follicles will generally be taken from the back of your head because this is an area where hair growth is constant. For medium-to-large grafts, the back and sides of your scalp may need to be shaved. For smaller cases (less than 1,000-1,200 grafts), you may only need to have a small section of hair shaved. 

The donor hair is removed in follicular units, which includes typically about 1-4 hairs. The hair removal process is randomized so the hair close to the extracted grafts will grow back, and so it will also mask the extracted follicles. The transplanted area will be assessed thoroughly by your hair surgeon so that the transplant process is completed with precision and care, and in accordance with the angle, depth, orientation, and density of your scalp to make natural-looking results.

Recovery 

After your FUE hair transplant procedure is complete and once you have been safely monitored, you will be released to relax and recuperate at home. Prior to your release, we will go over your recovery instructions, including how you may look immediately after your transplant surgery and how to care for the extracted and implanted areas. You will most likely have some redness and inflammation in the donor and transplant sites for a few days. Small scabs around the transplanted follicles can typically be found for 7-10 days. 

Results

Several weeks after the procedure, the transplanted follicles will transition to the “resting phase” of hair growth. This typically lasts for 3-4 months. During this time, the hairs will fall out, but this is totally normal and to be expected. The transplanted follicles will move back into the growing phase and new hair will begin to appear day by day. It typically takes about 12-18 months for your final results to be visible. At this point, your hair should look thicker and fuller. To maintain your new results, we may recommend ongoing non-surgical treatments such as topical medications or specialized shampoo, as well as PRP therapy for certain patients.
