Hair loss, while common, can be a troubling issue. If nonsurgical treatments aren't enough to slow or stop your hair loss, it could be time to consider hair transplant surgery.
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.
