Hair replacement is a popular medical procedure that surgically removes hair follicles from a specific part of your body, typically the donor site, to a specific bald or thinning area of your body called the recipient site. The technique is often used to treat male Pattern Baldness. There are three main types of hair replacement: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), Follicular Unit Shaving (FUSS) and Hair Restoration Surgery (HRS). Hair restoration surgery, also known as hair replacement, is an invasive surgical procedure that involves the surgical removal of healthy hair follicles in a specific area. After hair transplantation, the recipient area is left barren until the patient must undergo another hair transplant. Visit Manchester Hair Loss Clinic.
When performing hair replacement surgery, doctors must take into account many factors such as: donor site (where hair loss occurs); hair loss; patient’s overall health and psychological health; and patient’s prior history of hair loss. Factors such as these to determine which type of hair replacement surgery is best for a patient. For example, FUE usually costs more than other hair replacement surgery techniques such as FUSS and HRS because it involves more surgery time and more expensive treatment options such as threading, mini-grafting and follicular unit extraction. This is because the techniques used in FUE require the incision of more skin and hair.
Another factor that determines the success of modern hair replacement systems is the patient’s hair loss history. A patient who has had a complete restoration of his hairs is very likely to recover all of his hairs. However, if a patient’s hair loss history consists of only very minimal hairs lost over a long period of time, then modern hair replacement systems may not be able to restore all of his hairs. This is where the use of a wig or a hairpiece comes in handy. Wigs are the only item of clothing that can be worn during the restoration process so wearing one is an essential part of a patient undergoing hair replacement surgery.
