Bring Back Your Hairline With FUE

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi



Are you struggling with losing your hair? You are not alone. Hair loss or a receding hairline are two major issues for men and some women in the Las Vegas area. With today’s medical advances, modern hair transplant procedures are more natural-looking, easier to undergo, and exactly what individuals need to get their hair back. Hair restoration techniques have come a long way and today both men and women have great options like FUE to remove the signs of hair loss and feel more confident.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, Director of VIP Plastic Surgery, offers an exciting new hair transplant solution called FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction to his Las Vegas patients. This latest development in hair transplant procedures helps with thinning or balding areas while even promoting new hair growth. Hair loss can cause anxiety and worry for both men and women. Here is some information on this permanent solution to getting your hair back and how Dr. Khorsandi can help.

What is all the buzz about?

FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction is a new hair transplant procedure that has everyone talking. No scars, no general anesthesia, and minimal discomfort are a few of the perks -- not to mention the natural-looking, amazing results. More patients in the Las Vegas area are choosing this hair transplant surgery and getting the results they want.

How does it work?

This new, innovative hair restoration technique involves a minimally invasive procedure that can transform balding spots or receding hairlines. Executed by a qualified expert like Dr. Khorsandi, small micro-sized holes extract hair follicles in groups of 1-4 hairs in a designated target area. Typical target areas are on the back or sides of the scalp where donor hair is removed by finding strong, healthy hairs for the transplant.

Surgical care is crucial

When it comes to hair transplant procedures, it takes a keen eye and creative touch to give patients natural-looking results. Once the strongest follicles have been extracted, a surgeon must use surgical artistry to graft those follicles in the target area using precise depth and angles to create the most natural-looking results. Dr. Khorsandi will make sure a patient’s natural growth pattern is emulated with the donor follicles in order to give his patients the best results.

The FUE results

The FUE technique is a longer surgical procedure than other hair restoration options, but is more precise, leaving patients with more natural-looking results. Since the precise extraction allows the surgeon to place each donor follicle in order to mimic a patient’s natural hair growth pattern, it requires more procedural time, but patients say it is worth it. Another excellent benefit is that the donor area needs no sutures and is practically unnoticeable after 7-10 days. Due to the tiny incisions for extraction, patients are left with only small scabs that will quickly heal leaving no visible signs of the FUE procedure in about 2 weeks. Patients will be left with fuller, thicker hair in the target area giving them a whole new look in a couple of months.

The FUE recovery

Hair loss is steadily eliminated with the FUE technique as new hair grows in about 3-4 months. During that period, you will lose more hair so don’t panic. This is part of the normal process with FUE hair restoration and is actually a good sign. The new hair growing in is pushing out the transplanted follicles which means new growth in the target area is happening. Your target and donor area will be swollen for a few days, so most patients just wear a hat for a couple of weeks until their symptoms subside. Most patients return to work within 3-5 days and have little discomfort during the healing process. FUE is a low risk surgery that gives patients amazing results.

Other benefits of FUE

Hair transplant surgery techniques have been around for years but FUE is giving patients an easier more permanent way to get rid of their hair loss. The transplanted hair follicles that were strong and healthy from the donor area will begin to grow while stimulating new growth. In a few months, patients will begin to feel and look younger. If patients begin to experience thinning hair or baldness in other areas of their scalp, then FUE can be repeated in those new target areas. Hair restoration has never been so easy and this procedure gives patients such great, natural-looking results. Thanks to FUE, there simply is no need to struggle with hair loss any longer.
