Hair transplantation or hair restoration is the fastest growing aesthetic procedure for men, in line with the increasing life expectancy and aging lifestyle choices for the male population. Hair loss is considered the leading indicator of aging, and a hair transplant or restoration can wind back years on the facial appearance and perceived age of men, as well as with women.
FUI (Follicular Unit Integration)
Follicular Unit Integration (FUI) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed in our modern surgical facility and is the most established safe and proven procedure for ensuring transplanted hair follicle viability. Patients receive sedation, allowing them to be comfortable and totally relaxed while the surgeon and technicians complete the procedure.
After receiving sedation, both the donor area (usually the back or sides of the scalp) and the recipient area(s) are anesthetized. The tissue to be used for grafting is removed, and the plastic surgeon skillfully conceals the area from which it was removed. The follicle-bearing tissue is then hand-fractionated, resulting in microscopic grafts for insertion into the designated recipient area(s).
The surgeon then uses a variety of microscopic instruments to create receptive sites for the follicle-bearing grafts, which may contain as few as a single follicle or perhaps two to three follicles in areas where greater density is desired. Your surgeon will continue to vary the articulation of the instrument during the creation of recipient sites, for a natural look when the follicles become active and begin to produce hairs.
