Hair restoration is a surgical procedure that can help to restore hair growth in areas of the scalp that have been affected by hair loss. There are two main types of hair restoration surgery: follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE). FUT involves taking a strip of hair-bearing skin from the back of the scalp and dividing it into individual follicular units. FUE involves extracting individual follicular units from the back of the scalp using a small needle. The follicular units are then transplanted to the areas of the scalp that need hair restoration.
Hair restoration surgery is a relatively safe and effective procedure. However, it is important to note that it is not a cure for hair loss. Hair restoration surgery can only restore hair growth in areas of the scalp that still have hair follicles. If the hair follicles in an area of the scalp have been destroyed, hair restoration surgery will not be effective.
The success rate of hair restoration surgery varies depending on a number of factors, including the patient’s age, the severity of hair loss, and the skill of the surgeon. However, in general, hair restoration surgery can be a very effective way to restore hair growth and improve a person’s self-confidence.
