Two Hair Restoration Procedures Available in New Jersey
Nobody likes losing their hair. It’s bad for men, and far worse for women who never expected to lose their hair. Thankfully, a clinic that provides hair restoration in NJ can reverse this distressing sign of aging through two procedures. If you want to see which procedure for hair restoration in NJ will work for you, read on.
FUE stands for “follicular unit extraction” or “follicular unit excision.” During an FUE, individual hairs are harvested from the donor area (sides and back of the scalp) and then transferred to the receding area or thinning patches on the top of your head. This method is limited in how many follicles can be harvested and transferred, and does leave small, subtle “dot” scars throughout the donor region.
FUT stands for “follicular unit transplantation” or “strip” surgery. During FUT, a small “strip” of hair-bearing skin is removed from the donor region. The area is immediately closed with sutures or staples. The strip is then dissected into the individual follicles under high-powered microscopes, and those follicles are implanted just like in FUE. FUT leaves a fine linear scar in the donor area, which is covered by the surrounding hair.
Modified or Combination Procedures
Sometimes a modification using smaller strips or a combination of both FUE and FUT during the same procedure is best suited for some patients. Particularly patients with limited donor areas or patients who have had prior work and now need repair.
