Is an FUE Hair Transplant Permanent?

What Is an FUE Hair Transplant?

FUE hair transplants are an innovative hair restoration procedure that can completely change the appearance of hair that is thinning or balding. The results are also very natural-looking when done by a professional team like ours at the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic. But what’s even better is the fact that any hairs that are transplanted will give a permanent result.

An FUE hair transplant is a procedure used for treating thinning or balding hair. This treatment is the most advanced treatment to restore a full head of natural-looking and permanent hair. There are 2 different types of hair transplants, but the most advanced is the FUE hair transplant procedure. An FUE (follicular unit extraction) hair transplant is the most advanced technique for a hair transplant that is currently available. It is the least invasive kind of hair transplant and will create the most natural-looking results without any visible scarring.


How Does an FUE Hair Transplant Work?

Hair is extracted from the donor area. That is where the hair is fuller and resistant to the DHT (dihydrotestosterone) hormone that causes the hair loss. The donor area is located at the back of the scalp. Using either the SmartGraft or the NeoGraft technology, the hairs are harvested and individually counted and prepared for transplant.

The next step is transplanting the follicular grafts. It is very important for the follicular grafts to be implanted at the proper angles and locations to make sure that the patient will receive the most natural-looking results.

What Can I Expect from My FUE Hair Transplant Results?

By having an FUE hair transplant performed by trained, experienced, and talented people, a patient can expect to receive the most natural-looking results possible. However, the final results will depend on the patient’s level of hair loss and how much hair is available in the donor area.

Will I Get Permanent Results with an FUE Hair Transplant?

A very common concern with our patients during their consultation is whether or not their FUE hair transplant results will be permanent. Although shedding is common and expected in the initial stages of your FUE hair transplant process, after 3 to 6 months the hairs that grow will be permanent hairs. The follicles that are used for an FUE hair transplant are resistant to the DHT hormone that causes hair loss and, therefore, they are immune to hair loss. That is why they are the perfect choice for replacing hair in areas that are dealing with current loss. It is important that the hairs used in a hair transplant are permanent. Some clinics offer to use body or pubic hair in an FUE hair transplant procedure. Not only does this create unusual-looking results, it also produces a hair transplant that is not permanent. To be sure that you are getting the very best and permanent FUE hair transplant procedure, contact the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic to schedule your no-obligation consultation.
