FUE Hair Restoration

FUE Hair Restoration Atlanta

Follicular Unit Extraction

Follicular unit extraction, otherwise known as FUE, is an advanced hair restoration technique offered by Astra Plastic Surgery in Atlanta. Unlike traditional hair transplant methods, FUE hair transplant involves removing healthy hair follicles individually and moving them to areas where the hair loss is occurring. By doing so, the healthy hair can reattach and begin to grow in areas where the patient was otherwise bald or had thinning hair. FUE hair transplants offer a less invasive alternative to FUT, or follicular unit transplantation, hair restoration techniques.

What Is FUE Hair Transplant?

FUE hair transplant surgery promotes new hair growth for patients experiencing thinning hair or balding. The FUE hair transplant method is minimally invasive and can provide dramatic hair restoration results for patients in Atlanta. During the procedure, individual hair follicles are extracted from the scalp and transplanted to areas of hair loss. Usually, the donor areas include the back and sides of the head. Then, this hair is transplanted into the hairline or crown.

Because of its minimally invasive nature, FUE hair transplants are a common alternative to more traditional hair restoration methods, like FUT. FUE hair transplants do not require any stitches, sutures, or linear scarring. Patients can enjoy a shorter recovery period following the procedure. By placing the hairs individually, patients can achieve a more natural-looking hair pattern than achievable with traditional hair replacement methods.

What Are The Benefits Of FUE Hair Transplant?

FUE hair transplants restore a natural head of hair for both men and women suffering from pattern baldness or hair thinning. In many cases, hair loss is hereditary. Typically, men experience it more on the crown of the head and the hairline, while women experience more frequently experience hair loss on the top-central portion of the head. While over-the-counter solutions can sometimes slow hair loss, hair transplant surgery is the solution to restoring a thicker, fuller head of hair. FUE is a less invasive alternative to traditional methods of hair restoration, such as the strip method. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer FUE hair transplants for patients seeking to restore their hair.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For FUE Hair Transplant?

During your consultation for FUE in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his team of talented hair restoration surgeons will evaluate the current state of your hair, your medical history, as well as your aesthetic goals to determine if you are an ideal candidate for FUE hair transplant surgery. FUE hair transplant surgery can reverse hair loss caused by genetics, scars, burns, prior cosmetic surgery, and traction alopecia. Generally, patients who have alopecia areata are not ideal candidates for an FUE hair transplant.

The ideal candidate for an FUE hair transplant is in good general health and a non-smoker. It’s also important that patients are able to maintain realistic expectations for the results of their procedure. Patients with total hair loss may not be candidates for FUE, considering it requires grafts to be taken from a healthy donor area. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer FUE for both men and women in Atlanta.

What Should I Expect During FUE Hair Transplant?

Before undergoing the FUE hair transplant procedure, the area will be numbed using a local anesthetic. Because of the minimally invasive nature of the procedure, FUE does not require general anesthesia. To begin the procedure, your hair surgeon will individually remove healthy hair follicles from a previously decided donor area. These follicles are removed from a fuller area of hair, using a one-millimeter punch tool. Using this tool, a tiny circular incision is made around each follicle, allowing them to be removed from the head with gentle suction.

Once the follicles are extracted, they can be implanted into the treatment area one by one. By implanting the follicles individually, our hair surgeons can ensure the placement is precise to allow for the most natural-looking hair restoration results. By opting for this method of hair transplant, patient can avoid incisions, sutures, and scarring, as well as little bleeding and lower risk for complications during surgery.

What Should I Expect After FUE Hair Transplant?

Following FUE hair transplant in Atlanta, patients may experience mild bleeding, swelling, or irritation. However, these symptoms are normal and will subside as the body continues to heal. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, patients are free to return to their daily activities immediately and even drive themselves home following the surgery. However, it is recommended that patients relax and recover after the treatment.

Before sending you home after an FUE hair transplant, Dr. Killingsworth and his team of hair restoration professionals will provide detailed aftercare instructions. It is important that patients follow these directions with care to minimize their recovery time and maximize their results. If you have any questions throughout the recovery period, we encourage you to call our office. Our staff is on hand to answer any questions you may have during this time.





What Results Should I Expect From FUE Hair Transplant?

During your consultation for an FUE hair transplant in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his team will go over your expected results in detail. It is important to note that no two patients will receive the same exact procedure results. Rather, results will vary by patient based on a variety of factors, including age, treatment area size, post-operative care, the body’s natural healing process, and more.

Immediately after the procedure, patients may have a difficult time visualizing their results. Over the next 6-8 weeks, new hair wills begin to show with full effects being seen about 6 months following FUE hair transplant surgery. However, within 3-6 months, patients should begin to notice their hair beginning to grow again. As time progresses, the results of your FUE hair transplant will continue to improve.

How Much Does FUE Hair Transplant In Atlanta Cost?

Astra Plastic Surgery offers FUE hair transplants for patients who struggle from hair loss. The cost of FUE hair restoration depends on a variety of factors. Because hair restoration is considered a cosmetic procedure, it will not be covered by insurance. We will provide you with the complete cost during your consultation.
