You have seen it happen to your grandfather, your dad, your uncles, your older brothers, and you always knew this day would come, though you prayed that it wouldn’t. You are losing your hair, and it’s starting to show.
By age 35, two-thirds of American men experience some degree of hair loss. By 50, as many as 85% of men have significantly thinning hair. Male pattern baldness (MPB) accounts for over 95% of baldness in men, and unfortunately it is inevitable.
However, staying bald is not inevitable or necessary. Hair loss specialists now have the capability to reverse the effects of MPB through a hair restoration surgery, offering men the opportunity to keep their hair for years to come.
The procedure is called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). It is a hair transplant method in which individual groupings of one to four hairs are harvested from one part of the body and transferred to the balding areas of the scalp. A typical FUE hair transplant takes only eight hours to complete, and healing is accomplished in less than a week.
Patient testimonials express the outright success of the transplant surgery. Photographs show hairlines that are restored from their once receding position, and hair that covers the once barren top of the head. More and more men are choosing this method over other available procedures.
This method of hair replacement is all natural, as you are growing your own hair. In comparison to other hair restoration procedures, Follicular Unit Extraction is minimally invasive, has a shorter recovery time, a lower complication rate, and does not leave large scars.
Another method commonly used is called Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS). This procedure involves surgically removing a strip of scalp from a non-balding area and moving it to the balding area. It is clear to see that this method is far more invasive and will leave a large scar where the scalp was removed. As opposed to transferring an entire strip from one point to another, FUE moves only the follicles.
You don’t have to embrace your baldness. Men around the world are choosing Follicular Unit Extraction to restore their hair and maintain their youth.
