FUE Hair Transplant in San Francisco, CA

Hair loss happens, but you can fight it by reaching out to Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration for FUE hair transplants in San Francisco, California.

Nobody wants to see their hair thinning or balding: It can signify age, and it can deeply affect our confidence and self-image. Fortunately, times have changed, and now there are proven procedures that can refresh and rejuvenate thinning hair – all in a matter of hours.

There are many techniques and methods of hair restoration, and some are more effective than others. At Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration, we only do what works. Read on to learn a little more about FUE hair transplants, and what you can expect from your own hair transplant procedure.

FUE? FUT? What’s the difference?

When it comes to hair transplants, you have two choices: FUE, and FUT. Both options involve taking hair from the sides or back of your head (where your hair is thicker), and transplanting it to the top or front of your head (where your hair is thinner). While the end goal is the same, the procedures are very different.

FUT, which stands for Follicular Unit Transplantation has been around for longer than FUE. With FUT, a surgeon cuts out sections of the scalp and grafts it back in an area that is bald or balding. It’s best used when balding has become more complete and widespread, and it’s a relatively invasive procedure.

While FUT is effective, there are some downsides: There are noticeable scars after FUT, and some people report a “plug” look, where the hair (and skin) is mismatched and seems out of place. Fortunately, there’s another option: Getting an FUE hair transplant in San Francisco, CA.

FUE, which stands for Follicular Unit Extraction works similarly to FUT, but much more delicately. Unlike FUT, which involves removing entire strips of scalp, FUE only removes the hair follicles. This means instead of strips of skin being replaced, it’s just the hair being moved from point A to point B.

FUE is much less invasive than FUT. It’s an outpatient procedure, which means you’re able to get it done and get on with the rest of your day afterwards – and as long as you don’t submerge the area in water or do any hard exercise for a week, you’ll be good to go. Unlike FUT there is minimal scarring with FUE, which also provides a much more natural appearance: There’s no long scars to indicate where the plugs were implanted.

Who is Eligible for a Hair Transplant or FUE Treatment?

Whether or not someone is suitable for a hair transplant or FUE treatment will be determined by a hair transplant doctor. A doctor from Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration will review your options with you and determine whether you are suitable for a FUE hair transplant in San Francisco, CA. This type of FUE hair transplant procedure is generally recommended for someone who still has some hair on their head and falls within a certain age range. This age range can vary but generally is for those between the ages of around 25 and 65. Patients under the age of 25 typically are just experiencing the early stages of hair loss and it still isn’t known yet if that will continue. For those who are over 65, their hair is generally not as thick and can be very thin making it more difficult to conduct the FUE hair transplant. This is why it is generally a procedure more often for those who fall within that age range. However, this is not always the case, and if you fall outside of that age range or hair type consult with one of our doctors to go over your treatment options in more detail and to determine if you can receive a FUE hair transplant.  

Common Causes of Hair Loss

Hair loss can be the result of many different reasons. It also can present itself in different stages as seen through different levels of hair loss and patterns. Some people only lose a marginally small amount of hair leading to different stages of pattern baldness, while others lose almost all of their hair. For many people, it’s a hereditary condition that is passed down from the generations. For others, hair loss could be the result of radiation therapy, different medicines that lead to hair loss, and even some steroids. Your doctor can find out the reason why your hair is thinning and decide if a FUE hair transplant in San Francisco, CA is right for you. Consult with our doctors today to get your hair treatment process started.
