New Hair Graft Hair Transplant Chattanooga

The New Hair Graft hair transplant technique is based on Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), an advanced approach used to acquire the donor hair for a hair transplant . During a follicular unit extraction, a small punch is used to make a small, circular incision in the skin surrounding the donor follicular unit. Unlike strip harvesting where an entire strip is removed from the head with a scalpel and then dissected into smaller units for application, the donor follicular unit is extracted directly from the scalp and immediately transplanted to the recipient site. Not only does the follicular unit graft produce the same natural results as with strip harvesting, the scarring is not as noticeable than the linear scarring caused by strip excision.The creation of the FUE technique was motivated by the need to eliminate the noticeable scarring caused from strip harvesting . FUE is also the least invasive hair transplantation procedure available.

New Hair Graft vs. Strip Harvesting?

While some methods of hair transplantation take several sessions, most New Hair Graft cases are completed in just one session.

FUE is less invasive than strip harvesting. In fact, patients report minimal discomfort, have less bleeding and are subject to less complications.It is considered a minor procedure requiring only local anesthesia. However, strip harvesting is the most popular and efficient technique for obtaining the donor hair used in a hair transplant procedure.

One reason some patients choose FUE over strip harvesting is to allow themselves the option to wear shorter hair. The linear scar produced from strip harvesting would be visible on a scalp with very short hair. Usually, it is the younger patients who consider this to be a determining issue.

For those who frequently participate in strenuous activities or contact sports and cannot afford downtime, FUE may be a better choice. Unlike a strip excision that can take anywhere from weeks to months to regain full strength, the strength of the donor area in an FUE is never weakened. In fact, many patients return to work the next day!

FUE can also be a great alternative to those who cannot undergo strip excision due to a tight scalp. On the other hand, patients with a tight scalp at the donor area often have less donor hair to spare. This is because a tighter scalp can restrict the stimulation needed for ample hair growth.

Unlike a strip excision, an FUE can utilize hair from all areas of the body and is not limited to the scalp. It is important to keep in mind, however, that non-scalp hair may not match very well.
