Welcome to MAXIM Hair Restoration in Austin

Hair loss can bring down your confidence and make you appear older than you are. You may wear wigs or caps to conceal bald areas; however, there is no substitute for natural hair. On the contrary, if you are in Austin, TX, follicular unit extraction, a more advanced hair transplant technique, may be an option at MAXIM Hair Restoration center. It is centrally located and can cater to North, South, and East Austin, along with San Antonio, Georgetown, Cedar Park, Round Rock and various other locations.

Let’s discover why so many people in Austin, TX prefer FUE hair transplants over traditional hair restoration treatments.

What Is an FUE Hair Transplant?

An FUE operation employs cutting-edge hair restoration technology to provide a long-term, natural-looking aesthetic improvement for hair loss. During this one-day outpatient treatment, expert clinicians extract individual follicular units from the back and sides of the head in an effort to reconstruct your hairline or crown, but it can also be used to improve your eyebrows or design a new beard. Individual follicular units, containing 1-4 hair follicles are extracted from the donor region (side or back of your head) and transplanted to balding areas (generally crown or front hairline). The donor site usually will recover within a few days with no linear scars or sutures.

Benefits of FUE Hair Transplant

FUE (follicular unit extraction) hair transplant has various benefits compared to other hair restoration methods like FUT. Let’s list down a few.

Natural Appearance

The FUE procedure extracts and transplants hair follicles in their cluster, resulting in no visible linear scars as you would see with FUT’s (follicular unit transplantation) [1] hair transplant method. This gives hair a more natural look and gives you styling flexibility, such as buzz cuts and fades.

Minimal Discomfort

Like a dentist’s appointment, the FUE technique employs a local anesthetic to eliminate most pain throughout the procedure. As the FUE transplant is a minimally invasive procedure, most patients report little or no discomfort during or after the procedure.

Recovery Time Is Less

Because the procedure doesn’t require a scalpel or sutures, an FUE transplant’s recovery is swift, with many patients returning to their usual activities within a few days. The surgery itself takes approximately six to eight hours.

Donor Area Scarring Is Minimal

Because the follicles are collected in a highly calculated and meticulous way, the appearance and density of the donor region shouldn’t leave any noticeable change. As the donor region seems undamaged and unmodified, FUE is the procedure of choice for persons who like to wear their hair relatively short in the back.


Another advantage of FUE is its improved cost-effectiveness. It allows your surgeon to harvest more follicles in a single sitting, making it affordable. Moreover, the expense of your treatment is directly proportional to the number of grafts required to obtain the desired outcome and the difficulty of your procedure.
