FUE Hair Transplants in New Jersey
Welcome to MAXIM Hair Restoration in New Jersey
Just like our youth and health, we often take our hair for granted until it’s gone. However, all hope is not lost. If you are experiencing hair thinning or balding, surgery might help you feel more confident about your appearance. A Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant can be of tremendous help in restoring a significant amount of your lost hair. With the introduction of FUE, the promise of “no visible scars” in the donor region is becoming a reality.
If you live in New Jersey and are looking for a complimentary consultation regarding the FUE hair transplant procedure and its success rate, visit the MAXIM Hair Restoration office at the New Century surgery center. It caters to surrounding areas like Hackensack, Paramus, Ridgewood, Montclair, Clifton, Patterson, and all of Central and North New Jersey.
What Is an FUE Hair Transplant?
FUE hair transplant surgery involves taking and implanting one hair graft or follicular unit at a time. The FUE procedure utilizes innovative technologies, such as WAW and S.A.F.E. FUE. Only the top-tier hair transplant surgeons perform the surgery, and they have extensive training and experience.
During your consultation, the doctor estimates the density and amount of hair to be transplanted. The area chosen to harvest from is called the “donor” area. During the surgery, hair follicles are taken from the donor area and grafted into small openings. The area that receives the grafts is called the “recipient” area.
Benefits of FUE Hair Transplants
The following are the top five advantages of FUE hair transplant surgery:
Surgeons and clinicians perform FUE transplants in their clinics as outpatient procedures utilizing local anesthetic, meaning you will be able to leave on the same day as the surgery, and you’re awake during the entire procedure.
Scarcely Apparent Scars
Your surgeon will extract follicular units from the donor area. This method prevents the more visible linear scar seen with other hair transplant procedures. Instead, the scarring forms a dot-like pattern that is nearly unnoticeable following the healing and regeneration of hair. Because of the minimal scarring, you can wear your hair short — though not entirely shaved — with no obvious indication of having undergone a hair transplant treatment.
This technique delivers unrivaled precision in hair transplantation. The FUE technique replaces your hair by transplanting permanent hair from the back or side of your head into thinning regions, such as your hairline.
Doctors digitally scan your scalp using the FUE procedure, detecting hair in natural groups. The donor region is visible thanks to high-resolution digital imaging. They then delicately extract the targeted follicles while leaving most of your hair undisturbed and undamaged, allowing the donor region to keep its natural appearance. They graft the donor hair into thinning places, where it will regrow normally. The number of hair follicles in grafts varies, but high density is critical for treatment effectiveness.
Losing your hair can impact your mental health and self-esteem. It may also cause worry, despair, and other emotional problems. FUE hair restoration might provide you with a much-needed confidence boost.
Lesser Recovery Time
One of the benefits of FUE is that there are fewer post-operative constraints, and repair and recovery times are shorter than other hair transplant procedures such as FUT.
How Much Does an FUE Hair Transplant Cost in New Jersey?
The cost of an FUE hair transplant in New Jersey is determined by several factors, such as:
- How much hair is removed and grafted.
- Local Market rates.
- How experienced or sought-after your surgeon is.
As most health insurance policies do not cover cosmetic procedures, you will quite likely have to bear the cost of an FUE hair transplant. You’ll also need to pay for prescription drugs for pain although these are miniscule. When calculating the cost, remember to include a few days off from work. Most employers’ medical leave policies do not cover hair transplants. At the MAXIM, New Jersey office, you can get FUE surgery at an affordable price; moreover, 0% financing is available to qualifying patients.
What To Do Before Your FUE Hair Transplant
There are specific directives that you must follow before an FUE hair transplant:
- Refrain from drinking alcohol a week before the surgery. Alcohol increases the likelihood of bleeding during an operation.
- Stop smoking and using nicotine products a week before. Nicotine causes blood arteries to constrict.
- Immediately discontinue the use of any hair growth products.
- Avoid heavy exercises like weight training, bodybuilding, or vigorous aerobic exercise for at least one week before surgery.
- Avoid consuming protein shakes or caffeine a week before the surgery. These function as blood thinners.
- Don’t color your hair within the week before the surgery.
What To Do After Your FUE Hair Transplant
FUE recovery is fast. For a couple of days, you might experience inflammation or pain. Follow these aftercare recommendations that your doctor may advise:
- Refrain from showering or washing your hair for at least three days.
- Once you begin shampooing your hair, use mild shampoos for some time.
- Take several days off work to speed up the healing process.
- Avoid combing or brushing your regrown hair for at least three weeks.
- Only wear headgear if your doctor advises it.
- Refrain from any strenuous physical exercise for at least a week.
- As you heal, some hairs may fall out; this is typical. It will regrow permanently after four months.
