It was early in your 20s, and your hair started to fall out in clumps. Before you knew it, you were seriously balding on top. Forget the thinning of hair; your situation was beyond being a case of simple hair loss or a slow receding hairline. It seemed the more you tried to prevent this problem, the worse it got. You even tried to wear a wig around OKC to hide the fact that your scalp was completely exposed. You were not happy about having to hide your hair loss by such means, but you did not know what else to do at the time. You really were not up-to-date on all the latest hair restoration methods, nor did you think there was much anyone could do for your hair loss. So, your condition went untreated. Then a friend told you about hair transplant procedures. You had never heard of anything like that before, but you were somewhat shocked to learn that the practice had been in use for decades. However, thanks to advancements that have been made in hair restoration, treatment is easier and more effective than ever.
The goal of hair transplant surgery is to take hair attached to follicles from the back of the head, where hair follicles are permanent, and transplant the hair follicles to the top of the scalp where the hair has ceased to grow. It is a procedure that requires precision and care. In general, there are two methods of hair restoration that are considered popular. These methods are Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). FUE has multiple benefits when it comes to hair restoration.
With FUE, the hair restoration expert extracts individual follicles from the donor site. From here, a specialized grafting process takes place in the comfort of our office in the OKC area. The idea is that the replacement follicles will take. The new follicles will eventually reproduce hair again that grows on its own. The great thing is that this hair is your own hair.
