Las Vegas FUE Hair Transplant

The American Hair Loss Association states that more than two-thirds of men will experience some degree of hair loss by age 35. Depending on the amount of lost hair, it can cause emotional issues and low self esteem for many men.

Men are not the only ones suffering from thinning hair. There are approximately 30 million women experiencing this crippling disease. Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon offers the minimally invasive FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) procedure that looks totally natural. The technology used for this Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method is a state-of-the-art S.A.F.E. Scribe Automated Hair Transplant System.

SURGICAL TECHNIQUE
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) using the S.A.F.E. Scribe technology, is a less invasive approach if you are looking for a Las Vegas hair transplant with no linear scar.  The FUE method removes individual hair follicles from the scalp with the S.A.F.E. Scribe machine operated punch. This mechanical unit used in conjunction with our experience technicians can remove up to twenty five hundred grafts (follicular units) in a one day Las Vegas hair transplant procedure.

The S.A.F.E. Scribe removes groupings of 1-4 hairs which are strategically and artistically transplanted in areas of the scalp where thinning or balding has occurred. The benefit of a Las Vegas FUE hair transplant is that a patient does not have to worry about a linear scar (line) across the  back of the head. This procedure is often chosen by men who wear their hair very tight or short in the back of their head.  It is a favorite among military personnel and the younger generation who prefer a shaved head or fade style haircut.

BEST CANDIDATES

Las Vegas FUE hair transplant patients are those who prefer a less invasive surgical approach. FUE is suitable for both men and women. Men who want hair short and enjoy an active lifestyle would benefit from this approach. FUE is used to restore hair in old linear scars, and is popular for small procedures like eyebrow restoration.

DURING/AFTER SURGERY
FUE is an out patient procedure performed under local anesthesia. The S.A.F.E. Scribe punches out small 1,2,3 and 4 hair grafts. (No scalpel, sutures or staples are used). Dr. Khorsandi artistically creates the recipient sites for a Las Vegas FUE hair transplant masterpiece. His surgical team then implants the individual hairs. Depending on the amount of hair being transplanted, the procedure can take as long as 3-10 hours.

Most patients return to work in 5-7 days. Strenuous activity and exercise including weightlifting, CrossFit, running, should be avoided for about 1-2 weeks to insure the area of implantation is safely healed. Results vary by patient, but most patients will see new hair growth starting at 3-4 months post-op and the new hair will continue filling in the balding area up to a year before the process is complete.

EXPECTED COST
The cost of a Las Vegas FUE hair transplant is based on the amount of grafts needed to restore the thinning or bald areas. The cost can range in price from $3000-$15,000.

FUE OR FUT (STRIP)?
The primary difference between FUE and FUT is the technique used for extracting the grafts. One method is with a punch and the other is with a scalpel to remove the strip. Both methods will give patients more hair in thinning areas.
