FUE Hair Transplant in Beverly Hills
FUE Hair Transplant Procedure Overview
The Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant is a procedure offered by Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Glenn Vallecillos, that offers a permanent solution for men and women suffering from hair loss also known as alopecia. The Neograft device is designed to harvest and implant individual hair follicles in the most comfortable and efficient method. The advantage of FUE over conventional hair transplantation is that the hair follicles are individually harvested or removed from the scalp, as opposed to surgically removing strips of scalp to harvest the hair, which tends to leave permanent and unsightly scars. The procedure itself is minimally invasive and is typically performed under a local anesthetic.
- Preparation: Dr. Vallecillos may ask that you refrain from taking anti-inflammatory medications and/or medications that contain aspirin to reduce any swelling and/or bruising that may occur.
- Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is used while undergoing a FUE Hair Transplant treatment. The procedure is outpatient, non-surgical, and non-invasive.
- A typical treatment session will last about one hour.
