Cleveland FUE Hair Restoration | Cleveland Follicular Unit Extraction

When to consider an FUE hair restoration with Cleveland Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Diana Ponsky

LOCATED IN BEACHWOOD | SERVING CLEVELAND AND NORTHEAST OHIO

Our hairline becomes narrower and higher with time and can impact self-esteem. It is normal to lose about 50-100 hairs each day, but increased loss over time gradually leads to thinning and balding. About 40% of men notice balding by the age of 40, typically along the frontal hairline, and 85% of men will experience hair loss before the age of 50.

Hair loss in women is more common than you think. Forty percent of women may also see hair loss before the age of 40. It may be localized to the frontal region, but most women with female-pattern baldness will start to experience thinning over the crown or top of the head. In women, hair loss may either be diffuse, causing generalized alopecia, or more localized to the frontal region as in men.

Hair is an important expression of personality, youth, and style. Whether it’s short-term or long-term, losing your hair can be stressful. Modern hair transplant techniques like FUE can turn back the clock.

How It Helps


Hair restoration surgery performed by Cleveland facial plastic surgeon Dr. Diana  Ponsky can restore a frontal hairline and add density to the mid scalp and crown area, resulting in thicker hair and a more defined hairline. Most patients who are good candidates for hair transplantation procedures are very pleased with the final results, which appear natural with today’s technology.

Before

What to expect before an eyelid lift

Bring photos of your face from earlier years to compare the shape and position of your original hairline. Your hair growth (and loss) pattern and strand density will be evaluated. Careful examination upfront makes the final result more natural and undetectable.

During

What to expect during FUE hair surgery

Local anesthesia and oral sedation are common during FUE hair surgery. If the frontal hairline is to undergo hair transplantation, Cleveland facial plastic surgeon Dr. Ponsky will work with you to create an improved, natural and age-appropriate profile and hairline. The hair along the back of the head is shaved down with hair clippers and local anesthesia is injected into the scalp. The FUE device is employed to harvest the hair follicles which are kept healthy in cooled saline. The grafts will be implanted into small slits made in the balding area of the scalp, individually placed in the scalp by hand with small forceps, allowing for precise placement and avoidance of noticeable grafts as was common with older techniques

After

What to expect after FUE hair surgery

At the end of the hair restoration procedure, a light dressing is applied overnight and the patient is seen the following day in the office for dressing removal. There is usually minimal discomfort and swelling of the scalp following FUE hair restoration and most patients will take oral pain medication for the first 12-24 hours. You can return to light physical exercise within two weeks and all physical activities within one month. The hair shafts will usually shed within a few weeks following transplantation and begin to grow again beginning at about three months. The final results will be seen within 12-14 months after the procedure, as the hairs grow and thrive, creating a thicker head of hair.
