FAQs about Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) Hair Transplants

Hair transplants have come a long way since they first burst onto the market, and the results are now extremely natural-looking, without the “teabag” perforation marks which blighted the earliest procedures. Hair loss affects a large proportion of men and women in the UK, and transplants can now be carried out on a range of different sites including the top of the head, the eyebrows and facial hair too. The procedure is very discreet and the resulting appearance looks so natural that no-one will be able to tell that you’ve had a transplant, other than by your thicker and fuller looking hair! Modern hair transplants can be carried out via a couple of different procedures but FUE is one of the most revolutionary, offering excellent results. Here are some of the most common FAQs about Follicular Unit Excision (FUE).

Research reveals Men prize their Hair more than their Memory

A new study has shown that although they may not particularly want to part with either, when it comes to a choice between losing their hair or their memory, men would rather do without the latter. Hair loss can be attributed to many causes and affect women too, but men are far more likely to have to face up to the possibility of losing their luscious locks. Research has shown that loss of hair can have a devastating impact on a man’s confidence and self-esteem, which explains the rocketing popularity of hair transplants. Here’s a closer look at the effect losing their hair can have on a man.
