Baldness is a condition that very few men look forward to experiencing. Not only can balding affect your confidence, but it can also add years to your actual age. If you’ve dreamed of having a full head of hair again, the breakthrough FUE Procedure could be the perfect solution. Here are some important facts to know about the FUE Procedure.
What is FUE?
FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction. It’s a method that involves harvesting donor hair directly from other areas of the scalp. The follicle units are surgically removed one by one, which differentiates FUE from traditional hair transplant procedures. Our experienced physician, Zack N. Charkawi, M.D., takes the time to carefully restore your hairline. After about three months, your new hair growth should begin to emerge. Clients love the natural-looking results. Because the FUE Procedure is minimally invasive, you can return to work the next day.
Who’s a Good Candidate for FUE?
When baldness starts to noticeably impact your physical appearance, it’s time to seek a permanent solution. Men experiencing hereditary baldness are certainly good candidates for the FUE Procedure. However, you will need to have adequate donor hair in order for FUE to be successfully performed. Of course, your previous medical therapy must be evaluated as well. Men’s Anti-Aging Clinic of Atlanta will advise you on the best approach to take.
What to Expect After the Procedure?
After getting the FUE Procedure, it’s not unusual for clients to experience just a few minor side effects. However, recovery tends to be very fast. Any redness or swelling should quickly subside within a few days. Although you won’t need to make any major lifestyle changes, you should avoid touching the recipient area. Clients should also temporarily refrain from intense activities that may cause excessive sweating.
Dr. Charkawi’s practice is located in Johns Creek near the Peachtree Parkway (Highway 141) and McGinnis Ferry Road intersections, directly across from Emory Johns Creek Hospital on Hospital Parkway. Zack N. Charkawi, M.D. is accepting new patients from South Forsyth, Gwinnett and North Fulton counties and the surrounding North Atlanta areas such as Alpharetta, Cumming, Roswell, Suwanee, Johns Creek, Duluth, and Dawsonville to name a few.
