Don’t Lose Your Confidence With Hair Loss

Multiple studies have attributed hair loss to low self-esteem and decreased confidence. One study showed that androgenetic alopecia decreased the quality of life for those experiencing hair loss issues, particularly with the way they see themselves and how they interact with others. 

That is, when hair loss becomes obvious, it may cause embarrassment and prompt you to withdraw from relationships or avoid social gatherings. It may eventually affect the way you deal with your family and friends.

About ATERA FUE Hair Transplant in Fort Worth

Recent studies showed that when you’re experiencing hair loss problems, it can trigger a significant psychological breakdown leading to an exaggerated lowered self-esteem and decreased confidence. 

Experts have found out that the emotional burden of losing one’s hair can have crippling effects on confidence, trigger mental disorders, and may even reduce the quality of life. 

In an old-fashioned way, hair transplants involved invasive surgical procedures that would create linear scars and leave patients with unnatural-looking results. Today, hair transplants have progressed with the advanced hair restoration technologies and techniques that can bring permanent and natural-looking outcomes.

What Is an ATERA FUE Hair Transplant?

Over the years, doctors developed the “plug” technique that requires transplanting large groups of hair. “Hair plugs” are types of hair transplants that involve extracting plugs of up to 20 hair follicles. They often produced an unnatural hairline and a doll-like appearance that left noticeable linear scars and created problems for those who want to cut their hair short. Eventually, hair transplant surgeons began using micrografts to lessen the appearance of transplanted hair on the scalp. 

Nowadays, follicular unit extraction (FUE) is the gold standard in hair restoration techniques. It is performed by extracting hair grafts using 0.6-1.025 millimeter micro punches to extract one to three single hair follicles at a time, then transplanting them to thinning or balding areas of the scalp. These micro punches are so tiny it allows almost no signs of extraction, leaving no scars visible to the naked eye. 

FUE techniques allow patients who want to wear their hair short and benefit from natural-looking hair transplants. Hair restoration doctors may take much more time to perform this procedure than “strip” hair transplant surgery, but it can provide extraordinary results as patients can keep their hair short without fear of noticeable scars.

Benefits of Atera FUE Hair Restoration include:

  • Digital graft counter so you know how many grafts were harvested.
  • Lubricates the root of the hair follicle during extraction.
  • Keeps the grafts lubricated until implantation.
  • Two separate tubings, one for lubrication and the other for graft suction.
  • Faster and more efficient compared to other FUE systems.
  • Lighter handpiece — less trauma and minimal bleeding.
  • Natural results.
  • Minimally invasive.
  • Little or no scarring.
  • Simple aftercare.
  • Quick recovery.
  • Long-lasting.
  • Minimal risk.
  • More comfortable than strip hair surgery.
  • Effective on tight scalps.

All types of hair loss can be treated with ATERA FUE including curly hair which gives an advantage to the African-American community.

Your Personal Hair Restoration Consultation

A skilled and trained hair transplant physician will define various hair loss treatment options available and will recommend which technique will likely offer the best chances of success in your case. 

Dr. Stefan Thiele believes in the importance of the ability to recognize the patient’s condition, opinion, and beliefs. He creates an intimate and harmonious relationship with his patients that helps him understand their feelings and communicate well with them.

Dr. Thiele conducts a preliminary consultation wherein he shows before-and-after pictures of previous patients who have gone through different types of hair restoration treatment. He examines what hair loss methods or treatments you’ve used in the past, as well as the level of success obtained by these treatments. 

After understanding the history of your hair loss, Dr. Thiele can now create a specific plan so you can reap the benefits of a revolutionary hair loss technique. 

Remember, when seeking hair restoration treatment, choose a hair transplant surgeon with vast experience to give you the specialized care you deserve.

Preparation and Procedure

In preparation for the procedure, Dr. Stefan Thiele will give you detailed instructions on how to get ready for hair transplant surgery. It includes guidelines on eating and drinking, smoking and taking or avoiding certain medications. You have to carefully follow these instructions to get your surgery carried out properly. If you’re smoking, it’s important to stop at least a week or two before the procedure because smoking inhibits blood flow to the skin and can interfere with the healing process. During your initial assessment, Dr. Thiele will calculate the number of hair grafts required to determine the duration of treatment. 

The ATERA FUE system moisturizes hair follicles after the extraction process. It keeps the follicular unit primed for grafting and makes the whole process run smoothly. The hand unit can employ three different punch sizes, offering a solution more adaptable to a patient’s specific case than other systems. 

At The Hair Transplant Center – Fort Worth, hair transplant surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis in our office-based facility. It doesn’t require one whole day to complete the procedure as it starts in the morning and usually ends in the afternoon of the same day. 

This is how we prepare for the procedure:

  1. Dr. Thiele or his experienced technicians will trim the donor area on the back of your head.
  2. After that, local anesthesia with sedation is administered over the donor area to make you soothed and relaxed.
  3. After the anesthesia takes effect, Dr. Thiele’s team extracts hair follicles from the donor area using micro punches under 3-5x magnification.
  4. After extraction, the collection system puts them into a staging area that digitally counts the number of extracted follicular units and keeps them optimal for grafting by putting them in a moist, cooled state.
  5. Dr. Thiele and his team will carefully transplant the harvested hair to the recipient site.

Recovery

Most patients can return to work and resume normal, light activity several days after surgery. How soon you return to your regular activities depends on the duration, complexity, the kind of surgery you’ve had, and how well you follow Dr. Thiele’s aftercare instructions. 

You have to understand that it’s normal for the transplanted hair to fall out two to three weeks after the procedure since it makes room for new hair growth. Most patients can see a certain amount of new hair growth eight to 12 months after surgery.

Results

Typically, it’s best to expect that you may need a touch-up procedure to create more natural-looking results. ATERA FUE hair transplants show significant results in restoring a full head of hair that is completely natural-looking. One study showed that participants who have undergone hair restoration treatment perceived themselves as more youthful-looking and attractive. Dr. Thiele’s patients can vouch for these amazing hair transplant results.

Ways to Complement ATERA FUE

ATERA FUE hair transplant surgery is a great option if you’re searching for a way to get fuller hair. If you choose this alternative, then make sure to follow these tips on post-surgery care and maintenance. If you fully understand the process and how to care for your scalp after surgery, you’ll likely increase your chances of having a successful hair transplant! 

  • Diet: After having a hair transplant, eat foods rich in protein to promote faster healing and induce hair regrowth including eggs, beans, tofu, walnuts, fish, and poultry.
  • Vitamins: Supplement with Vitamins E, C, A, and B Complex that has effects on hair health; eat foods rich in iron as they support the immune system and speed up the healing process.
  • Washing: Wash your hair frequently with a healthy shampoo; be gentle to wash your hair using a sponge; prevent towel drying your hair to protect your hair transplant.
  • Gentle hairstyling: Avoid tight hairstyles such as cornrows and pigtails which are linked with increased hair loss; keep your style more gentle.
  • Massage: Massage doesn’t prevent hair loss on its own, but there is some evidence that regular scalp massage helps maintain thicker hair; gently massage the area four or five times a day with an outward swiping motion from the middle of the forehead to the temples to help relieve the swelling.
