Is it possible to implant long hair?

We are aware that alopecia is a disorder that affects about 50% of people starting at the age of 30, and that as people age, the issue gets more noticeable. As a result, finding new methods to manage hair loss and lessen the impacts of baldness is becoming more and more common

The FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplant method is still effective methods against baldness, but with some improved details that we will discuss next.

The most cutting-edge methods for hair transplanting:

Let’s review the steps involved in the FUE hair transplant procedure. Using a punch, the follicular units are first retrieved one by one from the donor area.

Then, using an additional tool called an implant, the follicles are positioned in the region to be treated.

Typically, shaving the head is required before this treatment since very short hair makes extraction and implantation easier.

However, professionals that perform hair transplants all around the world have created specialised instruments with features that make it easier to perform the procedure without shaving the hair.

How is the long hair transplant done?
Long hair transplants enable the transfer of the follicles and the hair shaft while preserving an approximate length of up to 5 cm.

Sounds easy, doesn’t it?
It is with specialized methods and the required surgical competence.

Long hair transplantation follows a similar procedure to the FUE method.

The two key differences are as follows:
The tools used in the extraction
Long hair is introduced into a punch and implanter that feature a lateral aperture to make it easier to remove and position the follicles without the stem tangling up with the rest of the hair.

Doctors’ knowledge
In order to harvest only the essential follicular units during this surgery and avoid harming the surrounding hair in the donor location, the doctor must have a very precise vision.

Patients find lengthy hair transplants more appealing because they don’t have to shave or modify their looks, and the signs of surgery are barely noticeable:

Long hair around the extractions covers any scars from the donor area.

Patients can immediately see what long hair looks like where alopecia once was.

Others will note that it has more hair the next day, but they won’t be able to see the scabs from the treatment with their unaided eyes.

This job is undoubtedly more tiring on the personnel participating in the treatment because more time than usual is needed to extract each follicular unit.

As a result, there can be less transplanted follicles than there would be if the hair were shaven.

As a result, the patient might need to undergo a second surgery to achieve the necessary density in the treatment area

Implant recovery and development
In terms of maintenance, healing, and development, we must say that hair implants adhere to the same procedure as the FUE technique:

Yes, without a doubt, even follicles implanted with long hair experience a stage of shock loss or effluvium. The hair shafts can be seen between the first and third month following implantation because the follicle switches from the anagen phase of growth to the telogen phase of loss to restart the life cycle of hair. You can then notice newly grown hair at the end of a year, roughly.

Without a question, this is going to be one of the therapies that is popular over the next five years.
