Hair plugs are an obsolete type of hair transplant technique commonly used until the early 2000s.
Some people still use the term “hair plugs” to refer to any type of hair transplant surgery, including modern techniques. FUT and FUE procedures are currently the most commonly performed types of hair transplants.
Historically, the unsightly plug-grafts used in the past were the greatest source of problems. Even with today’s technique using small natural appearing grafts of one to three hairs, errors in technique can create an unnatural result. These include improper angulation of the grafts, poor graft preparation, poor donor site closure, and poor design of the transplanted hairline. The key component of a successful hair transplant is creating a natural appearance, and thorough knowledge of the components of a natural hairline is critical for a successful outcome. However, once an unfavorable result does occur, a logical approach to revisionary surgery is important, as options are often limited.
Achieving a natural look from your transplant depends on many factors, such as anterior hairline design, good density, the direction of implantation, and the use of appropriate follicular units in each location. At Pure Hair Restoration Center, all the above criteria are considered before placing a hair follicle.
If you are considering a revision from an unsuccessful hair transplant or you are a new patient in pursuit of a natural-looking outcome, Pure Hair Restoration Center offers Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) to men and women seeking a solution for hair loss and thinning.
Your real hair will be selected one by one from the back of your head and moved to the desired areas. Get permanent results that look completely natural with no linear scar.
This minimally invasive outpatient procedure extracts follicles one by one with minimal scaring, which is purely unnoticeable. The back of the head is used as a donor site, as it helps minimize discomfort, and genetically, this is where hair grows the best.
Each follicle may contain 2 to 4 hairs and is separated into units. These units are then inserted in an area where the hair is thinning or bald via a small incision. Thousands of hairs can be placed during one treatment session.
Using this technique, Pure Hair Restoration Center has maximized graft survivability, reduced the duration of procedures (improving patient comfort and reducing the time grafts are out of the body), and increased the number of viable FUE grafts that can be harvested while still staying in the safe zone.
