What Does Miami FUE Feel Like?
In Beautiful, sunny Miami, FUE hair transplants involve redistribution of existing hair follicles from one area of the scalp to another where there is no hair or less density.
The process is classified as a surgery, though it is a minimally invasive, micro-surgery. Previous FUT methods were known as strip surgery because they utilized a surgically excised strip of scalp from the back of the head. With modern FUE approaches using a tiny punch tool to extract tissue cylinders less than 1mm wide, this surgery is the least traumatic option for the scalp yet.
Is this going to hurt? This common question is a fair one,and our patients will often ask whether their hair transplant surgery will be painful. Of course, discomfort is experienced somewhat subjectively, and each person may give you a unique answer, but in general, this is not described as a painful process.
During the surgery itself,a local anesthetic is used to numb the scalp tissue completely. This is typically injected after a topical numbing cream is applied. There is a chance you’ll feel a pinprick sensation during this initial freezing,but your hair transplant surgeon will do their best to keep you completely comfortable throughout.
