There is no ‘cure’ for hair loss. Hair loss is a progressive condition. Medical therapy is designed to stop this progression. But effectively, once you have lost hair, it cannot be grown back.
The only difference between FUE and FUT is how the grafts are ‘harvested’ from the back of the head. There is essentially no difference in outcome in terms of what the result will be. Neither technique is superior to the other. Each has its’ own advantages and disadvantages, and as such it is best to have a consultation to discuss your individual needs and which technique is most appropriate and suited for your needs.
Medication and surgery achieve different things. Medication is designed to stop the progression of hair loss whilst surgery is designed to add hair to a particular area. Both types of therapy work in conjunction to give you the best outcome.

This can vary due to lots of different factors such as area to be covered, existing hair density, skin color, hair color and hair curl to name a few.

How long is a piece of string? It will take as long as it needs to take. Each person is an individual, and their hair and skin characteristics will determine in certain cases how long the procedure will go on for.

It really depends on the area where we are transplanting into. Generally, if we are working on the frontal hairline, it is safe to expect some swelling. That said, with new developments in tumescent solutions and the use of sprays and ice post surgery, any swelling is limited and short-lived.
