Bio-enhanced FUE (BE-FUE) is a newer hair transplant technique that involves the use of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and other bio-enhancing materials to improve the success rate of FUE hair transplant. PRP is a natural substance that is obtained from the patient’s own blood and contains growth factors that can stimulate hair growth and improve the overall health of the hair follicles. In this article, we will discuss the success rate of bio-enhanced FUE hair transplant and how it compares to traditional FUE.
Comparison Between Fue Hair Transplant With and Without PRP
One study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology compared the results of FUE hair transplant with and without PRP. The study found that the use of PRP resulted in a higher percentage of hair growth and thicker hair density than FUE alone. Another study published in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery found that the use of PRP in FUE hair transplant resulted in a success rate of 97.4% after 12 months, with an average of 70% increase in hair density.
The use of PRP in bio-enhanced FUE hair transplant can also help to promote faster healing and reduce the risk of complications such as infection and scarring. PRP contains growth factors that can stimulate the body’s natural healing process, resulting in faster recovery and less downtime. Additionally, the use of PRP can help to reduce inflammation and promote healthy hair growth, resulting in a more natural-looking hairline and improved overall hair density.
Other bio-enhancing materials that may be used in bio-enhanced FUE hair transplant include extracellular matrix (ECM) and stem cells. ECM is a natural substance that is derived from porcine bladder tissue and contains proteins that can stimulate tissue regeneration and improve wound healing. ECM can also help to promote healthy hair growth and reduce scarring. Stem cells, on the other hand, are cells that have the ability to differentiate into different types of cells, including hair follicle cells. The use of stem cells in bio-enhanced FUE hair transplant can help to promote faster hair growth and improve the overall health of the hair follicles.
Success Rate of Bio-Fue
The success rate of bio-enhanced FUE hair transplant can depend on several factors, including the patient’s age, hair loss pattern, the quality of the hair grafts, the surgeon’s experience and skill, and the patient’s ability to follow post-operative instructions. However, studies have shown that the use of PRP and other bio-enhancing materials can significantly improve the success rate of FUE hair transplant.
It is important to note that the success rate of bio-enhanced FUE hair transplant can vary depending on the patient’s individual circumstances. Patients with advanced hair loss, for example, may have a lower success rate as they may not have enough donor hair follicles to achieve the desired level of hair restoration. Patients who smoke or have pre-existing medical conditions may also have a higher risk of complications and a lower success rate.
Cost of Bio-Enhanced Fue
In terms of cost, bio-enhanced FUE hair transplants can be more expensive than traditional FUE due to the additional cost of the PRP and other bio-enhancing materials. However, many patients find that the improved success rate and faster recovery time are worth the extra cost.
In conclusion, a bio-enhanced FUE hair transplant can be an effective hair restoration solution for patients who are looking for a minimally invasive, natural-looking hair transplant with a high success rate. The use of PRP and other bio-enhancing materials can help to improve the overall health of the hair follicles, promote faster healing, and reduce the risk of complications. However, it is important to consult with a board-certified hair transplant surgeon to determine if a bio-enhanced FUE hair transplant is the right option for your individual needs and circumstances.
