This is what you need to know about FUE Hair Transplant

This is what you need to know about FUE Hair Transplant

As we know, for many genetic, environmental, and physiological reasons, it is not always possible to have or maintain an abundant amount of hair on the head; unfortunately this is a very common condition that is not possible to prevent. Nowadays, there are many products that promise to prevent or stop hair loss, but there are also other ways or medical methods (surgeries) for hair implants, and covering baldness.

You might not have heard about this topic too much so, let’s be clearer. According to the professionals of Harley Street Hair Clinic, FUE, or Follicular Unit Extraction (sometimes it is also referred to as Follicular Unit Transplantation) is a hair transplant surgery that involves extracting individual hair, usually from the sides and back of the head.

This is How This Procedure Works

FUE Hair Transplant is a minimal surgical procedure that involves removing healthy hair follicles from another donor area and grafting them one-by-one into the bald areas of the head. Experts say that this is a typical procedure that takes about eight hours and it is not painful.

It starts by applying a local anesthetic, which is injected into the donor area, then the desired number of hairs are extracted one by one from it. Then, the balding area is also anesthetized, and numerous micro-incisions are made using a specially shaped micro-needle. Finally, the grafts are placed into these incisions. It sounds pretty simple, and it actually is.

It is really recommended that you take your time to find the most professional clinics and surgeons. Despite the fact that this is a minor surgery, you still have to do some research and take some advice before making a decision.

Here are Some Advantages to This Procedure

  • It doesn’t leave distinctive scars.
  • Shorter recovery time than other procedures (it takes less than a week).
  • Natural look and results.
  • General anesthesia is not necessary, only local anesthesia is used.
  • You can have multiple interventions in a few days. As there are no seams in the donor’s area; the extraction of follicles can continue as long as the patient wants.
  • It needs less manpower than other methods or surgeries; just one doctor with one or two assistants can run a proper procedure.

What About the Cons?

  • It doesn’t hurt too much, but it can be uncomfortable because of the length of time it takes.
  • It’s not cheap (an average procedure costs around $11,000).
  • It takes longer to make each graft, which prolongs the total time and number of follicles that can be removed and implanted each day. This is one of the reasons why it costs more FUE technique.
  • For procedures of more than 1000 follicular units it is necessary to shave the head. There are many men and woman who get rejected to take the procedure because they simply didn’t want to shave their heads. But everybody think that it is definitely worth.

In Conclusion

The Follicular Unit Extraction is an exciting scientific and medical step. The promise of having an almost scarless surgery is enticing to both patient and surgeon, and it has been simplified. The reasons people are selecting FUE rather than other methods may be the avoidance of a linear scar, short recovery time, the desire for a naturally pain-free post-operation period, or, simply the idea of having a minimally invasive procedure.

This technique can definitely be considered as an important alternative to all those traditional hair transplant procedures for certain selected patients. Technology is making big steps in many areas, and the medical area is one of the most important ones.

Everything that can be made with the purpose of looking for human wellness should be supported.

How to Take Control of Your Life with Better Boundaries

How to Take Control of Your Life with Better Boundaries

We all have them—those hurtful, frustrating, offensive, manipulative people in our lives. No matter how hard we try to surround ourselves with positive and kind people, there will always be those who will disrespect, insult, berate, and misuse you if we allow them to.

We may, for a variety of reasons, not be able to avoid them, but we can determine how we interact with them and how we allow them to interact with us.

So, how to take control of your life and stop being pushed around?

Learning to set clear firm boundaries with the people in our lives at work and in our personal lives is the best way to protect ourselves from the negative effects of this kind of behavior.

What Boundaries Are (And What They’re Not)

Boundaries are limits

—they are not threats or ultimatums. Boundaries inform or teach. They are not a form of punishment.

Boundaries are firm lines—determined by you—which cannot be crossed by those around you. They are guidelines for how you will allow others to treat you and what kind of behaviors you will expect.

Healthy personal boundaries help protect you from physical or emotional pain. You may also need to set firm boundaries at work to ensure you and your time are not disrespected. Don’t allow others to take advantage of your kindness and generosity.

Clear boundaries communicate to others that you demand respect and consideration—that you are willing to stand up for yourself and that you will not be a doormat for anyone. They are a “no trespassing” sign that makes it very clear when a line has been crossed and that there will be consequences for doing so.

Boundaries are not set with the intention of changing other people. They may change how people interact with you, but they are more about enforcing your needs than attempting to change the general behavior and attitude of others.

How to Establish Boundaries and Take Control of Your Life

Here are some ways that you can establish boundaries and take control of your life.

1. Self-Awareness Comes First

Before you can establish boundaries with others, you first need to understand what your needs are.

You are entitled to respect. You have the right to protect yourself from inappropriate or offensive behavior. Setting boundaries is a way of honoring your needs.

To set appropriate boundaries, you need to be clear about what healthy behaviors look like—what healthy relationships look like.

You first have to become more aware of your feelings and honest with yourself about your expectations and what you feel is appropriate behavior:

  • Where do you need to establish better boundaries?
  • When do you feel disrespected?
  • When do you feel violated, frustrated, or angered by the behavior of others?
  • In what situations do you feel you are being mistreated or taken advantage of?
  • When do you want to be alone?
  • How much space do you need?

You need to honor your own needs and boundaries before you can expect others to honor them. This allows you to take control of your life.

2. Clear Communication Is Essential

Inform others clearly and directly what your expectations are. It is essential to have clear communication if you want others to respect your boundaries. Explain in an honest and respectful tone what you find offensive or unacceptable.

Many people simply aren’t aware that they are behaving inappropriately. They may never have been taught proper manners or consideration for others.

3. Be Specific but Don’t Blame

Taking a blaming or punishing attitude automatically puts people on the defensive. People will not listen when they feel attacked. It’s part of human nature.

That said, you do not need to overexplain or defend yourself. Boundaries are not open to compromise.

Sample language:

Advertising

  • “You may not…yell or raise your voice to me…”
  • “I need…to be treated with respect…”
  • “It’s not okay when…you take things from my desk without asking…”
  • “I won’t…do your work…cover for you anymore…”
  • “It’s not acceptable when…you ridicule or insult me…”
  • “I am uncomfortable when…you use offensive language”
  • “I will no longer be able to…lend you money…”

Being able to communicate these without sounding accusatory is essential if you want others to respect your boundaries so you can take control of your life.

4. Consequences Are Often Necessary

Determine what the appropriate consequences will be when boundaries are crossed. If it’s appropriate, be clear about those consequences upfront when communicating those boundaries to others.

Follow through. People won’t respect your boundaries if you don’t enforce them.

Standing our ground and forcing consequences doesn’t come easily to us. We want to be nice. We want people to like us, but we shouldn’t have to trade our self-respect to gain friends or to achieve success.

We may be tempted to let minor disrespect slide to avoid conflict, but as the familiar saying goes, “if you give people an inch, they’ll take a mile.”

It’s much easier to address offensive or inappropriate behavior now than to wait until that behavior has gotten completely out of hand.

It’s also important to remember that positive reinforcement is even more powerful than negative consequences. When people do alter the way they treat you, acknowledge it. Let people know that you notice and appreciate their efforts.

Final Thoughts

Respect is always a valid reason for setting a boundary. Don’t defend yourself or your needs. Boundaries are often necessary to protect your time, your space, and your feelings. And these are essential if you want to take control of your life.

Start with the easiest boundaries first. Setting boundaries is a skill that needs to be practiced. Enlist support from others if necessary. Inform people immediately when they have crossed the line.

Don’t wait. Communicate politely and directly. Be clear about the consequences and follow them through.

The better you become at setting your own boundaries, the better you become at recognizing and respecting the boundaries of others.

Remember that establishing boundaries is your right. You are entitled to respect. You can’t control how other people behave, but you do have control over the way you allow people to treat you.

Learning to set boundaries is not always easy, but with time, it will become more comfortable. You may eventually find that boundaries become automatic and you no longer need to consciously set them.

They will simply become a natural extension of your self-respect.
