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 Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

1. Work on the small tasks.

When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

2. Take a break from your work desk.

Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

3. Upgrade yourself

Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

4. Talk to a friend.

Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

6. Paint a vision to work towards.

If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

7. Read a book (or blog).

The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

8. Have a quick nap.

If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

9. Remember why you are doing this.

Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

10. Find some competition.

Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

11. Go exercise.

Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

12. Take a good break.

Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
