What is IV Supported Hair Transplantation?
IV Supported Hair Transplantation is a modern technique used in hair restoration surgery. It is a variation of the traditional Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) methods. The main difference between the traditional methods and IV Supported is the use of IV sedation or general anesthesia, to make the procedure more comfortable for the patient.
IV Supported Hair Transplantation begins with the patient receiving IV sedation or general anesthesia. This allows the patient to be relaxed and comfortable throughout the procedure. The surgeon then proceeds with the traditional FUT or FUE method of extracting hair follicles from the donor area and transplanting them into the recipient area.
The use of IV sedation or general anesthesia during the procedure has several benefits. First, it allows the patient to be relaxed and comfortable throughout the procedure, reducing any discomfort or pain. Second, it allows the surgeon to work more efficiently and effectively, resulting in a more precise and successful procedure.
Additionally, IV supported hair transplantation method is suitable for patients who have high levels of anxiety or fear about the procedure, also for those who have a higher pain threshold.
However, IV Supported Hair Transplantation requires a higher level of surgical skill and experience. Additionally, it may be more expensive than the traditional FUT or FUE methods.
Overall, IV Supported Hair Transplantation is a modern technique that offers several benefits over the traditional FUT or FUE methods. It can provide a more comfortable and efficient procedure for the patient. However, it is important to consult with a qualified and experienced hair restoration surgeon to determine if this method is the best choice for you.
