Hair Restoration

Also called hair transplant surgery, hair restoration surgery involves surgically removing hair follicles from one area (usually the back of the head) and transferring them to bald or thinning areas of the head or eyebrows. Because hair grows in groups of one to three follicles, it can be transplanted in these small increments and placed close together for natural-looking results. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) devices are typically used to perform this process. A strip graft is another surgical method. Because the patient’s own hair is used, the grafts are not rejected by the body. People with available donor areas on the back and sides of their heads are good candidates for this procedure. An individual with very little hair might not benefit from hair transplant surgery. Preparation may include a detailed history of medical issues such as hypertension, blood clotting problems, and abnormal scar tendencies, followed by medication history and physical examination.
