Hair Transplant in Auburn, NY

Dr. Sang W. Kim of the Natural Face™ Clinics is a board-certified surgeon that specialize in hair transplants for patients residing in the greater Auburn, NY area.

Our Practice Offers Two Types of Permanent Hair Restoration Techniques

The Strip Harvest Technique

Strip harvest is the standard technique for follicular unit hair transplantation. A narrow horizontal strip of donor hair-bearing scalp, about one cm in width, is removed from an area at the back of the head. Depending on the amount of hair to be transplanted, the donor strip may extend from ear to ear. After a strip is removed, the scalp area will be sealed with a unique suturing method that optimizes healing while leaving a minimal, fine line of scarring. Ten days after the surgery, the stitches will be removed. After the area heals, it is normal for some hair to grow through the scar tissue. When the surrounding hair at the back of the head is at least one inch in length, it will camouflage the scar and make it nearly undetectable. One major consideration when comparing this method with the follicular unit extraction method is the price. Both techniques transplant the same amount of hair, but the strip harvest method is available at a lower cost.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Technique

Rather than removing a strip of the scalp, FUE is a state-of-the-art method that removes individual hair follicles from the donor area and transplants them to the recipient area. The older procedure of using manual punch graft instruments to harvest the hair follicles required a prolonged, labor-intense process and it is no longer a viable option.

Our FUE process uses the advanced procedure of minimally invasive, machine-assisted NeoGraft® technology for hair restoration. We were the first and remain the exclusive hair restoration practice in the greater Syracuse / Central New York area to provide our community with this technology. The NeoGraft® system is a safer, more effective and very efficient way to perform FUE. One major advantage when comparing FUE with the strip harvest technique is that there is no scar tissue at the back of the head. Without an incision in the scalp, there are no sutures or staples, and this results in a quicker recovery time.

Natural Face™ Clinics specialize in aesthetic gains for the head, neck and face, exclusively for residents throughout the greater Auburn area. Schedule a consultation today for a personal hair transplant analysis with Dr. Kim.

Dr. Sang W. Kim

Harvard Trained, Double Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon

Sang W Kim, MD is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive facial plastic surgery, nasal/sinus surgery, and hair restoration surgery.

I was working in Central New York and had an upcoming event and needed to get 2 areas of Dystport done. They were able to accommodate my schedule( as it was short notice) Dr. Kim’s entire staff was so friendly and welcoming!! During the procedure , even Nurse Dan held my hand and kept me smiling the whole time!! I was incredibly impressed with Dr Kim as he made sure he took the time to explain the process as well as not “ being rushed” something I have experienced with previous Doctors. I live in Florida but will be seeing Dr Kim from now on, and will be recommending their office to my fellow New Yorkers! It’s been almost 2 weeks since my appointment and the results are amazing!!! So happy! Thank you so much Dr Kim, Mary and the rest of the staff !

Dr. Kim is a world-class facial plastic surgeon. I’ve been to the top surgeons in the country from Beverly Hills to Miami and I found Dr. Kim to be superior. His face and neck lift were flawless and so natural that no one could tell I had anything done, but everyone said I looked ten years younger. As Syracuse is a discreet location, I would highly recommend anyone who wants a top notch face and neck lift to fly in. His bedside manner is as fantastic as his work. I can’t recommend Dr. Kim enough. I think he is the best Facial plastic surgeon in the country.

I am very happy with Dr. Kim and all of his staff. Not only did I have a surgical procedure done but I also go there every week for allergy shots and they couldn't be nicer. And Dr. Kim is awesome - - great bedside manner! I highly recommend them!!!

57 years old and wanted to start my new path in life retired...not looking tired! I did extensive research and sought out 5 surgeon recommendations. I was extremely impressed with Dr. Sang Kim for several reasons: 1 - He specialized in and only performs /neck surgeries, 2 - Dr. Kim is younger and probably more newly established, but there was no doubt that he is a perfectionist and a professional in his field, 3 - He is patient and really listens. I felt confident and trusted that he was giving me his best recommendation for my concerns, 4 - He didn't try to push unnecessary or extra procedures, 5 - I was impressed by how obvious it was that Dr. Kim's administrative and medical staff liked him and respected his work. But most of all, I am extremely satisfied with the results of my face lift!

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Kim. He is the most patient, professional, and personable physician I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Instead of being rushed through the practice, every member of his staff made me feel welcome and important from the moment I walked through the door. He wouldn't perform a single procedure on me until he fully answered every minute question I had (all of which he eloquently and candidly answered); you can tell that his formal training was exceptional. His bedside manner and skilled technique easily make him one of the best kept secrets in Syracuse. I have referred numerous friends to him who have also, in turn, referred their friends. Make the consult and see for yourself... you won't be disappointed!

Dr. Kim and his staff were incredible. I had a face lift done this past summer and I was treated with dignity and respect by everyone. Dr. Kim is an exceptional surgeon and one of the nicest and kindest doctors I have ever met. I had a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend Dr. Kim and his entire staff. I recently went back to Dr. Kim for injections. Again my experience was wonderful. He explains everything he is going to do and what to expect. I didn't bruise and I love the fact that he doesn't overdo. He and his staff are just incredible. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.
