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.
