Board-certified surgeon Dr. Sang W. Kim of the Natural Face™ Clinics feature hair transplants for patients residing in Cheektowaga, NY.
Our talented surgeons offer 2 types of effective Hair Restoration Techniques.
The Strip Harvest Technique
Follicular unit hair transplantation is the traditional form called the Strip Harvest Technique. This technique entails removing a strip of scalp approximately 1 cm wide from the back of the head. It may extend from ear to ear. This depends solely on the amount of transplantation proposed.
Once the strip has been removed, the incision line is closed in a meticulous manner with a specific special suture technique. This is meant to optimize the healing process with minimal scarring. When the area heals completely, some hair will begin to emerge through the scar tissue rendering it invisible so long as the patient maintains hair length of at least 2 inches or more.
The main advantage to the Strip Harvest Technique is that the same amount of hair can be transplanted more economically for the patient than the Follicular Unit Extraction Technique.
Follicular Unit Extraction Technique
This technique used to be a more labor-intensive process. The surgeon would have to remove each hair follicle and transplant it. Normally a manual punch tool has been typically used. The healing process was also extended and could be more uncomfortable for the patient for a longer period of time. It was also more expensive.
Our surgical facility has now incorporated NeoGraft®. This process is machine assisted and is less invasive than the aforementioned traditional methods. We are not only the first to use this procedure in Syracuse/Central New York, but it is exclusive to us. NeoGraft® is a faster and much more efficient way of follicular unit extraction. The procedure offers patients the freedom from the linear scarring. The surgical incision is made in the scalp, there is no need for sutures or staple techniques to close the incision. The recovery time is also accelerated making it easier for the patient to get on with their life and routine much easier.
