Hair Transplant in Cheektowaga, NY

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.

At Natural Face™ Clinics, Dr. Kim specialize in face, neck, and head procedures exclusively for those living in Cheektowaga, NY. Contact the center today to find out more about these and more hair transplant and cosmetic surgery options.

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.
