Hair Transplant in Clarence, NY

Board-certified surgeon Dr. Sang W. Kim of the Natural Face™ Clinics feature hair transplants for patients residing in Clarence, NY. Offering both types of hair restoration techniques, the Strip Harvest, and Follicular Unit Extraction. The choice of which method will be made in consultation with your surgeon.

The Strip Harvest Technique

The strip harvest technique is the traditional method of follicular hair transplant. While the patient is under a local or mild sedative, the surgeon will remove a strip of the scalp including the hair and follicles from the back or side of your head. This strip is usually very narrow, (about a third of an inch), but its length can vary from a few inches or run from ear to ear.

Once the scalp strip is harvested, the wound is cleaned and closed with sutures using a technique to maximize healing and reduce scarring. These sutures will stay in place for about 10 days when the surgeon will remove them. While some hair will grow back through the strip that was removed, the surrounding hair will cover the scar as long as it is kept at least an inch or so long.

The main advantage of the strip harvest technique is the lower cost compared to the follicular unit extraction method.

Follicular Unit Extraction Technique

While the strip harvest method removes a strip of scalp the follicular unit extraction technique removes individual hair follicles from the back of the head. Before new technology came along, surgeons had to use manual punch tools to extract the follicle. The punches used only removed a plug of 1mm or smaller which meant the process was time-consuming and labor intensive.

Now, Dr. Kim use the advanced machine-assisted NeoGraft® technology resulting in a minimally invasive hair restoration procedure. The NeoGraft® system is safer, and more effective and efficient method available to perform a follicular unit extraction.

In contrast to the strip harvest method, the follicular unit extraction leaves no linear scar on the back of the head. Additionally, since there is no incision made, there is no need for sutures or staples and no scarring. The recovery time is faster and discomfort minimal.

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.
