Hair Transplant in Cortland, NY
Board-certified surgeons Dr. Sang W. Kim of the Natural Face™ Clinics feature hair transplants for patients residing in Cortland, NY.
Our Surgeons Offer Both Types of Hair Restoration Techniques
The Strip Harvest Technique
The ‘Strip Harvest’ technique is considered a more traditional form of ‘follicular’ unit hair transplantation. Using hair from the back of the head, a strip of hear-bearing scalp is removed. Typically narrow (around 1 cm wide), sometimes this can extend from ear to ear depending on the need of hair to be transplanted. Once the strip is removed, the wound is closed with a special ‘suturing’ technique. This technique optimizes healing as well as minimal scarring. After 10 days, the sutures are removed. After the healing of the area occurs some hair will grow through the ‘linear scar’. Surrounding hair will help to cover the rest of the scar leaving it nearly undetectable long as the patient maintains an ‘adequate hair length’. This would be about one inch or longer. One of the biggest pros for this type of hair transplant, as opposed to the ‘follicular’ unit extraction technique, is the same amount of hair can be transplanted at a lower cost.
Follicular Unit Extraction Technique
With the ‘follicular unit extraction technique’, the individual hair follicle is removed from the back of the head and transplanted. Surgeons in the past would use manual instruments (1mm or smaller punch grafts) to secure the needed hair follicles. This extended the time needed to complete the labor-intense process.
Our practice has incorporated the NeoGraft® technology. A minimally invasive and machine assisted hair restoration procedure. We are the first and only hair restoration practice in the Syracuse/Central New York area to offer this technology. The NeoGraft® system offers a safer, more effective, and most efficient way to perform the ‘follicular unit extraction’. When compared to the traditional strip harvest technique, we offer no risk for the linear scar on the back of our patient’s head. With no incisions being made, sutures and staples are not needed. This results in a much quicker recovery time.
