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.

At Natural Face™ Clinics, Dr. Kim specialize in aesthetic enhancements of the face, head, and neck. If you live in Cortland, find out more by contacting us to schedule your personal hair transplant consultation today.

TESTIMONIALS
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.

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.
