Hair Transplant in Ithaca, NY

If you are constantly frustrated by thinning hair in or around the Ithaca, New York area, there is hope for you to have the full head of hair that you have always wanted, even if you have already tried techniques in other areas that simply didn’t work out for you. At Natural Face™ Clinics, board-certified surgeon Dr. Sang W. Kim are waiting with the latest technology to help you get that full, beautiful head of hair that you’ve dreamed about having since it started thinning so many years ago. In fact, we specialize in both the follicular unit extraction technique and the strip harvesting technique, both of which have been proven to work well for decades.

Strip Harvest Technique

This is the technique that has been in use for so many years and it has proven to be effective time and again. Typically, a strip of hair is removed from the scalp, near the base of the skull. That hair is then transplanted to another area of the scalp where hair is having trouble growing. Soon, the transplanted region takes hold, and once the hair grows out, it is almost impossible to see the scar from the original procedure. More often than not, the incision is only about 1 centimeter wide and is stitched up using a special technique that allows it to heal much more quickly and with less scarring than traditional techniques.

Follicular Unit Extraction Technique

This is like a much more detailed version of the strip harvest technique. Instead of removing an entire strip of the scalp, individual follicles are transplanted, hence its name. This is sometimes more effective than the other technique, and it results in less scarring. However, it can take a much longer amount of time to effectively transplant all the hair that needs to be moved in order to see results. The difference is that when you make an appointment at Natural Face™ Clinics, Dr. Kim is capable of transforming this technique into something that you might not experience in any other location. It is known as the NeoGraft® technique. Essentially, it uses a machine to perform the follicular unit extraction technique as opposed to doing it by hand. This speeds up the process and makes the results more effective. It also practically guarantees that you won’t have to deal with scarring.

Of course, no one wants to deal with thinning hair or bald spots. A hair transplant can change all of that. It can help take years off your appearance and make you feel as if you are as young as you look. If you live in Ithaca and are tired of dealing with issues surrounding your thinning hair, do not hesitate to contact us to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kim at Natural Face™ Clinics right away.

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.
