Hair Transplant in Skaneateles, NY
The Natural Face™ Clinics’ focus on providing hair transplants to those living in the Skaneateles area of New York. Dr. Kim specialize in various hair restoration treatment techniques. The following are a few of the techniques used by Dr. Kim.
The Strip Harvest Technique
The strip harvest technique is a traditional hair transplant technique involving the follicular unit. This treatment is accomplished by removing hair from the back of the head and transplanting it to a different area. The amount of hair taken depends on the amount of hair needed to perform the transplant to another area. After a strip of hair is removed from the back of the head, the surgeon closes the wound with the goal of minimizing the amount of scarring present. Sutures are usually removed 10 days following surgery. Hair will begin to grow through the scar as the area heals. The growing hair helps to camouflage the scar. One of the advantages of the strip harvest technique, when compared to other techniques, is that the same amount of hair can be transplanted at a much lower cost to the transplant patient.
Follicular Unit Extraction Technique
The follicular unit extraction technique involves removing individual hair follicles from the back of a patient’s head for transplantation. Surgeons usually rely on manual instruments (punch grafts) to harvest the hair follicles. The follicular unit extraction technique is intense and more expensive than the strip harvest technique.
Natural Face™ Clinics also incorporate NeoGraft® technology into their practice. This technology involves the use of a machine to help with the hair transplant and restoration process. The NeoGraft® system is minimally invasive and more efficient than other techniques. No incisions are made on the scalp during the process, therefore, sutures and staples are not needed. One of the benefits of the NeoGraft® system is that there is no risk of linear scarring when the hair restoration transplantation is performed.
