Hair Transplant in Utica, NY

Dr. Sang W. Kim, board-certified surgeon with the Natural Face™ Clinics, offer hair transplants for patients living in or near Utica, NY.

Our Surgeons Offer Both Types of Hair Restoration Techniques

The Strip Harvest Technique

The strip harvest technique is the most common type of follicular unit hair transplantation. Here’s how it is performed: First, a narrow, horizontal strip of hair-bearing scalp is removed. Usually, this strip is less than an inch wide but may run from ear to ear if more extensive hair transplantation is necessary.

After the strip of scalp is removed, the wound is stitched up to promote quick healing and reduce the potential for scarring. The stitches will be removed after 10 days. Once the incision heals, some hair will grow through the scar and other hair will grow around it. As long as the patient keeps his or her hair at least an inch long, the scar will not be noticeable. With the strip harvest technique, more extensive hair transplantation can be done for the same cost, making it an attractive option for some patients.

Follicular Unit Extraction Technique

During a follicular unit extraction, the individual hair follicle is removed from the back of the head and transplanted. When this procedure was previously performed, the hair follicles were removed using very small instruments called punch grafts. This was a complicated and labor-intensive procedure.

Now, however, our surgeons are proud to offer a better option, using NeoGraft® technology, a minimally invasive, machine-assisted process. We are the first and only practice in the area to offer this technology. The NeoGraft® system is a safer, more efficient and more effective technique for follicular unit extraction. We don’t have to make an incision or stitch up the scalp when we use this procedure, eliminating the risk of scarring and leading to a faster recovery.

At Natural Face Clinics, Dr. Kim specialize in aesthetically enhancing the face, head, and neck for residents of Utica, NY. Contact us today to schedule your personal consultation and to find out more.

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.
