What you need to know about hair transplant procedures


Today, many men and women around New York City have found themselves in need of help due to hair loss and baldness. Hair loss is usually due to chemical changes and hormonal imbalances within the body. Each patient has a unique situation and should be encouraged to discuss hair transplant options with an expert. There are many hair transplant procedures options available within New York City.

The first thing you will want to do is set up an appointment for a consultation. During the consultation discuss your issues and the results you desire to have from receiving a hair transplant procedure. The results of the consultation will determine if you are a good candidate for a specific option. You will be directed to the option that is best suitable for you and provides the best results.

  • Follicular Unit Extraction – This minimally invasive procedure leaves no visible scars. It has a two part procedure which includes first extracting and harvesting hair from the back of the head and second, transplanting the hair into the balding areas. Follicular Unit Extraction requires minimal down time and there are not any bandages or sutures to deal with. The amount of hair needed to fill the balding area will determine the amount of sessions that will be necessary to meet desired results.
  • Follicular Unit Grafting – This procedure is the most popular method for hair transplants in New York City. There is a two step procedure that includes first removing thin strips of hair and creating grafts, which are cut into one hair to two or three hair grafts. The second step requires the grafts to be transplanted into tiny receptor sites within the balding area. This procedure is affordable and at times, can be completed within one office visit. When you are fully recovered from the procedure, scars are very difficult to detect.
  • Eye Brow Hair Transplants – At times, many people may find their eyebrows thinning or balding due to over tweezing, laser hair removal, reactions to medications and many other reasons. Eyebrows frame the face and put focus on your eyes. If you find that you may be a good candidate for Eye Brow Hair Transplants, please discuss it during your initial consultation. There is an option for you to have your eyebrows restored almost to their original look. The procedure is done under mild oral sedation. Thin, fine donor hairs are removed from the back of your scalp. The hairs are then placed one at a time in your eyebrow area to sculpt natural looking brows. The hairs are placed one at a time in a natural growing angle. The procedure takes up three to four hours and provides lifetime results. Within one year you will find that your brows are thicker and natural looking.

New York City has incredible options for those who suffer from baldness. Whether you are a man or woman, you will surely find the best option for you.
