Hair Transplants *
The nature of male pattern baldness means that most men are ideal candidates for hair transplantation. Because the hair follicles on the sides and back of the scalp are not genetically prone to balding, hair can be harvested from these areas and transplanted into the ‘recipient’ area.
Hair loss in men is typically the result of male pattern baldness. A form of androgenetic alopecia. Male pattern baldness accounts for more than 95% of hair loss in men. Characterized by thinning and/or total hair loss at the top and crown of the head, male pattern baldness is depicted by the Norwood Hamilton Scale to the right.
Recent advances in hair transplant technology are making this state-of-the-art therapy available to more men than ever before.
How Does a Hair Transplant Work?
During a hair transplant, hair is harvested from the donor area and transplanted, in individual follicular units, into the recipient area of the scalp. Our Board Certified hair transplant surgeon harvests hair from areas of the scalp where the patient is least likely to experience hair loss; typically the back and sides of the head below the occipital bone. The harvesting method used during a hair transplant depends upon the type of hair transplant being preformed.
There are two types of hair transplants practiced today: Follicular Unit Transplants (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extractions (FUE). FUT and FUE procedures are very similar techniques, the difference being the method used to extract the hair follicles from the scalp.
Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) (a.k.a. Strip Method)
During a follicular unit transplant, one or more large section of tissue are extracted from the donor area, at the back and/or sides of the scalp. The tissue is then dissected into singular follicular units, typically containing one to four hairs. Once all grafts have been prepared they are implanted into the recipient area through microscopic incisions (sites) in the scalp. Learn more about the FUT process.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
During a follicular unit extraction, individual hair follicles are extracted directly from the donor area, at the back and/or sides of the scalp. The follicles are then prepared and implanted into the recipient area through microscopic incisions (sites) into the scalp. Learn more about the FUE process.
