Baldness has been impacting men and women for thousands of years, but only recently has hair transplant surgery evolved to allow men and women who are qualified to achieve a new and natural head of hair.
Most modern “mainstream” thinking considers hair restoration surgery old school “hair plugs” or “corn rows”. Many years ago, this was not too far from the truth. Patients who have undergone surgery often ended up with an obvious and unnatural head of “doll hair”, leaving most dissatisfied and depressed. Thankfully, due to recent advancements in surgical techniques called follicular unit hair transplantation, surgery in the hands of an elite physician can produce a full and natural look, leaving no signs of surgery and in most cases, no signs of balding either.
In the last few years, an elite group of surgeons, such as those elite members of the Coalition of Independent Hair Restoration Physicians have revolutionized the industry with “ultra refined follicular unit hair transplantation“. View our high level of patient membership standards for the Coalition by following this link. By trimming smaller “skinny” grafts and making smaller incisions with ultra refined tools a hair replacement surgeon can dense pack follicular unit grafts more closely together into areas of hair loss, almost twice as much as standard follicular unit transplantation. Benefits therefore of ultra refined follicular unit grafting include:
- Dense packing follicular unit grafts closer together when appropriate for the patient
- Larger single hair transplant megasessions requiring fewer procedures for the patient
- Minimizing scalp trauma lessening the risk of “shock loss” of existing “native” or previously transplanted hair.
Is balding affecting your self confidence? Are you considering hair restoration surgery? Speak with a qualified physician to determine whether or not hair replacement surgery is right for you.
