Do Good H.A.I.R.
Hair restoration is one of the fastest growing cosmetic procedures available to enhance aesthetic beauty. Due to modern techniques, a new era of hair restoration has emerged. Hair restoration through hair transplant surgery simply involves transplanting hairs and follicles from one area of the head to another to permanently restore areas of thinning and balding. Today's transplantation appears exceedingly natural and is almost completely undetectable.

The standard donor strip follicular unit transplantation method involves surgically removing a strip of scalp from the bald resistant donor area of the patient, for example, the back of the head. The area is then sutured and the stitches are removed two weeks after the procedure. This method allows Dr. Harris to move large numbers of grafts/hairs to the thinning area.

During the outpatient procedure of hair restoration, patients remain awake for a typical surgery lasting from four to eight hours. Many patients return to work or their daily routine one to two days after the surgery. The healing process ranges between five to seven days with the patient participating in minimal activity. Most patients see active hair growth starting three months after the procedure.

Step 1 Planning your procedure

Dr. Harris and his team of specialists start the procedure day reviewing your specific goals discussed during your initial consultation. He will map out an action plan and locate the area of donor hair follicles.

 

 

Step 2 Anesthesia and donor hair removal

Anesthesia and donor hair removal

Dr. Harris injects a local aesthetic into the area where hair follicles will be extracted. He then removes the donor hair by NeoGraft technology or by donor strip. If a donor strip is needed, Dr. Harris will then suture the area, leaving a very thin, fine scar which is hidden by existing hair.

 

 

Step 3 Separating the hair follicles

Hair naturally grows in follicles that contain groupings of one to four hair "follicular units." Our hair restoration technicians, using a microscope, separate the hair grafts into these units. Excess fibrous and fatty tissue is carefully removed leaving the follicular cells undamaged.

 

 

 

Step 4 Preparing the recipient sites

Preparing the recipient sites

Dr. Harris administers a local anesthetic into the area where the follicular units will be placed. He then uses very small micro blades to puncture the sites for receiving the grafts, with a specific angle, density and pattern allowing a realistic, natural look for each individual's hairline.

 

 

Step 5 Placement of grafts

Our hair restoration team completes the final step of placing the follicular units, consisting of a single hair or units of two to three hairs, in the recipient sites. The Center for Aesthetic Modernism's surgical hair restoration team has years of experience in performing successful and natural looking transplants on both men and women.
