Hair loss is a common complaint among the men and women who come to our Tallahassee plastic surgery practice. Whether you’re a man or woman, hair loss can be stressful. It can affect your self-esteem and how you perceive yourself, so we are pleased to offer several effective solutions to hair loss. Our board-certified plastic surgeons offer hair restoration options to help restore your confidence and allow you to feel your best.
Micro-follicular Hair Transplantation
Micro-follicular hair transplantation, or the strip method, is a popular and efficient technique for transplanting hair from areas of the scalp less prone to hair loss to areas where hair has been lost. This helps redistribute the hair to give an overall appearance of fullness.
During a micro-follicular hair transplant, a strip of hair is cut from the scalp; then the strip is sectioned into grafts, which are then surgically implanted where hair is needed. Up to 5,000 hair follicles can be transplanted during a single treatment. This method leaves a scar on the back of the head where the donor hair is harvested, but the scar is easily covered when the hair grows out.
Most patients only require 1 or 2 treatment sessions to achieve their desired results.
Follicular Unit Extraction
Another cutting-edge hair restoration technique we offer at Southeastern Plastic Surgery, P.A. is follicular unit extraction (FUE), which minimizes scarring and increases the success rate of transplantation.
By extracting individual hair follicles and then transplanting them from the donor site to the areas where hair has been lost, you avoid a long scar and reduce the handling required for each follicle, ensuring a greater survival rate for transplanted hair follicles.
Our hair restoration technicians use the FUE device to extract and transplant hair, resulting in hair restoration with minimal downtime and excellent results.
Like micro-follicular hair transplantation, most patients only require 1 or 2 FUE sessions.
