Hair loss can be a stressful condition to cope with, especially for young men in their thirties. Hair found on your pillow case in the morning is an example of the evidence you want to escape. Hair loss can deteriorate your self image and may cause you to hide under a hat. Dr. Kassir performs both follicular unit transplant (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE) to restore a full head of hair. FUT is a technique that utilizes a linear incision on the back of the head to extract a donor site. Grafts are precisely taken from the donor site and placed within a micro incision made on the scalp. FUE differs from FUT in that a donor region is achieved by obtaining individual, healthy, follicles. Therefore, no linear incision is made resulting in less recovery time and less pain. FUT and FUE will both produce natural looking results within 3 months to 1 year, the only difference between the procedures is the technique utilized to obtain a donor grafts. If there is little to no hair at the back of the head, a patient will most likely have to get an FUE surgery to optimize the amount of grafts to be used. Many people are hesitant to get a hair restoration procedure because they feel that the results will not look natural. For the best results of a hair transplant, it is important to go to an experienced plastic surgeon. Dr. Kassir is a triple board certified plastic surgeon that has been in practice for 22 years, having performed over 12,000 surgeries.
