Follicular Unit Transplant NYC - (212)-644-9494 - New York, NY

Why choose Follicular Unit Transplant?
1. Higher density

The goal of a hair transplant is to introduce the maximum amount of hairs in the tiniest possible volume.
The careful cutting using a microscope allows us to remove all the skin and fat in the follicle and also to remove the conjunctive tissue found between the follicles.

This enables us to implant a higher number of hairs in a delimited area.
Depending on graft thickness, which is determined by the number of hairs that a graft contains, we will be able to transplant 35 to 45 grafts for every cm which means 45 to 80 hairs for every cm.

2. A natural look

The grafts are classified, during cutting, according to the number of hairs that they contain.

There are 3 types.

The "singles" group, which contain one hair. These grafts are placed in the first rows of the front hair line.
The "doubles" group, placed just behind the "singles"
The " three, four or more hairs" group. These grafts are exclusively placed inside the recipient area. This judicious use of grafts is the only technique which results in a totally natural aspect
Les greffes sont rangées, lors de la découpe, en fonction du nombre de cheveux qu'elles contiennent.

3. Each follicle is respected and thus growth levels are very high

Several comparisons were made regarding growth level depending on the different cutting techniques applied.
Nowadays, the use of microscopes allows us to avoid any type of waste.
The percentage of growing hair varies from 95% to 98% when prepared under microscopes.

Cutting hair using magnifying lenses or without any visual aids at all rarely yields a good result. The best way to illustrate this is with the cutting of grafts containing white hair.

Actually, the root of these hairs is transparent and it is totally impossible to see them without using a microscope! Without the aid of a microscope the degree of trans-section will inevitably rise, resulting in a waste of hair.

The number of transferable grafts is somewhere between 6,000 and 10,000.
Any loss is dramatic, because it is disappointing for the patient. Moreover the hair loss undermines the success of future grafts, as it exhausts the donor zone unnecessarily.
4. Treatment of hairy areas

Incisions are tiny and precise. It is thus also possible to treat areas which are not completely bald.

You can have a hair transplant at any time. These days you no longer need to be fully bald to have one.

5. Absence of any scars at the root of transplanted hair

When blunt instruments are used, which damage tissue or when punches are used to make the incisions, you will notice tiny ugly scars at the root of each graft.

When incisions are made with sharp instruments, the scar goes undetected.
