What Is a Hair Transplant?

Dr. John Kiely provides hair transplants for patients who live in Arlington, VA. Hair transplants refer to surgeries that replenish the hair on the head. They entail extracting slender portions of hair from behind the head and then placing them on parts of the head that lack hair or that has very little hair. Many people opt for hair transplants as a result of losing hair due to the natural aging process.

What Are the Procedures for Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant procedures exist in several different forms: micro grafting, mini micro grafting, and follicular unit extraction (FUE). Both micro grafting procedures involve donor tissue extraction. Follicular unit extraction, however, involves follicle extraction from behind the head. Once the follicles are successfully removed, they’re singularly transferred to parts of the head dealing with thinning hair problems, such as the scalp’s sides, front, and top portions.

How Do I Know What Treatment Is the Best Option?

Dr. Kiely can assist you in figuring out which form of hair transplant is most appropriate and beneficial for your individual situation. Patients who are concerned about linear scars that could potentially appear due to incisions often opt for follicular unit extraction. Clients who have female or male pattern baldness frequently choose micro grafting or mini-micro grafting procedures. The same applies to patients who have experienced scalp burns and hair loss.
