NJ Hair Transplant Center: Best Hair Restoration Methods

There are two types of hair transplant procedures that are “state-of-the-art” in use today.

The traditional method, popular for the past 25 years, is the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT), whereby a strip of donor scalp is removed from the back of the head, sectioned and placed under microscopes. My nurses (all registered RNs) remove the individual follicular units containing one to four hairs.

Alternately, in the Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) method, the individual follicular units are “punched out” with a cookie-cutter-like instrument measuring only one millimeter or less. To achieve this, the surgeon can do it by hand, which is difficult, because it is both tedious and tiring, or a drill called Neograft can be used to make this task easier. For my FUE procedures, I was the first surgeon in New Jersey to use the ARTAS ROBOT. This is the most advanced, futuristic technology available. It not only facilitates the FUE procedure, it creates more pristine grafts, because it adjusts to variations in the way hair exits the scalp, in microseconds, and, of course, it never tires.

The FUT method does leave a linear scar in the back of the scalp, but in most cases, it won’t be noticed unless your hair is cut very short. The FUE method is not completely scarless because it leaves tiny dots in the donor scalp, but the head would have to be shaved for this to be seen. Whichever method is used, however, the results obtained today are quite natural and undetectable.

Who Is A Candidate For A Hair Transplant

The obvious candidate for a hair transplant is someone who has lost hair. There are, however, many factors the patient and physician must consider.

Age is a significant factor in considering a surgical approach. The cut-off age commonly suggested is 22. The reasoning is that by this age the degree of future balding might best be evaluated. Like with all rules, there are exceptions, but, in general, early twenties works for most people. At the other extreme, being too old is something to consider, but there is a difference in one’s chronological and biological age. I’ve transplanted a few people in their early 80s with very satisfactory results.

Family history should be considered, because the more baldness in one’s family, the more likely you’ll be affected. It isn’t that common, however, to lose your hair exactly like a close family member.

Self-image is most important. How you feel about yourself should be a major factor in selecting anything you might do to improve your appearance. Along with this is the “expectation” you may have about how much you can achieve with any cosmetic procedure. A very bald 60 year old can never regain the hair density of a teenager.

There are medical considerations. Assuming good health, one must have enough donor hair to make the transplant worthwhile. There are some patients who aren’t good candidates because of poor donor density or some physical problem that might may a surgical procedure risky.

Finally, there are financial considerations. Cosmetic surgery is expensive, so you should have a realistic expectation of cost, especially if more than one session is required. If you would like to find out more about your options please visit our New Jersey hair transplant center for a consultation.

Hair Transplant Cost

New Jersey hair transplant costs essentially depend upon the size of the balding area that needs filling in. Costs vary in different geographic locations and with variations in fees set by individual physicians. While I try to limit repetitive sessions, more than one may be required to enhance density and/or to fill in future balding areas.

The fee schedules at my New Jersey Hair Transplant Center are:

For FUT sessions: $5/graft for up to 1,500 grafts. From 1,501 to 2,000 grafts, the charge is $4.50/graft and after 2,000, the cost per graft drops to $4.

For ROBOTIC FUE sessions: $10/graft up to 500 grafts, $9/graft from 501 to 800 grafts, $8/graft from 801 to 1,100 grafts, $7/graft from 1,101 to 1,400 grafts and $6/graft for those over 1,401

I require a deposit for a scheduled appointment and I can arrange for payment plans, if required.

To learn more about costs and options at the New Jersey Hair Replacement Center, please book a consultation with us.

There is a $150 fee for a hair transplant consultation which will be credited toward your first session.

Benefits

The benefits of a hair transplant are obvious. You have more hair! It’s all about self-image. You should look and feel much better about yourself.

Procedure

The hair transplant procedures used in my FUT/FUE NEW JERSEY HAIR TRANSPLANT CENTER are the two transplant methods favored by most surgeons today.

The science of hair transplantation has not changed since Dr. Norman Orentreich performed it first in the mid 1950’s. Donor hair follicles located on the back of the scalp have the potential to grow hair for most of one’s lifetime. If these follicles are removed from this area and moved anywhere else on the same person’s body, they will continue to produce hair. Because of their genetic profile, the follicles should recycle (about every six to eight years) and survive.

Hair follicles can be harvested under microscopes from a strip removed from the back of the scalp, a Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT), or harvested by “punching out” the individual units, a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).

Recovery

The recovery time for the hair transplant procedure can be thought of in “medical” and “cosmetic” terms. Medically, there may be some discomfort the first night, but the healing process is quick,, usually taking a few days. With proper aftercare, the only obvious signs of the surgery should be the short transplanted hairs that do go into “transplant shock” and fall out over a three week period. When a lot of grafts are placed in the front of the scalp, swelling of the forehead (and occasionally around the eyes) may occur after a few days, but disappears in a few days. Post-op bleeding and infection is rare. Cosmetically, the transplanted areas are usually obvious for one to three weeks, but a hat can be used to cover. In the FUT procedure, the donor area on the back of the scalp can’t be seen because the surrounding hair covers completely. In the FUE procedure, unless the overlying hair is long, the donor scalp is obvious for about seven to ten days because the area has been shaved.

FAQs

What’s FUT?

It stands for FOLLICULAR UNIT TRANSPLANT and since the early 90’s, this has been the traditional method of HARVESTING follicular units (FUs). Hair grafts (a.k.a. FOLLICULAR UNITS) are removed from the back of the scalp (rear fringe or “safe area”). Hair follicles located there are capable of growing hair for most of a person’s lifetime. Even the baldest individual will always have a narrow “fringe”.

 

What Is The FUT Procedure Like?

The donor hair is trimmed creating a strip about ¼ inch wide, extending on the back of the scalp as much as ear to ear. After a local anesthetic is injected, the strip is removed and closed with stitches or surgical staples.

A linear scar is created, but with minimal hair length, it is not usually obvious. The strip is sectioned, placed under microscopes, and the FUs are removed and placed into dishes filled with a cold preservative solution.

After the grafts are prepared, the bald scalp is outlined and injected with a local anesthetic. Placement is made by nicking the scalp with varying sized needles, and the 1 to 4 hair FUs are inserted into the tiny openings.

Usually, a pressure dressing is applied that is removed the next morning. The short transplanted hairs fall out over the next few weeks (transplant shock), and regrowth starts sometime around the third month post-transplant.

 

What’s  FUE?

It stands for FOLLICULAR UNIT TRANSPLANT. Unlike the traditional HARVESTING strip method, FUE utilizes a small cookie-cutter like punch to remove individual follicular units, eliminating the linear surgical scar created by removing a strip (FUT).

Over the past five years, FUE has become the procedure of choice for many patients. The units are removed from the back of the scalp (rear fringe or “safe area”), because these follicles are capable of growing hair for most of a person’s lifetime, even in the baldest individual. In my ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT CENTER, I use the Artas Robot for all my FUE transplants.

 

What Is The Robotic Fue Procedure Like?

The donor hair in the back of the scalp is shaved and a local anesthetic is injected. The FUs are created individually by the Robot, removed manually and placed into dishes filled with a cold preservative solution.

After the grafts are prepared, the bald scalp is outlined and injected with a local anesthetic. Placement is made by nicking the scalp with varying sized needles, and the 1 to 4 hair FUs are inserted into the tiny openings.

Usually, a pressure dressing is applied that is removed the next morning. The short transplanted hairs fall out over the next few weeks (transplant shock), and regrowth starts sometime around the third month post-transplant.

How Long Does It Take The Transplanted Hair To Grow?

Hair grows at different rates, but most people have reasonable growth and coverage in six to ten months.

 

Will I Need To Repeat The Procedure?

Depending upon the area to be covered and continued hair loss, future sessions may be required to increase density and fill in newer bald areas.

 

What Is A Combined FUT / FUE Hair Transplant?

When someone has lost most of his hair and is left with a narrow rear fringe, because the hairs in this “safe” area are fewer in number, two methods of HARVESTING can be utilized.

This “safe” or donor scalp is unique because those follicles are capable of growing hair for most of a person’s lifetime, even in the baldest individual.

First, the FUT method may be used once or twice. In an FUT procedure, a strip of scalp is removed and the 1- 4 hair grafts (Follicular Units or FUs) are removed under microscopes. There is a limit to how wide a strip of scalp can be removed, and in most cases, after one to two removals, the scalp is too tight to allow for more strip removals.

Because there is still usable follicles left, they can be removed individually with a small punch (Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE). Combining these two procedures in selected individuals, allows us to maximize the amount of hairs from a limited donor scalp.

Can women have a hair transplant?

In my practice, about 15 to 20% of my patients are women.

Women can lose their hair in the same pattern that is common to men, i.e. recession of the hairline often with thinning or balding back toward the crown. Typically, the female pattern of balding (FPB) spares the hairline, which may thin, but doesn’t recede, while thinning to balding occurs at or behind the hairline, spreading to the crown.

About a third of my female patients have the male pattern problem (MPB) and transplanting requires re-establishment of the rounded hairline associated with women, which usually requires enhancing of the so-called temporal points on the sides in front of the ears.

For the other two-thirds, transplanting means filling in the thinned areas in order to provide better hair density.

The FUT or strip method is usually the only type of transplant used for women. It has a distinct advantage over the FUE transplant because when the grafts are prepared under a microscope, follicular units can be combined to provide hairier grafts that provide better coverage and density.
