Hair Restoration: Surgical

Out with the old – in with the new!

Gone are the days of unnatural looking hair transplants that resemble rows of corn or the unsightly doll's head look. Using today's most advanced and refined techniques, Carolina Hair Restoration achieves natural looking results…even your hair dresser won’t be able to tell you’ve had hair transplantation surgery.

FOLLICULAR UNIT MICROGRAFTING
This is a two to five hour surgical procedure that is performed under mild, oral sedation and local anesthesia.  A thin strip of donor hair is trimmed and removed from an androgen sensitive area at the back of your head. The incision is then meticulously closed and will result in a small scar that is well hidden in your hair.  The strip of donor hair is sectioned into small units, under a microscope, down to individual follicular units.  These units may have from 1-4 hairs per unit.  The recipient sites are created simultaneously with the hair units’ preparation. Dr. Simmons then meticulously and skillfully implants these units into your scalp. 

RECOVERY FROM HAIR TRANSPLANTATION
What to expect after your surgery:

  • Some swelling and discomfort is normal and to be expected – this resolves quickly
  • You may wash your hair gently 24 hours after your surgery
  • You may resume light activity during the first week after your surgery
  • Shedding of the grafts is normal and to be expected within 2-3 weeks post-operatively
  • New growth occurs within 3 months after surgery – and is permanent
  • Your results will look totally natural and more youthful!

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR HAIR TRANSPLANTATION SURGERY?
The ideal candidate for hair restoration surgery is anyone who desires to restore lost hair and who is in good health.  He or she must also have a donor site with a sufficient amount of donor hair.
