Hair loss can be a stressful condition to cope with and it can deteriorate your self image. 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. Hair follicle grafts are precisely taken from the donor site and placed within a micro incision made on the scalp. FUE differs from FUT in that the hair follicles are individually extracted from areas of growth, therefore, no incision is made resulting in less recovery time. FUT and FUE both produce natural looking results since the hair utilized is from the patient. The recovery time for a hair transplant is anywhere from a couple days to 1 week, depending on the extent of the procedure. Results can start to be seen around 3 months following the procedure, and maximum results are seen around 10 months to 1 year. Many people are hesitant to get a hair restoration procedure because they feel that the results will not look natural. For the best results, 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.
