Depending on the underlying cause of hair loss, women can benefit from the transplantation of unaffected hair to areas of hair loss. Hair restoration surgery is most effective for women suffering from androgenetic alopecia, traction alopecia, or whose scarring alopecia has been successfully resolved. The first step toward a successful hair transplant surgery is to definitively diagnose the cause of hair loss. For that, you’ll need a consultation with Dr. Gray.
Follicular Unit Transplantation for women
FUT, and surgical hair transplantation in general, works because some hair follicles are vulnerable to damage by hormones while others are resistant. In a Follicular Unit Transplantation procedure, Dr. Gray moves hair follicles from a donor area to the balding areas of the scalp. Under anesthesia, a strip of tissue is removed from the donor area. Tiny grafts of 1, 2, or 3 individual hairs are dissected and treated with ATP to give the cells energy until they are transplanted. The grafts are then transplanted via tiny incisions, called recipient sites, to create a new hairline according to your individualized hair restoration plan. Dr. Gray precisely arranges and positions the grafts. History of hair loss, desired density, volume, and the likelihood of future hair loss are all taken into account in the FUT procedure. Thanks to an artistic eye and expert precision, Dr. Gray is able to achieve an unbelievably natural-looking hairline that follows your natural pattern of hair growth.
A unique approach to FUT procedures
Choosing your hair transplant surgeon is an important decision that we take very seriously at HT&RC. We believe that you’ll know the right doctor when you find him or her. If our practice is right for you, it will likely be because of those aspects of hair surgery that set us apart. First, you’ll never talk to a salesperson, consultant, or technician at the Hair Transplant & Restoration Center. From the very beginning, you’ll work directly with Dr. Gray to find a diagnosis, evaluate your options, and complete your personalized hair restoration plan. Our private, serene setting makes our location unlike any other practice anywhere. Patients come from several states away to enjoy the comfortable and considerate experience they receive at HT&RC. Dr. Gray has honed his bedside manor for 30 years, and as an anesthesiologist is constantly aware of your level of comfort. Perhaps most importantly, every FUT procedure at the Hair Transplant & Restoration Center includes treatment with Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, and ACell. Both of these help the scalp to heal and stimulate hair growth.
