Surgical Options for Hair Loss
Hair loss surgery is both a science – and
an art. It requires not only exceptional surgical
skills, but also the ability to re-imagine a
new hairline zone that complements your specific
facial features, age and lifestyle.
There are two main types of surgery for hair
loss - transplantation and scalp reduction.
transplantation (microfollicular grafting)
refers to the surgical movement of permanent
hair from densely covered sites on the sides
or back of the head (grafts), with its roots
intact, to an area of bald or balding skin.
Hair transplantation is the only thoroughly
proven way to permanently restore hair to
thinning or bald areas of the scalp. Eyebrow
restoration and reconstruction can also be
performed using hair transplantation.
- Scalp reduction involves the surgical
removal of sections of a bald scalp. Elastic
devices then are placed under the skin to stretch
the hair-bearing scalp over these areas. Today,
this procedure is utilized in only a very small
number of patients.
