Capri Hair Restoration is committed to offering affordable, professional, and natural hair transplant procedures to individuals in New York City who are suffering from unsightly hair loss.
According to the American Hair Loss Association, nearly two-thirds of all American men will suffer from some hair loss by the age of thirty-five, many beginning as early as their twenties. 85% of all men will experience significant thinning by the age of fifty. Although this has commonly been thought of as a male problem, even calling it “male pattern baldness”, women make up nearly 40% of hair loss sufferers today.
The Emotional Toll of Hair Loss
Alopecia, or hair loss, can have multiple different causes and can affect all aspects of life from personal relationships to professional ones. These devastating consequences cause more people to seek hair restoration services in the New York City area each year.
Every day, Dr. Mark Boles and his New York City hair transplant team at Capri Hair Restoration see the emotional and social ramifications of hair loss, often resulting in depression and anxiety. Fortunately, there are solutions for the sufferers of hair loss that are practical and affordable.
The Most Advanced Hair Restoration in New York City
At Capri Hair Restoration, we offer the most advanced techniques available today. Both FUE, or Follicular Unit Extraction and FUT, or Follicular Unit Transplantation offer simple outpatient solutions for hair restoration with the most natural look possible. Both techniques utilize the patient’s own hair. Follicles are harvested from the scalp and are then moved to the thinning location. With FUT, a strip of donor tissue is taken from the back or sides of the patient’s own scalp. With FUE, the harvesting of individual follicles is done with a small surgical tool. Both FUT and FUE offer the latest in cutting-edge methods to transplant hair with natural results and minimal scarring.
Many hair loss sufferers who have looked for hair transplant options have agreed that these techniques afford them a natural looking solution instead of other methods. Because the donor hair is from the patient’s own scalp, it looks, feels, and behaves the same as the patient’s other hair. But because it is genetically different — not from that area of the scalp prone to hair loss — it will not succumb to the same hair loss behavior as the original hair did.
The Difference Between FUT & FUE Donor Harvesting
Unlike FUT, which takes a strip of donor tissue from the scalp, FUE hair transplant extraction uses a small surgical tool that makes tiny punctures to extract individual follicles. These individual follicles are then transplanted into the thinning or balding area individually. As an alternative to FUT, FUE is able to remove follicles in a less prominent and noticeable way.
Because of the extraction process of FUE, it leaves minimal scarring. This means that it may be a better option for patients who may be at a higher risk of scarring like younger patients or ones who choose to wear their hair shorter. The tiny holes from the follicle extraction result in a substantially shorter postoperative healing time. Consequently, FUE hair transplants may be favorable for some New York City residents.
