“Unlike the strip method of hair transplanting, FUE does not require incisions or stitches,” says Dr. Kenneth Siporin, hair transplant specialist for Beautologie. “The procedure is more comfortable and patients can return to their normal activities faster.”
During FUE surgery, a small round instrument is used to remove hair follicles from healthy hairs at the back of the scalp. One or two hairs are removed at a time to ensure better growth, and the same amount of hair can be harvested as with stripping. The strip method involves the removal of skin from a patient’s head, and is known for leaving linear scars which can be seen when hair is shaved or cut short.
“When performing FUE, we create a natural looking hair line, and because there is no scarring, patients can wear their hair in any style,” say Dr. Siporin.
Approximately two out of every three American men will experience some degree of hair loss by the age of 35, and 85% will have significant hair thinning by age 50. While some treatments can temporarily slow hair loss, hair transplanting has proven to be the only way to maintain a full head of hair.
Beautologie offers several hair restoration options, including both surgical and non-surgical treatment. Patients receive a free consultation where their desires and lifestyle are fully discussed in order to determine the best method of hair replacement.
Dr. Kenneth Siporin, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, has strong surgical skills and a keen sense of aesthetics. You might assume that all hair transplant surgeons are Board Certified Surgeons, but they aren’t. The American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery is a newly established board, and it is not yet recognized by the American Board of Medical Sub-Specialties. This means that many Board Certified Hair Transplant physicians have not completed a residency in surgery, let alone plastic surgery. You should know that Dr. Siporin is not only Board Certified in Hair Restoration, but he is also a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. We believe that choosing a physician with the highest level of education and experience is the most important factor to obtain the most successful result in a hair transplant.
