Dr. Ramtin Kassir, well-known facial plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist offers patients a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedural technique that is a state of the art solution for hair loss.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a method of obtaining donor hair for Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), where individual follicular units are harvested directly from the donor area, without the need for linear incision. This method is perfect for both men and women who wear their hair short and do not want a scar in the back of their head. In this hair restoration procedure, Dr. Kassir uses a 1-mm punch that is used to make a small circular incision in the skin around the upper part of the follicular unit, which is then extracted directly from the scalp.
In the United States there are around 35 million men and 21 million women dealing with thinning hair or going bald. Dr. Ramtin Kassir, a national and international expert in cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery has been conducting a revolutionary procedural technique for hair loss patients by taking the patient’s grafts out 2-3 hairs at a time and not taking a whole strip of hair out. After the procedure there is some discomfort that is treated with oral medications, and there is literally no bleeding. Patients will see new hair growth from two to three months after hair surgery and is generally complete in ten to twelve months.
