Minimally Invasive Procedures up 6% as the Economy Improves, New FUE Technique to Cover Scarring Adopted by Hair Transplant Clinic

Share Article

The economy is improving and an increase in cosmetic surgeries in 2012 proves the fact, according to a recent report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). A Los Angeles Hair Transplant clinic adapts to the demand for scar revision procedures by offering a new technique.

Minimally invasive procedures up 6%, according the American Society of Plastic Surgeons statistics.

A bad scar from a previous hair transplant surgery is usually due to poor or old techniques, says medical director of Beverly Hills Hair Restoration Dr. John Kahen.

In 2012, there were 14.6 million cosmetic procedures according to statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and, although there was a slight decline in surgical procedures - smaller, less invasive procedures were extremely favorable in 2012.

One procedure that saw an increase was scar revision procedures. A reconstructive procedure, scar revision is meant to minimize or remove a scar so it is more consistent with the skin tone and texture of the skin. Scar revision can range from a scar left from a cosmetic procedure to a scar left behind from a less invasive procedure such as hair transplant surgery.

A bad scar from a previous hair transplant surgery is usually due to poor or old techniques, says medical director of Beverly Hills Hair Restoration Dr. John Kahen, MD. "The scar becomes as difficult to deal with as the hair loss, and patients need more density in the area to achieve a natural hairline with minimal scarring."

At Beverly Hills Hair Restoration, a hair transplant clinic in Los Angeles, a new technique is being offered using Follicular Unit Extraction to achieve scar revision for patients who want to cover scars from previous hair transplant procedures. In this specialized scar revision technique, Dr. Kahen extracts each follicular unit individually using Follicular Unit Extraction technique and transplants it to the scarring area. This allows the transplanted hairs to grow through and over the scar. If a hair transplant surgery is desired by the patient, the surgeon will also be able to achieve more density using the FUE technique in the same session.

The Follicular Unit Extraction technique allows Beverly Hills Hair Restoration to achieve minimal scarring for patients who wear their hair very short or are looking to avoid the linear scar. This innovative hair transplant technique has become more popular than ever in hair transplant surgery as patients desire the most natural looking hair transplant surgery with the least scarring.
