Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) October 12, 2012
Board certifed plastic surgeon and medical director of Chesapeake Hair Restoration, Dr. Jeffrey E. Schreiber, recently performed a hair transplant using automated FUE (follicular unit extraction.) This is the first time that this new technique has been reported to have been done in Baltimore, Maryland. With hair transplants becoming more and more popular with newer techniques offering a very inconspicuous and natural look, automated FUE offers a scarless form of hair transplants that will revolutionize the hair transplant industry.
Hair transplants have been around for many years and the techniques utilized have evolved over time be be less noticeable giving a more natural look. The most recent advance has been in how the hair grafts are retrieved from the back of the scalp in order to provide the necessary hair grafts to restore the frontal hairline, top of the scalp, and crown with new hair. The "plugs" of the 70's and 80's are no more as they gave a very telltale sign that a hair transplant was performed. The method of removing a strip of skin from the back of the scalp and cutting the hair grafts up into each individual follicular unit revolutionized hair transplants giving a much more natural look to the transplanted hair follicles. However, some men desire a close cropped hair cut in the back of the scalp and the scar from this technique can be noticeable. In men that leave the hair longer in the back of the scalp usually have no problem hiding this scar and after it is completely healed it is very difficult to find. Nonetheless, in those men and women who would rather not have the scar automated FUE is the way to go. No linear scar is made to harvest the hair follicles for a hair transplant when the automated FUE is utilized for this hair loss treatment procedure. Manual FUE is also an option, but his method is very time consuming and more grafts can be obtained with the automated technique. Even more, the automated technique uses a very small instrument that precisely removes each and every graft ensuring the smallest graft possible without being too small, but small enough to avoid the pluggy look that can sometimes be seen with manual FUE.
As a Maryland plastic surgeon board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Schreiber is pleased to offer this new automated FUE technique. He has been performing hair transplants for many years in order to reverse the effects of hair loss, and his experience with all forms of hair transplants allow him to offer the most advanced techniques to date.
