Hair Transplant in Cary and Fayetteville, NC
Hair transplants are one of the most reliable and effective hair restoration techniques, facilitating natural hair growth in the treated areas. At Fayetteville Plastic Surgery & Cape Fear Aesthetics, we offer this treatment to men and women living in Fayetteville, Sanford, Raleigh, Cary and the neighboring North Carolina communities.
What is a Hair Transplant?
A hair transplant is a hair restoration technique that involves transplanting healthy, functional hair follicles into an area that is lacking hair volume. This allows patients to achieve completely natural hair growth that can reverse hair loss and hair thinning. At Fayetteville Plastic Surgery & Cape Fear Aesthetics, we use Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) for hair transplants. During an FUE transplant, small groups of hair follicles are carefully extracted and transplanted into the desired area. This method also minimizes downtime and scarring, as it is one of the least invasive hair transplant methods available.
What Are the Benefits of a Hair Transplant?
A hair transplant is most often used to treat male pattern baldness, but it can also be used to restore hair in the following areas:
- Eyelashes and eyebrows
- Chest hair
- Pubic hair
Patients can also feel confident choosing Fayetteville Plastic Surgery & Cape Fear Aesthetics for their hair transplant because Dr. Edward Dickerson is a recognized member of the International Society for Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS). He also has extensive experience with ethnic hair transplants, ensuring that patients maintain their unique ethnic heritage. We proudly provide the most up-to-date technology and have over 10 years of experience to help you make the correct choice toward hair restoration.
How is a Hair Transplant Performed?
During an FUE hair transplant, hair is moved from a donor site to the bald or balding part of the head or body known as the recipient site. This is a great method, especially for military service members, because it is virtually undetectable and doesn’t leave linear incisions that are seen with other methods. During this process, the donor site is numbed before extracting hair follicles to minimize any discomfort. After the hair follicles are extracted, they are carefully planted into the desired area and the treatment is completed. This treatment can take up to an hour or longer, depending on the size of the area being treated.
When Will I See Results from My Hair Transplant?
After the initial transplant, hair follicles will shed. This may be discouraging to patients, but this is a natural part of the restoration process. After the shedding period, which can last as long as four months, the follicles will start producing healthy, natural hair. This is still a gradual process, and patients may not notice full hair growth until up to eight months or even a year after treatment. In some cases, multiple hair transplant sessions will be necessary to achieve the desired results.
Is There Downtime or Scarring After Treatment?
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is the least invasive type of hair transplant surgery currently available on the market. Dr. Dickerson and the Fayetteville Plastic Surgery team use the latest technology to provide results with minimal trauma to the scalp, allowing little to no trace of the procedure. This method best compliments a more natural look for men or for those with short haircuts because it does not leave behind a linear incision. This procedure also has little to no downtime, allowing you come in Friday and get back to work on Monday.
