Hair Restoration for Men in NYC
Hair Restoration for Men in NYC
What is Hair Restoration?
There’s no denying that a full head of hair is a symbol of masculine youth. Hair loss and male-pattern baldness occur most commonly as a result of aging and a person’s unique combinations of genes. Around as many as 80 million men (and women) in the U.S. have some form of hair loss in their lifetimes. Even for men, losing your hair can have an emotional blow, resulting in low self-esteem and confidence. According to the American Hair Loss Association, 67% of men experience some degree of hair loss by the age of 35.
The goal of hair restoration for men is to offer the best hair transplant options in NYC, ultimately resulting in our patients reclaiming that sense of personal pride. Board-certified surgeon, Dr. Steinbrech, has spent his career helping men achieve their cosmetic goals. At his NYC practice, he and his team provide minimally-invasive hair restoration procedures that offer men the opportunity to regain their confidence with a natural result and no downtime. With today’s technology, revitalizing your hairline and counteracting negative genetic traits is within reach.
How is Hair Restoration Performed?
Though some men turn to wigs or hairpieces, these applications can be uncomfortable and bothersome to remove. These solutions are a thing of the past. Today, advancements in surgical technology for hair restoration for men have come a long way, particularly in major cities like NYC. These treatments have become routine and commonplace in our society. Men no longer have to fear baldness.
Hair transplants are performed in one of two ways: slit grafting and micro-grafting. The techniques used by Dr. Steinbrech at his NYC practice include 1 of 2 primary procedures:
FUT (Follicular Unit Extraction): Known as “strip” surgery, this treatment involves a strip of hair (skin) being removed from the back of the head to the donor area of the scalp. This method is dependent on how many hairs there are on the patient’s scalp. Typically, this approach yields better long-term results. However, minimal scarring can occur. Also referred to as slit grafting, FUT contains approximately 4 to 10 hairs per graft.
FUE (Follicular Unit Transplantation): In FUE, a strip of hair is not removed as in FUT. Rather, individual follicles are dissected directly from the patient’s scalp. The benefit of FUE is that results will yield little to no scarring when compared to the FUT method. FUE is also known as micro-grafting, containing just 1 or 2 hairs (which is contingent on how much area coverage is needed).
Who is a Good Candidate for Hair Restoration?
Male candidates for hair restoration include those who want to address baldness or thinning. However, the best candidates are patients with healthy hair growth at the back or sides of their scalp to use as donor areas.
- Men with thinning hair
- Men with male-pattern baldness or hormonal changes
- Men who have hair loss caused by injury or a burn
Hair Restoration Recovery Time
Recovery time for hair restoration can vary based on the individual in some cases, but more so depends on which procedure the patient had: FUE or FUT. In FUE, the small surgical dots can heal in just a week or two. Conversely in FUT, recovery can take about an extra week (2 to 3 weeks total). In either case, it is advised by Dr. Steinbrech that the patient avoid strenuous activity until that healing period has concluded.
