About Hair Transplants & Hair Restoration
Although hair transplants have been performed since the late 1800’s, the modern technique of using hair from the genetically stable scalp (the donor area), was developed in the late 1950’s by Dr. Norman Orentreich.
Over the past 30 years Dr. B.L. Limmer and his research team developed and perfected a technique now referred to as the “Gold Standard” of hair transplantation: Microscopically Magnified Follicular Unit Micrografting.
The Advantages of Our Hair Transplant Technique…
Using Microscopically Magnified Follicular Unit Transplantation, our Doctors produce minute grafts of one to three hair follicles (Follicular Unit) and transplant them into balding areas. When performed by highly skilled individuals such as our Doctors and their technicians, the results are indistinguishable from native hair growth.
For this reason, Dr. Limmer’s technique is now employed by many of the world’s best Hair Transplant Surgeons.
The Microscope Makes the Difference
After a strip of hair is carefully removed from the donor site (typically in the back of the scalp), it is placed under a powerful microscope so follicular units (micrografts) can be meticulously separated. The quality and size of grafts produced by this technique can not be matched by any other method.
Through careful donor harvest and dissection, superior visualization under Binocular Stereoscopic Magnification results in less graft destruction.
These carefully dissected micrografts can then be densely placed into the recipient scalp, requiring fewer transplant sessions and providing an elegant cosmetic effect. The results are so natural that most people will never know that you’ve had a transplant.
Eyebrows, Beards, Mustaches, & Scar Hair Restoration
This hair restoration technique can also be used to recreate lost eyebrows, beards and mustaches.
Scalp scars from surgery, radiation, trauma, or other cosmetic procedures can also be improved or camouflaged with transplanted hairs.
