What Is a Hair Transplant / Restoration?
Hair transplantation surgery is a technique that harvests carefully selected hair follicles from a donor section of the body (such as the back of the head) and surgically implants them into the balding site. The result of this minimally invasive procedure is an entirely natural look and feel. Unlike topical and oral medications for hair loss, the results are essentially permanent.
The Advantages of Our Hair Transplant Technique
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 nation-wide as the “Gold Standard” of hair transplantation: Microscopically Magnified Follicular Unit Micrografting.
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 our technicians, the results are indistinguishable from native hair growth.
Dr. Limmer’s ground-breaking technique is now employed by many of the world’s best hair transplant surgeons.

FUT Transplant Method
For our FUT transplant method, a donor strip is surgically removed from the area in the back of the head using a single surgical blade, which minimizes the possibility of transection or damage to the donor hair. The grafts are then dissected meticulously under a powerful microscope into “follicular units” which naturally contain 1, 2, or 3 hairs each. These grafts are then placed strategically into the recipient area to create a natural look and feel.Learn More

African American Hair Transplants
Like skin color, ethnicity also affects your hair and hair follicles. Also like skin color, these differences can range from subtle to extreme, especially in African American or Black hair. The aesthetic difference of the hair growing out from the head may be obvious to the eye, but the structural and microscopic differences can significantly affect how hair restoration procedures are properly performed. We specialize in all different types of hair in our office.Learn More
