You can get a knee replaced, a hip replaced, even a shoulder replaced. But hair replacement or restoration is the one procedure that gives people pause. After all, no surgical replacement is more visible. But, done correctly, no surgical procedure leaves more lasting positive benefits when it comes to restoring a youthful, more vital appearance.
Of course, the goal is to get the best hair transplant possible. Great hair transplants occur for two principle reasons. First there is getting the best hair restoration surgeon. Second, the hair restoration surgeon must employ the best hair transplant procedures available.
The gold standard for the best hair transplant today is the Individual Graft Technique (IGT™) wherein individual grafts are harvested from the patient and returned to the head in a new location. Using this method, follicular units of 1-4 hairs each, which are units that grow naturally, are placed in the new area and look more natural than older methods, such as the hair plug method of grafting up to 25 hair follicles at a time..
The result is a more natural hairline, reduced recovery time (7 to 10 days), very little pain and virtually no scarring.
