If you’re in New England and thinking about getting a hair transplant Boston is a great place to start looking for a surgeon. The DiStefano hair transplant Boston office is conveniently located in Newton, MA, making it convenient to all hair transplant Boston patients.
Hair replacement procedures can differ between doctors. At DiStefano hair replacement Boston (like all DiStefano offices), patients are offered the choice of Follicular Unit Extraction what DiStefano calls (the Individual Graft Technique, or IGT™), commonly called Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT).
With the Individual Graft Technique, DiStefano hair replacement Boston patients have individual follicles removed at the back of the head and then transplanted individually to recipient sites at the top and front of the scalp. The main advantage to this method is that there is no suture site and therefore no visible scar at the back of the head. This is particularly important for patients who wear their hair extremely short in the back.
With the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) method, DiStefano hair replacement Boston patients have a small strip of scalp removed from the back of the head and the follicles are then removed from the strip by several technicians. Once the site of the sutured area is closed a small linear scar remains, however it is covered by the patient’s hair. This type of hair transplant is normally less expensive, faster and more follicles can be transplanted in a single sitting.
