Choosing the Right Hair Restoration Surgeon
One of the most important aspects of hair transplant is choosing the right surgeon. Getting the best results starts with researching the different hair transplant centers in San Diego. Each hair transplant surgeon will have a unique philosophy, approach and training. With the greater acceptance of hair restoration surgery finding the right provider is easier then ever.
Dr. Kolstad is a double-board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon. He spent a year training in one of the country’s best hair transplant centers in New York. Dr. Kolstad offers both strip harvesting (FUT) and was as the newest follicular unit (FUE) micrografting. Both FUT and FUE have specific advantages and Dr. Kolstad can help you determine which method is right for you. For large FUE cases Dr. Kolstad utilizes state-of-the-art Neograft technology to achieve the best possible results.
What is Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
This method involves the removal of a strip of actively growing hair from the back of the scalp, usually a 2-inch x 10-inch section. A scalpel is used to excise the strip and the incision is closed in multiple layers. Following excision, the strip of scalp is then sectioned into individual hair follicular units. Each follicular unit consists of a hair follicle, 1-4 hair shafts, and surrounding connective tissue.
For many patients looking to restore a frontal hairline a session of 2,000 – 2,500 micrografts is recommended. If temporal loss is the only area being treated sometimes smaller sessions of 1,000 to 1,500 grafts can get the job done. Restoring the posterior scalp can require as many as 2,000 to 4,000 grafts.
