If age-related hair loss has caused your hairline to recede, follicular unit transplantation (FUT) can be a solution.
The FUT hair restoration procedures at Luminary Cosmetic in Linwood or Philadelphia can give you a full head of hair so that you won’t have to worry any longer about covering up bald spots.
In FUT surgery, an experienced hair surgeon cuts a strip of skin from the back or side of your head and extracts individual hair follicles. These follicles are then inserted into the balding parts of your scalp. The surgery works best at covering a receding hairline caused by male pattern baldness.
With FUT, a strip of tissue is removed from the donor area. The hairs are then harvested from the follicles and placed wherever your hair needs thickening.
After the donor strip has been removed, the incision is carefully sutured closed. Once the area heals, you will be left with only a very fine linear scar that is virtually undetectable after the surrounding hair grows out.
After administering some local anesthesia to your scalp to numb any pain, we’ll remove a strip of hair from a predetermined location and harvest the hair follicles from this strip through a careful process. Each hair follicle that’s harvested will be transplanted individually into the area of your scalp where baldness is present to start the hair regrowth process. Over time, you’ll see your natural hair start to regrow in the treatment area.
- Many hair follicle unites can be transplanted in one session
- High rate of follicle survival
- Consistently natural-looking results using your own hair
- Minimal signs of surgery in donor area
- Works great for men and women
- Natural hair is regrown
- Safe treatment with long-lasting results
FUT is an outpatient procedure, which means that you will be able to return home the same day after your treatment.
Three to five months are generally needed before hair regrowth starts to become visible. It may take anywhere from 12 to 16 months after the FUT procedure before your hair regrows completely. Once your hair grows back, you’ll be able to enjoy it for years to come.
Since your own hair follicles are used to spawn natural hair growth, your results will look completely natural. Once your new hair has grown in, it will blend in seamlessly with your existing hair and won’t look like you’ve had a transplant.
The cost of your FUT procedure is based on the size of the case. Typically, a FUT procedure may be less costly than a FUE procedure. Contact us for a free consultation to learn more.
I highly recommend both Luminary and FUE hair transplantation. My care there was outstanding. My hairline has been receding, along with thinning areas around the sides and crown, for a while now. I decided to do something about it and after researching my options, was impressed with advances in FUE hair transplants. I consulted with a few doctors and chose Dr. Saltzburg and Hunter Yard because I was impressed from the get-go. Their expertise was obvious, along with their willingness to take the take time to follow up and answer questions. The actual surgery was remarkably smooth and I was impressed with the time and effort they took to harvest every hair follicle and transplant them. After 2 months, I’m already thrilled with the results and I expect to see continued hair regrowth over the next year.
I had an extremely positive experience with Luminary Hair Restoration!
After months of research, and after visiting another Hair Restoration doctor who I was not happy with, I decided to schedule a consultation with Dr. Saltzburg. I was immediately impressed with Luminary’s immaculate, beautiful facility and with the warm reception.
Hunter Yard provided the initial detailed overview, where I was able to ask all my questions and concerns and provide my history. He immediately made me feel at ease with his down to earth style and attention to detail.
I then met Dr. Saltzburg, who gave me an overview of all of my options, with no pressure whatsoever and made me feel very confident in the potential results for my hair loss replacement. I decided to schedule my NeoGraft FUE procedure.
Post procedure, I can’t say enough how happy I am with the results. My hair replacement has been very natural looking yet has resulted in a significant improvement in my appearance and confidence. My girlfriend is very happy with the results too! Dr. Saltzburg and the team at Luminary Hair Restoration exhibited the utmost professionalism and I give my highest recommendations to anyone interested in hair replacement.
If I had known what kind of results I would get through hair transplantation with Dr. Saltzburg, I would have done it years ago. I suffered for years, from a pretty young age, with a significant receding hairline. It really bothered me, but it didn’t seem like I could do much about it.
A good friend strongly recommended I see Dr. Saltzburg, and I’m thrilled with the results. The procedure itself was not a big deal at all and downtime was minimal. I feel so much more confident about my appearance and I would do this again, 100%. Needless to say, my girlfriend is also thrilled with the results.
Can’t recommend Dr. Saltzburg and her team at Luminary highly enough. Two thumbs up.
