Hair Transplant Surgery for Men and Women

There are several different types of hair transplant surgery options available today.  The most common types of hair transplants are FUT and FUE hair transplants.

FUT stands for Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation. Follicular units are hair groupings as they occur naturally on the scalp and typically contain 1, 2, 3 or 4 hairs. By means of the removal of a thin strip of scalp from the back of the patient’s head, hair follicles are taken from a donor area which is not susceptible to balding and dissected into individual grafts. They are then transplanted to the balding area of the scalp.

The second method is the FUE method of hair transplantation Follicular Unit Extraction involves taking the individual Follicular Unit grafts from the back of the head one by one by cutting around it through a tiny specialized instrument or robotic machine and removing the hair follicles. The process can be tedious and will takes a few hours but is painless after a few numbing injections are given. Once removed from the donor area, the follicular unit is then transplanted.

MUHG Hair Transplant Surgery

PAI Hair Transplant Surgery Cleveland Columbus Ashland OhioPAI Medical, of which we are a member, pioneered a third hair transplantation method a number of years ago called Multi-Unit Hair Grafting (MUHG). MUHG Multi-Unit Hair Graft transplantation became so successful that PAI patented it in both the USA and Canada. Multi-Unit Hair Grafting, offers patients suffering from hair loss the most natural appearance and, importantly, the greatest density per procedure versus any either FUE or FUT hair transplantation. The bottom line for our patients is that more hair can be transplanted per procedure. This means fewer procedures are needed to reach a patient’s hair restoration goal.

A blend of surgical hair transplant technologies, and a variety of different-sized hair groupings, known as grafts, are used to best fit the individual patient’s needs. Micro and macro multi-unit grafting involves transferring hairs in natural groupings. These grouping are used to create a much more realistic hair line that keeps with the patients age and realistic hair restoration goals. This process is constrained only by the hair density and the quality of the hair in the patient’s donor area, the extremes in contrast between scalp and hair color, and texture and limited curl. The grafts are inserted into pre-cut micro and mini slits that are strategically designed to aesthetically improve the density of your existing hair, lower your hairline, and fill in balding areas. There is no other hair transplant procedure currently available that has shown the ability to accomplish what Multi-Unit Hair Grafting has able to achieve, both in men and in women.

VanScoy Hair Clinics offers Multi-Unit Hair Grafting hair transplantation at each of our three hair loss clinic locations in Ashland, Cleveland, and Columbus Ohio.
