If you are interested in hair replacement/restoration in the Chicago area, please contact the Center for Cosmetic Surgery to arrange a consultation with Dr. Michael Horn.
For the vast majority of patients interested in hair replacement and restoration, thinning hair can be blamed squarely on genetics. However, even though the propensity for hair loss is predetermined, the decision to receive treatment is in the patient’s control. Hair replacement and restoration techniques have advanced significantly in recent years. Older, less effective methods such as punch grafting have been replaced by a new, superior treatment called follicular unit micrografting.
Whereas punch grafts involved transplanting larger clumps of hair and were notorious for producing a “corn crop” effect, each follicular micrograft contains only one to three individual hair follicles. The Michael Horn Center for Cosmetic Surgery offers advanced hair replacement through this state-of-the-art restoration procedure at its Chicago practice. Follicular unit micrografting is effective for both male and female patients.
A local anesthetic is administered prior to the micrografting treatment so that the patient remains comfortable and relaxed. A minute amount of tissue and hair follicles is then removed from an area in the back of the patient’s scalp.
Using a microscope, a special blade, and forceps, the professionals at the Michael Horn Center for Cosmetic Surgery will then carefully extract “micro” grafts of one to three hair follicles each from the tissue. After tiny incisions are made precisely where the hair will be transplanted, the micrografts are implanted on the patient’s scalp. The micrografting procedure is effective because hair is transplanted in the way that it occurs naturally - in follicular units of one to three hairs each.
For natural-looking hair replacement results, trust the hair restoration specialists at the Chicago-based Michael Horn Center for Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Michael Horn and his associates use only follicular unit micrografting for effective, natural-looking hair restoration.
In addition to natural-looking results, micrografting offers several other advantages for patients who have experienced hair loss. The procedure is virtually painless and extremely safe. The tiny incisions heal quickly and scars are unnoticeable. And unlike older methods, hair replacement with micrografting restoration techniques can be completed in one session at the Chicago-based Center for Cosmetic Surgery.
