There are many ways to restore your hair and to prevent further hair loss. These ways are fully and honestly discussed within our website. We will introduce you to a new method of hair restoration surgery that offers greater potential than standard methods of strip harvesting.
Conventional strip procedures involve the use of a scalpel to slice out a wedge of tissue from the back of your head. Some doctors will go so far as to remove an inch-wide wedge from the back of your head. This wound will then be closed with the use of surgical sutures. When the incision heals, you will be left with a linear scar on the back of your head. This scar typically ranges in size from 1 mm to 5 mm and will sometimes be up to ¼ inch or wider.
The Non-Strip Scar Hair Transplant
We offer an alternative hair transplant procedure of follicular extraction called Cole Isolation Technique (CIT®) or "FIT- Follicular Isolation Technique". This technique will not leave an unsightly linear strip scar on the back of your head. Our technique provides you with the option to wear a shorter hair style, or even to shave your head, if you so choose in the future. With CIT®, the donor area is methodically thinned out as naturally occurring groupings of hair are extracted and added to the top of the scalp in bald or thinning regions. This procedure is the only stand-alone procedure for the treatment of hair loss, as you will not require any additional procedures to hide or eliminate unwanted scars. CIT® offers the potential for faster restoration, a greater total donor supply, and denser packing of grafts.
CIT® can also be used to treat unnatural looking recipient areas from old plug procedures. We remove one follicular unit or grouping at a time rather than outdated methods of removing hair in large groups. Unlike removing plugs intact, by removing single follicular groups, the CIT® method leaves no plug or strip scarring.
