Hair loss is primarily caused by a combination of aging and a family history of baldness. Dr. Burt Greenberg provides a wide range of hair restoration techniques for both men and women. Hair replacement surgery can enhance your appearance and self-confidence. Before deciding to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with Dr. Burt Greenberg.
Generally, hair replacement techniques use the patient's existing hair which is removed in a strip from the back portion of the scalp. Hair replacement candidates must have healthy hair growth at the back and the sides of the head to serve as donor areas. Factors such as: hair color, texture, waviness, curliness, all affect the overall cosmetic results.
New techniques in hair transplantation surgeries are micrografts and slit-grafts, which very accurately restore both the frontal hairline and the vortex (top of the scalp). Generally, two to three sessions are required in the facility under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation.
