Types of Hair Restoration 

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

FUE hair transplantation is a precise, exact procedure of extracting individual hair follicles from a donor area and inserting them into the thinning or balding areas on your scalp. This is a cutting-edge technology that leaves no scarring.

Strip Method

The strip method is the traditional hair transplantation, in which a small section of the scalp on the back of the head is removed so the hair follicles can be used for implantation to thinning or balding areas. This method does leave a linear scar, which is easily hidden beneath medium-length hair.

Hairline Lowering

A hairline that is too high on the forehead can be an aesthetic concern for women. The hairline can be surgically lowered to create a more attractive look. This procedure takes only a few hours and requires minimal downtime. 

PRP Hair Restoration

PRP (platelet rich plasma) hair restoration is a non-surgical option to help stimulate hair growth. A concentrated serum is produced from a sample of your own blood and utilizes the growth and healing factors of plasma, leading to cellular stimulation of hair follicles. PRP hair restoration is ideal for the early stages of hair loss or for those who would like to boost hair transplantation results.

Am I a Candidate for Hair Transplantation?

Men or women who meet the following requirements may be ideal candidates for our hair restoration in Pittsburgh, at Sistine Hair Restoration:

  • Those who have adequate donor hair (usually taken from the back of the head)
  • If you have hair loss on the top of the head 
  • Or near the front of the hairline 
  • Or at the crown of the head

How Much Will My Hair Restoration in Pittsburgh Cost?

Hair restoration treatments vary based on which procedure you have, and the amount of thinning or balding that needs to be addressed. For the cost of a hair transplant in Pittsburgh, it would depend on the amount of hair you need to move. Contact our office today to schedule your consultation and learn more.

Surgical Details for Hair Transplantation

The details of your surgery will be different depending on which procedure you choose. In general, just before your procedure, Dr. Leong will draw your desired hairline to follow the natural, original hairline. The hair will be cut short at the donor site, which is usually at the back of the head.

Local anesthesia will be applied to your scalp. A strip will be cut from the back of the scalp, or in the case of FUE transplantation, your surgeon will prepare the hair in the area where follicles will be removed.

For an FUE procedure, a finite tool called a micropunch will be used to remove the hair follicles from your skin. A series of tiny incisions will be made in the balding or thinning area where the extracted follicles will be inserted. The follicles are then inserted into these incisions.

Hair Restoration Before & After

What Should I Expect After My Hair Restoration?

After your hair restoration procedure in Pittsburgh, most people can return to work within 2-5 days.

You may see some redness and feel soreness or mild swelling in the area where the hair follicles were implanted. This will heal quickly for most patients. 

Keep in mind that it is normal for some of your hair to fall out for the first three months after the procedure is complete. Your recovery process and the time it takes to see your final results vary, but on the whole, you will be able to see the initial effects within about 3-4 months after your procedure. You will notice a difference in your hair and begin to see fuller and thicker hair that was thin or bald before.
