The reason that hair transplant options have changed so much in recent years is the move to the advanced follicular unit extraction (FUE) method of transplantation. Hair transplants have been performed for decades but used a follicular unit grafting (FUG) method. With FUG hair transplants, strips of scalp hair are removed with linear incisions, requiring stitches and leaving a scar. At City Facial Plastics, we offer FUE hair transplants. They are more effective, discreet and comfortable for most hair restoration procedures.

The FUE hair transplant is a complex two-step process. First, the donor hairs must be harvested from one area of the scalp. This is usually on the back or sides where hair is the thickest. The number of follicles harvested depends on the patient and the area to be covered, which can be several hundred or a few thousand. The second step is transplanting the harvested follicles into the recipient sites. This is where artistry and technology meet, creating aesthetically-pleasing new hair, using advanced technology to promote healthy regrowth.

Advanced Hair Transplant Techniques

At City Facial Plastics, hair transplants are completed by Dr. Gary Linkov, our facial plastic surgeon and hair transplant specialist. Dr. Linkov is a fellowship trained and experienced hair restoration specialist. He uses the most advanced techniques and technology for our FUE hair transplants. Hair transplant procedures use FUE and the WAW system, which is a hybrid hair punch system that reduces hair graft transection. This means fewer hair grafts are damaged than with the use of other methods, reducing the amount of grafts that need to be harvested.

FUE hair transplants have changed the way hair loss is treated, offering more options with less discomfort and more natural-looking results. If you are interested in learning more about hair transplant options, schedule an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Linkov at City Facial Plastics in Manhattan.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!

Rachel G.
