Hair Replacement

Losing Your Hair Can Be Life Changing; We Can Give You Both Your Hair and Your Life Back.

For many people, hair loss is a very emotional and scary event and causes both men and women to feel self-conscious, embarrassed and make them want to hide away from the world.

Hair loss can be triggered by a number of factors including thyroid disease, anemia, hormonal imbalances, protein deficiency, chemotherapy, low vitamin levels and autoimmune conditions like alopecia areata.

Whatever the cause, you do not have to live with hair loss. You can choose hair restoration treatment offered by Dr. Foster.

Dr. Foster treats patients with hair loss using Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE. FUE is a clinically proven and precise method designed to restore lost or thinning hair. During the procedure, Dr. Foster uses an FUE device to transfer healthy hair follicles from another area of your scalp (usually the lower back of the head) to a place where hair loss has occurred, such as the temple or hairline.

Once implanted into the treatment area, these hair follicles stay in place for 2-3 weeks before shedding. Once they are shed, new growth will develop within 4-6 months.

Your new hair will be fully grown in approximately 12 months and is permanent, even lasting through chemotherapy treatment.

FUE is highly personalized, and because of the precision required, the procedure takes approximately eight hours. FUE is virtually painless, using local anesthesia to numb the scalp.

On average, most patients require 1,000 to 2,500 grafts, but the number of grafts needed is subject to your goals for treatment and vary from patient to patient. Most patients only require one FUE procedure, but many patients love their results so much they schedule additional sessions.

Are you considering hair replacement? Schedule a consultation with Dr. Foster to find out if FUE hair transplant therapy is right for you.
