Hair Loss Procedures in Virginia
Do you need a hair loss procedure?
Experiencing hair loss is somewhat normal, especially if one is going through
a period of stress. Severe hair loss, however, especially over a long
period of time, is not considered healthy. This can signal you may be
experiencing serious health issues and need to see a doctor. The doctors
at Virginia Surgical Hair Center may be able to help determine the cause
of the hair loss, as well as determine if you are eligible for a hair
The hair loss procedures we offer include:
Our Most Common Procedures
During our follicular unit grafting procedure, we move hair in follicular
units, cutting away the non-hair bearing skin between them, and then we
transplant them into tiny slits on the top of the head. We intentionally
keep hair grafts as small as possible, while keeping the follicular units
intact, so that you can have a better chance of creating a totally natural
appearance after the procedure is complete.
Our follicular unit transplant and extraction procedure removes a small strip
of donor tissue which is then dissected under close magnification. The
extraction procedure uses small punches to remove each follicular unit
one at a time. Then a single strip of skin is harvested from the scalp
in the back of the head. Using special microscopes, the strip is then
dissected into individual follicular groups of one to four hairs for a
more natural look.
Have Minimal Scars
The "trichophytic" donor closure technique allows for a linear
donor scar to be camouflaged, even in those patients with short hairstyles
or buzz cuts. In other procedures, the surrounding hair could easily cover
the scar. For those patients with very short hair, the donor scar could
be visible. With the trichophytic closure, the "overlapping"
technique results in hair growing directly through the donor scar. This
dramatically improves coverage of the scar.
