March 24, 2014 (Newswire) - As old age or medical treatment takes effect, many of us wish we had more hair on the head. We wish we could reverse the clock and recover some of our image and self-esteem.
Well, with Dr. Norton Abramson's hair transplant expertise, you can now add hair to your head and bring back that smile and some of your youthful appearance.
Dr. Norton Abramson, M.D., is a fully qualified and board certified Hair Transplant Surgeon with enormous experience as a Hair Transplantation specialist. He is much sought after for hair transplantation by patients from all over the world, including some of the most prominent celebrities in Hollywood.
With over 15,000 successful hair restoration procedures, you can be rest assured that he is the best you can get and his technique of follicular unit hair transplantation has been perfected over the years. It is therefore no surprise that Dr. Abramson has been affiliated with several of the most prominent Hair Transplantation clinics in North America and has also trained other well-known physicians in follicular unit hair transplantation techniques.
For the uninitiated, hair transplantation technique involves examining the patient's scalp and drawing up a plan of action which will be reviewed with the patient. Donor and Recipient areas of the scalp are identified and the entire operation is conducted using local anesthetic.
There are several types of hair transplantation techniques including:
1. Follicular Unit Grafting (FUG)
2. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
3. Eyebrow Hair Transplant
4. Facial Hair Transplant
Follicular Unit Grafting (FUG) or "Strip Method" involves removing and grafting a tiny strip of the scalp. Each graft is carefully placed to allow enough blood to nourish every hair during the brief healing process. This is by far the most preferred method as it is less time consuming, costs less and gives better results.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) on the other hand, is a "one-hair-at-a-time" method. Obviously, this is a slower process requiring many sessions. It is also costs more in comparison to the FUG technique.
The technique to be used depends on the existing volume and location of the hair on the patient's scalp. In either case, the scars heal quickly and are difficult to detect - even under close examination.
