Boston Plastic Surgery Now Offering Minimally Invasive Hair Transplant Procedure

Boston Plastic Surgery Now Offering Minimally Invasive Hair Transplant Procedure

Thinning hair is an embarrassing condition that affects a large percentage of both men and women. According to the American Hair Loss Association, 85% of men over the age of 50 have significantly thinning hair—and 40% of the total hair loss population is female.

As anyone suffering from this condition knows, hair loss doesn’t only affect a person’s outer appearance, it also can influence people on a psychological level, often resulting in low self-esteem.

Until recently, there has not been a hair loss treatment on the market that provides patients with permanent results without leaving a large linear scar on the back of the head.

That’s why board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Fouad Samaha and his expert team of nurses and technicians are excited to offer NeoGraft®, the first FDA-approved hair transplant procedure of its kind.

“NeoGraft is a minimally invasive follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair restoration treatment that safely, effectively, and comfortably uses your own hair to thicken thinning or balding areas,” Dr. Samaha explains.

“Compared to other techniques, the NeoGraft treatment is gentle and involves very little discomfort because it requires no scalpel incision. My patients love that there is minimal downtime with dramatic results.”

What makes the NeoGraft system different from other manual FUE techniques is that it automates the hair transplantation process, reducing treatment time and virtually eliminating the risk of damaging hair follicles.

“NeoGraft gently and meticulously harvests and transplants hair follicles quickly, accurately, and with very little trauma to the follicle,”

Dr. Samaha says, comparing it to other hair transplant options. “Every single graft is precisely extracted with similar length and diameter to increase the likelihood that it will survive and produce hair.”

After treatment, patients will experience new hair growth as the transplanted follicles go through normal growth cycles. Results will gradually improve over the course of six to nine months, and new growth will look natural.

“This treatment is a superb option for many patients, though the best way to determine candidacy for NeoGraft is to consult with a plastic surgeon who is experienced in hair transplantation techniques,”

Dr. Samaha states. “We work very closely with our patients to map out a natural-looking hairline, and our patients have been thrilled with their NeoGraft results.”

Hair Restoration Surgeon Introduces New Technology to His Practice

Dr. Joseph Yaker, founder of Texas Center for Hair Restoration, now offers the SmartGraft™ hair restoration procedure, providing patients with an exciting new breakthrough solution for hair loss.

“SmartGraft is revolutionizing minimally invasive hair restoration treatments for both men and women suffering from hair loss.

This technology offers exceptional hair vitality in less time and more efficiently than previous Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technologies and techniques,” says Dr. Yaker.

According to Dr. Yaker, FUE is quickly becoming the gold standard treatment over the traditional “strip method” because of its minimally invasive technique.

“Patients are more inclined to undergo a hair transplant knowing there is a technique that is scalpel and suture free, which allows for less pain and quicker recovery without leaving an unsightly linear scar.”

The SmartGraft method, which may be used on men and women of all hair colors and textures, blends art and science with technology to give patients the natural look they deserve.

Using the SmartGraft system, individual hair follicles are gently removed by an advanced, suction assisted hand-piece.

These follicles are then safely collected and stored in a temperature controlled, sterile holding solution. These hairs remain moist and robust, while awaiting implantation.

“Both myself, my staff, and most importantly, my patients are extremely satisfied with the procedure from start to finish. The innovations that the SmartGraft provides, allows for exceptional long-lasting results.”

About Dr. Joseph Yaker

As a hair loss specialist and hair restoration surgeon, Dr. Yaker and his team offer only the most progressive, surgical and nonsurgical customized treatments available.

He strives to provide each patient the opportunity to regain fuller, natural appearing hair so that they can live carefree and confident lives.

LA Hair Clinic Offers Promotion on Cutting Edge Hair Restoration Technology

LA Hair Clinic Offers Promotion on Cutting Edge Hair Restoration Technology – FUE Graft

From November 1 to December 31 of 2015, LA Hair Clinic is offering Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) grafts for $5 per graft.

Previously, the hair clinic offered a similar special at their new location over the summer of 2015. The special was well received and got great feedback from patients all over the world; because of this, LA Hair Clinic decided to extend the offer through the holiday season.

The Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS) procedure is an older, outdated technique, where a piece of the scalp is removed and then the donor region is stapled or sutured onto the scalp.

Recovery for this procedure can take several weeks to months, with more complications such as tightness in the neck, numbness, hypertrophic scarring, linear scars, and if a higher graft count is needed, unnatural looking implants are a result.

FUE is the most advanced technology currently available in the field of hair transplants and hair restoration. FUE procedure recovery is almost an overnight process.

That means no scalpels, no sutures, no staples, and none of the complications associated with FUSS such as linear scars.

FUE gives the practitioner the flexibility of applying any number of grafts necessary in order to bring the density to its natural count per centimeter, in turn, creating a more natural looking hair transplant, with natural and even density.

Because it is non-invasive, FUE allows specialists to obtain grafts from any part of the body, including the chest, arms, legs, and back.

Typically, LA Hair Clinic charges $8-$12 per graft, but their current promotion is charging only $5 per graft. This is about 50% less than the current market offers.

Along with the promotion, everything required for additional recovery is included in the hair clinic’s package; prescriptions are pre-filled, special spray solutions are provided that need to be applied daily to help the grafts survive, and bi-weekly visits afterwards are included at no extra charge.

Jaques Abrahamian, VP and hair transplant specialist at LA Hair Clinic, is excited for how the promotion will service both the patients and the clinic.

Abrahamian says, “As not only a hair transplant specialist but also a former hair transplant patient myself, I can attest that the FUE technology is the best option for those looking for hair transplant or restoration options.

We have had some great feedback on this special so far and we hope that more people take advantage before the end of the year.”

About LA Hair Clinic

LA Hair Clinic’s team of surgeons have years of experience staring out in Beverly Hills, and performing on some of the most notable and influential celebrities. The surgeons at LA Hair Clinic are leaders in the field of FUE hair restoration and hair transplant.

Their services, which include scalp micropigmentation, scar revisions, body hair transplants and eyebrow restorations, help clients achieve the “after” photos they are hoping for. To learn more, visit


Turkish hair transplant business reaches $1 billion

Turkish hair transplant business reaches $1 billion

 Turkish hair transplant business reaches $1 billion

The hair transplant business in Turkey has reached $1 billion, with Istanbul as the most popular destination for those want a new head of hair, Wired magazine has reported.

Photographer Emanuele Satolli has studied the large hair transplant business in four clinics around Istanbul, which houses a total of 350 clinics where 5,000 patients, mostly from the Gulf countries, arrive to get hair transplants each month.

“When I realized that Turkey was the top country in the world for hair transplants and most of the patients arrive from Arab countries, I wanted to go deeper and meet these people to understand why so many really care about their physical appearance and in particular their baldness,” Satolli said.

According to the report, the transplant process, officially called the follicular unit extraction method, costs between $1,700 and $2,000, almost 10 times cheaper than any U.S. counterparts, an alluring factor for patients.

The operation includes inserting around 4,000 hair follicles, taken from the back of the head, on a bald or balding area.

In addition, the more patients are satisfied, the more frequently they return for multiple operations if their bald areas are too large for single session, the report said.
