WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (Mass Appeal) - Hair loss can take more than just a physical toll on the people that it affects ... But luckily there are more and more options out there for people who are looking to save their hairline.
Dr. Scott boden guides patients through the world of hair care options and is here to shed some light on the subject.
Reconstructing a new hairline requires surgical as well as artistic skill. It is critically important to get it right the first time and thus requires considerable forethought and planning. Dr. Boden will work closely with you to learn your cosmetic goals and design a hairline that is appropriate to your features and age. Since the hair that is transplanted will continue to grow forever, it is crucial to recognize and plan for what will continue to look aesthetically pleasing as you age.
Follicular units are distinct groupings of usually one to four terminal hairs. The follicular unit is thus a naturally occurring physiologic, as well as an anatomic entity.
Today’s hair transplant procedures utilize natural occurring groupings of 1-4 hairs known as follicular units. With careful and meticulous technique, Dr. Boden can safely transplant a large numbers of follicular unit grafts per session. The use of these units helps to ensure that the cosmetic result of the transplant will appear completely natural. Dr. Boden utilizes follicular units exclusively and work with highly trained technicians who specialize in this procedure.
The evolution of microscopic dissection and follicular unit transplantation has been that this procedure can be practical for other parts of the body including eyebrows and eyelashes. It is also a practical means to address the thinning that is commonly seen in women who have a more diffuse female pattern of hair loss. The side-effects of hair transplantation surgery are relatively minor and serious problems are rare. Modern hair transplantation surgery is comfortable, predictable, and the results are incredibly natural with extremely high patient satisfaction. Dr. Boden commonly hears from his patients that their one regret was that they did not proceed with transplantation sooner.
