A Complete Guide to Hair Replacement Options

Doctor Operating Hair replacement surgery

For a growing number of men and women who suffer from hair loss, the term “bad hair day” takes on a whole new and stressful meaning—something that not only robs them of their sense of style but also of their self-esteem and sense of well-being.

If you’re on this page because you’ve decided you want to do something for your hair loss, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we’ve provided a brief guide to hair replacement options. Which of these is suitable for you depends on a number of factors, such as the cause of your hair loss and the extent thereof. Your hair loss expert will make a thorough assessment to determine the most effective option for you.

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

This hair restoration option has been refined over the years to yield better hair growth, less discomfort and suturing, and less noticeable scalp scarring.

During an FUT procedure, your hair loss doctor removes a strip of healthy hair-bearing skin and transplants it into the recipient site (area of your scalp where there’s sparse hair). If you have extensive hair loss, your doctor may harvest multiple strips.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

With this hair replacement option, your hair loss expert individually harvests hair follicles from the donor area of your scalp (an area where there is thick hair) then transplants them into the recipient site. Your doctor then cleans and covers the donor site with a bandage.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy

This treatment involves your hair loss expert extracting your own blood and then processing it in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma, which is the liquid portion of your blood, from the other components. Once the solution is ready, your doctor injects it into the target areas of your scalp.

PRP has growth factors that promote tissue repair and regeneration and boost hair growth.

Stem Cell Therapy

Extracted from a sample of your own fat tissue, stem cell therapy serum boosts the regenerative abilities of transplanted hair follicles. Along with platelet-rich plasma, stem cells speed hair growth, reduce scarring, and promote excellent healing.
