Female Hair Loss: Hair Transplants or Wigs?

Hair Transplants New York, NY

Losing your hair can stem from a variety of problems. Inherited conditions, hormonal changes from menopause or autoimmune disorders may play a role. Temporary hair loss can be distressing. However, permanent hair loss can be devastating. Many women are too embarrassed to discuss the problem. They may feel unattractive, self-conscious or even socially isolated. Some women choose to cover up with hats or scarves to hide balding for as long as possible. Others resort to wigs. There is another option: hair transplants are available for women and can provide a natural, long-lasting solution.

The Trouble with Wigs

Wigs can be a fun way to change up a hairstyle or hide temporary growth issues. However, they can be hot and itchy. They slide around without proper silicone grips or specialized glue. They wear out quickly because of friction and tangles. When you remove it at night, you are reminded of your hair loss. There’s nothing wrong with alternative hair if you are happy with it. But if you want something more permanent, hair transplants are worth considering.

Hair Transplants Are Permanent

Replacing your hair can dramatically affect your appearance and improve your self-esteem. Unlike the visible “hair plugs” of the past, new techniques can achieve natural, full heads of hair. Depending on how long you want to wear your hair, there are different techniques available.

Follicular unit transfer (FUT) uses long incisions to implant strips of follicular units. While it requires less donor area, it also leaves longer scars. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) requires more grafted areas but uses smaller incisions and leaves fewer detectable scars. It also provides faster results and has a shorter recovery period.

Dr. Maurice Khosh Performs Both FUT and FUE Transplants

Dr. Khosh is an award-winning, dual board-certified plastic surgeon. He prefers the FUE technique for many reasons, but sometimes the FUT method is more appropriate for the patient’s particular needs. In either case, Dr. Khosh can help you achieve long-lasting results with the completely natural look you are seeking.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
