Hair Transplantation

Hair Transplant New York NY

Whether due to hereditary, hormonal issues or other causes, thinning hair or substantial hair loss can have a significant impact on one’s self-esteem. Though doctors have performed hair transplants since the 1950’s, results have come a long way since the unnatural doll-like hair that patients saw in the 70’s and 80’s, as explained by the American Academy of Dermatology. At the time, sections of hair were placed in the areas of thinning hair. Unfortunately, these sections became noticeable after some time. Even so, methods for hair transplantation have evolved tremendously, helping men and women achieve the natural-looking head of hair that they desire.

New-age techniques using Follicular Unit Transfer (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) are widely used today. Yet, deciding which method is best is a crucial decision, requiring the experience and expertise of a qualified plastic surgeon.

In Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), a strip of tissue is removed from the donor area, usually from the back or sides of the scalp. Individual follicular units are taken from the strip of tissue using stereo-microscopic dissection. The edges of the strip are then closed. In Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), a larger donor area is typically used. Yet, the hair is harvested through small circular incisions. Because the FUE method helps avoid a long, linear scar, many assume that this method is best. However, when it comes to which is best for you, there are many considerations, including the amount of hair one hopes to transplant.

FUT: Advantages

  • Better quality of hair graft (when compared to the FUE method)
  • Hair is harvested from a place where it is more permanent (less risk of hair loss in the future)
  • FUT produces a maximum graft yield
  • Even with multiple FUT procedures, patients are left with only one scar. This is because each subsequent procedure removes the scar from the previous one

FUE: Advantages

  • Healing time is decreased, as incisions are very small linear holes
  • A better option for individuals with thickened or keloid skin, stretched scars or poor healing cycles
  • Less discomfort post-operatively (when compared to the FUT method)
  • When the scalp is too tight for a FUT transplant, FUE is a suitable alternative
  • Finer, more delicate hairs can be harvested

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
Kaitlin M.
Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Joann M.
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.
Leah G.
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.

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.
