Restore a Full Mane with a Female Hair Transplant

Woman with thick long dark hair.

Thinning hair can be devastating for women. Androgenetic alopecia (AGA), or female pattern baldness, is the most common cause of thinning hair in women. The thinning hair usually occurs in the front and top of the scalp and it is more common in women ages 20-40. One of the most effective options in hair restoration is a hair transplant procedure, which Dr. Maurice Khosh offers through his plastic surgery practice in Manhattan.

Advanced Methods of Female Hair Transplants

Hair transplants have been used for many decades to replace lost hair. The goal is to remove hair follicles from one area of the scalp and transplant them to the thinning areas. The evolution of hair transplants has improved this process and reduced the need for larger incisions in the scalp that leave behind noticeable scarring.

Dr. Khosh utilizes two of the most advanced options in hair transplants: FUT and FUE. Follicular unit transplantation, or FUT, has been used since the 1990s as the gold standard in hair restoration. This method harvests small strips of hair grafts from thicker hair areas, usually in the back of the scalp, that can be transplanted in the balding or thinning areas. Follicular unit extraction, or FUE, is more precise and meticulous, which removes fewer hair follicles with each harvest, but also results in less scarring.

Hair transplants with FUT and FUE use the patient’s own hair to restore a fuller, thicker mane. The procedure is minimally invasive with limited downtime required. The length of the surgery depends on how many hair grafts are performed and the method of hair transplant used. Most procedures do require several hours to perform this precise transplantation of hair grafts, but it is a worthwhile investment for most patients.

If you are embarrassed due to hair loss from AGA, a female hair transplant procedure may be the solution. Imagine enjoying the confidence of thicker hair that looks and feels natural since it is your own hair. To learn more about FUE or FUT hair restoration procedures, contact the office of Dr. Maurice Khosh in New York City. Call our clinic in Manhattan to schedule your hair restoration consultation.

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.

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.
