Dr. Kolstad uses state-of-the-art technology to remove the hair grafts one at a time. Using the Neograft individual hairs are excised from the back of the scalp through follicular unit extraction. The hair implants are placed one at a time to create a natural appearing hairline. Using this highly specialized technique, a hairline can be restored in a way that is so natural, your stylist won’t be able to tell which hair is grafted and which is not.
If you are concerned about thinning of your hair and want a long-lasting solution, hair transplants are an ideal solution.
Much like other plastic surgery, hair restoration is as much art as it is science. Dr. Kolstad uses his Facial Plastic Surgery background to create elegant hairlines and most importantly, natural results. When hair follicles are placed with the correct orientation and spacing, their visual volume is greater than the actual number of hairs present. It is the ability to get the result to be greater than the sum of its parts that distinguishes a good hair restoration surgeon from everyone else.
Dr. Kolstad’s expertise in hair restoration comes from spending a year training in one of New York’s busiest hair restoration centers, the Quatela Center for Hair Restoration. At this authority in hair restoration, Dr. Kolstad learned state-of-the art techniques that create impactful, long-lasting results with minimal downtime.
It is through working and learning from the best that Dr. Kolstad is able to deliver such high quality care to his patients.
Hair transplantation, simply put, is the transfer of hair follicles from one part of the scalp to another. The back of the scalp has a surplus of hair, and hair follicles can be safely transferred to an area where the density is less. After transfer, hair follicles go into a three month dormant phase in preparation for growth. After 90 days the hairs begin growing and achiever full maturity around twelve months after the procedure. The growth is so gradual that the majority of our patients are able to avoid the “what did you have done” questions.
The highly specialized automated FUE/FUT procedure can take several hours to complete. The hair follicles are extracted and placed one at a time in a specific orientation and spacing. We typically recommend that our patients plan for a full day during the hair restoration procedure.
