Hair is an important part of a woman’s unique look and style. Thinning hair can be a devastating discovery, and no number of serums, supplements and expensive hair products can fight some types of hair loss. If you are a woman struggling with hair loss, a hair transplant procedure may be right for you. At LM Medical NYC, we offer female hair transplant options at our state-of-the-art facility in Manhattan.

Hair restoration is not just for men. Many women experience thinning hair, bald spots and general hair loss. Genetics, hormones, disease and other factors can contribute to thinning hair, changing your appearance and affecting your self-confidence. Hair restoration can give you back natural, beautiful hair that can help you feel like yourself again. At LM Medical NYC, we offer follicular extraction unit (FUE) and follicular unit transplantation (FUT) options to restore your thinning hair.

The Latest in Hair Replacement and Restoration for Women

Hair transplant methods have advanced over the last few decades. The old “hair plugs” from decades ago have been replaced with follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE) methods. Follicular unit extraction, or FUE, removes individual hair follicles without incisions or noticeable scarring, then transfers the follicles to the desired area. There are no strips of tissue removed or stitched – FUE hair transplants are virtually scarless and less invasive for discreet, natural-looking results that many women prefer. FUT hair restoration does remove strips of hair follicles through surgery, but it can be a better option for some patients.

At LM Medical NYC, we offer the NeoGraft® FUE hair transplant system that is the first FDA-approved hair restoration device. This system is a pneumatic, automated medical instrument that precisely removes hair follicles with a punch and suction method without incisions. The automated technique can remove more follicles in less time, while preserving the hair for better transplantation results. The follicles are removed and moved to their new area on the scalp during the same procedure.

With FUE female hair transplant procedures, hundreds of hair follicles can be harvested from one area of the scalp or body and transferred to thinning spots on the scalp. Our facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Lesley Rabach, can carefully and artfully insert the hair follicles in the right areas and position to create beautiful new hair. The individual follicle method offers a more precise option for restoring hair than strips used in the FUT method, without incisions, stitches or scarring.

What to Expect with FUE

The NeoGraft FUE hair transplant procedure is virtually painless, but the scalp is numbed with a local anesthetic to ensure the patient is comfortable. Due to the intricate nature of the hair restoration techniques, most hair transplant procedures require a few to several hours to complete. Patients can relax while their hair follicles are harvested and repositioned. Once the procedure is complete, there is minimal downtime or recovery required.

During the procedure, there are small punch holes placed in the scalp, but these holes heal quickly with no noticeable scars. Patients can quickly return to their normal activities. Over the next 3-4 months, new hair growth will begin. By months six through nine, the results become more noticeable as the hair fills out and becomes longer. You will be able to style and care for your hair naturally, since it is your own hair.

FUT Hair Restoration

The FUT hair restoration method uses incisions to remove a thin strip of hair follicles from a fuller area of the scalp to the balding or thinning area. FUT can transplant more follicles in a shorter amount of time, which makes it less expensive than FUE. For some patients, this may be a more desirable option than FUE.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
