Hair transplant procedures have been performed for many decades, but the options available now are far more advanced than ever before. The old “hair plugs” that were used a few decades ago have been replaced with more efficient and discreet options in hair transplants. Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) is an effective and efficient option for transferring thousands of hairs from one area on the scalp to another. At LM Medical NYC, we offer FUT hair restorations at our facility in Greenwich Village.

FUT hair restoration changed the way hair transplants were performed. The old method of removing a tuff of hair and “plugging” them into a new area was improved with follicular unit transplantation (FUT). This method uses a surgical incision to remove a thin strip of hair follicles from a dense area on the scalp, usually in the back of the head. The hair follicles are separated into small groups of follicular units, usually with up to four hairs, which are transplanted to the desired area of the scalp.

Beautiful Hair Restoration

FUT hair restorations can transplant up to 5,000 units in one session. This is an efficient method of hair restoration that takes less time than other methods like follicular unit extraction, or (FUE). There is an incision made that will leave a thin scar from the area where the follicles are harvested, but this scar can usually be easily hidden. Once healed, there is usually no visible evidence of the hair transplant procedure.

During the procedure, the scalp is numbed with a local anesthetic. A thin strip of hair follicles and scalp tissue is removed, then the incision is sutured closed. The hair strip is separated into the desired units – patients can relax while this process is completed. Once the follicle units are prepared, they are inserted into the desired area to create a natural flow and appearance. Most patients can return to most normal activities the next day.

At LM Medical NYC, we offer advanced options in hair restorations for men and women. Our state-of-the-art aesthetic facility offers both follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE) with NeoGraft®.

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.

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.

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!!
