Welcome to Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery for hair transplants in NYC on Park Avenue.
We offer both FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) hair transplants and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplants as a part of our hair transplantation services. This form of hair restoration is where donor hair is taken from the back of your scalp then these healthy hair follicles are implanted into the thinning or balding areas.
Why choose Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery?
Our expert team at Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery has extensive experience performing successful FUT hair transplants in New York City – and we are proud of our reputation for excellence in this custom treatment.
We take personalized and individual care with each patient to fully understand your cosmetic goals, and we provide honest recommendations as to which service can best make them a reality. As with any surgery, a successful transplant depends on the skills of the surgeon – and our professional, top-rated team is one of the best in NYC.
FUT Hair Transplant Overview
FUT stands for follicular unit transplantation and is the technical name for “strip harvesting” where a narrow strip of your scalp is used as a donor site for a hair transplant.
FUT is the most common and traditional method of hair transplantation.
FUE Hair Transplant Overview
Before FUE, the only option surgeons had was to excise a strip of skin from the back of your scalp to harvest the follicles – leaving a linear scar.
Follicular unit extraction is an advance on this technology that allows our hair transplant surgeon to harvest individual follicles from your scalp one-at-a-time with tiny extractions during your FUE hair transplants procedure. FUE hair transplants avoid the linear scar that comes with traditional strip-harvesting hair transplants, while still providing the remarkable benefits: a more youthful, full, and attractive hairline.
FUE stands for follicular unit extraction and is a specialized technique for harvesting donor follicles for a hair transplant procedure. FUE uses tiny (1 millimeter or less) circular incisions to extract individual follicles. Instead of the horizontal scar typical with other methods, FUE hair transplants in NYC leave only tiny scars that are virtually invisible.
FUE hair transplants have the advantage of being minimally invasive, providing many of the advantages of traditional hair transplants without some of the drawbacks.
What a Hair Transplant in NYC Can Treat:
Minimally invasive procedure
For those that do not want to undergo a surgical procedure for a hair transplant, an FUE hair transplant in NYC is a great option. There is no scalpel or long incision with this procedure.
Minimal scarring and discomfort
Because of its minimally invasive technique, a FUE hair transplant only yields minimal scarring and patient discomfort.
Natural-looking and effective results
As with any of our hair transplant procedures, our goal is natural looking results that make a significant improvement in the appearance of your hair.
Since this procedure is less invasive than a FUT hair transplant, there is very little time needed for recovery. This makes it easy for you to find an optimal time to get the procedure.
6 to 8 hours
Finding the best procedure for your hair restoration.
While countless shampoos, topical creams, and oral supplements exist to boost hair production, nothing compares to the result available from physically recreating a hairline with your natural hair follicles. At Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery, we offer a full range of hair transplants in NYC, including our popular FUE and FUT hair transplants.
High success rate
Hair transplanted in an FUT procedure has an excellent rate of successful reintegration into your scalp, resulting in a more youthful, vital appearance.
The FUT hair transplant method allows your surgeon to transplant significantly more hair in a single session than other methods.
Fast and easy
Unlike other methods that may require extensive time in extracting hair follicles individually, the process of harvesting the donor site from your scalp can be completed in a matter of minutes.
Best for those with long hair
FUT transplants are ideal for those with long hair, as you are not required to shave any portion of your head or alter your existing hairstyle in any way.
FUT and FUT Hair Transplant Process
How it Works
Recovery & Results
FUE Hair Transplant – As with any surgical procedure, the first step is an in-person consultation where we can discuss your goals and come to an understanding of what the best option is to accomplish them. Once we have determined that an FUE hair transplant is right for you, we will design your new and improved hairline and get to work!
FUT Hair Transplant Process – An FUT hair transplant always begins with a consultation where we fully educate you on the procedure, perform a detailed analysis of your existing hair and scalp, and design your FUT hair transplant procedure.
The results from a hair transplant in NYC from Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery can be truly life changing, making you look younger and completely revitalized.
FUE Hair Transplant – An FUE hair transplant can take anywhere from two to four hours, as each follicle must be individually harvested and then carefully implanted into the target areas. Most patients report minimal discomfort during the procedure. They simply relax, listen to music or watch TV throughout the procedure.
FUT Hair Transplant Process – For the FUT hair transplant procedure, we will then proceed to identify and prepare the donor site for extraction. Once we’ve prepared the donor site, we will excise a small strip from your scalp and immediately close the incision with nylon sutures. The donor strip is then carefully processed. The follicles are individually removed and prepared for transplant and integration into the target areas of your scalp.
Once we’re ready to begin the transplant, the target area of your scalp will be numbed with local anesthesia for your comfort. Tiny incisions will then be made throughout the target area of your scalp and the new grafts will be inserted.
FUE Hair Transplant – Once your FUE hair transplant is complete, you can return home to recover for 2 to 3 days, after which you will be free to return to your daily activities. We recommend avoiding strenuous activity for the first 7 to 10 days while your newly transplanted hair settles in the new locations.
Within the first 2 to 3 weeks, you can expect to see your newly transplanted hair begin to shed, which indicates that it’s been fully re-incorporated into your scalp. It usually takes 3 to 4 months before you see the new hair really begin to grow, and it can take up to a year before the hair is fully grown in.
The good news: your results can last 10 years or more! Furthermore, if you continue to experience continued hair loss over time, many patients receive second or third FUE hair transplants to maintain their new and improved look.
FUT Hair Transplant Process – Once the transplant is complete, we will gently cleanse your scalp and give you detailed aftercare instructions to ensure the transplant is successful. Most patients are sufficiently recovered to resume most activities within a few days, with limitations on actions that are strenuous or outdoors.
After 10 days, you will return to our Manhattan clinic to have the sutures removed. Within the first couple of weeks, you can expect to see the newly transplanted hair shedding. This shedding is a normal and healthy part of the process as your newly transplanted follicles initiate a new growth cycle. You can expect real hair growth within the first 3 to 4 months, after which it will grow normally along with the rest of your hair.
