By age 50, nearly half of all men – and a significant number of women – are affected by hair loss. Much of this hair loss is hereditary; however, other factors also play a role in hair loss. At our El Paso, Texas practice, we offer hair restoration surgery and transplants to help our patients regain their confidence. We use a state-of-the-art micro-hair transplantation techniques that has replaced methods of the past that used “plugs” or larger grafts of hair, which were often noticeable. Dr. Ozan Sozer offers both follicular unit transplantation and follicular unit extraction (FUE) techniques. With our modern techniques, no one will know you’ve had hair restoration surgery because the transplants are so small that they look and feel just like normal hair.

Hair Transplantation Technique
Hair restoration and transplantation surgery is a fairly simple, outpatient procedure during which our surgeon, Dr. Ozan Sozer, places real hair into the balding area(s). This hair continues to grow naturally after the procedure. At our West Texas office, we offer micro-hair transplantation (individual hair micrograft restoration) that is performed under local anesthesia using both the traditional follicular unit transplantation (FUT) or the minimally invasive follicular unit extraction (FUE). The transplantation process requires the placement of thousands of micro-grafts, each containing between one and three hairs. These micro-grafts are taken from a donor site on the side or back of the head, and are randomly implanted in the area of hair loss so that they will grow in a natural pattern.
Within about six weeks of hair restoration surgery, the transplanted hair falls out and is replaced as new hair grows in during the next four months. Sometimes, several transplantation sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired hair density.
