What is Surgical Hair Restoration?


Surgical hair restoration is a cosmetic procedure designed to help men and women in Fort Myers who are unhappy with the appearance and growth of their hair.

At Dr. Mandraccia's cosmetic surgery office, we offer two types of hair restoration. These include:

  • Follicular unit extraction (FUE) - This technique involves removing small units of hair, between 1 and 4 pieces at a time, and transplanting them to the area of treatment to facilitate growth. This process induces less physical trauma to the scalp than other methods and results in more inconspicuous scarring.
  • Platelet rich growth factor (PRGF) hair restoration - This procedure is a more advanced surgical hair restoration method that utilizes the unique components of your blood to naturally stimulate the growth and regeneration of cells. By injecting your own plasma into your scalp in the affected areas, Dr. Mandraccia can facilitate new growth in balding areas.

Both methods of surgical hair restoration are safe and effective. To best determine which method is right for you, Dr. Mandraccia will need to assess your needs and aesthetic goals during your personal consultation.
