Hair loss medication no longer cutting it? Then consider hair transplantation surgery at Cooley Hair Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. We offer Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) at our Charlotte hair restoration clinic. 

Follicular Unit Transplantation at Cooley Hair Center

Dr. Jerry Cooley offers follicular unit transplantation (FUT) surgery to his hair loss patients interested in natural results. By harvesting healthy follicles found on the back and sides of the scalp, Dr. Cooley can rebuild hairlines and restore his patients’ hair to a fuller, more youthful appearance.

The patient is given a sedative and the scalp is also numbed using local anesthesia. Afterwards, Dr. Cooley removes a strip of the scalp from either the back or side of the head. Hair located in these areas is resistant to hair loss and retains a high survival rate when moved to other areas of the scalp. The donor site is then sutured closed using stitches that will be removed in 2-3 weeks.

After preparation, each follicular unit is placed individually into the targeted areas of the scalp. Dr. Cooley takes great care in constructing a new hairline that appears natural, mirroring the patterns of surrounding hair growth for results that are seamless.

The FUT procedure can last several hours, varying on a patient-by-patient basis, and though results vary for each individual, visible results can be expected within 6-9 months.

Follicular Unit Excision at Cooley Hair Center

We offer Follicular Unit Excision (FUE), and utilize new techniques and the latest hair loss research to produce natural results that avoid the pitfalls of past procedures.

FUE is completed under local anesthesia to ensure patient comfort and satisfaction. Dr. Cooley utilizes a small handheld punch device that removes individual follicular units. Grafts are taken from the back and sides of the head, from areas that are more resistant to hair loss.

All grafts are placed in a holding solution containing special vitamins and nutrients to preserve the follicular units. Then Dr. Cooley transplants them one-by-one into the targeted areas, carefully placing them in patterns that mimic the natural growth of the hair in the surrounding area.

Scarring is virtually nonexistent following the procedure. Patients can expect to experience a significant improvement in their hair density in about six months. New hair growth will continue to improve for up to 18 months. FUE results should last a lifetime, and patients can expect to enjoy their fuller, more youthful head of hair for many years.
