Varona Hair Restoration offers the most advanced techniques to treat hair loss. Explore your options below to see which hair loss procedure would best suit your needs.
FUE (follicular unit extraction) is one of the most effective techniques available for surgical hair restoration. While many surgeons rely on robot-assisted technology to perform the extraction part of this procedure, Dr. Christopher Varona manually extracts the hair grafts himself. He is renowned for his manual FUE techniques, his high-yield results, and for his ability to seamlessly incorporate the grafts into the patient’s natural growth pattern. The FUE technique has a quick recovery and does not create a linear scar.
FUT (follicular unit transplantation) is another highly sought-after surgical technique for hair restoration. With this method, a small strip of tissue is harvested from the back of the head. The grafts are then dissected and transplanted into thinning areas to restore density. While this procedure does leave a small scar at the back of the scalp, it is easily concealed in most cases. This technique is usually preferred by patients who need a significant restoration.
Facial Hair Transplantation
Over time, many men suffering from hair loss experience thinning and patchiness of facial hair. Dr. Varona uses both the FUE and FUT techniques to restore beard hair and produce a young, masculine aesthetic. A facial hair transplant can complement your natural features and help define your overall face shape. This procedure is also chosen by FTM transgender patients seeking facial masculinization.
Both men and women tend to experience eyebrow thinning with age. With advanced techniques like FUE and FUT hair restoration, it’s possible to restore eyebrow hair with natural-looking results. Eyebrow transplantation is also an excellent option for MTF transgender patients who are seeking feminine, defined eyebrows.
Female Hair Restoration
Although men have traditionally made up the majority of patients seeking hair restoration procedures, more and more women are discovering they are excellent candidates. Hair loss in women can be caused by many factors, including health conditions, genetics, and hormonal imbalances. Whatever the case may be, it can be very distressing to lose a physical characteristic that forms such an essential part of your identity and sense of femininity. Dr. Varona offers a full range of options for women seeking to restore a full head of healthy hair.
Transgender Hair Restoration
For transgender patients, having their external appearance align with their gender identity is an essential component of their overall transition. Dr. Varona closely collaborates with his FTM and MTF patients to help them achieve their aesthetic goals, whether they’d like to attain a masculine or feminine appearance. In addition to surgical hair restoration for the scalp, Dr. Varona also offers beard transplants, eyebrow transplants, and hairline lowering for transgender patients.
