For nearly forty years, the specialists at The Griffin Center of Hair Restoration and Research have been dedicated to providing the most effective treatments for hair loss. Decades of experience have given Dr. Edmond Griffin and Dr. Ashley Curtis the opportunity to refine and perfect their treatment methods and to determine exactly what factors contribute to achieving the best possible hair transplantation results. Here are some of the key elements that we believe are essential to making sure that your hair restoration procedure is a complete success.
Even though genetic pattern baldness, or androgenetic alopecia, may be responsible for as much as 95% of all hair loss cases, every single case of alopecia still requires its own diagnosis. No two patients are ever exactly alike, and formulating the most effective treatment plan requires understanding the underlying causes of each patient’s hair loss. Only by examining a patient carefully and evaluating their individual medical issues can we reach a conclusive diagnosis and choose the right procedures for their specific needs.
In any follicular unit grafting procedure, individual follicular units can be damaged during dissection, making them useless for re-implantation and, most importantly, re-growth. Our experienced surgical technicians, many of whom have worked and trained directly under Dr. Griffin for more than twenty years, have the exacting skill necessary to preserve a greater percentage of follicular units during the dissection process. This higher survival rate means that we can produce more viable grafts from a smaller area of scalp and achieve better overall results.
Natural-looking coverage during hair transplantation requires an experienced hair restoration surgeon that can carefully angle each individual follicular unit to mirror the hair’s original growth pattern. Care also needs to be taken to ensure that the grafts are not so crowded that they over tax the available blood supply in one area. Our surgeons, Dr. Griffin and Dr. Curtis, not only have the experience to maximize the number of follicular grafts that “take” during a surgical session, but also use a special technique and type of closure that allows the hairs to grow through the scar line, making the surgical scar at the donor site even less visible.
By maintaining our high standards and keeping these fundamental elements in mind, our team at The Griffin Center is able to consistently achieve exceptional natural-looking hair transplant results.
