Hair Transplant
Enjoy a Fuller, Natural-Looking Head of Hair in the Philadelphia Area

Men and women alike can experience hair loss, leading to anything from a receding hairline and growing bald patches to overall thinning that reveals an increasing amount of scalp. Having a full head of hair is often linked to confidence and a positive self-image, so for anyone who wants to do something about the problem, Dr. Brian Buinewicz offers hair transplants in the Philadelphia area.

There are numerous reasons why a person may lose their hair (a condition medically known as alopecia). Hair transplant treatments are especially effective for helping patients who are dealing with male pattern or female pattern hair loss—which develops as follicles weaken and shut down over time, primarily due to genetics—but they can also help in other situations where thinning and balding are a concern. The first step is to talk with Dr. Buinewicz, who can help to determine the root cause of any hair loss and determine whether a hair transplant treatment would be a good strategy for you.

To request a consultation for hair transplant in Doylestown, Flemington, and the greater Philadelphia area, contact Buinewicz Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa—with offices in Bucks County, PA, and Flemington, NJ—by calling 215.647.9668 or sending a message online.

What Is a Hair Transplant?

Unlike hair restoration treatments that focus on reviving failing follicles, hair transplants involve physically moving healthy follicles—known as hair grafts—from one area of the scalp to patches where healthy hair coverage is disappearing.

This hair restoration method has been around for decades, but modern hair loss treatments have been developed to provide superior, natural-looking results. The most advanced techniques involve harvesting small groups or individual follicles (known as the "follicular unit") from the back or sides of the scalp, where they tend to remain resistant to balding. These hair grafts are then individually implanted into small incisions made in the area where more hairs are desired. Once in place, the living follicles begin to produce healthy hair, which increases fullness. The old-fashioned strip method, which leaves the patient with a scar on the back of their head, has been replaced with individual harvesting of the follicular unit, so there is no visible scarring.

Patients who tried hair transplant surgery years ago and have been unhappy with their hair growth results may be good candidates who can benefit from the more modern techniques. Dr. Buinewicz can graft healthy follicles into areas treated previously with less-advanced practices, blending the results to create a more satisfying and natural-looking pattern.

What Are the Details of Hair Transplants at the Philadelphia Area's Buinewicz Cosmetic Surgery?

Anyone considering hair restoration surgery will first meet with Dr. Buinewicz for a personalized consultation. He will examine your scalp, explain the hair grafting process, and answer questions about everything from hair transplant cost to expected results.

The modern method of collecting donor hairs is known as follicular unit extraction or FUE. Once harvested in strips cut from the scalp by hand, follicles can now be collected via the automated NeoGraft® system, which allows for a faster and more precise treatment. The hair grafts are cut in incredibly detailed dimensions, boosting follicle survival rates.

Hair transplant procedures are performed with the patient awake under a local anesthesia only, making the process safer and more comfortable. It also helps to reduce sensation as Dr. Buinewicz prepares the hair transplant treatment area by making tiny incisions in the recipient site. He uses his experience, knowledge of the scalp and hair growth, and an artistic eye to create natural-looking patterns that reference your previous look and complement your remaining hair.

Hair transplant surgery is a meticulous process, but patients find that the results are worth it!

What Happens After a Hair Transplant?

Hair grafts need time to settle in and get firmly established in their new "homes" in the scalp. Expect to see shedding in the months after a hair transplant, as the follicles kick out hairs and begin to grow new ones. About six to nine months after your hair transplant, the hair grafts tend to fall into an established cycle, with the desired results of a fuller head of hair seen within a year or two.

What Else Is Available at Buinewicz Cosmetic Surgery?

Hair transplants tend to be treatments of choice for men and women who are getting older, which tends to go hand in hand with more changes than just balding. The gradual development of everything from fine lines and creases to stubborn pockets of fat can be addressed with modern strategies, including laser treatments, wrinkle relaxers, dermal fillers, and even injectables that reduce a double chin (Kybella®).

While some patients are seeking hair grafts, others want to get rid of unwanted hair on their face or body. Laser hair removal is a popular treatment that provides long-lasting smooth skin without the need for shaving or waxing.
