No Need to Travel to Beverly Hills, Miami or Manhattan for Your Hair Transplant

July 1, 2010

PHOENIX, July 1 /PRNewswire/ — To receive the “gold standard” of hair transplant procedures used to require a trip to Beverly Hills, Miami, Manhattan or other locales. Not anymore! National Hair Centers, a local Phoenix-based hair restoration company, is the first in Arizona to offer the latest method in hair transplantation called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). This technique is the newest and least invasive procedure available to restore hair loss suitable for both men and women.

Traditional hair transplantation requires the surgical removal of strips of skin from the donor area, generally from the back or sides of the head. With FUE, the surgeon removes and transplants single follicular units (one to three hairs) at a time, from the donor area, and re-implants toward the front of the head, eliminating an incision. The result allows for faster healing and less recovery time. Scarring and sutures are non-existent. In addition, there is no post operative discomfort.

“FUE is definitely the state-of-the-art in hair restoration…the top of the line,” said Lisa Zimmerman, president of National Hair Centers. “While FUE is generally considered the latest advancement in hair transplants, only a few surgeons around the country have mastered it, as the technique required the highest level of expertise and experience to perform,” she said.

Chief of Surgery at National Hair Centers, Barry R. Weiss has perfected the technique of Follicular Unit Extraction. Dr. Weiss has over 30 years experience with hair transplants, performing thousands of procedures. He has been with National Hair Centers since 1997. According to Dr. Weiss, “Hair transplants are the only proven permanent solution to hair loss. It’s exciting to offer Arizonans this ‘patient friendly’ technique as an option.”

One person who has experienced both techniques is Dave McKenna, NHC Image Consultant. He recently augmented his original hair transplant with the new FUE procedure. “There’s really no comparison between the two procedures. With the FUE procedure, there was no…and I mean zero recovery time. I experienced no pain or down time at all,” he said.

Individuals wishing to learn more about the FUE procedure, please contact National Hair Centers at 602-230-0000 or visit www.NationalHair.com.
