Hair loss can affect both your appearance and your confidence. Dr. Shim Ching is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in hair restoration surgery at his Honolulu, Hawaii, practice. Using the latest, most advanced hair transplant techniques available, he can restore thinning or balding areas using your own natural hair.
How is hair restoration performed?
The medical process for hair replacement involves the transplantation of hair follicles from one area of the head to another. Hair follicles are found in good supply in virtually all men, even men with advanced baldness. These “lifelong hairs” are concentrated in areas at the back and sides of the head. One of the most popular devices used for hair restoration is the ARTAS®, which uses the follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique.
During the hair transplant procedure, we take excess hairs — follicles and all — from this plentiful area and relocate them to areas of thinning and balding on the top or front of the head. Grafts are placed one at a time in the thinning and balding areas. This procedure is done in a manner that results in natural-looking hairlines and density of hair.
Dr. Ching performs hair restoration within the comfort and safety of our Honolulu, Hawaii, office. Depending on the number of grafts required, the procedure may take between 2 and 6 hours.
