Follicular Hair Graft Technique in Ohio

Hair transplantation (Vari-Grafts)

Hair transplantation performed by Doctor Diamantis has evolved over the years, producing a more natural and fuller look. The best option is the vari-graft technique. It produces a more natural thicker result because the hair line is transplanted as it grows, in single teams of 1 to 4 hairs. While in the middle of the head, where density is most needed, larger groupings of hairs are transplanted. Once the hair has been moved, the follicles will naturally continue to grow.

Modern hair transplant involves four easy steps. First Dr. Diamantis borrows strong lifetime hair from the donor area typically the back of the head. Next, the donor hair is made into smaller vari-grafts consisting of 1-6 hair units. The third step is creating recepient sites across the thinning area. Finally, the new vital grafts are placed in the recepient sites.

Hair transplant surgery technology has evolved so much in recent years that hair can now be transplanted exactly the way it grows. What this means for you is a look that was never before possible and an appearance so natural, you may forget what is native hair and what hair is transplanted.

Understanding how the procedure works

Hair transplantation is minor outpatient surgery because it involves only the outer layer of the skin; the epidermis and the dermis, which contain the hair follicles (hair roots).

Every single hair follicle on the human scalp is genetically programmed before birth to either wither and die after a certain amount of time or to continue to grow as a permanent hair able to resist the effects of testosterone (hair loss hormone) for one’s entire life. Permanent, lifetime hairs are found in good supply in virtually all men, even severely bald men.

The “good” hair is concentrated in a horseshoe area at the back of the head. This region is called the donor area. Hair transplantation uses the excess hairs from this donor area and relocates them to areas of thinning and balding scalp. The actual removal and transplanting of the hair follicles is a simple outpatient procedure at Nature’s Way.  The most important aspect of hair transplantation is the artistic demand it requires. Like a fine artist, Dr. Diamantis has the skill to design a natural looking hairline that fits the shape of your face, your features, and your age. Each graft is skillfully placed in the proper area, position, and angle.

Natural Hairline Recreation The artistic techniques perfected at Nature’s Way since 1993 have allowed Dr. Diamantis to re-create living hairlines that are virtually indistinguishable from hairlines that have not suffered hair loss. Unlike many physicians who are still trying to learn these techniques, Dr. Diamantis is skilled at creating hairlines that look natural. The proof is displayed in the extreme close-up photographs located immediately below.  They are Nature’s Way patient hairlines which were restored using Nature’s Way vari– grafts by Dr. Diamantis.

Pursuing the Perfect Hairline- Of all Nature’s Way advances, perhaps those having the greatest impact on surgical hair restoration are our techniques for hairline re-creation. These techniques took a tremendous leap in the early 1980’s. For the first time, a transplanted hairline could look as soft and feathered as a man’s natural hairline.

In the 1990’s, Dr. Diamantis pioneered new techniques to achieve maximum coverage for balding and thinning areas behind the hairline and over the top and back of the head. By using  a variety of grafts (1’s, 2’s, 4’s) and angling them precisely to grow in a natural direction; he could add density to sparse, thinning frontal hair. Based on the amount of hair loss, during one or more sessions Dr. Diamantis could thicken sparse areas and achieve permanent fullness with transplanted hair.

These advances gave Nature’s Way patients a tremendous advantage over men who wore wigs.
Patients not only had density, they had their own natural hair to comb and style virtually any way they wished. After seeing hair transplants similar to a doll’s hair or corn rows, you may wonder, “Why aren’t there any great looking hair transplants?” Actually there are. But because people notice only bad transplants, they believe such results represent all restorations. We want to change that misperception by informing people about results Nature’s Way patients consistently enjoy. The simple fact is, great restorations go undetected. At Nature’s Way, our goal is not to just imitate nature…but to duplicate nature by using our modern techniques and your own hair to produce a result that is undetectable.

The Nature’s Way Technique: Where Science Meets Art 

A man’s hairline is a very critical aesthetic zone. To create a great looking hairline for you that will remain natural in appearance throughout your life, Doctor Diamantis selects fine, one or two hair units from your donor area that most mimic the hair  that you lost. Dr. Diamantis blends follicular units containing these fine hairs into your forehead. They are positioned precisely to match your original hair growth pattern and create a natural hairline that complements your face and features. When designing the hairline, be wary of inexperienced physicians who may position hairlines too low on the forehead. It will look inappropriate for the patient’s age and will look worse over time. After a resting period, Nature’s Way transplanted hairs in your new hairline begin and continue growing. These grafts are permanent and will grow indefinitely.

The Physician’s Art: Where Art Meets Science.
Most surgeons can successfully transplant hair to thinning and balding areas. However, perhaps 90% of a natural looking hair restoration is the result of a gifted surgeons skill and artistry. To produce a soft, natural and virtually undetectable hairline, the physician must have an aesthetic sense of balance and proportion to blend effectively the different hair textures and shading so they complement the patient’s age and features. A good hair restoration “should be seen by all, yet recognized by none”.
