Los Angeles Hair Transplant and Repair
Dr. Sean has expertise in correcting the appearance of poorly performed hair transplants resulting from sub-optimal techniques or outdated methods. Bad hair transplant techniques result in pluggy or unnatural looking hair lines. Unfortunately for many who had a bad hair transplant, the result was psychologically disastrous. The emotional aftermath of a bad hair transplant can be worse than the sadness one feels from losing hair.
Dr. Sean has been a major contributor to new methods, including the use of ACELL, for correcting the problems caused by outdated hair transplant procedures. The outdated procedures created many cosmetic problems such as unnatural hair lines, pluggy look, poor hair direction, and inconsistent hair growth.
Dr. Sean uses many innovative methods that help with redesigning and correction of bad hair transplants. Both procedures, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), are able to address these issues. Dr. Sean uses different techniques to resolve each problem to create a natural result.
The number of candidates who are benefiting from hair transplant repair methods will continue to grow as more people become aware that the older procedures can actually be corrected. Dr. Sean has not only mastered both Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) but also contributed to these techniques. These new techniques allow the most naturally looking hair growth and hair lines.
Both FUE and FUT techniques require substantial skills and profound knowledge and only performed well by limited number of physicians.
ACELL IS A Revolutionary Breakthrough
Regenerative medicine represents a revolutionary breakthrough in wound healing. Extracellular Matrix (ECM) is the material which holds cells together in the bodies of all mammals. ECM is like an information super highway loaded with information telling cells to grow, divide, and differentiate.
The ACELL includes a combination of Extracellular Matrix (ECM), growth factors, and proteins which stimulate and guide the process of tissue regeneration. The body recognizes the ECM signals and recruits the appropriate cell factors which differentiate according to what they should be. The process is a recapitulation of developmental biology.
A lot of older plugs cause scarring of skin tissue, which leads to the deformity of the skin and may prevent growth of future hair transplants. ACELL can help increase hair transplantation grafts survival in the scars and thus lead to better results. During the consultation with Dr Sean, examines each patient to determine if ACELL would be beneficial.
