Scalp Reduction/Facelift/hair Restoration?

FACELIFT AND SCALP REDUCTION
Facelifting and scalp reduction can be performed simultaneously, although scalp reduction and browlifting are most commonly linked together. For a patient in their 20's, microfollicular transplants, using an FUE technique, is probably best. I utilize the NeoGraft Automated FUE (follicular unit extraction) Hair Transplant System for hair restoration because it is the most advanced method of non-surgical hair transplantation. It is the least invasive procedure of its kind, requiring no scalpel incision and no sutures. One must be careful to not artificially lower the hairline excessively because the result can create problems in the future if thinning or balding progresses.
