BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwire - Oct 17, 2012) - Dr. James E. Vogel, a board-certified Baltimore plastic surgeon, specializes in hair restoration and is committed to remaining on the cutting-edge of the field. As a doctor who focuses on the aesthetics of the procedure, Dr. Vogel places his emphasis on creating natural looking results. The achievement of this natural look is why Dr. Vogel remains current with the latest findings in the field. In an article he published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, he says, "State-of-the-art techniques in hair transplantation result in hair restoration that is almost always undetectable as surgery."
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a relatively new surgical option that removes patients naturally growing hair from a donor site (usually the back of the head) and transplants the healthy follicles to the new site. Dr. Vogel points out several advantages to this technique. As a result of the small tool used to remove individual follicular units during the procedure, patients have a more comfortable experience compared to the conventional method of strip removal for hair harvesting. FUE hair transplant is also a minimally invasive technique that allows for a faster recovery time. Because the hair follicle units are being handled individually, Dr. Vogel stresses that the procedure allows for a more personally tailored and natural look.
By using the most up-to-date methods of hair grafting, Dr. Vogel is able to help patients achieve a hairline that is aesthetically pleasing for the patient but still age-appropriate. He creates a natural transition zone between the forehead and the back of the scalp that simulates the hairline seen in mature men who retain their hair but still have some natural thinning and recession. At his Baltimore plastic surgery practice, Dr. Vogel strives to remain at the forefront of hair transplant procedures by incorporating the newest innovations the field has to offer to ensure patients receive the safest and most effective treatment.
