Hair Restoration Services

International Hair Surgical Group specializes in advanced hair restoration procedures known as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) – also known as strip harvesting. The FUE method removes individual follicular units from the hair restoration patient’s donor area with no linear scar. The FUT procedure allows us to safely gather a larger quantity of hair and transplant in a shorter period of time. No one procedure is best for everyone. Dr. Schwinning will carefully examine each patient’s scalp to determine which method is best for them and provide alternative methods of hair restoration for those who do not fit the criteria.
