The Loria FUE Procedure is a unique Hair Transplant technique and is performed by specially trained, skilled and experienced Surgical Teams. The Loria FUE Hair Transplant technique, which utilizes a combination of Stereoscopic Magnification, special ‘non-crush’ graft instrumentation, specialized graft extraction, placement, preservation methods, and Hepa air quality treatment rooms, is the standard at all Loria Hair Restoration offices. The Best Hair or Nothing!℠
The Artas may be used in conjunction with the Loria FUE Procedure. This depends on whether the Patient requests the Artas.
Dr Loria’s trained Surgical Team will use the Loria FUE Hair Transplant Technique but can be used exclusively or in combination with the Artas Robot.
Both treatments are state-of-the-art modalities and provide exceptional patient results.
to provide the information for Patients. Why phone and video consultations? This is due to patients flying from all over the United States and other countries to have these exclusive techniques performed, so a formal in-office consultation is often not necessary nor convenient for the Patients. The website provides most of the information needed for a patient to make an intelligent decision. After the patient is educated on Dr Loria’s Hair Restoration process, a Hair Transplant Treatment is scheduled by simply calling the office.
At Loria Hair Restoration we pride ourselves on not only providing the state-of-the-art technologies and services to each and every Patient, but also provide reasonable fees. If you noticed, Dr Loria actually places his fees on the website, under the Fees Section. Why? Dr Loria believes in not only full disclosure, but wants to demonstrate open, honest, and a no pressure situation for the patients while making the decision. Many doctors will come in for a consultation and try to ‘pitch you’ or give you a ‘deal on the spot’ … this puts undue pressure on patients. Dr Loria does not use car salesman tactics… just open and upfront information for all patients to see. Regarding the fees, Dr Loria wanted to mention this here, again, because his desire is to reach most if not all Patients who desire this revolutionary technology, not just the wealthy.
The Patient is greeted with excitement upon arrival to the office. This enthusiasm is due to knowing that the patient will receive the best hair transplant available today… and the staff is thrilled and eager to provide such a great service for our patients.
Medical paperwork will be filled out by the Patient before the formal treatment begins.
The highly trained and skilled Physician Assistant will review the medical forms, and then discuss the patient’s expectations, donor availability, and procedures needed to meet those expectations. Typically, the Staff would have reviewed some if not most of this information by the phone and video consultation prior, but it will be reviewed again upon patient arrival.
A detailed discussion will occur with the patient using Dr Loria’s UVW and T-UVW Hairline Design Method. This method was designed so patients can see that there are over 100 hairline variations that will looks great on each patient, so there is not just ‘one’ great hairline, there are many.
After the Hairline has been determined, the other areas of concerned are discussed and marked out for placement of grafts.
The patient is then brought to a special treatment room that is designed to eliminate/minimize bacteria and particles in the air. The Air filtration used, called Ultra-Hepa Systems, is in place to protect the patient and the hair grafts from getting contaminated from airborne particles and airborne bacteria. Hepa filtration is rarely seen in a Hair Transplant Treatment Room, but this is standard at Loria Hair Restoration.
We at Loria Hair Restoration are very sensitive to our patient’s comfort, so we take great care in providing a comfortable experience using mild sedation. The medications we give are taken by mouth (such as Valium for example), to relax and provide a great calming effect so the Patient can have an enjoyable and peaceful experience. The procedure uses only local anesthesia which is very safe for the patient. After anesthesia is completed the procedure begins.
Once Anesthesia has been completed, the donor area, where the follicular units (FU’s or Grafts) are located, will be harvested. Typically, a minimum of 1000 or even up to 3000 grafts can be done in one sitting. Please be aware that each FU has 1-4 hairs in it. Do not be ‘fooled’ by unscrupulous doctors who provide 1000 ‘hairs’ per treatment, for example. Always request the number of Follicular Units being provided, NOT hairs. In addition, make sure that the Follicular Units are NOT dissected into single hairs… this is not necessary, but with one exception…. The need for more hairline single hair FU’s. Another critical note is that the hairline consists of different hairs. These hairs are finer and are typically in 1-2 hair groupings. Dr Loria’s Staff is trained to harvest special thin hairs at the nape of the neck, a key feature and detail, to make the hairline look as natural as possible. This critical detail is often overlooked.
Once the Donor Grafts have been harvested, photographs are taken to document how many donor sites were taken. Keep in mind that there is typically a 1-5% extra amount of donor sites made. For example, if 1000 grafts need to be taken, about 10-50 additional donor graft ‘voids’ or ‘microscopic holes’ will be seen. Why is this? Because when a follicular unit is harvested, it may not come out of the skin, due to it be ‘partially’ harvested, so it is left there in the skin to re-grow.
