Hair loss is a common cosmetic concern for American adults. An estimated 80% of men and 50% of women experience hair thinning at some point in their lifetime. Fortunately, those who wish to retain a scalp with full, thick hair can improve their hairline with hair transplant surgery.
International Hair Institute is Chicago’s best hair restoration clinic. Although IHI only opened its doors a few years ago, Dr. Carlos Puig has over 30 years of experience helping patients with hair loss. His patients receive high-quality care at a reasonable, competitive price. It’s no wonder that IHI is the top-rated hair transplant clinic in the city.
In addition to having decades of experience, Dr. Puig’s credentials are unrivaled by surgeons across the country. He has previously served as president of both the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery and the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. For the latter organization, he also helped prepare its formal guidelines for hair restoration doctors. He is an active fellow in the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. He has published over 25 academic papers on the subject of hair restoration and has received the prestigious Golden Follicle Aware for his lifetime achievements in the field of hair transplants.
Throughout his 30+ year career, Dr. Puig has seen hair restoration techniques improve dramatically. He remains committed to providing his patients with useful innovations. Utilizing the latest strategies, equipment and technology allows Dr. Puig to achieve the best possible outcomes for his hair loss patients. Currently, he finds consistent success with follicular unit extraction (FUE hair transplant) and follicular unit transplantation (FUT hair transplant). FUE hair transplant extracts follicular units individually from the back of the scalp to transplant to the desired site. FUT takes a strip from the back of the scalp, removes the follicular units under a microscope, and transplants them to the desired site. Ultimately, the amount and placement of the patient’s existing hair, as well as their personal goals, help determine which approach is most beneficial.
Surgical hair restoration is the most effective way to address thinning hair, baldness, or a receding hairline. International Hair Institute is the best hair loss clinic in Chicago because we help patients to achieve attractive results. Since hair restoration techniques harvest patients’ actual follicles, hair transplant creates a realistic result.
The results from hair transplant are indefinite, with most patients able to enjoy a fuller head of hair for the rest of their lives. Dr. Puig can recommend medications like finasteride and minoxidil to help prevent future hair loss. Maintaining this hair does not require extra effort like custom shampoos or chemical formulas — once the hair has regrown, patients can simply shampoo this new hair like all normal hair.
Best of all, discomfort and downtime from hair loss treatment are minimal. Although it takes many months for transplanted hair to come in at its maximum thickness, the good news is that patients can resume their normal work and social schedule while this regrowth occurs.
