Hair Transplant Treatment in Chevy Chase, MD
Automated Follicular Unit Extraction Hair Transplant Procedure at Kung Plastic Surgery, P.A.
Balding is one of those issues to which there doesn’t seem to be a totally satisfactory solution – you could try creams and sprays, but those results are temporary and the cost of buying more and more product can be prohibitive.
If you’re looking for a better way to get a natural-looking, fuller heard of hair, our cosmetic surgery office has a solution for you. Dr. Kung and his team offer minimally-invasive hair transplant treatment in Chevy Chase, MD to help you feel great and look younger.
Natural-Looking, Effective Hair Replacement
The standard procedure for transplanting hair involves surgical incision along the base of your scalp, in order to lift patches of hair and place them in areas where hair is thinning. But with the automated FUE (follicular unit extraction) hair transplant procedure, there are no incisions, no staples and stiches, and no scarring.
Thanks to Dr. David Kung and his team of friendly medical professionals, the FUE hair transplant is now available at the Kung Plastic Surgery clinic.Our method of hair replacement takes individual follicles of donor hair and places them in areas where you are experiencing balding. This microsurgery treatment doesn’t leave a scar and helps you get permanent, fuller hair.
Why Consider Automated FUE Hair Transplant?
This procedure is revolutionary, when compared with the standard surgical approach to hair transplantation. Unlike hair transplant surgery, which requires extensive downtime and produces scarring, the FUE hair replacement system is:
Comfortable – There is no need to use a scalpel. This treatment removes and implants individual hair follicles.
Minimally-Invasive – Dr. Kung doesn’t remove strips of hair via surgical methods. FUE removes hairs at their base (the follicle) and implants them in balding areas.
Faster Healing – Because there are no incisions, you heal more quickly and can get back to your normal daily routine. Our automated system for hair replacement even shortens the actual procedure time.
Best of all, FUE hair transplantation produces natural results – you won’t have that obvious hair transplant look. Because follicles of hair are removed from the donor area and placed in balding areas one-by-one, Dr. Kung can more precisely control the final outcome and ensure your treatment goals are met.
Getting Started with Hair Transplant Treatment in Chevy Chase
If you have questions about how our natural hair transplant procedure can help you, contact our office to schedule your consultation appointment. Dr. Kung can determine your balding pattern and transplant hair in areas where it will serve the most aesthetic benefit.
Good candidates for microsurgical hair replacement therapy are those who have sufficient donor hair to move to balding areas. Once your transplant is complete, you will experience some shedding, after which time your new, permanent growth will come in naturally and continue to grow, as it normally would.
Hydrasolve Liposuction Available in Chevy Chase, MD at Kung Plastic Surgery
If your body is prone to storing fat in some problem areas, there’s often not much that proper exercise and healthy eating habits can do.
Kung Plastic Surgery is proud to offer their patients the benefit of Hydrasolve™ lipoplasty in Chevy Case, MD. Our office is the first in the entire Mid-Atlantic region to offer tissue liquefaction treatment in the form of HydraSolve™ therapy. Be among the first in the country to experience this new form of liposuction, which has continued to produce fast and amazing results.
What is Hydrasolve Lipoplasty?
Traditional liposuction involves removing fat build-up with a tube and suctioning action. In comparison, Hydrasolve lipoplasty uses a low-pressure tumescent solution that is targeted precisely at problem spots on your body. This method can actually soften fat so that it is more easily removed. Hydrasolve™ gives patients the results they’ve been looking for, in a way that is:
• Able to minimize downtime
This Tissue Liquefaction Technology requires less force for fat cell displacement and removal, so you recover quickly and do not encounter as many side effects as standard liposuction or other methods of fat removal treatment. Kung Plastic Surgery is the only practice in the entire mid-Atlantic region to offer this procedure.
Our unique method of liposuction is ideal for just about every patient — those whose targeted areas include mild to moderate fat accumulation. Hydrasolve™ is way to remove stubborn fat, without harsh procedures and long recovery times or increased side effects and discomfort.
Lipoplasty Surgery in Chevy Chase
We start the cosmetic fat removal process by administering anesthesia. In some cases, HydraSolve™ is only used in conjunction with a local anesthetic, depending on your lipoplasty needs and which areas are going to be treated. Incisions involved in treatment are small and help Dr. Kung apply the solution to liquefy fat cells. Gentle suction is then used to smooth and trim areas of concern, for a better contoured body shape.
We typically advise that our lipoplasty patients avoid strenuous activities for up to 10 days after their treatment is complete. Any swelling or discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter medications, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. We’ll welcome you back into our cosmetic plastic surgery office for a follow-up visit around one week after your treatment.
