Thinning hair can occur in both men and women, and can interfere with building self-confidence in your appearance. But loss of hair no longer needs to be a permanent part of your life. We offer revolutionary hair transplant options performed by an expert in the field.
At Seattle Hair Surgery, Dr. Cole uses cutting-edge techniques and technology to reverse the process of hair loss. With a hair transplant in Seattle, Dr. Cole can restore your hair to a youthful and rejuvenated look. This is typically accomplished through one of the following methods:
- FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation)
- FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)
However, at Hair Surgery Seattle, Dr. Cole offers FUE exclusively. It provides better results, easier recovery, and less scarring.
What Is Follicular Unit Extraction?
FUE uses your own hair to restore your balding areas. However, the main difference is that hair follicles are harvested individually instead of as a strip. These follicles are transplanted to the target area individually. Similar to FUT, FUE takes about one year to reach full results, and haircuts become an option.
Overall, patients tend to have better results through FUE. Not only is there less scarring, but the results look much more like your natural head of hair.
What Is Follicular Unit Transplantation?
Also called the strip procedure, FUT remains the most popular hair transplant method. A hair surgeon removes a strip of skin that has healthy hair and relocates it to a target area. Once the strip is divided into perfectly-sized units, they are placed strategically around your balding areas. Traditional hair surgery methods used FUT, but it is quickly becoming less popular. For several reasons:
- It takes more time
- There can be line scarring
- Less natural appearance
For these reasons, Dr. Cole offers only FUE hair surgery. He believes that patients deserve only the best and most up-to-date methods for hair restoration.
A revolutionary new method, NeoGraft uses FUE to deliver quick, stunning results. Compared to traditional FUE techniques, it has several game-changing benefits. These include:
- Shortened recovery time
- Virtually no scarring
- Fewer restrictions on post-operation activity
Dr. Cole is specially trained in using the unique NeoGraft extraction tool. That means you will receive amazing results with less procedure time. Each follicle is extracted and transplanted with unprecedented precision. The results are the most natural-looking hair restoration available.
Is A Hair Transplant Right For Me?
The procedure that suits you will depend on your goals and desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Cole will discuss your expectations. Based on your needs, he will help you decide on which procedure matches them. Both procedures result in minimal scarring and allow you to wear your hair short. However, FUE allows for the shortest hair, even buzzed.
When you meet with Dr. Cole, it is essential to fully express your goals. Once he has a good idea of what you want in treatment, Dr. Cole will be able to develop an optimized plan.
How Much Does Hair Transplant Cost?
The total cost of your procedure will depend on the number of hair transplants needed. Also, your hair type and color can affect the number of necessary grafts to see results.
During your consultation and examination, Dr. Cole will provide you with a complete estimate for the cost of your treatment. The typical range is between $5000-15,000 per session. Many patients are able to reach their goals with a single session.
Before you start your treatment, Dr. Cole will provide you with a complete estimate, so there will be no surprises.

Recovery And Results
Immediately after your treatment you will be able to return home. Though there is no necessary downtime, we do recommend patients take a few days to let their scalp recover.
After some time, your hair may appear to thin. This is entirely expected. The hair from the transplanted follicles will fall out, but the follicles will replace it with newly grown hair. And, they continue to do so for years to come, giving you time to enjoy your youthful and vibrant head of hair.
