Lost hair is more than just a cosmetic concern, it can greatly impact your self confidence and your entire outlook on life. Fortunately, at New England Center for Hair Restoration, we offer a variety of hair restoration techniques, such as ALMI™ fat transfer, to revive your appearance. Residents of Boston and the surrounding New England communities can learn more about this technique and how our team can help them reach their goals.
What is ALMI™ Fat Transfer?
ALMI™ fat transfer is an all-natural procedure that extracts stem cells and stromal cells from fat tissue before re-injecting these cells into the balding area. Developed for use in the scalp by Dr. Welter, this outpatient procedure maximizes the body’s natural healing processes to help regrow lost hair with a minimally-invasive approach.
How Much Does ALMI™ Fat Transfer Cost?
The cost of all ALMI™ fat transfer procedures is calculated on an individual basis. This allows us to customize each procedure to the needs of each patient and to ensure that each patient achieves the results they are seeking. We will calculate your pricing during your consultation. In an effort to ensure that our procedures are financially accessible, we accept a wide range of payment options, including convenient financing through CareCredit® and Union Medical Credit.
Am I a Good Candidate for ALMI™ Fat Transfer?
If you are experiencing hair loss and are seeking a more natural approach to regrowth, you could be a good candidate for ALMI™ fat transfer. However, the best way to determine your candidacy is to schedule a consultation. This will allow us to speak with you regarding your concerns and create a plan for reaching your aesthetic goals.
The bulb unit of the follicle contains important Stem cells which are important for maintaining healthy hair long term. These critical bulb cells live in the fatty tissue area and scalp below the dermis. As we age and bald, the scalp loses its essential fatty layer. Through the ALMI™ technique we can restore the fatty layer and provide the bulb of the follicle the support it needs to survive and maintain health.
What Happens During an ALMI™ Fat Transfer?
An ALMI™ fat transfer begins with extracting stem cells and stromal cell components from fat tissue. These cells are then re-injected into the areas of lost hair to prompt the body’s natural healing processes. In doing this, the body can reactivate dormant hair follicles, so that you can regrow a full head of hair.
What is Recovery Like After an ALMI™ Fat Transfer?
Recovery from an ALMI™ fat transfer is designed to be as comfortable and efficient as possible. However, each patient is unique so we will discuss the details of your recovery during your consultation. Rest assured, ALMI™ fat transfers are minimally invasive, and as a result, will create shorter downtime than their invasive hair restoration counterparts.
How Long Will My ALMI™ Fat Transfer Results Last?
The results of all ALMI™ fat transfer procedures are designed to be long-lasting so that you can enjoy your full, natural head of hair for many years to come. However, results will vary depending on the individual. Ultimately, the best way to determine the length of your results is to schedule a consultation.
