Surgical Hair Transplants: Raleigh, North Carolina
Our basic philosophic approach begins with a time-honored principle: “Do one thing and do it well.” At Jernigan’s Hair Replacement Clinic in Raleigh, we don’t do face lifts, tummy tucks, breast implants, etc. We concentrate our energies on performing the best hair transplantation procedures possible, including beard and eyebrow transplants.
We move four to six times as much hair as the standard approach, using follicular unit grafts throughout producing a completely natural result.
Transplantation Skill, Artistry and Technique
The decision to take action against hair loss can be, for some individuals, a difficult one. By choosing the most qualified hair restoration expert, the decision becomes an easier one to make. However, no surgeon can achieve this goal alone. Hair transplantation, perhaps more that any other surgical procedure, depends on the assistance of skilled medical personnel in a ‘team’ framework.
Knowledge and Experience
The relationship between Dr. Grant Koher and each one of his patients is a very personal one. Each patient is treated as a unique individual.
Doctor Grant Koher or one of his trained staff members conducts each hair transplant consultation, and performs each hair transplant procedure in an unhurried manner, one at a time, with no other distractions. The results have been extremely high patient satisfaction and an reputation for excellence among his peers.
We try very hard to match the realistic expectations of our patients with what we can actually achieve. Before any surgery is ever scheduled, Dr. Koher always makes certain that a strong sense of mutual trust exists between himself and the patient.
Everything we do – the time and care with which we approach each procedure at our clinic – is geared toward creating a natural result that is both priceless and timeless.
Different Hair Transplant Methods
At Jernigans in Raleigh, Dr. Koher’s outstanding professional staff is thoroughly trained in the very latest hair transplant techniques.
Regarding what types of grafts are to be used, we are not “locked in” or programmed to do hair transplantation with only one narrowly defined method, but rather offer highly refined, follicular unit transplant sessions as well as “combination” sessions, which feature the use of both FU grafts and MFU’s (multi-follicular grafts) in combination with Follicular unit extraction (FUE).
Surgical Hair Transplantation for Women
Women are often embarrassed and self conscious of their hair loss. Day to day styling only reminds them even more of the struggle in dealing with their thinning hair. Women experience hair loss for many reasons. The most common is called androgenetic alopecia which is an overall thinning of top and sides of the scalp. Other reasons for hair loss in women can be from medical problems such as hormonal changes, thyroid disease. Even new medications and life altering events can lead to hair loss. In fact over 30 million women live with this condition everyday.
Women thought for a long time that wigs and hair pieces were their only option. But over the last several years women are realizing that they are also great candidates for hair transplant surgery. Hair transplants can thicken up a thin area, place hair in a bald area, restore a hairline and even recreate your temporal points.
The transformation in the appearance of a woman who has undergone hair transplant surgery can be quite dramatic, even after only two sessions. For most women, two or three sessions are required to achieve optimal results.
It is generally a well accepted fact that women are usually much more devastated by hair loss than men, because it is not socially accepted for a woman to have less than a “full head of hair.” It is very gratifying to restore the “fullness” to the hair of such patients.

The Facts About Hair Transplants
What is Hair Transplantation?
Hair transplantation is simply the transferring of hair from a “permanent” area of the scalp to another area in which hair has fallen out due to heredity or some other more unusual cause. This “permanent” hair is harvested in the form of a narrow “strip” of hair, which is then meticulously cut up under microscopic magnification to produce hundreds of tiny follicular unit grafts of 1-3 hairs each. Also, in some sessions, small “multi-FU grafts” of two or three adjacent follicular units are used.
Does Hair Transplant Surgery Really Work?
Yes. The transplanted hair is removed from one area of the scalp (donor site) which has been genetically pre-programmed to produce healthy hair for a lifetime. Then using magnification, follicular unit grafts containing one, two, three or four hairs are meticulously transferred called “planting” into the bald or thinning areas the recipient site.
What Does Hair Restoration Surgery Involve?
Hair transplant surgery for men as well as hair transplant surgery for women is done under local anesthetic on an outpatient basis. A routine panel of blood work is required prior to the procedure. The procedure is done in one day. The amount of grafts dictates the amount of time needed. Lunch is served and clients usually watch a movie of their choice during the procedure. Afterwards, they are usually able to drive themselves home. Follow-up care is thoroughly explained and Dr. Grant Koher and his staff are available twenty-four hours a day after surgery to answer questions.
