Dr. Keller of North Shore Hair Transplant Specialists has over 13 years of experience in hair transplantation and performs hair transplants exclusively at his clinic located in Chicago, IL.

Why Dr. Keller is recommended.

Dr. Richard Keller specializes in providing premier follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) and follicular unit extraction (FUE) and tailorizes a technique specific to his patients' needs.  He performs surgery on one patient per day at North Shore Hair Transplant Specialists, his hair restoration clinic in Chicago in order to grant full attention to his patient.

Dr. Keller has the experience and staff to perform over 3000 follicular unit grafts using ultra refined follicular unit grafting in a single session when appropriate for the hair transplant patient.  Dr. Keller uses precision controlled techniques that have changed the way donor grafts are harvested and placed. N.S.H.T.S also uses all the latest methods and techniques including the expansion technique, microscopic ultra refined follicular dissection and extraction, feathering techniques, unique hairline framework design and an intricate 2 layer trichophytic closure for the FUSS procedure. This provides natural looking density in one procedure. 

Dr. Keller is well known for creating aesthetically pleasing hairlines with artistic ability.  Dr. Keller believes in maintaining a level of flexibility in hair transplantation recognizing the uniqueness of each hair transplant patient.  His extremely meticulous nature drives him to pay special attention to detail.  Dr. Keller uses all single haired follicular units to create a natural hairline in order to properly frame the face and produces a natural crown swirl using a mix of larger and smaller follicular unit grafts to mimic nature.

Dr. Keller uses uses the manual extraction technique and the motorized SAFE System to perform FUE extractions as he believes they are more versatile for various hair characteristics and patients and follicular transection is reduced. 

Dr. Keller uses varying cutting instruments to make recipient incisions depending on the area of the scalp and patient’s needs.  However, he tends to favor sharp point precut blades as small as .75mm for 1 and 2 haired follicular unit grafts.  In order to follow the natural direction of the hair, Dr. Keller often creates incisions at an angle somewhere between a sagital and coronal incision.  Adjustments are made accordingly in order to follow the natural flow and direction of the hair while minimizing transection of the existing native hair.

Dr. Keller uses a single blade to excise the donor area to minimize transection and uses the trichophytic closure technique to close the donor area in order to help properly camouflage the scar.  Follicular unit grafts are dissected with a microscope by his highly trained hair transplant technicians of up to 13 + years experience and then placed into recipient sites under Dr. Keller’s personal supervision.

What is the Best Hairline Design for a Hair Transplant?

8/13/2010

Hairlines are often created differently with different ethnic hair styles, head shapes, degrees of balding and the patientís desires taken into consideration. In my practice, a patientís hairline usually follows their natural hairline prior to hair loss.
