Providence, January 8 -- DiStefano Hair Loss Restoration Centers ( offers a range of service at its hair transplant RI office. One of those services is the DiStefano Individual Graft Technique (IGT) which is unique to DiStefanoHair Loss Restoration Centers.

“We’re the only hair loss restoration center offering IGT,” said Steve Matteo, a consultant with DiStefano. “It’s something that no other hair transplant RI office offers.”

The process, developed by world renowned surgeon, Dr. Mark DiStefano uses special microsurgical tools that remove individual hair follicles one at a time from the back of the scalp and aid in increasing the viability of each follicle once placed in the recipient area of the scalp. The IGT procedure is used at the hair transplant RI office by Dr. DiStefano as well as Dr. Christian Heinis.

Like the Follicular Unit Extraction method used by other hair loss restoration surgeons, IGT doesn’t require an incision or sutures and there is no linear scar at the back of the head. Because of this, patients undergoing the Individual Graft Technique, have a faster recovery time and they can wear their hair very short because there is no visible scar.

The hair transplant Providence office also does follicular unit transplantation (FUT). Unlike IGT, the donor hair is provided by a strip of scalp that is surgically removed from the back of the head. Technicians then divide each follicle containing from one to four hairs from the strip for transplantation. With FUT, the hair loss restoration surgeon can transplant more follicles in a single session.
