About Hair Restoration at Illume
At Illume in Milwaukee and Waukesha, our Board Certified Plastic Surgeons utilize their technical and aesthetic skills to provide each patient with the most natural result possible. Our plastic surgeons and medical hair restoration specialists use both Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and FUT Donor Strip harvesting techniques based on a patient’s specific needs and conditions. For men, FUE harvesting is often preferred, so that they can shave their hair short in the back without worry of a visible scar in the back of the head, giving natural looking results.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant
An FUE hair transplant is a minor surgical procedure that provides an effective solution for hair loss. FUE donor harvesting allows hair follicles to be extracted directly from the scalp in their naturally occurring groups of one to three hairs without a strip of the scalp having to be surgically removed. Instead of a scalpel, our plastic surgeons use advanced technology to comfortably extract your own individual hair follicles from the sides and back of your scalp, known as the donor site, and then re-implant them where you are experiencing hair loss. The result is a fuller, natural-looking hairline with no visible scarring. FUE hair transplant is popular with men who want more freedom styling. The FUE procedure can be done for both men and women
hair restoration Consultation
A personal consultation with one of our board certified plastic surgeons is the first step for anyone patient considering hair transplant surgery. During this meeting, one of our surgeons will assess your physical and emotional health and discuss your specific goals and treatment options for hair restoration.
other hair restoration treatment options
PRP Injectable Treatment for Hair Loss
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses a patient’s own blood to promote hair growth. PRP contains growth factors that regulate the healing cascade by signaling to surrounding cells to repair damaged tissue and regenerate new tissue. This in turn stimulates the hair follicles and improves the thickness and density of the hair.
Exosomes for Hair Loss
Exosomes are one of the most exciting therapy tools in regenerative medicine today. They have been used by clinicians in wound care, burns and aesthetic applications including post laser/post micro needling and hair loss therapy. Extracellular vesicles provide a natural and comprehensive activation of the body’s healing processes. Although not specifically FDA approved for hair loss, extracellular vesicles have shown promising clinical results for treating hair loss from physicians around the world.

Am I a good candidate for Hair Restoration?
If you’re experiencing the early signs of hair loss, non-surgical preventive techniques serve as an initial approach. While they require regular upkeep, they can effectively preserve your current hair and slow down the natural course of hair loss.
When it comes to surgical options, it’s important to exercise caution, given the limited number of donor hairs at your disposal. Allowing your hairline to mature a bit before pursuing surgical intervention is a good practice, but waiting until you’re completely bald should be avoided.
