You may be wondering what to expect when you come for hair restoration for men and women. Read below for information on our transplantation services, as well as for reasons why you should come to us for hair transplants for men and women.
First, you should understand what hair transplantation entails: it’s an out-patient, surgical procedure performed by licensed surgeons that move individual hair follicles from a part of your body, known as the ‘donor site’, and implanting them on a balding part of your body, which is the ‘recipient site’. We usually take hair follicles from what is known as the “wreath” area of your head – the sides and back, where hair always grows – no matter how much hair you’ve lost from the top of your head. Hair transplantation is effective as an alopecia treatment and works for many other causes of hair loss as well.
This procedure is performed under a local anesthetic and is minimally invasive. We’ll take grafts containing hair follicles to transplant to where your hair is thinning.
Hair actually grows in a group of one to four hairs. Hair replacement for men transplant procedure will harvest your hair in these groupings. This state-of-the-art transplantation technique achieves a natural appearance, one that looks almost identical to how your hair used to look. This is called strip harvesting and it’s what we’re known for around the world and why our hair loss treatment for men and women is considered by many experts to be the best around.
Aside from surgical hair transplantation, for those that are looking for a short-term hair loss treatment, there are three main medically-approved options, but they aren’t as effective as our surgical hair transplant procedures for men and women.
Permanent hair loss can be treated by hair replacement procedures, such as hair transplantation methods (such as micro-grafting, slit grafting, punch grafting), and by scalp reduction. The type of hair loss as well as the patient’s circumstances and desires determine which hair replacement procedures are most suitable.
