Hair Transplant Surgery Overview
Hair Transplant Surgery involves taking healthy, loss-resistant hair from a donor area of your scalp and carefully transplanting it into areas where you have experienced hair loss.
The donor area is usually at the back of your head and behind/above your ears where the hair growth is naturally resistant to hair loss. The transplanted hair continues to grow naturally and is firmly and permanently implanted.
The success of hair transplant surgery is greatly dependent on the quality, volume and density of your donor hair.
Is hair transplant surgery the most effective way to restore hair?
Transplant surgery has many advantages, and it's the only permanent solution for hair restoration. Transplanted hair looks and feels natural and requires little maintenance, but whether it's the best choice for you depends on your needs and expectations.
Is hair transplant surgery painful?
In general, you will feel minimal discomfort. Our doctors use mild sedatives and a local anesthetic. During the procedure, you simply need to relax and pass the time. Many of our clients watch movies, or listen to music during the procedure.
Are you a good candidate for hair transplant surgery?
Hair transplant surgery is an excellent, viable solution for most people and many types of hair loss. There are several factors we consider when assessing a patient’s situation including the current state of hair loss, the likely progression of loss, the availability of healthy donor hair, and the reasonableness of expectations.
How Much Does a Hair Transplant Cost?
The cost for a hair transplant will vary for each patient, since it is dependent on how many grafts you will need. During your initial consultation, you will be provided with all necessary information about the procedure and what the cost will be.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
Once again, it will depend on how many grafts you need. If a patient requires less than 800 grafts, the procedure will usually take around 4 hours. Patients who need 2500 grafts or more may need to be there for the entire day. This will all be discussed during your initial consultation.
How Long Does it Take to Heal?
After the procedure, you will experience some redness, swelling and there will be some scabbing. After 10 days, all of these should be completely healed.
What do the transplants look like before they start to grow?
Small scabs in the recipient area are common and generally present for 1 to 2 weeks. Over the next few weeks, most of the hair shafts will fall out. New hair shafts will begin to grow over the next 3 to 4 months. The final result will be visible in 8 to 10 months.
