Hair Transplant Treatment
Hair transplantation is a cosmetic procedure that can provide a fuller head of hair by transplanting hair follicles from one area of the head to a balding area.
Why Choose Hair Transplant Surgery?
Hair loss happensto both men and women. The most common cause of hair loss is androgenic alopecia, which typically results in hair loss along the front hair line or the crown of the head. If you are experiencing this type of hair loss, you could be an excellent candidate for hair transplant surgery.
There are two common methods of harvesting healthy hair follicles from one part of the head in order to transplant them to a balding spot:
- Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
In a FUT hair transplant, a thin strip of hair is removed from the donor area. This procedure requires stitches that must be removed in one week, which may result in a scar. If you require a larger hair transplant, the results are generally superior with the FUT procedure.
- Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
FUE is a hair transplant technique in which each hair graft is removed from the donor area one by one. In many cases, the entire scalp will be shaved in order to spread out the donor grafts. For patients who prefer to wear their hair short, the FUE procedure can be a preferred option, as any scarring will also be spread out and thus less noticeable.
With today’s technology, hair transplants can look completely natural. It is importantto find an experienced surgeon who understands the aesthetics and subtle nuances of recreating your unique natural look.
Hair Restoration Alternatives
While hair transplant surgery can be effective for certain types of hair loss, it is not for everyone who experiences thinning hair. Further, the surgery is an all-day procedure requiring mild sedation that many patients wish to avoid.
If you are looking for an alternative to hair transplant surgery, other hair restoration options include:
- Botox Vitamin Hair Replacement
Botox hair replacement is an excellent alternative to hair transplantation to improve hair growth in specific localized areas of the scalp. The procedure involves a scalp injection to improve blood flow and rejuvenate the skin in this region, which can lead to increased hair growth.
