A vast amount of men, in the US today, are affected by hair loss, hair thinning and degrees of baldness. Women may also suffer this malady, leading to depression and lack of confidence.
The leading cause of hair loss in men and women is androgenetic alopecia or pattern baldness. With this condition, hormones combined with hereditary aspects are responsible for hair thinning and baldness.
A receding hairline precedes male pattern baldness and worsens over a lifetime. In females, thinning occurs across the top of the scalp, leaving the hairline. Family hereditary and age of onset are important factors.
Oral medications and topical solutions may work for some people with mild hair loss and could also be combined with micrograft hair restoration. Most hair pieces look obvious and are hard to maintain. That is why Micro-Hair Restoration provides relief from those problems and give a natural look.
Micro-Hair Restoration surgery is done with local anesthesia in our comfortable surgical suite. Hundreds of micro-grafts will be implanted in one or more sessions, depending on a patients desires. Each graft is made up of 1 to 3 hairs. The hair is removed from a site at the back of the patients head. They are then implanted in the predetermined areas. The new micro-grafts provide natural looking results as opposed to the larger grafts previously used, giving a ‘doll hair’ look.
After the surgery is completed, your implanted area will be protected with a surgeon cap. Most people experience mild discomfort and itching following surgery.
The new implanted hair falls out in a couple weeks and starts to grow again in 3 months. Another treatment can be done once this hair has grown in. Once the patient is happy with the outcome of the hair implant style, no further treatments are ever needed. It may seem to be a costly venture but in fact is less than other remedies when calculated over a lifetime.
