As with any type of surgery, a Hair Transplant involves many steps and involves time and preparation by both the patient and surgeon. This affords the patient the opportunity to review the various implant options and to have the proper procedure which best fits the condition of their hair loss. Understanding this going into your first consultation can expedite the process and ease the time between your first consultation and final surgery.

Hair loss surgery – FUE to regain your hair crown
Even when just considering surgery as an option, proper consultation with the doctors is a must. Consultation offers the patient all surgical options, cost of surgery, recovery time and any issues that might occur during and after the surgery. Pre-op procedures will include measurements of the area of the hair loss, as well as the area which will be used for the donor hair. A dense and sufficient donor area will improve your results, although this is not always the case. The surgical process will be reviewed prior to the procedure, which is done to ensure the exact number of follicles being implanted as well as the exact area in which they will be placed. They will use an image of the scalp to ensure the agreed upon areas which are then replaced with the proper number of follicular units.
With the many options for Hair Replacement treatment, your initial consultation should include a discussion on the best option for you as well as the short-term and long-term effects. Because this is considered surgery, your actions after the operation will be a determining factor in the success and health of the transplant. Always follow the instructions of the surgeon for the days and weeks that follow, as swelling, soreness, itching and infection can occur.
Hair implants – Use your own hair to thicken hair / lower hairline
The advances in Hair Transplant surgery have come a long way since the “cornrows” and has become a more precise procedure with the implementation of smaller grafts. On average 98% of the replaced hair will continue to grow and will provide you with a full head of hair for years to come. There are many choices (also non-surgical and orally administered) out there for both men and women, so be sure to weigh all the available options which best fit your needs.
Hair loss in men usually starts on the top of the head and leaves a band of hair around the back and sides totally unaffected. Modern hair transplant procedures take advantage of the fact that these back and side hairs are immune to hair loss. They way they do this is by taking hairs from these areas and transplanting them to the affected areas, usually on the top of the head. This can be thought of as re-arranging the hairs to cover the naked spots.
FUE hair transplant procedure
The hairs are individually cut out of the scalp with the surrounding skin still attached. This is done in a very sparse and randomized pattern to minimize any obvious surgery. Once the hair is left to grow back out, it is practically undetectable that any hairs were taken out at all. This was the main problem with previous approaches whereby a linear strip of skin was cut out of the back of the head, leaving a nasty scar and long recovery periods. Now, since the hairs are done one by one, the recovery time is just a few days with very little scabbing. This means you can return to work within days.
This procedure is done with a very sophisticated machine that cuts out the hair with immense precision and then shoots them into the scalp with high-pressure air. This allows 2000 hairs to be transplanted within mere hours and only a few technicians necessary. In the past, many people were needed to take the strip of hair that was harvested from the back of the head and cut it all up into individual hairs. This is no longer necessary at all.
Hair transplant results
The overall success of this procedure is dependant on a few factors such as your goals, current amount of loss, age, hair type, budget, hair color, skin color etc. One ‘session’ usually consists of 1800 – 3000 hairs being transplanted. Depending on your speed of hair loss and the amount of the hairs that ‘stick’, this will determine your level of success within the first year of the operation.
Many patients choose to have more than one session and come back later to get more done. This can yield amazing results as the previous work is touched up and more hairs are added to the thinning areas. After just a few sessions a person with advanced balding can start to look like their hair is only thinning a little.
