Since hair loss can start at puberty and be ongoing throughout life, consideration upon analysis of the underlying causes will dictate the many kinds of treatments which can stabilize and reverse the progression. Therefore, a free consultation with one of The Hair Loss Recovery Program experienced physicians is necessary to provide the best combination of treatments available.
If your hair loss is stable and has already reached the end stage of progression, then Hair Transplantation Surgery would be a practical consideration. If your hair loss is still ongoing but has already reached a point of no return, then a combination of medication coupled with Hair Transplantation may be the best approach. The feedback from the patient and his or her expectations will help determine which or any approach is the right one.
If this category fits your description then The Hair Loss Recovery Program with its experienced doctors can develop a customized MEDICAL PLUS SURGICAL PROGRAM to deal with your particular condition.
Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that involves moving individual hair follicles from one part of the body (the donor site) to bald or balding parts (the recipient site). It is last therapy. It is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. In this case, grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding are transplanted to bald scalp. Likewise, it is also used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, and pubic hair and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants.
Since hair naturally grows in follicles that contain groupings of 1 to 4 hairs, today’s most advanced techniques transplant these naturally occurring 1–4 hair “follicular units” in their natural groupings. This modern hair transplantation can achieve a natural appearance by mimicking nature hair for hair. This hair transplant procedure is called Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). Donor hair can be harvested in two very different ways.
A strip of scalp is removed under local anesthesia, the wound is then sutured back together and this piece of scalp tissue is then cut in to small pieces of tissue called grafts which are then transplanted back in to the thinning area of the patient’s head. This method will leave a linear scar in the donor area, which should be covered by a patient’s hair (if long). The recovery period is around 2 weeks and the stitches will dissolve by themselves eliminating the need to return for suture removal. You do not need to shave your hair for this procedure.
Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE Harvesting
Individual follicles of hair are removed under local anesthesia with either a power or manual operation; this extraction uses tiny punches between 0.6mm and 1.25mm in diameter. Each follicle is then reinserted back in to the scalp in the thinning area using different gauge solid core needles to create the openings. Because individual follicles are removed, only small, punctate scars remain and any post-surgical pain is minimized. No sutures are required and recovery from FUE is within 7 days. You need to shave your hair.
