General Hair Transplant FAQ's

What Causes Hair Loss?
The most common cause of hair loss is inheritance. Men and women inherit the gene for hair loss from either or both parents. Men are most commonly affected by the inherited gene as the hormone, testosterone, activates the genetic program causing loss of hair follicles.

Currently there is no known method of stopping this type of hair loss. The age of onset, extent, and rate of hair loss vary from person to person. Severe illness, malnutrition, or vitamin deficiency can accelerate this process. When applied incorrectly, permanent hair color and chemical relaxers damage the hair and follicle to the extent that hair loss can be permanent.

Causes of hair loss do not include wearing a hat, excessive shampooing, lack of blood flow, or clogged pores.

What is Different About Hair Transplants Now vs. the Past?
While hair transplantation has been a well-accepted procedure for decades, scientific and technical advances have helped hair restoration surgeons create a new era of consistent, safe, effective, and-most importantly, natural-looking results.

The obvious-looking 'plug-type' transplants of the past have been replaced with living and growing results that truly defy detection. Microsurgical techniques and instrumentation, and artistic appreciation of how hair naturally grows, has led to these advances.

The identification of naturally-occurring follicular-units (groups of mostly one, two or three follicles) in the skin, and the ability to successfully transplant literally thousands of these groupings during large sessions of transplantation, allows for the restoration of hair in the vast majority of men and women who suffer from hereditary hair loss.

Does a Hair Transplant Really Work?
Yes. The transplanted hair is removed from one area of the body (donor site) and transferred to another (recipient site). The transferred tissue is not "rejected" as it is not foreign tissue. The transplanted hair maintains it's own characteristics; color, texture, growth rate, and curl, after transplantation and regrowth.

The vitality of the grafted follicle is maintained by the rich blood supply to the scalp. Originally, large circular grafts containing 15-20 hairs were transplanted resulting in noticeable and unnatural results. Over years, instruments and techniques have been developed that allow us to achieve truly natural results by transplanting small grafts very close together.

We have found that hair grows from the scalp in groups of one, two, and three hair follicles. We transfer these groups of follicles after eliminating the excess surrounding fatty tissue. This allows the grafts to be placed closer together resulting in a denser and more natural result.

Is Hair Transplantation Painful?
Most people are surprised at how little pain there is during the procedure. Some discomfort is to be expected as the anesthetic is injected into the scalp. Once the skin is anesthetized, there is no pain. If the numbing medicine wears off during the course of the procedure, more is injected to re-anesthatize the area.

What Will it Look Like After the Procedure?
The grafts form small scabs in the days after the procedure. If one has enough surrounding hair, these scabs can be camouflaged with creative styling. If not, the small scabs may be visible but do not attract much attention. By keeping the scalp moist, the scabs usually come off in about a week or so.
