Q & A: About Hair Transplantation
When confronted with thinning hair or baldness, many men and women consider hair transplantation, which is a permanent form of hair replacement.
Anyone who has suffered permanent hair loss may be a candidate for hair transplantation. People who may benefit from hair transplants include:
- Men with male pattern baldness
- Women with female pattern baldness
- Men and women who have lost some hair as a result of burns or other scarring injuries to the scalp, including those with permanent damage due to traction.
What Is the Success Rate of Transplants?
Measured in terms of graft survival, hair transplants, when performed correctly by experienced and dedicated physicians, are virtually 100% successful.
Am I a Good Candidate For a Hair Transplant?
The factors in determining your success rate are the availability of quality donor area and your general health. Most men experiencing male pattern baldness, or those suffering damage from an accident, make excellent candidates. Even those experiencing severe hair loss can benefit from hair transplantation. Women are finding transplants an excellent way to improve their appearance.
Will My Hair Transplant Be Natural Looking?
Since its inception during the 1950’s, great advances have been made in the techniques of hair transplant surgery so that transplants performed today are reasonably undetectable under normal daily circumstances.
Is Age a Factor In Getting a Hair Transplant?
Age plays no role in hair transplant surgery. Hair transplantation procedures have been performed on men in their 60’s and 70’s. Careful attention should be given when evaluating young candidates who are experiencing male pattern baldness because some physicians believe it is senseless to transplant hair pre-programmed to fall out. Experienced physicians can usually predict hair loss patterns.
Will My Transplanted Hair Need Any Special Treatment?
Once the surgery is complete, your newly transplanted hair requires no special treatment.
This hair continues to live and grow naturally and requires the same general care as your non-transplanted hair. Once fully grown, you can cut, style, or color this hair as you wish.
Are Hair Transplants Expensive?
The cost of hair transplantation will vary depending on the size of the bald area, the number of grafts required, and the procedures employed to meet your expectations and desired results.
When you consider that the cost is amortized over your lifetime, hair transplantation is cost effective. Once complete, there are no hidden expenses or ongoing maintenance costs. All fees will be discussed during your initial consultation.
