Hair Transplant Surgery is a Permenant Hair Restoration Solution
As men and woman grow and mature, some are more prone than others to have their hair fall out, while others resist the effect of male hormones, and keep their hair usually for their entire life.
Hair that is genetically programmed not to fall out is usually located in an area horseshoe in the back of the head. Hair transplantation is the simple in-office procedure of removing these follicles from the donor area and inserting this hair into the balding areas on the top and front of the head. Hair from the donor area will generally is grow for the rest of one’s life. Hair transplantation is really the only natural permanent solution to restore a hairline.
A full evaluation and consultation with a Boriscosmetic hair transplant expert is necessary to determine the best solution for you. Upon patient evaluation, the physician must determine the reason of the patient’s hair loss. Having ruled out thyroid abnormalities, polycystic ovarian syndrome, or iron-deficiency anemia, and other types of hair loss should a surgical approach to hair loss be considered. During the preliminary in office visit the doctor will review the patient’s list of medications to rule out any that may adversely interact with anesthesia administered during the procedure, it is important that various medications that may affect bleeding time be discontinued such as aspirin be discontinued 10 days prior to a session. Anti-inflammatory drug use should also be halted.
Hair transplantation procedures are used to treat various forms of permanent alopecia in both men and women. Intact hair follicles are harvested from the safe donor area of a patient’s scalp by either strip method or follicular unit extraction. Each method has advantages and disadvantages. Advancements in follicular transplanting over the last decade has led to improved hair survival and natural-appearing results.
Both men and women may be good candidates for hair restoration procedure as long as their donor area is able to yield a sufficient number of hair follicles.
On the day of the surgery you will receive local anesthetic, and your physician will remove the donor hair from the back or sides of your head. The donor area is then sutured, leaving a thin linear scar that is easily concealed by the remaining hair.
Individual follicular units are removed, and no further stitches are needed. Our skilled surgical staff divides the donor strip into its follicular groupings, or units, each containing one, two, or three hairs. Tiny incisions are made for each graft. Great detailed attention is made to the location, depth and angle. This ensures a completely natural-looking hair transplant.
