Losing some hair is normal, but you may be balding when you start losing large chunks of hair or start noticing patches on your scalp. There is no need for alarm because hair loss is not a life sentence. Your Lakewood Ranch support & consultation staff at Honest Hair Restoration can help restore your hairline using various hair restoration procedures.
What is a hair transplant?
Hair transplant refers to the surgical procedure that involves the removal of healthy hair follicles from a donor site to bald or an area with thinning air. Dr. Maag and his professional team at Honest Hair Restoration uses NeoGraft advanced technology to ensure that you have the right amount of hair on your head. The unit offers propriety ProGrowth Combination FUE to restore your soft and shiny hair while giving you a natural hairline. Dr. Maag also offers hair transplants to enhance your sideburns, eyebrows, mustache, or beard. Dr. Maag does a physical exam and reviews your family and medical history to determine if you’re eligible for a hair transplant. He may also discuss your hair goals before recommending the most effective procedure for you. The team can also prescribe medications to strengthen your hair or improve hair growth on the balding patches.
What should you expect during a hair transplant?
During the procedure, your provider follows the following steps:
- Donor hair removal
This step involves harvesting healthy hair follicles from a specific part of your scalp. Dr. Maag meticulously chooses the hardiest and healthiest follicles to prevent future hair loss on the treatment site. These hairs rarely fall out and are resistant to DHT.
- Follicular unit extraction (FUE)
FUE is a highly intricate procedure that involves the removal of hair follicles in units, categorizing them according to diameter and length instead of removing entire strips of hair. This grouping prevents the occurrence of a Linear Scar. Dr. Maag has years of experience in hair transplanting, and most of his patients leave the facility satisfied with the results.
- Recipient site creation
After Joel Torres, the Grafting Specialist harvests the hair follicles, Dr. Maag uses NeoGraft technology to prepare the balding or areas with thinning hair. Before the procedure, the team gives you anesthesia to prevent any discomfort. Your hair restoration design depends on your hairline and your hair goals.
- Hair graft placement
The next step involves transferring the grafts to the treatment site. Dr. Maag first places the grafts in a cooled, medically-based solution to ensure they are healthy and ready for placement. He then artistically places the grafts on the balding site to promote the growth of soft, natural-looking hair. The team may recommend PRP injections that stimulate hair regrowth for more dramatic results.
