Hair Restoration

To sufferers, hair loss is a serious condition that can deeply affect self-image. The loss or thinning of hair can be the result of a variety of factors.

Recent research suggests that faulty hair-making progenitor cells in the scalp may trigger male pattern baldness. Hair loss can also occur due to hormonal imbalances, stress, illness, heredity, rapid weight loss, nutritional deficiencies, chemotherapy, or the side effects of some medications. Hair thinning or loss can affect people of any age or sex but is often an issue for most people as they grow older.

Hair restoration involves the surgical treatment of hair loss. Non-surgical alternatives include oral medications and topical treatments, which are effective for hair loss prevention, but offer a more limited solution than surgery.

Hair replacement surgery, now called Follicular Unit Transplantation, has made tremendous progress since its introduction more than half a century ago. FUT is the most advanced method of grafting. It is the only permanent hair restoration technique, implanting very small groups of existing healthy hair in a thinning or balding area.

FUT is also known as hair follicle harvesting, surgical hair restoration, hair transplantation, or hair restoration/replacement surgery.

    Hi,

    If I am going through a stressed period of losing my job and moving to a new country with uncertainity, do you recommend I do the FUE now or postpone untill I pass throught this. Does stress impact the results of the implantation.

      Hi Tagan,
      Thanks for your question! Yes, in many cases hair can be transplated directly into the area of the scar to camouflage its appearance. In this situation, one of the concerns that comes up is blood supply. Scar tissue tends to have a lower blood supply than non-scar tissue, which has the potential to affect the success of the hair transplantation. We encourage you to consult with a hair transplant surgeon to discuss the specifics of your scar and whether a hair transplant may be possible.
