Hair Transplant is the only permanent method of hair restoration in which one’s own hair from the back and sides of the head are extracted and implanted on front in the bald area.
Yes! Hair transplant surgery redistributes existing, healthy hair, which is usually genetically encoded to virtually last a lifetime. Conventional hair transplant growth rates are at about 90-95%.
Your transplant will be fully grown approximately 9 months after your All Follicular Mega session.
For the vast majority of patients, virtually all transplanted hair lasts a lifetime. In some cases, a small percentage of transplanted hair may be lost as the patient ages.
Infection occurrences after a hair transplant procedure are rare. In the few cases where infection does occur, it is often due to the patient’s failure to fully follow post-operative instructions. Even when infection occurs, it generally is easily treatable with antibiotics, which can be prescribed by the physician.
This depends on which technique you choose. Certain techniques proffer better outcomes than others. In the case of hairline design, this is true namely due to the source of donor hair. For soft, natural-looking hairline design, we would recommend Direct implant method.
If you have a completely bald area, it may take two to three surgeries to cover your entire head. If you have an area partially covered with hair, it may take only one surgery to fill in the area. Our goal is to restore about twenty-five percent of the donor’s original density in each surgery. After two surgeries, the density is at about fifty percent which is often adequate coverage to satisfy the patient. The time between each session is usually three to four months in order to see how the hair is growing out and to provide more equal distribution.
Hair transplant procedures that exclusively use follicular units leave no visible scarring in the recipient area.
Most patients watch a movie or take a nap while we work. Afterwards, they tell us that during the procedure they felt no pain. Any discomfort they feel afterwards is usually very temporary and nearly always minimal. Approximately 25% of patients elect to take pain relieving pills during the following 1-2 days.
Little or no time off from work is required.
Hair roots are very tough and can tolerate surgery or any irritation.
DIABETES: We have performed many hundreds of successful hair transplant procedures for patients with diabetes. However, to determine possible candidacy for hair restoration, you will first need to have a consultation with one of our physicians.
Cardiac PROBLEM: We don’t normally recommend Hair implantation to Candidates with Cardiac Problem.
Maintain an adequate length of hair on the back of your head. This should be at least one inch long, or you may have a problem covering up the sutures after the surgery. Your donor grafts will be removed from here and you should expect coverage following your procedure.
Two weeks before surgery :
- NO ROGAINE®
- NO ASPIRIN (acetylsalicylic acid – A.S.A.) or anti-inflammatory medications containing Aspirin. Note: these medications are included in many over-the counter medications.
- NO VITAMIN E tablets.
Day before surgery :
- NO ALCOHOL
- Make arrangements for someone to take you to and from the clinic.
Operating day :
- Wash your hair in the morning using your regular shampoo .
- Wear a button- down shirt and comfortable, easily laundered pants. You should also bring an adjustable baseball cap or scarf along with you.
- No tight sweaters or pullovers.
- No tight hats or caps.
- Do not wear anything that will have to be pulled tightly over your head.
- Eat a light meal just before coming to the clinic.
Yes we do. The procedure is same as for men.
Eyebrow restoration is not makeup or tattooing. In eyebrow transplantation, the hairs above the ears or from the back of the head are transplanted to the brow area for a very natural looking restoration. If you have lost hair permanently from over-plucking, scarring, a skin condition, aging, or if you simply were not born with complete eyebrows, you could be a candidate for this procedure. Eyebrow restoration is suitable for and popular with both men and women.

Platelet Rich Plasma Injections are used to stimulate healing using one’s own blood components. The physician will withdraw your blood, put the blood into a centrifuge where the platelets are extracted (platelets are now known to release healing proteins known as growth factors) and then inject that solution directly into the injured site using an ultrasound guided technique to ensure proper placement. These proteins then stimulate repair and regeneration at the site, offering the patient pain relief and quicker healing rates. In most cases, 1-3 injections are required.
PRP Injections can treat a number of conditions for the hip, knee, arm, shoulder, lower leg and feet. It is best to consult with your physician for a complete listing. However, below is an abbreviated list of conditions that can be treated with PRP.
- Acute muscle tears and strains
- Chronic Tendinopathies (tennis elbow, Achilles tendon, patellar tendon and rotator cuff)
- Ligament injuries (ie: medial or lateral collateral ligament—MCL/LCL)
Patients usually tolerate the injection well. However, there can be soreness after the injection due to the PRP-induced inflammatory response. You can expect swelling and soreness during the first 48 hours post injection and are given pain medication to help alleviate the discomfort.
Most patients see some improvement within 2-6 weeks. The pain becomes less and less as the weeks pass with most clinical trials reporting improvement up to 6-9 months post injection.
Platelet injections are safe. Since you are using your body’s own blood components and there are no foreign substances being injected into your body, the injections are considered safe.
However there is some minimal risk involved. During research studies and clinical trials, the only risk noted was that the injection could cause an infection to develop. This is not unique to platelet injections, anytime a person undergoes an injection there is this risk. But because there are no foreign bodies being injected and there is no concern of disease transmission, this therapy is considered to be safe.
Using one’s own body as a healing mechanism is a relatively new concept in the world of medicine, and an exciting one at that. As therapies such as these begin to prove they are beneficial and effective, you will likely see similar therapies develop in other medical areas.
Patients with severe anemia, low platelet count, abnormal platelet function, active systemic infection or those with an active cancer are not recommended to be administered PRP.
Blood is drawn from the patient and put into a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma.
The platelet-rich plasma is then transferred into a syringe to be injected into the injured area. Often times an ultrasound machine is used to guide the needle directly to the injured tissue.
Platelets’ main function is clotting blood, but platelets also contain numerous molecules that act as “growth factors” – these molecules are essential for healing.
It is equally effective in both men and women.
PRP therapy can be repeated every 1-2 months and usually 3-4 sittings are sufficient, though some patients may require maintenance therapy once a year or more frequently depending upon the severity of hair loss. The visible results in form of new hair growth can be seen after 3-4 months of treatment and further improvement is noticed in the subsequent months.iniaturized hair.
The number of procedures necessary to achieve a personally desired goal varies from person to person and the individual degree of hair loss.

Although patients are administered local anesthetics and other medications, the degree of pain or discomfort experienced during or after the procedure varies according to the patient. We may supply patients with medication to use after the procedure, if needed. Many of our patients find that they do not need to take any medication at all after their hair transplant procedure.
Basically, the transplanted hair is the hair from the back of the head. Even though it is transplanted, it will still have the same life span. Normally, a hair follicle sheds every three to six years and then grows back from the same root. The transplanted hair continues the same life circle.
For the first twenty- four hours, there will be a strip of bandage around the head. After that, you will be able to remove the bandage and shampoo your hair as usual. If you have the surgery done on the hairline, the small scabs will remain for seven to ten days.
Usually it takes three to four months for the hair to grow out. After that it will grow about half an inch per month which is the same rate as the donor hair. Initial hair quality is usually very thin, like baby hair. Then, it becomes coarser over time. Sometimes the initial hair is curlier, then it straightens in about one year. The color of the initial hair may also be darker and later will be lightened by the sun.
No. It is minor surface surgery, literally only skin deep, and one of the safest surgical procedures ever performed. You are under the care of qualified medical staff at all times. Your transplant takes place (using equipment kept to hospital standards) in a private office.
