Managing Expectations After Your Hair Restoration Surgery

Managing expectations after your hair restoration surgery requires a sound fact-finding mission to best understand specific post surgical measures to anticipate to ensure a successful outcome.

About Your New Hairline

Restoration of your hairline is something that both you and your physician hair restoration specialist will want to "get right". The best hairline recreated by transplantation or other hair restoration surgery is one that blends with your other facial features and does not call attention to itself as a unique facial feature.

Scalp Reduction Surgery for Hair Restoration

Alopecia reduction-also called scalp reduction-is a surgical hair restoration procedure that (1) surgically removes bald scalp, and (2) stretches hair-bearing scalp upward to replace bald scalp that has been removed.

Revising Previous Hair Transplants

Life situations can change and a hair transplant needs to be revised to meet the patient’s present and future needs. Revising hair restoration surgery must be approached cautiously, however, with appropriate examinations and patient-physician consultations.

Follicular Unit Transplantation & Extraction

Follicular unit (FU) extraction is a procedure for obtaining follicular graft units from donor areas on the scalp. Follicular unit transplantation is the surgical procedure for transplanting follicular unit into the scalp.

Tissue Engineering (Hair Follicle Cloning)

The mechanism where a single hair follicle could be turned into hundreds or thousands of hair follicles is not ‘cloning’ but tissue engineering or what is sometimes called cell therapy.

Hair Surgery Expectations

Make sure you and your surgeon are on the same page to determine if the surgery or medical approach can deliver on your expectations.
