How To Speed Up Hair Growth After A Hair Transplant
A hair transplant is the only permanent way to restore youthful hair growth to an area affected by hair loss due to thinning or balding. When performed carefully and artistically, a hair transplant is a comfortable outpatient procedure that can yield a 100% natural-looking restoration of living and growing hair--restoring a hairline or coverage at the top of the scalp. A hair transplant involves the harvesting and redistribution of permanent hair follicles from the sides and the back of the scalp into the areas of hair loss using as little as a single hair follicle at a time. FUE, or follicular unit extraction, is the minimally-invasive method of hair follicle harvesting which leaves no linear scar in the back of the scalp. Hair transplantation can be a life-changing procedure for men and women detrimentally affected by hair loss because a fuller head of hair makes people look ...Read more
Why does hair transplant work? Is it not the location on the scalp that doesn't support hair growth?
Multiple factors: In actuality it is more the genetics of the donor site that will determine the fate of the hair but a multitude of other factors both local at the recipient sit as well as systemic influences will effect the survival and growth of the transplanted hair.See 3 more doctor answers
Maturity > Age.: There is no strict age cut off for hair transplant surgery. E.g., I've treated many children who have suffered scalp or brow scars or other injuries that needed repair via hair transplant surgery. However, hereditary hair loss patients must demonstrate enough maturity to understand the need for ongoing medical therapy to prevent the further progression of the condition in the nontransplanted hair.
Protect Your Hair!: Medical treatments like oral medications (finasteride, finplus, propecia), topical medications (minoxidil, rogaine, Formula 82M, bimatoprost, Latisse), laser therapy (LaserCap), PRP Platelet Rich Plasma w/ ECMs and other therapies can help stop the progression of hair loss. Seek an experienced, qualified, board-certified hair restoration physician to help evaluate, monitor and track your progress.
Have a consultation: There are excellent physicians that specialize in hair restoration and you should consult with one or several to determine the best treatment for your condition. In south florida, dr. Jeffrey epstein is a board certified ent/facial plastic who has dedicated his career to hair restoration. He also has an office in nyc and I highly recommend him.See 1 more doctor answer
Hair surgery itching: Itching after hair transplant surgery could mean healing or hair growth. In the first few days, you should use the Healing Mist supplied in your postop kit on the FUE donor and recipient areas, then proceed to the moisturizing ointment in the small glass jar as the scabs flake off at one week. At around 6 weeks post FUE NeoGraft, many of the hairs are growing, which could cause itching too.
Yes: Hair transplantation is a medical procedure where intact hair follicules are harvested from hair bearing areas on the scalp (donor site) and then the follicular units are replanted strategically into the bald areas. There are now many techniques available for hair transplantation, see a board certified plastic or dermatologic surgeon who specializes in this procedure to see if you are a candidate.See 2 more doctor answers
Hair Transplantation: As opposed to non-invasive hair regrowth treatments like 82m, prp, finplus &lasercap which protect &enhance hair growth from existing follicles, no-scar neograft fue hair transplantation moves permanent follicles into the severely depleted areas. Some patients need both non-invasive treatments as well as a hair transplant. An abhrs-certified doc can help you determine the best course of action.
Same Thing: Hair replacement and transplantation are really talking about the same thing. This procedure involves taking viable growing scalp hairs from the back of the scalp and splicing them out into individual hair units (1-5 hairs per unit) and transplanting or grafting them into the thin or bald area on the front and sides of the scalp. It is very effective. See someone for "micrograft transplants".See 2 more doctor answers
Hair transplant: Depends on the skill of the doctor. Usually donor strips or donor plugs are collapsed down interdigitating and sewn closed to minimize donor show. Otherwise let you hair grow long in the back to cover the area. Discuss your concern with the doctor who did your procedure
In medicine: a transfer from one body or body part to another of an organ (liver, heart, lung, kidney, pancreas bowel) or tissue (hand, face, hair). The immune system fights foreign invaders (like infections) so it will reject transplants from other people (allotransplants) because they look like infections. So transplants usually require drugs to ...Read more
