Understanding Hair Transplant:

Hair transplant is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed at restoring hair growth in areas of the scalp affected by hair loss or thinning. It involves the extraction of hair follicles from donor sites, typically the back or sides of the scalp, and transplanting them into the recipient areas where hair growth is desired. Hair transplant procedures offer a long-lasting solution for individuals experiencing male pattern baldness, female pattern hair loss, or other forms of alopecia.

Indications for Hair Transplant:

Hair transplant may be recommended for individuals who:

  • Experience progressive hair loss or thinning that affects their appearance and self-confidence.
  • Have sufficient donor hair on the scalp or body to transplant to the bald or thinning areas.
  • Desire a permanent and natural-looking solution for hair restoration.
  • Have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure and understand the limitations of hair transplant surgery.

The Surgical Procedure:

At Neo TrueNorth, hair transplant procedures are performed by our skilled cosmetic surgeons with a focus on achieving natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing results:

  • Consultation: Patients undergo a comprehensive consultation with our cosmetic surgeon to assess their hair loss pattern, discuss their goals, and determine their candidacy for hair transplant.
  • Anesthesia: Hair transplant surgery may be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the procedure and patient preference.
  • Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): In FUE, individual hair follicles are harvested from the donor area using a specialized punch tool or robotic device, leaving tiny, nearly invisible scars.
  • Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT): In FUT, a strip of scalp containing hair follicles is surgically removed from the donor area, and the follicular units are dissected and transplanted into the recipient sites.
  • Recipient Site Creation: Tiny incisions or recipient sites are created in the bald or thinning areas of the scalp, where the harvested follicles will be transplanted.
  • Hair Transplantation: The extracted follicles are meticulously transplanted into the recipient sites, following the natural hairline and pattern to achieve a natural-looking result.
  • Closure: Once the transplantation is complete, the incisions in the donor and recipient areas are closed with sutures or surgical staples.

Postoperative Care:

Following hair transplant surgery, patients receive comprehensive postoperative care instructions:

  • Scalp Care: Patients are instructed to keep the scalp clean and dry, avoiding excessive touching, scratching, or rubbing of the transplanted areas.
  • Medication: Antibiotics and pain medication may be prescribed to prevent infection and manage postoperative discomfort.
  • Activity Restrictions: Patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and exposure to direct sunlight for a certain period to facilitate healing and prevent complications.
  • Follow-Up: Regular follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor healing progress, assess hair growth, and address any concerns or complications.
