Hair Restoration Procedures
Conveniently located to serve Beverly Hills
“State of the art modern techniques such as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) to restore thinning hair and create facial hair.”
Hair loss is a common complaint for millions of men and women, but thanks to hair restoration in Beverly Hills, patients can experience effective solutions. Men can start losing hair as early as their 20’s and continue to lose hair into middle age. Women can also suffer from thinning hair with age. There are medical and surgical treatment of hair loss. First and foremost, a physician must determine the cause of the hair loss as there are several medical conditions that may lead to hair loss. Medical treatment with finasteride (Propecia™) or minoxidil (Rogaine™) can be prescribed either as a first step or as part of combined treatment with hair restoration procedures.
What Is Hair Restoration?
Hair restoration (also known as hair transplantation) is a procedure to transfer hair from areas of the scalp which do not lose hair (usually the back of the head) to areas of the scalp that are thinning or have lost hair completely. This procedure has evolved significantly since the old days of unnatural hairlines and obvious appearance of plugs. Our method of hair restoration produces a natural hairline and natural hair placement.
Ideal Candidates for Hair Restoration
Individuals ages 25 and older with pattern baldness are good candidates for hair restoration procedures. Patients who have hair loss due to scarring, injuries, and cosmetic surgeries may also be recommended for this treatment. It is important to have thick hair in the donor areas to achieve the desired results.
If you have unstable or temporary hair loss, you may not be recommended for transplantation. If you have existing kidney, heart, or blood-related illnesses, you may not be an ideal candidate. Patients diagnosed with alopecia areata are not compatible for hair transplant surgery.
A physical examination of your hair and scalp will be performed during your initial consultation. Your hair growth and density will be assessed. Your medical history will be reviewed, including any pre-existing conditions and your current medications. You will be informed about the possible techniques that can be used to achieve optimal results.
Hair Restoration Procedures
There are two ways to obtain hairs from the back of the scalp (“donor hairs”): strip technique and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). The strip technique has the advantage of producing excellent grafts but the disadvantage of leaving a scar, which is usually hidden and can only be seen if the patient wears the hair short. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) does not leave a linear scar and thus is a good fit for patients with short hair. However, it is more time and labor-intensive. The procedure is done under local anesthesia.
The hairs are separated and prepared for implantation. Areas to be implanted are prepared with local anesthesia. Hair can be transplanted to the head but also to the face to add facial hair/beard/mustache and eyebrows. Our expertise allows us to create natural appearing and permanent facial and brow hair.
What to Expect After Your Hair Restoration Procedure
Recovery after hair restoration treatment can take up to several weeks depending on your body’s natural healing process. You may be able to go back to work after several days. Pain, itchiness, numbness, and tenderness are commonly experienced during the healing period. Over-the-counter medications may be sufficient to control discomfort.
It will take some time to see the full results of your hair restoration procedure in Beverly Hills. There will be a period of shedding and then over the course of the next year, you should see some hair growth begin to occur. Our team will provide you with post-operative instructions to help you through the process.
