Hair Transplant Questions & Answers

Are you a candidate for hair transplant DFW hair restoration Nu Hair Dallas


Dallas Texas renowned hair restoration specialist has this suggestion, "Hair transplant procedure is a surgical hair restoration and requires expert surgeons with vast experience." The hair restoration surgery should be customized based on hair type, general health, age, the degree of hair loss and overall patient expectations. "Find a doctor that can create the most natural appearing results that are undetectable to even the keenest eye," said Marvin Friedman, Nu Hair of DFW Texas, hair restoration specialist in Dallas

Q: I am just starting to thin, when should l have my first hair transplant?

A: It is best to wait until at least twenty-five before considering hair transplant surgery. It is best to wait until you have significant hair loss that is a cosmetic problem. A hair transplant is not a hair loss prevention treatment.  Some hair loss in the temples is reasonable for a person in their mid- to late 20's as this represents the progression to a mature adult hairline.

Q: Can I get my youthful hair density back with a hair transplant?

A: Hair transplant only “moves” (transplanted) rather than creates new hair. A limited amount of hair from the donor area is transplanted to a larger space in the front and top of the scalp. To achieve around 1/3 to ½ of the original hair density in the front part of the scalp, it takes at least two or more sessions.
Q: Will hair transplant surgery shock my health hair which will result in the loss of my existing healthy hair?

A: In general, only that has begun to decrease in diameter and is weak already is shed after a hair transplant. Healthy hair is unlikely to fall off, but it does, the hair should grow back.

Q: Can hair transplant surgery be performed into scar tissue?

A: Yes, a hair transplant can be done into a scar area, and the hair will grow. The scar tissue is not as elastic as healthy tissue, so that area should not be transplanted as densely. Grafts do not grow well in thickened scars.

Q: Should I have a haircut before my hair transplant day?

A: For the hair transplant surgeon it is easier to work with shorter cut hair in the area to be transplanted. A skilled surgeon can operate with short or long hair. The advantage of having a short haircut is that one has better visibility and therefore the procedure moves along faster. When the amount of the grafts is more significant and hair length is long, it may slow down the process. A short close haircut may not hide the procedure for the duration of healing. Please note that a shaved head makes performing the hair transplant more difficult. In a close or short haircut, the distribution, and angle of the original hair is easy to discern, and this allows the new grafts to be placed in a direction that follows the existing hair and in a distribution that complements that hair.

Q: Are cosmetic products harmful to a newly transplanted hair? Dallas, TX 

A: Cosmetic products may make it difficult to keep a newly transplanted area clean right after hair transplant surgery. These products can be safely used to reduce any redness or make the area appear fuller after a week following hair transplant procedure; the scalp can be gently washed out without disturbing the newly transplanted grafts.

Q: Does very close insertion of grafts possible?

A: In a hair transplant, very close insertion of hair graft called dense packing has a risk. It could damage to the scalp and grafts might pop. Very tightly spaced grafts expose the grafts to lack of oxygen and trauma if re-insertion is needed. Only skilled hair transplant surgeon should determine if dense packing could be done.

Q: If I have several hair transplants sessions will I have multiple scars in the donor area?

A: It is possible to use the same scar area.

Q: Is it feasible to have a hair transplant that is entirely undetectable immediately following surgery?

A: It is possible only if your existing hair can cover the transplanted area. Wounds are small but will be detectable for the first week. There may be some swelling and some crusting and some residual redness.

Q: Can hair be transplanted using someone else hair?

A: A hair transplant between individuals can only be performed on identical twins, with the same genetics. Otherwise, the transplanted hair will be rejected.
