Hair Transplants For Men
The most effective hair loss treatment for men is a hair transplant. Male hair restoration surgery can provide men with the hairline they desire, with surgery being the best way to truly “re-grow” hair. Many men turn to hair transplants after trying other hair growth products that are unsuccessful and are pleased to find out that today’s hair restoration techniques are a far cry from the undesirable-looking hair plugs of yesterday. In fact, even the best hair growth products on the market can’t replicate the results achieved through a hair transplant.
Hair transplants for men are the most common type of hair restoration procedure performed by Dr. Lam. In addition to his state-of-the-art and technically-skilled approach to male hair restoration, Dr. Lam provides an unmatched level of artistry, as well as a thorough understanding of what it takes to provide the most natural-looking male hairline, customized for each individual patient.
Male Hair Transplant Procedure
The only way for men to truly experience dramatic hair re-growth is by undergoing a hair transplant procedure. Hair replacement by way of hair transplant surgery allows for healthy hair follicles to be harvested from areas in the lower back section of the scalp where they are then implanted in areas experiencing hair loss. Once implanted, these hair follicles then grow in the same way as natural hair, since they are the patient’s natural hair. Hair implants look natural and blend in with the recipient’s surrounding hair, although it takes an experienced hair transplant surgeon with artistic vision and exceptional technical skill to create the most natural-looking hairline, hair growth patterns, and hair density.
When a hair transplant is properly performed, approximately 95% of hair grafts are typically maintained and transplanted hair should remain in place permanently. It takes approximately 4 – 6 months for transplanted hair to start growing, although the full effect of any hair transplant procedure is generally not realized for 12 – 18 months following the procedure.
Dr. Lam’s Hair Transplant Technique
For Men All hair transplants for men are not created equal. What sets apart the male hair restoration techniques offered by Dr. Lam from others offering similar types of surgery is his technique and his dedication to matching superior technical skill with exceptional artistry. Additionally, Dr. Lam fully understands natural patterns of hair loss in men, a key element in designing a hairline that naturally fits each patient’s age, gender, ethnicity, facial features, head shape and the stage of hair loss experienced. This creates the most effective two-dimensional and three-dimensional results, and provides hair restoration results that will age well over time.
Hair transplant surgery for men may differ in how hair follicles are extracted from the donor site. In addition to traditional strip or linear harvesting, Dr. Lam offers follicular unit extraction, a method in which individual hair follicles are independently extracted from the donor area using robotic technology. No matter what type of donor harvesting procedure is utilized, Dr. Lam and his team seek to minimize discomfort and maximize harvest yield while protecting nerves and blood supply to promote better healing . Harvested grafts are always meticulously prepared for implantation by Dr. Lam’s experienced team and are expertly placed to achieve perfect angles, direction, pattern and graft-to-site fit.
One of the keys to Dr. Lam’s exceptional male hair transplant results is not only his technique, but the fact that he is involved in every step of the process and does not hand-off or outsource any part of the procedure to a rotating team, as is often done in other hair restoration practices. Additionally, Dr. Lam performs all hair transplant surgeries at his fully-accredited surgical center, allowing for effective sedation to be administered so patients experience no discomfort during the procedure.
Male Hair Transplant Cost
One of the questions you may be asking yourself is “how much does a hair transplant cost?” If so, you are not alone! Many men considering hair restoration are concerned about hair transplant costs. Although the cost of a hair transplant is more significant than other types of hair loss products, it is a permanent solution that provides dramatic and successful results. Hair restoration cost varies from patient to patient, depending on the number of grafts required, as well as a series of other factors. It is not accurate to simply discuss what a hair transplant costs in terms of cost-per-graft. Dr. Lam provides free hair transplant consultations to evaluate your hair transplant needs and to determine whether you are good candidate for hair restoration surgery. Hair transplant cost will be discussed in detail during this consultation.
Causes of Hair Loss In Men
One of the most common reasons that men undergo hair restoration procedures is to combat the effect of male pattern baldness. Thinning hair in men, a receding hairline and areas of complete baldness can be improved through hair transplantation. Before male hair transplant surgery is undertaken, however, the nature and evolution of a patient’s particular male pattern baldness should be fully grasped by both surgeon and patient alike in order to create the most successful outcome and to allow the transplant to age naturally. There is no male pattern baldness cure, and although there are many hair loss solutions on the market, including a number of hair products that claim to help re-grow hair you have lost, the best hair loss treatment, and the most permanent, is hair transplant surgery.
Other causes of hair loss in men may include alopecia areata, anagen hair loss, cicatricial alopecias, disorders of hair growth, inflammatory scalp, telogen effluvium, tinea capitis, traction alopecia and trichotillomania. Depending on their nature and stage of progression, some of these scalp conditions can only be treated with medicine while others allow for surgical treatment. Dr. Lam is trained to make the judgment and thereby ensures safe and successful treatment.
Recovery Following Male Hair Transplants
Recovering after male hair transplant surgery is dependent in part on how the donor hair is harvested, whether by strip harvesting or follicular unit extraction. If linear harvesting is used, you may experience a bit more discomfort following surgery, but it generally takes less than 24 hours to recover from hair transplant surgery. By the day after your surgery, you should be able to resume most daily activities, although it is recommended that you hold off on strenuous activities for a week to prevent any accidental injury and reduce the risk of bleeding. You can return to work on the day following surgery, although many people choose to take a few days off following the procedure. Otherwise, you can expect to have some tiny scabbing in the transplanted area for up to a week, will have no bandages, and can wash your hair on the day following surgery. You can wear a hat or cap immediately after surgery if you wish to conceal any scabs.
Hair Transplant Results In Men
Although results will vary from patient to patient, based on the type of hair loss experienced, the patient’s hair quality, hairstyle, and the desired outcome, the key to a successful hair transplant for men is creating a hairline that seamlessly matches the natural hairline that would exist if hair loss had not occurred. By fully understanding the evolution of male pattern hair loss, Dr. Lam is able to create hair restoration results in men that appear natural to observers from any range and angle.
