If You’re Considering Hair Replacement…
Hair loss is primarily caused by a combination of aging, a change in hormones, and a family history of baldness. As a rule, the earlier hair loss begins, the more severe the baldness will become. Hair loss can also be caused by burns or trauma, in which case hair replacement is considered a reconstructive treatment.
If you and your doctor have determined that hair transplants are the best option for you, you can feel comfortable knowing that board-certified plastic surgeons have been successfully performing this type of procedure for more than thirty years.
If you’re considering hair replacement, we will give you a basic understanding of the variety of procedures involved. It can’t answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on your individual circumstances. You can ask if there is anything you don’t understand about the procedure you plan to have.
Non-surgical hair replacement procedures attach a thin transparent layer of polyurethane to the scalp, forming a tight membrane which acts as ‘a second layer of skin’. The hair replacement membrane will have previously been implanted with human hair, customised to create a near as possible match with the patients existing hair characteristics. These detailed design specifications include a site specific colour match, density selection, direction of implant, hair wave, as well as crown and parting breaks amongst other features.
