Hair loss isn’t exclusive to men; about 40% of those seeking help for hair loss are women. The team at Revive Wellness Center provide hair transplants for men and women. They use the innovative NeoGraft® transplant system to provide exceptional transplant results. Contact one of their offices in Torrance and Palm Springs, California, or schedule an appointment online if you’re ready to take the first steps toward a hair transplant.
Hair loss results from a combination of three factors: aging, hormone changes, and family history. Hair transplant — taking hair from one part of the scalp and transplanting it to a balding area — is the most common type of hair restoration surgery.
For men to be a good candidate for hair transplant surgery, you must have donor sites: permanent hair growing on the back and sides of your head. Male pattern baldness also means you have permanent hair follicles that will never fall out, wherever they’re placed.
Women who have thinning hair can have those areas thickened with follicles from other areas. Women can also have the eyebrows restored with hair transplants.
Your doctor at Revive Wellness Center will speak with you to be sure that your existing hair is sufficient for the operation.
How is transplant surgery performed?
After the patient is assessed and the transplant area(s) identified, our plastic surgeon outlines the area(s) that are going to receive the transplants. Local anesthetic is injected in all of the procedure areas. This ensures that the entire procedure is comfortable and pain free for the patient.
The technicians then extracts the individual hair follicles from the permanent hair growth areas utilizing our precision NeoGraft medical device. This technique eliminates the older hair transplanting methods of strip surgery, tissue expanders and the telltale 5-6” scar that remained with the older transplant techniques.
The technicians then implant each permanent hair follicle making sure the follicle angles ensure natural hair growth patterns. During the procedure our plastic surgeon prepares the patient’s own PRP (platelet rich plasma) and injected into the transplant areas to improve follicle engrafting and recovery.
There is no downtime with this procedure and patients usually return to work by the second or third day after their session. And, by that time, hair growth has begun to cover the extraction area. Patients should give themselves 4-6 months of lead-time before an important event, summer vacation or the Holidays so their new hair has time to grow and be styled for a natural result.
NeoGraft is an FDA cleared, automated hair-harvesting and implantation system. It removes individual hair follicles, then immediately transplants them to a balding area of the scalp. Its precision creates natural-looking hair growth by carefully distributing your existing hair.
The harvested hair follicles continue to grow after they’re transplanted, but it’s normal for the transplanted hair to fall out in about 2-3 weeks. After the hair sheds, the follicle starts a new growth cycle in 3-4 months, so you’ll see the hair grow in again.
This automated system lets you avoid the scalpels and stitches often used during traditional transplants. Plus, NeoGraft effectively transplants hair in both men and women.
