Restore Thickness with Hair Restoration and Transplant Surgery
Hair loss can be a great source of embarrassment for many individuals. Hair loss does not just alter one’s appearance, but it often makes them appear to be years older than their actual age. It is important to note that hair loss is not just a concern for men, but women as well. Many people, both male and female, have a redisposition to thinning hair. When people begin to see their hair line recede or thin, they are often eager to find a solution. Dr. Amir Moradi offers patients that solution in the form of hair restoration at his San Diego cosmetic surgery practice.
With hair transplant surgery, Dr. Moradi can restore a patient’s natural hair line and volume using his or her own hair follicles. Those who would like to learn more about treatment options for hair restoration, replacement, and transplant should contact Moradi MD at their earliest convenience.
What Causes Hair Loss?
Hair loss affects a great number of people, but not everybody. Perhaps not surprisingly, many wonder why this is. Why are some individuals more predisposed to hair loss than others? The truth is that there are many potential causes of hair loss, and sometimes it may not be possible to pin down exactly why a patient has experienced hair loss. However, there are several factors that are known to lead to a thinning hairline, including the following:
- Hormonal changes
- Medical conditions
- The use of certain medications
- Stress or anxiety
- Habits (such as hair pulling)
Despite what the cause of hair loss may be, the good news for patients is that there are treatment options to explore. With hair restoration, patients can restore lost volume and regain a sense of confidence.
NeoGraft® Hair Transplant
NeoGraft® is an automated, minimally invasive system that is used by Dr. Moradi and his team when performing follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant surgery. The NeoGraft® technology allows Dr. Moradi to harvest individual follicular units (each containing three to four hair follicles) with greater accuracy and speed. These grafts are then implanted to the recipient area where they will heal and, eventually, grow new hair.
This procedure offers many benefits over traditional hair transplant methods, including smaller incisions, the ability to be more precise and artistic with graft placement, and a shorter recovery period for the patient. The NeoGraft® hair transplant procedure is a gentle method that takes advantage of the latest hair restoration technology to provide patients with superior results. For these reasons and more, Dr. Moradi is proud to offer NeoGraft® hair restoration at his San Diego practice.
PRP and ACell Hair Restoration
PRP and ACell hair restoration is another treatment option offered by Moradi MD to aid patients suffering from hair loss. However, unlike hair transplant surgery, this procedure does not involve follicular extraction or insertion. To understand how this procedure works, a basic understanding of the terms PRP and ACell is necessary.
- PRP: An acronym for platelet rich plasma, a concentration that is derived from the patient’s own blood.
- ACell: A naturally occurring matrix of proteins that can be found in layers of the patient’s tissues.
Taking a sample of blood from the patient, PRP can be collected and then mixed with an ACell serum. This mixture is then injected into the patient’s scalp while the patient is numbed with a local anesthetic. These protein rich injections have been shown to stimulate shrinking hair follicles and regenerate dormant follicular tissue, both of which should result in new hair growth within about four to eight months after treatment. PRP and ACell hair restoration can be particularly beneficial as an early intervention against hair loss or as a complement to hair transplant surgery.
Costs of Hair Restoration
While hair loss is a problem shared by many, it is highly unlikely that different patients will experience hair loss in the exact same way. As a result, hair loss treatment is personalized to the specific needs of each patient. Because of this, it really is not possible to give an estimate for hair restoration or hair transplant costs without a personalized complimentary consultation.
However, Dr. Moradi does offer a variety of treatment programs that are meant to provide patients with effective hair restoration results while remaining affordable.
