Male Hair Transplant Raleigh, North Carolina
Hair transplantation surgery is among the most popular cosmetic surgery for men. Due to genetic and hormonal factors, people with elevated levels of testosterone, are more likely to see significant hair loss and thinning. Hair thinning is a natural part of aging, but for men, it can occur as early as their twenties. This can cause stress and make men look older than they are. The Jindal Institute for Youthful Aging performs several hair restoration procedures to help men keep their hair longer. One such procedure is male hair transplant surgery in Raleigh, NC.
What Is A Male Hair Transplant?
A hair transplant for men is a non-invasive surgery. It harvests hormone-resistant hair from donor areas on the back and sides of the head. Each unit extracted contains between one and three hairs. This technique is known as follicular unit extraction (FUE). FUE is now the standard for hair transplant surgeries. This is because patients do not need to be put under general anesthesia, and there is little recovery or downtime required.
Previous forms of hair restoration surgery Raleigh involved linear, large incisions or looked unnatural. FUE hair transplant offers men a procedure that is low risk. It has little or no scarring and tends to see good results.
Causes Of Hair Loss In Men
Male pattern baldness is the most common cause of male hair loss. It is caused by a combination of genetic predisposition and hormones. Testosterone can damage hair follicles and lead to hair falling out. Not all men will experience this. However, those that do may notice a receding hairline and balding along the crown of the head. This hair loss—in extreme cases—can start as early as high school.
All men will likely experience some level of hair thinning. However, those who are good candidates for male hair transplants may have a family history of hair loss. Other causes of hair loss such as medications, medical conditions, and injuries are less likely to need or benefit from a hair transplant. Though, these situations can sometimes be helped with non-surgical hair restoration.
The Male Hair Transplant Process in Raleigh, NC
On the day of surgery, Dr. Jindal and his team will start by numbing the scalp. This includes numbing the donor sites and areas of implantation. From there, they may need to subtly shave the donor area to determine your hair density and have better visibility when removing individual hair follicles.
First, Dr. Jindal will gently begin removing follicular units from the donor area using a state-of-the-art automated device called Neograft, or an artificial-intelligence robot called the Artas. Since each unit is harvested individually, this will take a significant amount of time. The hair of your donor site will continue to grow and the procedure should not be noticeable after recovery.
Frequently Asked Questions
If performed on the right candidate, a male hair transplant can last the rest of the patient’s life. The donor hairs generally tend to be hormone-resistant. Therefore, they are less likely to fall out due to damage from testosterone. Some of the transplanted hair is expected not to survive, but this is a small percentage. Patients may also undergo more than one hair transplant procedure to see the ideal results.
Once the desired results have been obtained, men are likely to see permanent results with little significant hair loss following the procedure. Based on the patient’s hair type and pattern of loss, Dr. Jindal can explain the results that the patient can expect to enjoy.
It depends. Younger patients often will not benefit from a hair transplant surgery yet. This is because it is not entirely certain what pattern their hair loss will take. Performing a male hair transplant at this stage could lead to the patient losing the hair anyway and requiring another procedure. Therefore, Dr. Jindal often recommends that younger patients with the beginnings of hair loss start off with non-surgical methods.
The non-surgical techniques range from injections to low level laser therapy. Dr. Jindal can discuss what the ideal non-surgical hair restoration option for you is. This is based on the current state of your hair.
Sometimes, it depends on the type of hair transplant you undergo. The donor area may need to be shaved to adequately harvest the follicular unit. In this case, only the donor area is shaved. Some patients are able to use their remaining hair to cover the shaved area. Though, the hair tends to grow back quickly.
If possible, a patient may preemptively get a “fade” haircut that will help it look more natural and professional. However, this may not always be possible. Make sure to discuss this with Dr. Jindal if you want to cut your hair before surgery.
Older patients who have seen significant hair loss that takes on a distinct pattern are often the ideal candidates for a male hair transplant. A patient cannot be completely bald. The patient should at least maintain hair on the back and sides of the head, sometimes called the “horseshoe.” Though, it is best to seek treatment before it gets to that point.
Beyond this, a patient should be in relatively good health. It is okay if they have certain medical conditions like high blood pressure or diabetes, as long as it is well controlled and stable. While hair transplant for men is a non-invasive surgery that does not require general anesthesia, Dr. Jindal will still need to review your medical history to ensure you have a low risk of complications.
The cost of male hair transplant surgery in Raleigh, NC depends on a few factors.
One factor is the total number of hair grafts extracted and implanted during the procedure. Pricing starts at $5.50 per graft and $10,000 for 3,000 grafts.
