Modern hair transplant has been gaining popularity from the past decade. Whether you have lost your much hair in a hair fall or have baldness, hair transplantation provides effective results. Many people walk into a Hair Transplant Clinic with numerous frequently asked questions about hair transplantation. Most of them revolve around the cost, treatments, side effects, recovery time, results and expectations. So, we have decided to answer all the common queries about a hair transplant below:
- Q: Why Dr. Robert Jones M.D.?
A: Dr. Robert Glyn Jones has extensive experience in the field of cosmetic surgery including hair transplantation. He offers a prevailing standard and an undetectable natural appearance to his patients in hair restoration. Dr. Jones is the first physician among North American physicians to use a modern method for hair follicle transplants. This new strategy leads to hair transplants to new levels of accuracy and arts as the pattern and direction of each new hair can be restricted.
- Q: What is a hair transplant?
A: Hair transplantation is an artistic mechanism of redistribution, where donor dominant hair follicles are taken from donor fields such as; the neck, chest or the very back of the head. Then they are transplanted into thinning or balding areas. The present microsurgical techniques give a very natural appearance to the patient.
- Q: How long does the transplanted hair last?
A: During a hair restoration operation, donor dominant hair follicles are brought from donor areas so they are not susceptible to the balding process. They are permanent. Even after relocation, this hair will maintain its genetic properties, so all the transplanted hair lasts a lifetime for most of the patients. In some cases, as the patient ages, a tiny portion of the hair transplanted could be lost.
- Q: How many hairs are transplanted per session?
A: If we talk about Dr. Jones, he can transplant up to 2000 microscopically-created grafts per session. Each graft is an individual hair follicle or can consist of up to 4 hairs.
- Q: Does the hair transplant hurt?
A: Before performing hair restoration surgery, local anesthetics are given to the patient. So due to the effect of local anesthetics, the patient feels nothing. The majority of the patients are pretty comfortable during and after their hair transplantation procedure. Only some patients complain about a little pain after the hair restoration. So, medicine is given to the patients that control their pain and give them relief.
