Are Hair Transplants Permanent?

While hair loss can be a natural part of aging, facing thinning hair lines or patchy baldness can seriously impact your self-esteem. Studies show that 40% of men show signs of pattern baldness or thinning hair by age 35 and 65% by age 60. Roughly 50% of women will experience hair loss in their lifetime. 

You don’t have to settle for ineffective topical hair restoration treatments or resign yourself to wigs and hats to hide your thinning hair. Miami Plastic Surgery offers minimally invasive hair restoration options to help restore your hairline and confidence. 

Why Am I Losing My Hair?

Realizing your hair isn’t as full and lush as it once was can be a distressing experience, especially if you don’t know why it’s happening. There are a myriad of factors that can cause premature hair loss, including but not limited to:

  • Stress: significant stress can cause your hair follicles to go dormant, resulting in sudden and significant hair loss, often in clumps or patches.
  • Aging: as we get older, our hair follicles can shrink, causing hair to grow thinner and more fragile. In some cases, hair may stop growing altogether, leading to receding hairlines, baldness at the crown of the head, or other hair loss.
  • Hormonal changes: our hormones naturally fluctuate throughout our lifetime, but sudden and significant hormonal changes can cause hair loss. Post-natal and menopausal hormone changes are among the most common causes of hair loss in women.
  • Alopecia areata: sometimes hair loss is caused by an autoimmune disorder. Alopecia areata is a condition in which your body attacks your hair follicles, causing patchy hair loss.
  • Tight hairstyles: over manipulation or excessive stress on the roots can cause damage to the hair follicles and result in hair loss. This is most common around the edges and nape of the neck, but can affect significant areas of your scalp over time.
  • Genetics: if thinning hair or balding is common in your family, it is likely you will also experience hair loss at some point in your life. Genetics can play a big role in when, how, and where hair loss happens, with some seeing the first signs as young as their teens.
  • Medical treatments such as chemotherapy: while intensive medical treatments like chemotherapy can be life-saving, they don’t come without side effects. Hair loss is common among cancer patients because chemotherapy targets rapidly growing cells, which are abundant in your scalp and hair follicles.

Whatever the cause of your hair loss, don’t lose hope. Our hair restoration experts at Miami Plastic Surgery are well-versed in treating a variety of hair loss conditions to help you regain confidence in the way you look.

Are Hair Transplants An Option for Me?

When most people think about hair restoration in Miami, the first thing that comes to mind is hair transplants. This minimally invasive procedure has been around for decades with many advancements in the field since it was first performed in 1952. Modern hair transplant technology gives you amazing results with your own naturally growing hair.

But is a hair transplant a good option for you? 

For a hair transplant to be successful, you need adequate donor sites. These are the areas of the scalp – usually at the back of the head – that still have healthy hair growth. Because hair transplants replace dormant or damaged hair follicles with healthy ones from other areas of the scalp, having enough to harvest is important. If there is too little hair left, you may not be able to achieve the results you want. 

Generally, the earlier you take action to reverse premature hair loss the better. Smaller treatment areas require less transplantation and heal more quickly than more significant patches. They also tend to heal more quickly, allowing you to get back to your normal hair care and styling sooner. 

Are Hair Transplants Permanent?

Yes. Unlike other hair loss treatments that merely mask the issue, hair transplants actually restore natural hair growth in the treated area. Post treatment you may see some shedding as your scalp adjusts, but new hair will fully grow back within just three to four months. 

At Miami Plastic Surgery, we use the most advanced hair transplant technologies and techniques to provide exact harvesting and placement, delivering repeatable results. 

Our hair restoration services combine the NeoGraft™ system and the FUE technique to offer a discrete solution to hair loss. Our patients achieve natural looking results with no linear scar, minimal downtime and a shorter recovery period.

The NeoGraft™ automated hair transplantation system is the only complete harvesting system on the market and has the only ‘NO TOUCH’ implantation technology. This revolutionary system uses pneumatic controls to precisely extract complete individual hair follicles which can be immediately transplanted to the selected areas of the scalp.

While we have absolute faith in our hair transplant methods, it is important to maintain realistic expectations for your results. This is your naturally growing hair, so some future thinning may occur as you continue to age. Additionally, transplantation may not be for you depending on the cause of your hair loss. Chemotherapy patients, for example, may not have active follicles to harvest for a transplant. Luckily in most cases dormant hair follicles will begin to grow new hair within three to six weeks of finishing your chemotherapy regimen. 

If you’re ready to stop hiding your hair loss and get back to living life fully, contact us today and schedule your hair transplant consultation.
