“Can they tell? They are definitely looking at it,” are some thoughts that run through your mind when you lose your hair. You try new hairstyles, cuts, and products that promise volume and regrowth, but they do nothing more than slow down the process. ARC Plastic Surgery in Miami knows your concern and can help with hair restoration. Utilizing possibly three different methods, Dr. Jeremy White will be able to restore your self-esteem and get rid of the anxiety that comes with hair loss. Schedule your consultation today.
Hair loss affects both men and women. Though it affects men more commonly, on an individual level, the thought of going bald can cause anxiety, depression, and makes going to social events more stressful across all genders. ARC Plastic Surgery wants to help you regain what you’ve lost, both hair and confidence. Dr. White utilizes three proven methods to help restore and revitalize the hair follicles.
Follicle Unit Extraction (FUE) takes your existing healthy hair follicles and moves them to the areas in need. This is much more preferred to the older methods that left one with the “hair plug” look. Instead, you will have a natural look that will continue to grow and stays with you. While we do perform hair transplant by the traditional strip method as well, FUE hair transplant gives the opportunity to replenish your hair without gaining the tell-tale scar in the back of your scalp.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) uses plasma found in your blood that is processed and injected into your scalp to stimulate new hair growth. The PRP provides the nutrients needed to thicken your hair either as a stand alone treatment or while new hair grows, giving you a fuller look.
Dr. White may decide to prescribe a medication like Finasteride (Propecia) to treat your hair loss. Nutrafol is an additional natural supplement that is clinically proven to support hair growth by tackling 6 of the leading causes of hair loss: hormones, stress, your lifestyle, metabolism, nutrition, and natural aging.
After hair restoration treatments, your hair will become fuller, thicker, and of course, it’s all yours. You will be able to get rid of the delaying products and free up some space in your cabinets. Most importantly, you will feel good about how you look. You will be able to enjoy social gatherings without reaching for a hat or anxiously worrying if anyone is staring at your hair. ARC Plastic Surgery’s primary goal, more than anything, is to give you confidence back by making sure you do not have to worry about how you look.
Your specific hair restoration therapy will depend on where you are in your hair loss journey. If you have been steadily losing hair for five years, your balding pattern has been established, or you have reached a class 3 or above on the Norwood scale, then FUE hair transplants may be best. If it is early enough, PRP or Nutrafol will help. It is best to discuss your expectations with Dr. White during your hair restoration consultation at ARC Plastic Surgery.
Your hair restoration procedure will be unique to you, depending on your desired results and how long you’ve been losing hair. With the FUE Transplant, the back of your head will be shaved by the ARC Plastic Surgery Team. Dr. White will next remove the hair follicles one by one. Small spots heal the region, which your existing hair will conceal.
Next, Dr. White will prepare the recipient site by cleaning and anesthetizing the skin before creating tiny incisions for follicular implantation. He will meticulously insert each graft into these incisions to create a naturally lush appearance. Your FUE transplant may take anywhere between four and eight hours, depending on the extent of your procedure. If you continue to lose hair or decide you want more hair later, you may require another operation for additional hair graft transplants. If a Vampire PRP hair therapy is chosen, blood will be drawn and processed, separating the plasma from the red blood cells. The plasma is then injected into the scalp.
You won’t have to disrupt your day-to-day life much. Simply avoid immersing your hair in water and avoid exercise for about a week. If there is any pain, it should be easily managed with over-the-counter medications.
It’s important to discuss your expectations with Dr. White to set realistic expectations. Results will vary from person to person, depending on many factors.
