Should I Get Hair Transplant Surgery?
If you have a receding hairline or thinning hair, a hair transplant may be the best way to restore your hair. Modern hair transplant procedures are much less invasive and more effective than older “strip harvesting” transplants where a portion of your scalp is surgically removed, from which donor hair follicles are taken for transplant – a long and arduous process. With the innovative NeoGraft and ARTAS hair transplant technologies, individual hair follicles are collected from the thicker parts of your hair (at the back of the head) and transplanted individually to restore a more youthful head of hair.
The ARTAS robotic hair transplant system
The most modern, innovative hair transplant system available is the revolutionary ARTAS robotic hair transplant system. It is a surgeon-controlled system that allows us to design your new, natural-looking
hairline in 3D, followed by a robotically-assisted transplant procedure. ARTAS gives us all of the benefits of modern hair transplant technology without many of the downsides of operating by hand – giving you precise, effective, and dramatic results.
Is it necessary to use minoxidil after a hair transplant?
It is not required to use minoxidil after hair transplant, though we may recommend this medication to help make the newly transplanted hair grow faster and produce faster results. If you have any adverse reaction to minoxidil or you don’t want to take medication, you don’t have to, and you will still achieve dramatic results from your hair transplant.
Does a hair transplant leave a scar?
Modern hair transplant surgeries only leave tiny, practically invisible scars that are hidden by your hair – regardless of your hairstyle. Older hair transplant procedures used to leave unsightly linear scars on the back of your scalp, but modern hair transplant technology avoids this problem entirely.
How long does a hair transplant last?
Hair transplants cannot halt hereditary hair loss, so how long hair transplants last depends on your genetic makeup. Most patients enjoy their restored hairlines for many years, and some even for the rest of their lives. Additional hair restoration therapies like our PRP hair loss treatment performed combined with your hair transplant to reduce hereditary hair loss can enhance the quality and longevity of your results.
How successful is hair transplant surgery?
Modern hair transplant surgery produces results far beyond earlier techniques and can restore thinning hair, a receding hairline, or balding areas. With the revolutionary ARTAS robotic hair transplant system, you can expect genuinely exceptional results. Imagine a fuller and more youthful look, in less time, and with better results – that’s the beauty of ARTAS, a groundbreaking development in hair restoration technology.
