We understand that this procedure is delicate and must be approached differently for each individual to help deliver the vision they have in mind. Hair transplant surgery is fairly non-invasive, virtually painless, and offers superb results for patients of all ages. Whether you are seeking to achieve more filled out facial hair, or shape a flattering hairline, we can help deliver the perfect approach for your needs.
Hair transplant is a cosmetic surgery technique that sources hair follicles from a donor site on the body, typically an area near the back of the head, around the nape of the neck or above the ears.
The hair follicles from the donor site are directly implanted into the area experiencing balding or thin follicle production, to develop a fuller hair density. This area, generally known as the recipient site, should start to naturally fill out as time goes on. You’ll notice a natural development of hair growth that can complement your appearance. This treatment is effective for both patients who are transitioning from FTM, or MTF.
Hair restoration treatments are available, in various forms, from over-the-counter choices to infomercial products, to high-end cosmetic surgery solutions. The actual procedure can take some time to complete, with larger areas easily taking four to eight hours. The desired thickness of the hair can also impact the length of treatment. You may also want to consider the possibility of follow-up treatments to ensure the best result or to accommodate any future hair thinning or loss down the road. Overall, patients can expect that anywhere from 10 to 80 of the transplanted hair will grow back. Patients can expect to see this happen around three to four months after the treatment and continue as hair would grow naturally.
Hair restoration surgery can often be the final touch for patients who are transitioning. For feminization, it can help deliver a beautifully full head of hair with a flattering hairline that helps compliment your new profile.
For those seeking to achieve a more masculine result, hair can be transplanted to create a mustache, beard, sideburns, and other types of facial hair. In small amounts, it may even help provide hair on other areas of the body, like the chest and body. When performed by a Pacific Plastic Surgery Group cosmetic surgeon, you can achieve natural-looking results that compliment your final appearance beautifully.
