Hair Transplant in Druid Hills, GA
Baldness or thinning hair is an unfortunate and uncomfortable condition for both men and women. Dr. Frederick T. Work, Jr. can provide hair transplant procedures for Druid Hills residents at the Hair Transplant Center of Atlanta.
What Is a Hair Transplant?
Modern hair transplant techniques use hair from the back or sides of the head to thicken the hair on the top and front of the head, where most balding and thinning occurs. During the treatment, the doctor inserts the donor hair into the balding or thinning area with many small incisions.
Who Is a Candidate for Hair Transplantation?
Candidates for hair transplantation should have enough healthy donor hair on the back or sides of the scalp that some can be effectively transplanted. At the Hair Transplant Center of Atlanta, Dr. Work will examine your donor hair to determine whether it can be used for the procedure. Anesthesia is required during the procedure, so candidates should be healthy and able to receive anesthesia.
Can Women Undergo Hair Transplantation Surgery?
Although hair loss is less common in women than in men, female baldness does occur. The hair transplant procedure can effectively treat baldness and thinning hair in women. If the hair loss is a result of hormone changes, you should see your physician to try to rebalance your hormone levels before you receive the hair transplant procedure. This can prevent further hair loss from occurring and will extend the procedure’s results.
How Long Does It Take for Hair Transplantation Patients to Have Their Final Results?
It typically takes about three months for new hair to start growing in the treatment area. Between six and nine months after the procedure, you will experience the full results.
