Frequently Asked Questions

Hair on the scalp is genetically programmed to be:

  • Sensitive to the male hormone Dihydrotestostone (DHT)
  • or
  • Resistant to DHT.
This hair is sensitive to DHT (For which heredity is the major determinant) and those which are affected by certain skin diseases, cause the hair follicle to wither away and die. The hair which are resistant to DHT (usually the sides and back of the head) continue to grow throughout life.

Permanent, lifetime hair is found in good supply in nearly all men, even severely bald men at the sides and back of the head.

You will be given sedation to make you comfortable and drowsy. Not only will you NOT have pain, you will have little memory of the procedure the next day.

The skin at the back, top and front of the head will be numbed with a local anesthetic to completely prevent any pain. Additionally, you will be given intravenous medication to prevent any discomfort.

Hair transplantation is a minor outpatient procedure because it only involves the skin on the head and takes about six hours.

After anesthesia is administered to the back of your scalp, the surgeon will remove a narrow strip of skin. The strip is then cut into "follicular units" which consist of 1, 2, or 3 hair. This is done by a team of four or more highly trained technicians. These follicular units are then transplanted into tiny incisions on the front and top of your scalp. Each graft is skillfully placed in proper position and angled so that they grow to form a natural hairline.

During your procedure you may read a book, or choose to read a magazine, listen to music, watch a move or take a nap; while out staff is busy preparing and transplanting your new hairline.

Ninety percent of men and many women are good candidates for hair restoration procedures.

Hair transplantation is more affordable today than ever. The charges are based on the number of grafts. The important consideration is to receive the natural coverage and density desired within your budget. We accept major credit cards, checks and cash payments. We can arrange financing for you to where it will cost just $5 - $7 per day (Over 5 years). AND YOU WILL HAVE PERMANENT HAIR FOR A LIFETIME!!! Unlike the cost of other treatments, hair transplantation surgery is a ONE TIME EXPENSE.

The procedure of hair transplantation has a graft survival rate of over 95%.

Most patients return to work after 3 days. There are no bandages and very few restrictions on activities.

The hair will begin to grow in 8-12 weeks and you will see full results in 12-15 months.

Usually not. The hair on the back of your head is genetically programmed to grow for a lifetime. A good supply is generally available for transplant purposes in nearly all men and women. There is no magical age where hair loss starts or stops. An earlier start will allow you to avoid the "BALDING" state and to make sure you look natural along the way. Further hair can be added on if you wish in a second procedure.

They are rare, and usually minor in nature such as wound infection, for which you will be taking an antibiotic. A thorough history and physical examination will be undertaken and the risk of allergic reactions will be minimized. A complete blood test will also be conducted to detect any hidden problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or hepatitis.

By using Minoxidil and Proprecia. Whil Rogaine and Propecia have been proven to keep the hair you have they will not re-grow hair from lost follicles. Their greatest benefit seems to be in slowing down hair loss. Rogaine and Propecia can be a part of a very effective hair restoration plan. Propecia is prescribed for all our male patients.

Dr. Nawaz will measure your scalp elasticity and the density of your donor hair per cubic centimeter, then determine your needs and desired look before deciding how wide a "donor" strip to remove. The result is a thin line hidden under the hair and is not noticeable.
