Hair Transplant

With aging, it is common for men to find a receding hairline or hair thinning where it wasn’t before. The internet provides a lot of options promising to solve this: special shampoos, supplements and other questionable products with side effects. When these prove ineffective, you can find yourself frustrated, having spent valuable resources such as money and time with little to no results.

Some people do this in order to avoid the hair transplant surgery, because of fear or social taboo. Hair transplant is an increasingly common procedure; it is completely safe, and has very few little possible complications. 

We at L’Allure Clinics count with specialists ready to respond to all the questions and doubts you may have on the procedure, including your post-surgery expectations. It is important you feel comfortable and ready before arranging the surgery, so you are welcome to visit us as many times as you need. Make sure to ask your surgeon about their qualifications and experience, and how many times they have performed this procedure and if they faced complications during them.

People choose hair transplant over other treatments like prescription medications (which attack the issue by helping blood flow to the hair follicles), because it offers efficient and truly lasting results. It is even more effective if applied during the early stages of baldness; this has caused a huge increase in popularity in recent years.

Baldness & Male Pattern Baldness

Male baldness is caused when dihydrotestosterone or DTH (a form of testosterone responsible for many physical changes during puberty) mistakenly attacks hair follicles on the scalp. With time, the involved follicles will produce weaker and lighter hair, until they stop producing it at all.

Don’t worry, you are not the first nor the last man to struggle with this issue. Most men go bald because of a hereditary condition, androgenetic alopecia, commonly known as male pattern baldness. This is the most common cause of hair loss in men. 

If you have a close relative with this condition, you’re most likely to endure it too. This is particularly true if they are on the maternal side of your family. In this case there is at least a 25% chance you will start losing your hair by age 21, but this can occur even in your teenage years, with the likelihood of it increasing with age.

Several studies have proved that white men are more prone to baldness than other ethnicities, revealing it is less common in black men and occurs more slowly in Asian men.

Even if hereditary male pattern baldness doesn’t run in your family, 50% of men experience some degree of hair loss by age 35. Finally, around 70% of men will start losing hair as they grow older. It is a normal situation bound to happen for most of us.

Despite being the main reason of balding, there are many other causes that can trigger hair loss:

Nutritional Deficiency

There are some crucial nutrients involved in healthy hair growth. A deficient intake of iron, zinc, vitamins b or vitamin c can lead to losing more hair than usual.

Telogen effluvium

If you undergo a physical trauma or a severe stressful event (such as an accident, surgery or illness) it may shock your body and interfere with the hair follicles’ regular cycle.

Medicines

Certain medicines and recreational drugs are known to cause hair loss.

Injuries

Burns, scalds, surgeries and accidents may permanently damage the affected area.

Alopecia areata

A condition in which your immune system mistakenly perceives healthy hair follicles as enemies. This results in hair falling in small patches usually in the head, but may also affect the beard or eyebrows. If the follicle is severely damaged then it may not grow back

Who Is Suitable for a Hair Transplant?

L’Allure Clinics reminds you that, as with any cosmetic surgery, you must be in good physical and mental health to proceed. Keep a positive mindset and realistic expectations of what this procedure can do for you. Hair transplant surgery is most recommended if:

Top Dermatology Treatments

As with other surgical procedures, it is wise to prepare beforehand. We advise you to:

  • Stop smoking: Cigarettes and such decrease blood flow, which can impact negatively your healing process. You should at least avoid smoking before surgery and during recovery. 
  • Avoid blood thinners: Aspirins and anti-inflammatory drugs are counterproductive for the healing process, as they enhance bleeding. Make sure to notify your surgeon if you take any of these on a regular basis.
  • Arrange for help during recovery: Ask a close friend or someone in your family to give you company at least for the first night of your recovery at home.
  • Arrange a few days off work: You will need some time off work to recover properly. You should consider having a full week of rest. If it is not an option, a minimum of 3 days is recommended by our specialists.

The surgery time expected is up to 5 hours; but mainly depends on the amount of hair being transplanted. Remember it is a delicate procedure in which the surgeon redistributes existing donor hair from thicker parts of the scalp to the thinner ones. Concentration and skill are required. Generally, thicker donor hair is preferred regardless of their coloring.

Hair transplant is a procedure with minimal invasive nature that leaves no noticeable scars. Usually, local anesthesia is used; this means you will be conscious during the process, but do not worry as you will not feel any pain or discomfort.

Our certified specialists are ready to explain the advantages and help you choose between the 2 approaches available at L’Allure Clinics:

  • Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): This procedure involves removing individual hairs from the donor area to insert them in the desired area using a specialist microsurgical needle. It is the most popular as it usually leaves less noticeable scarring. As it takes longer, and depending on the area, your surgeon may recommend 2 or 3 sessions instead of one.

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT): This method consists in detaching a strip of scalp skin from the back of the head, to attach it in the desired area; this strip is usually a few inches long. It may be the most suitable approach for some patients.

Right after the procedure, your scalp may swell, feel tender or numb, but you will be reasonably mobile on your own. There is no need to stay overnight at our facilities, you will be able to rest at home. If required, you can ask your surgeon for pain killers; if severe pain is experienced, don't hesitate to notify your surgeon.

During the first week of recovery you cannot wash your hair and should avoid any sexual activity. It is important to sleep on your back for this period, which can be hard for some patients but it is necessary for the hairs to connect to your bloodstream. 

A week after surgery you may remove your bandages. After this point you can wash your hair gently by hand, but beware you should avoid touching the grafts as they are not yet completely secured.

At the second week, any non-dissolvable stitches can be removed.

You will be fully recovered in 4 weeks. Prior to that avoid activities such as exercise and heavy lifting are not allowed. 

At first, the transplanted hair will often fall out within 2 or 3 weeks after the procedure, this is completely normal. New hair begins to grow around 6 months. From 12 to 18 months after surgery, you should see the full results of the procedure, resulting in a more dense but still natural-looking hair accompanied by a boost in self-confidence and wellbeing. If done properly, a successful hair transplant will last decades, even the rest of your life; if not, it will probably last at least into old age.

Depending on the results, you may be prescribed hair-growing medications to further help your hair growth.

As time passes, there is a chance that the donor areas (usually the back of the head, the back or the sides) experience thinning hair, which some may find convenient.

Again, hair transplant is an increasingly common and safe cosmetic procedure. Although there is a small chance that your body rejects the hair follicles, this is an extremely rare scenario. 

As with any other surgeries, there is a small risk of bleeding and infection. In either case, our specialists will handle any complications. If you are experiencing severe pain, make sure to notify your surgeon.

Also, there is a small chance of an allergic reaction to anesthesia, which our specialists are ready to treat. This would be normal and handeable, it is rarely lethal and tends to not have long-lasting effects.

Finally, there is a chance you may not be happy with the results, which is why you should check other patients' results and ask any questions you may have during the consultations with your surgeon.

If you want to avoid surgery at all costs, there are medications presented as foam or liquids (Regaine or Rogaine) and tablets (Finasteride), that either help grow or prevent testosterone from converting to DTH.

Scalp micropigmentation is a non-invasive approach that consists in making a medical tattoo that mimics the look of short hair.

It is important to know the cause of your hair loss. If it is caused by your diet or stress levels for example, you may see improvement by changing your diet or choosing a different career path.
