Hair loss is a troublesome and embarrassing problem for both men and women. Thanks to today's technology, there is hope. Hair transplant or restoration offers permanent hair restoration for anyone suffering from thinning hair or baldness.
What should I expect during the hair transplant procedure?
Hair Transplant procedures can last several hours. In most cases, you should expect to undergo multiple treatments, possibly over a period of one or two years for optimal results. Hair transplant is performed under local anesthesia in a Newport Beach surgicenter. Should you require more extensive surgery, Dr. Savalia may recommend general anesthesia for your comfort.
Hair restoration is performed using either segments of the scalp or grafts containing hair from a donor area of the body. These segments are then surgically attached to the areas where thinning or baldness is evident. There are several types of grafts available that vary in size and shape, and Dr. Savalia can advise you regarding which hair restoration treatment is best for you.
What should I know about hair transplant aftercare?
Dr. Savalia will thoroughly advise you about aftercare following your treatment. He may prescribe oral and topical medications to alleviate any potential swelling or discomfort.
