As Absolique Trichologist, I get asked about hair transplants frequently. I will discuss reasons why hair transplants may or may not be the hair loss treatment for you. Hair transplanting has been around for a long time. But, like all technology and medicine, it has greatly improved since its inception in the 80’s. The simple idea behind hair transplants is to take donor hair from a location on the scalp and transplant it to another location, generally where there is hair thinning or baldness.
The methods used nowadays in hair transplants are single follicular transplants that are undetectable even with Absolique microscope, amazing and intricate work. Gone are the unsightly donor site scars and transplant site plugs and tufts of hair. There days it is microsurgery and nothing but spectacular, when done right.
Hair Transplants, are they the Hair Loss Treatment for you:
- How healthy is your donor site
- How healthy is the transplant site
- What is the cause of your hair loss or hair thinning
- Have you addressed the cause of your hair loss or hair thinning
- What is your recovery plan
- What is your maintenance plan
As a Trichologist, in the hair industry for 30 years, I have seen loads of hair transplants. Good bad and horrific. Even with all the techniques today, and the impressive results, transplants fail to answer many questions of your individual hair loss or hair thinning concerns. My main concerns are seeing tens of thousands of dollars spent on transplant surgery without even addressing the underlying cause. Recently I met a female client with the most amazing single follicular hair transplants that were simply falling out because she was so iron deficient and with a strong hereditary influence of Female Pattern Thinning.
Sure, the transplants made her hair look better for a short time, before they all fell out. Thankfully in this case there is no scarring so it is potentially possible that we may be able to regrow hair out of the transplanted hair follicle, time will tell. In another case of amazing transplant surgery, no maintenance was provided so the hair continued to thin all around the transplants, this is not ideal. Simple measures can be put in place by Absolique Hair Health Clinic Trichologist to get the best out of your hair transplants, pre-and post-surgery to maximise and retain your results.
In my humble opinion, transplants are best used when there is no hope of hair regrowth, as in the cases of scarring alopecia, extreme pattern hair thinning when left unattended for many years and verging on baldness. When hair follicles are still open, alive and receptive to natural hair loss treatments, why not give that a go? Certainly, will save you a load of money and improve your health and awareness along the way with Absolique Hair Health Clinic Combination Therapy Holistic Hair Loss Treatments.
