If you’re in the business of buying a house, car, or even a ten-speed bicycle you will make sure to assess the quality and propriety of all the components before investing in the beloved item. Sweet visions of you driving down a coastal highway or cycling through the mountains is the ultimate goal, but knowing that your vehicle is duly stocked, protected, and maximally functional is where true peace resides.
The same logic applies, with even more force and urgency, when deciding on what the best cosmetic hair surgery option is. In looking after the health and proper maintenance of your hair, assessment of quality, expertise, and methodology of the hair loss specialist is key.
Getting great results from a hair transplant surgery begins with identifying a highly experienced hair restoration surgeon. An experienced and highly scrupulous hair transplant surgeon can repair an uneven or thinning hairline with hands-on precision, specialized instrumentation, correct graft placement, and more.
Different individuals – young, old, black, white – have different hair growth and loss patterns, hairlines, scalp sizes, and other idiosyncrasies that a trained hair transplant specialist will take into account before operating. After an initial consultation, the specialist may recommend minimal action, moderate action, or sometimes no surgery at all. Sometimes the patient will not be a suitable candidate for hair transplant surgery, and restorative hair care products like groMD’s follicle activator spray or shampoo and conditioner are the best option for a hair stabilization program.
As we began to explain above, successfully restoring an uneven or thinning hairline requires a trained hair transplant surgeon who can closely analyze, assess, and execute on the operation. Beware, however, false advertising and inexperienced ‘surgeons’ abound.
For a receding or uneven hairline, hair transplant specialists typically preform a follicular unit extraction (FUE), which involves extracting follicles (typically from the back or sides of the head) with a micro-punch and then transplanting the uprooted follicles into the recipient site, i.e. wherever hair volume is desired. FUE is the most common hair transplant procedure and is less invasive than FUT or strip procedures, leaving almost no scarring. For an FUE procedure, the hair restoration specialist will consult with the patient to determine an appropriate hairline in order to produce a natural hair pattern and shape.
‘Knowing before you go’ has been the mantra of Beverly Hills and Orange County hair transplant veteran, Dr. Amir Yazdan. Just as you would carefully inquire into the quality and detailed specs of a new car, careful inquiry into the experience and methods of your hair transplant operator and his or her operation is imperative. Meeting with the doctor before, during, and after the procedure is very important, as many hair transplant organizations only schedule assistants and uncertified technicians to take care of the client. That is not proper patient care.
At Modena, patients always meet with Dr. Yazdan, a board-certified physician, for personalized solutions and intimate care.
