In most cases, hair loss is genetic. If it is determined that you have genetic hair loss, hair transplantation can successfully restore your lost hair. During hair transplant surgery, Dr. Yazdan removes donor hair follicles from the sides and back of the scalp and relocates them on the top of the scalp where the hair loss has occurred.
The hair transplant procedure is a minor surgical procedure and you will be awake throughout the procedure, although sedatives can be provided to reduce anxiety.
A hair transplant can normally take 6 to 12 hours. During the procedure you can watch TV, eat, and even work on your tablet or phone. Our goal is to make the procedure as comfortable as possible.
Hair Line Design
The first step in the hair transplant process is the design of the hairline. Dr. Yazdan will sketch a suggestion for placement of the hairline. You are encouraged to participate in this decision process.
Prior to the procedure Dr. Yazdan will gently apply local anesthesia similar to what you have during a dental visit to the donor area and later the recipient area. The discomfort is minor and once applied there is no pain.
