Hair Transplant Q&A with Dr. Yazdan

Can I Cut My Hair After a Hair Transplant?

Absolutely! Your newly transplanted hair is from your own body and acts like your own natural hair would. Once the transplanted hair grows in, you will cut it as normal. Hair transplant hair will grow normally and seamlessly (if transplanted by a qualified expert and specialist). You can style it, grow it, perm it any way you’d like.

How can I pay for my hair transplant?

There are a number of ways you can pay for a hair transplant. There are payment plans that fit any budget. Generally insurance does not cover a hair transplant, but check with your provider.

Can you travel after a hair transplant?

Yes! We have patients that come from all over the world to have the procedure with us in Newport Beach, Las Vegas or Los Angeles. Our patients come from Canada, Italy, Germany, China and the Middle East – and all schedule a return flight only a day or two after the procedure.

What will I look like after my hair transplant?

Immediately after the procedure you will only have a bit of swelling and a bit of redness on the scalp. You will have a ‘buzz cut’ look that will show your beautiful new hair line of newly implanted grafts.

When can I go back to work after a hair transplant?

This will depend on the size and type of transplant you receive, but generally speaking you will be able to return to work after only three days.

What is the difference between FUT and FUE?

Both FUT and FUE are hair transplant procedures. The primary difference between the two techniques is in the way we move the hair. FUT procedure involves surgically removing a strip of hair from the back of the head. The FUE involves removing grafts from the donor area one by one. No sutures, slits or staples are required.
