Hair Transplant

A full head of hair signifies youth and vitality, and it also protects the scalp. However, not everyone is fortunate enough to have fully functioning hair follicles in all areas of their scalp or face. For patients who want to correct hair loss or thinning hair, Dr. Agullo offers hair transplantation. Dr. Agullo understands the science of hair loss and uses his expertise to perform hair transplant procedures with results that imitate natural hair growth. Hair transplantation can restore a more youthful, attractive appearance that can improve your confidence and overall quality of life.

The Benefits of a Hair Transplant

A receding hairline can significantly age your appearance. By restoring a youthful hairline with a natural shape, you can rejuvenate your appearance.

The eyebrows are often taken for granted, but without them, the face can look undefined. Restoring your eyebrows can give you a more balanced facial appearance and help convey your expressions.

Few things symbolize masculinity like a full beard. Hair transplantation can correct patchy or thin facial hair to finally give you the thick beard or scruff you desire.

Existing scars in balding areas will be camouflaged once they are covered with hair. Scars from previous cosmetic surgery can also be concealed by hair transplanted around them. In addition, the resulting scar in the donor area will be hidden by the existing surrounding hair.

Hair Transplantation FAQ

arrowWhat type of anesthesia is used for the hair transplant procedure?

Intravenous (IV) sedation or local anesthesia in both the donor and the recipient areas may be used for hair transplantation.

arrowIs hair transplantation painful?

Sedation or anesthesia will keep the patient comfortable during the procedure. After treatment, any discomfort can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication.

arrowHow long does the procedure take?

The length of the procedure will depend on the technique used, the area being treated, and the size of the treatment area. FUE is a longer procedure because several thousand small incisions are made for the hair removal from the donor site, while FUT uses a single, long incision to remove a strip of hair.

arrowHow long does it take to heal after treatment?

Healing time with FUE is generally five to seven days. FUT recovery is usually longer because the long, thin incision takes more time to heal.

arrowAre the results of hair transplantation permanent?

After treatment, the hairs transplanted into the treatment area will permanently grow just like your natural hair.
