Have you ever looked at a male celebrity who still has a full head of hair despite aging? Do they use shampoos? Serums? TOUPEE’S? We are here to help shed some light on how common hair loss truly is, and why those who are in the limelight have chosen hair transplant surgery!
What is hair transplant surgery?
Hair transplant surgery is a minimally invasive procedure with very little downtime. There are two different methods, FUE (follicular unit extraction) or FUT (follicular unit transplant). Depending on which method is chosen, patients can expect to see results 12-15 months post surgery!
How common is hair loss?
Both males and females experience hair loss to some extent. About 50% of all men over the age of 50 will be affected by male pattern baldness. Additionally, more than 50% of women will experience noticeable hair loss!
What does a hair transplant consultation consist of at Utah Facial Plastics?
The hair transplant consultation involves meeting with one of our surgeons who will analyze both your hair and hair loss pattern. During this time, Drs. Thompson or Henstrom will determine the number of grafts to adequately fill thinning or balding areas of the scalp. Once our surgeons have thoroughly answered your questions, our Patient Care Coordinators will discuss cost, financing options, as well as moving forward with surgery.
