What is the cost of a hair transplant?
The cost depends on your particular case and the amount of hair loss you are experiencing. It may range between $5000 to $18000, depending on the complexity and size of the case. During your consultation, we will estimate the number of grafts you may need, which will determine the cost.
Will I experience pain during my procedure?
First, a local anesthetic is applied, which may cause slight discomfort. However, once the scalp is numbed, the procedure itself is not painful.
What should I do immediately after a hair transplant?
After a hair transplant, it is important to practice good aftercare to achieve the full benefits of the procedure. Dr. Demetri will provide a kit after the treatment to help keep the grafted area moist. Keeping the implanted grafts moist will increase the chance of the hair follicles becoming fully embedded into the skin.
Do not wash your hair for the first 7 days, and avoid touching the newly grafted area.
How long is the recovery period?
Because there are no surgical cuts or sutures involved, the most people can expect is some mild swelling and discomfort. The majority of our patients are able to resume their regular activities within 48 hours. Small scabs do form around the hair grafts which tend to fall off between 1-2 weeks after the procedure.
Will people be able to tell I had a hair transplant?
No! With our customized FUE transplantation technique, your results will look natural. We ensure that the direction of follicular hair growth in the transplanted area is the natural direction of your hair. Unlike older surgeries that left patients with linear scars in the back of the head, the FUE procedure we perform does not leave a scar. You can wear your hair any way you want!
How long do hair transplants last?
As long as the hair follicles are embedded completely and effectively, hair will continue to grow in the implanted area for a lifetime. Please follow Dr. Demetri’s instructions on aftercare to achieve your goals. Avoid activities or medication that can trigger hair loss.
Will aging affect my hair transplant?
Aging can make the hair follicles thin and produce thinner hair, but they will always grow hair. The hair grafts implanted into the area are examined carefully, and only healthy hair grafts are harvested. Your surgeon will never consider a donor site from a scalp area with dormant hair follicles.
If hair thinning is experienced through aging, the transplanted area will not return to the previous hair-loss pattern.
How successful is a hair transplant?
Very successful when it is performed by a hair restoration expert like Dr. Demetri! We typically see hair growth around 4 months after the procedure. The follicles will continue to grow for the next 12-16 months after the surgery is completed. Follow-up consultations will be scheduled to maintain or improve the results of the hair transplant.
