The State of the Art in Men’s Hair Transplants

hair transplant surgery results mclean virginiaFor decades there was very little talk about hair transplants except as the butt of some bad joke. Millions had dreamed of getting back the hair they had in their youth but the stigma attached to it resulted in many holding back on considering the procedure.

Times have changed and hair transplants are getting the respect they deserve. Men are undergoing this procedure every day. There is no single reason that has caused the rise in hair transplant popularity. Several medical, technological and cultural factors have all been contributing factors to create a growing number of men ready to the plunge and get their natural hair back.

Leading Hair Transplant Technology

With advances in hair transplant technology, the most common hair restoration procedures is the follicular unit excision (FUE) and the follicular unit transplantation (FUT). With the most recent medical advancements, both methods result in less downtime than ever before.

Both procedures harvest hair follicles from a donor area of the scalp — that is an area of the scalp that doesn’t lose hair. These hair follicles are then transplanted into the scalp when baldness has occurred. While each patient grows hair at different rates, usually within a few months the patient should notice hair growth. Those patients that have the FUT method where a strip is taken from the donor area, a small scar will be hidden by new hair growth. Any scarring from FUE transplants is easily hidden even with shorter haircuts.

By taking advantage of the latest research, training, and technology like the ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration System, patients can expect results to be even more natural-looking.

Hair Transplants & Self-Esteem

Without question, our hair is something that defines us like no other body part. It becomes part of our personality and self-expression. While some men are happy to embrace baldness, for others it can be quite devastating. Some men feel they are losing some of their youth as more and more hair falls out and this can often affect their self-esteem.
