Hair Restoration Options

While surgical hair transplantation is the only permanent and the most significant solution to hair loss, these other solutions can help in your fight against hair loss.

Surgical hair transplantation

Surgical hair transplantion involves transplanting hairs and follicles from one area of the head to another. Most causes of hair loss may be traced to the hormone DHT. In hair transplantation, DHT-resistant follicles are removed from the scalp and artfully placed in thinning areas on the top and front of the head. Our patients find there are many benefits of hair transplantation over other treatment options. You may also wish to see the steps involved in a Bosley hair replacement procedure.

Hairpieces and Toupees

A hairpiece can provide an instant cosmetic fix to hair loss, but it does come with compromises. The cost varies according to type and quality, and the price of a high-quality hair system and maintenance may often be greater over time than both surgical and non-surgical options. The sudden transition in appearance from thinning hair to a full head of hair may draw more attention than you might like. There is also the persistent potential of embarrassing slips or a hairpiece falling off. Some wearers don't like the feel of a hairpiece and do not consider it a natural or comfortable option. While hairpieces are available in an extensive range of colors, hair types, and styles, they are often the least natural looking option for hair restoration.
