Hair transplantation is a safe, permanent solution to the problem of hair loss. The first known hair transplant in the United States was performed in 1952. Since then, the techniques used in hair restoration have evolved and matured to the point that the results of high-quality contemporary hair transplants look so natural that they're virtually undetectable, even by other doctors and barbers. Many of the advancements in hair transplantation of the past forty years originated here at Bosley Medical, which became a full-time hair transplant practice in 1974.
At Bosley, we use follicular unit techniques to imitate natural hair growth. Hairs grow in tiny groupings (known as follicular units) of just 1, 2, 3, or 4 hairs each. The Bosley process begins with the removal of hair from the "donor area" at the back or sides of the patient's head, where healthy hair follicles are most likely to be plentiful. The grafts of hair are then transferred in follicular units to the areas of the patient's scalp where hair has become thin.
Bosley's expert hair restoration surgeons combine exacting medical techniques with a finely honed aesthetic sense. The creation of a truly natural-looking transplanted hairline requires an artist's eye. In performing hair transplants, doctors must take many elements into account, including hair color, hair texture, and the unique direction of each patient's natural hair growth pattern.
Hair Transplant Surgery
Hair restoration surgery is a simple outpatient procedure performed under local anesthetic. When you arrive at Bosley, you and your physician will discuss your goals for the procedure and finalize the details of your hair transplant surgery. The hair in your donor area will be trimmed, and you'll receive a local anesthetic. Then, your doctor will remove tissue from your donor area. Once the follicular units have been prepared for the graft, the doctor will position them on your scalp in the recipient area. After the first few days following a procedure, the typical patient experiences little or no discomfort. Once you've had surgery at Bosley Medical, you'll enjoy normal hair growth and a natural appearance.
The term "hair replacement" is a common misnomer for a procedure more accurately known as hair transplant or hair restoration. Hair is not being replaced – rather, your own working hair follicles are taken from a healthy part of your scalp and transplanted to the recipient area. Here, the hair continues to grow naturally, restoring your hairline to its previous appearance.
Other Hair Loss Treatment Options
You may wonder how non-surgical hair loss treatment methods compare to hair transplantation. Alternatives to surgery like oral medication or topical solutions can be effective in some cases, but these treatments stop working once you discontinue their use. Hair restoration surgery is the only permanent hair loss treatment.
