What Can I Expect From Hair Transplantation?
Since the first hair transplantation procedure ever performed decades ago, the technology and techniques have evolved to a point that good hair transplantation results, performed with the latest technology and by skilled physicians, should be undetectable.
Today, hair transplantation is a relatively simple and outpatient procedure. It takes a few hours to half a day to complete. Given your hair grows about ½ inch per month, you can expect to see some growth within a few months, and relatively full growth in a year*. Looking at the larger picture, a few months is nothing for a lifetime of hair!
The key to completely natural-looking hair restoration results is selecting the right physician. Many physicians can transplant hairs, but not all possess the important combination of experience, technical and artistic skills to yield the type of undetectable results you want. Even with today’s advanced hair transplant technologies, an inexperienced physician or one who doesn’t practice hair restoration exclusively could cause less than desirable results.
Bosley physicians practice hair restoration exclusively and have come from diverse, rewarding medical backgrounds and experience, some with decades in surgical, plastics and other related medical fields. In fact, all Bosley physicians have at least 10 years surgical experience and are trained extensively in the skill and artistry required to create perfect hair lines and natural looking results.
For over forty years, Bosley has performed more hair transplant procedures than any other medical group in the world. This experience is drawn upon when new Bosley physicians are trained to the high standards required by Bosley. Many physicians approach Bosley each year to become part of the Bosley medical team but only a select few are chosen.
Being the world’s most experienced hair restoration expert, Bosley utilizes the latest advancements and techniques for hair transplantation. The latest in such advancement, the follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique, is rising in popularity due to its minimally invasive nature. FUE procedures typically also require minimal downtime and recovery is quicker. Aside from FUE, the traditional follicular unit transplantation (FUT) technique is available. A patient’s hair loss classification and goals can determine that one technique is favored over the other. Both are proven techniques, so neither is inferior to the other. Both hair transplant techniques will have the same result, a perfectly natural look.
Deciding on which technique to use is part of a larger discussion between you and your Bosley physician, which will also include the availability of other FDA approved and technologically advanced hair loss treatments like the Bosley Theradome™ Laser Helmet or the Bosley Lasercomb Elite®.
