If you are losing your hair, you may feel very self-conscious about your appearance. You may want to consider your cosmetic surgery options, as well as non-surgical options, to address your hair loss. Here is a look at some of your hair restoration options:
- Follicular Unit Extraction
In this surgery, your cosmetic surgeon will remove each individual hair follicle and the cells around it, then prepare it for transplantation. This option offers excellent results for people who want a permanent solution to hair loss. Follicular unit extraction provides results that look and feel natural, unlike hair transplant options of the past. In addition, it is minimally invasive. It is useful both for patients who only need a few hairs transplanted and for those who need more extensive coverage, so ask your doctor if this procedure is right for you.
You may be able to experience the hair restoration you want without cosmetic surgery. Medications can help stop hair loss, and some have been shown to help promote the regrowth of hair. These medications may be in the form of oral medications, such as finasteride, or in a topical form, like minoxidil.
- Laser Therapy
Laser hair loss treatments can help regrow hair by stimulating the follicles and promoting circulation to the hair follicles. Some people benefit from in-office treatments, while others can use at-home treatments, such as caps that direct laser energy directly at the scalp while you go about your daily activities. These at-home treatments can provide the same quality of treatment as office laser systems. Ask your cosmetic surgeon if at-home laser treatments are right for you.
