Male Hair Transplant
Are You Thinning?

 

Male Hair Transplant Chicago

Hair transplant surgery is a procedure that restores hair to areas of the scalp that are thinning or bald. While there are many techniques used by plastic surgeons to transplant hair, the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago uses NeoGraft, an innovative handheld device that harvests hair grafts individually from donor sites and transplants them to balding or thinning areas.

The procedure for hair transplant using NeoGraft is called follicular unit extraction, or FUE for short. It is minimally invasive, there is little to no discomfort during the procedure, and the results are natural-looking. There are no scars or skin grafts necessary using the NeoGraft.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR HAIR TRANSPLANT SURGERY?

Baldness or thinning hair can happen to anyone, male or female, at any age. Regardless of gender, bald patches can negatively affect your self-esteem and confidence. If you have experienced hair loss and believe you may be a candidate for hair transplant surgery, schedule a consultation with the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago.

Ideal candidates for hair transplant surgery should have donor sites from which to extract transplant hair, typically on the sides or back of the scalp.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR CONSULTATION

When you schedule a consultation with the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago, you will meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon who will discuss your aesthetic goals with you and perform an evaluation to see if you are a good candidate for hair transplant surgery using NeoGraft. Your plastic surgeon will review your options and recommend the best course of treatment for you.

HOW HAIR TRANSPLANT SURGERY IS PERFORMED

There are several methods that plastic surgeons may use to perform hair transplant surgery, some of which involve scalp reduction, tissue expansion, or taking skin grafts. The Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago uses the NeoGraft FUE technique, which transplants hair follicles from donor sites one at a time into the affected area of the scalp.

First, a local anesthetic is administered to ensure comfort during the procedure. Using a thin, hollow needle, individual hair follicles are harvested from donor areas (like the back or sides of the scalp) and transplanted into the bald or thinning areas. Depending on the extent of the hair loss, the procedure can take anywhere from three to eight hours.

The results of a hair transplant using NeoGraft are immediately apparent. Since the hair comes from your own donor sites, results are natural-looking and the hairline remains intact. In some cases, repeat grafting sessions may be required in order to achieve the desired hair density.

RECOVERY AFTER HAIR TRANSPLANT SURGERY

Some swelling and bruising is typical after hair transplant surgery and usually fades within a week. There is no recovery period after a NeoGraft FUE procedure; patients can return to their normal level of activity.

Between nine months and one year after the hair transplant is performed, you should see visible growth in the transplanted hair.

POTENTIAL RISKS OF HAIR TRANSPLANT SURGERY

In any transplant procedure, there is always the potential risk that the newly grafted hair follicles will not take. Though it is infrequent, the possibility of additional hair transplant surgery exists.

WHAT DOES A HAIR TRANSPLANT COST?

The cost of hair transplant surgery will vary widely depending on your geographic location, the technique used, your plastic surgeon, and the extent of the transplant. You should speak with your plastic surgeon during your consultation about all associated costs before making the decision to undergo hair transplant surgery.

A 1 year follow-up on a patient who wanted a rhinoplasty to remove the dorsal hump and improve the aesthetics of her tip. In this case the dorsal hump was removed, the nose made straighter, the tip refined, and the tip rotated and projected more. Her new nose fits her face without overtly changing the ethnic features of her face. Posted with permission.

Male patient in his late 60’s who was able to turn back the clock after undergoing a #facelift, #neck lift, #blepharoplasty, and #fattransfer. Pay close attention to the “bags” underneath the eyes, the jawline, and neck. The scars have healed nicely and are inconspicuous even with short hair. In the post-operative photos, the patient has maintained his natural facial features and anatomy, but just looks like a more youthful version of himself. Posted with permission.

#Primaryrhinoplasty to fix the dorsal hump, droopy tip, and crooked nose. In the post-operative photos, the patient has a nice dorsal profile on side view, the tip has been lifted, and the nose is straight. To evaluate how straight the nose is, look at the dorsal aesthetic lines on bird’s eye view and follow the two light reflexes along the dorsum. Posted with permission.

Relatively small surgeries can yield big changes. This patient wanted to improve the contour of her chin and the overall profile of her face. The patient’s lower 1/3 of the face and chin were short and set back. Additionally, the patient had asymmetries of the chin and jawline that she wanted improved. The patient underwent a #slidinggenioplasty to achieve these goals where the chin was cut and mobilized forward and downward. In the post-operative photos, you can see a more aesthetic and balanced facial profile. The advantages of a #genioplasty over a #chinimplant are that the chin can be moved in numerous planes, the advancement can be more significant, and asymmetries can be addressed.

This patient had a bilateral constricted ear deformity where the top portion of the ear folds over the rest of the ear. In this deformity, the ear appears shorter in height and there are abnormalities of the outer and inner folds of the ear. In the postoperative photos you can visualize the ear is longer in height, the helical rim or outer portion of the ear is lifted up and the antihelical fold or inner portion of the ear is more defined.
