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.

Check out this interesting rhinoplasty case where I performed a combined primary rhinoplasty and sliding genioplasty. Fixing the crooked or deviated nose is very challenging for all rhinoplasty surgeons and the goal is to achieve a straighter nose because a perfectly straight nose does not exist. On the frontal view, you can see a nose that is midline and with beautiful dorsal aesthetic lines. On the profile view, you can visual a nice nasal profile with a slight break at the tip. The sliding genioplasty complements the nose and improves the overall proportions and balance of the face. A chin implant would not be able to achieve this amount of chin augmentation or chin length.

It’s never too early to starting thinking about that summer body. This patient underwent a mommy makeover or a breast reduction/lift and tummy tuck. Pay close attention to the belly button, this patient had an umbilical hernia, which made the reconstruction of her belly button even harder. Most plastic surgeons take their time trying to make the belly button look as natural as possible since the appearance of the belly button can be an obvious sign that the patient had a tummy tuck.

A facial feminization case that highlights how subtle changes can have a major impact on the balance and proportions of the face. Do the post-operative images appear softer, less angular, more refined, and more heart-shaped rather than square-shaped? Can you tell what surgeries were performed? Hint: look closely at the forehead/orbital rims, nose, chin, jawline, and neck. Posted with permission.

Post-operative results on a patient in her 50’s who wanted improvement in the contour of her neck and jawline. She felt like her neck showed her age and she wanted to appear as she did in her late 30’s. The patient underwent a lower facelift and neck lift. In the post-operative photos, you can see a nice and natural neck contour and improvement in the jawline (jowls were treated). Pay attention to the volume redistribution, now her volume is in a more youthful position at the level of the cheek bones. Her appearance changed from sad and tired to looking as though she is ready to take on the world. Posted with permission.

6 month follow-up on a patient who underwent a breast reduction and lift for neck and back pain. For this surgery, we reduce the size of the breast and lift the breast and nipple to a more aesthetic position on the chest. These surgeries are some of the most rewarding surgeries plastic surgeons perform due to the impact they have on neck/back pain and improvement in mobility, exercise, and activities of daily living. The scars continue to fade with time and by 1 year, they blend in with the surrounding skin color. Posted with permission.

Early follow-up (3 months) on a patient with thicker skin, who underwent a primary rhinoplasty. The patient’s goals were to reduce the dorsal hump, refine and lift the tip, but not change her nose significantly. In the post-operative photos you can see a natural result with improvement in the dorsal profile and tip aesthetics. Over the next 8-12 months, the tip will continue to improve in terms of swelling, refinement, and detail. Posted with permission.

A combined primary rhinoplasty and otoplasty or ear pinning. For the rhinoplasty, the goals of the surgery were to improve the deviation, remove the dorsal hump, and refine the tip. The patient had deviation to the right which was straightened. The dorsal hump was removed to create a nice profile. For the tip, the tip was de-projected, de-rotated and refined. In other words, the tip was brought back closer to the face, rotated downwards, and it was made smaller. Happy for this patient and the improvements we were able to achieve for her.

This young patient wanted to feel more confident about the appearance of her ears and to be able to wear her hair up without feeling self-conscious about the asymmetries of her ears. The patient underwent a unilateral otoplasty of the left ear. The patient now proudly wears her hair up and is living her best life. Posted with permission.
