Finding the right doctor is not always easy, and when it comes to choosing one to perform your hair transplant, you want the very best. Hair loss is a condition that impacts both men and women and it can have a number of different causes. Although hereditary causes of baldness, commonly called male pattern baldness, are usually associated with men, they can also affect women. Our talented hair transplant doctor in Oklahoma treats male and female patients alike.
What is Hair Transplant Surgery?
Hair transplants are more common than you might think. Many people have benefited from a hair transplant, which is designed to restore the look of full, healthy hair. A good hair transplant is barely perceptible. Whatever an individual’s cause of hair loss is — hereditary, hormonal, or due to a medical condition — a good hair transplant accomplishes the goal of restoring the look of a normal, youthful hairline.
The techniques used have been carefully honed over time. The two major techniques involve taking hair from parts of the scalp where healthy hair is still growing and transplanting them. The two main techniques of hair transplant surgery are:
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
A special tool removes individual follicles from the donor site, and these follicles are then inserted into the recipient site in such a way as to resemble a normal hairline
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
This type of surgery, involving removing a strip of skin with multiple follicles instead of removing follicles individually, is another technique.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Whatever your reasons for undergoing a hair transplant are, it is important to make sure you are a good candidate. Our doctor knows that procedures like this are the most successful when there is a good match between the procedure and the person getting it. Although there are many factors that influence who is a good candidate, some more significant ones are:
- Availability of donor areas for the hair transplant
- Hair texture, color, and other features of the hair itself
- Cause of the hair loss
