Hair transplant is an amazing way to restore your hairline, fill in bald spots and even create a new hairline. The patient first needs a full evaluation with Dr. Hazen to diagnose the cause of the hair loss and determine if a hair transplant is the correct treatment. There are many treatments that work for hair restoration, and sometimes oral or topical medication, injections of PRP or steroids are the correct choice for maximal benefit.
Dr. Hazen uses a state-or-the-art Follicular Unit Extraction and Transfer of single hair follicles using the world-renowned NEO-Graft Technology together with the best hair technicians in the world! The idea is taking your own hair from where you have extra (the back of the head) and bringing those follicle units to where you are losing hair. The effect is natural, scarless and the cool thing is the transferred hairs will never shed!
The process takes place in the office under local, requires that you cut the back of the hair very short. The process can take up to 8 hours but typically is 5. Recovery is about 5 days, though most patients feel totally fine after 2 days.
This procedure is great for male pattern baldness, thinning hair, and transmasculine patients who lose hair due to taking testosterone.
