What causes hair loss?

Thinning hair, hair loss, and baldness can be caused by a variety of issues. In some cases, hair loss is sudden and temporary, while other patients struggle with early, unexpected, and severe hair loss. Most often, thinning hair or hair loss is the result of genetics or heredity, though that’s not the only potential cause of hair loss. Some of the most common reasons why you may notice your hair starting to thin or fall out include:

  • Genetics
  • Stress
  • Underlying condition
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Post-pregnancy hormone fluctuation
  • Age
  • Certain hair products
  • Overstyling

Depending on the cause, nature, and severity of a patient’s hair loss, he or she may be a candidate for NeoGraft FUE hair transplant in Orange County, CA.

What is FUE hair restoration?

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a revolutionary technique used in hair restoration procedures that helps patients achieve more reliable, natural-looking, and long-lasting hair growth. During FUE hair transplant in Newport Beach, Dr. Kelishadi utilizes advanced NeoGraft technology, which allows individual hair follicles to be extracted and transplanted. Not only does this let Dr. Kelishadi select healthy, viable hair follicles and distribute them in strategic, natural-looking growth patterns, but it also obviates the need for scalpel incisions, meaning patients will not have the visible, linear scar that is often associated with traditional hair transplant methods.

Will my new hair growth look natural after FUE hair transplant?

If you’re like many people, the first thing that comes to mind with hair transplant surgery is hair plugs, which are notorious for looking unnatural and unattractive. When performed properly by a highly skilled surgeon, NeoGraft hair restoration can provide striking, natural-looking results that will last a lifetime. During your FUE hair transplant in Orange County, the scalp will be numbed using a local anesthetic. Dr. Kelishadi will then utilize the NeoGraft handpiece to individually extract healthy, uniform hair follicles from an area of dense growth. The follicles will then be prepared in groups of 1, 2, 3, or 4 and meticulously transplanted to areas of thinning hair or hair loss. Dr. Kelishadi will carefully distribute FUE hair follicle grafts to mimic the natural growth patterns and hairline of the patient for the most natural-looking result possible.

After about 4 – 6 months, patients will begin to notice new hair growth, which will continue to fill in over the next several months. By the one-year mark, the majority of patients report full, thick, natural-looking hair growth in areas that were previously thin or balding. Because Dr. Kelishadi selects hair follicles for FUE transplant that are least susceptible to natural hair loss, most patients can expect their hair restoration results to be long-lasting.
