History Of Hair Restoration Surgery Transformation And Latest Developments

Hair transplantation has gone through major transformation over the past years. The earliest reported hair transplant was reported in the late 1800s, and since then hair restoration has transformed into one of the most sought after cosmetic surgical procedures. Over the years more sophisticated methods has emerged and in the 1980s and 1990s the procedures allowed for more number of grafts to be transplanted at one time which lead to mega-sessions and follicular unit hair transplants of today.

Today's mega-sessions of Follicular Units involves high power microscopes which allow for thousands of follicular units of different sizes to be transplanted at one session, transforming hair restoration surgery into an art. patients receiving hair transplants now enjoy exceptionally natural results if their procedure is done by a qualified and experienced hair restoration surgeon.

Hair transplants of today have also been developed both in the harvesting techniques and placements of grafts into the scalp area. With FUT and FUE hair transplant harvesting techniques, patients can enjoy harvesting of thousands of units at one session, without worrying about huge scars. These harvesting methods if done by a specialized hair restoration surgeon can have leave very minimal scarring that can hardly be detected.

The recipient area preparation and placement of grafts has also gone though a transformation. Most qualified hair restoration surgeons use customized needles to make the incisions following the patients own orientation and direction of native hair. The different zones are mapped out for distribution of one, two and three hair units. Each unit is placed according to the size and orientation of hair. With this method a more dense packed hairline can be achieved using very small customized needles to make thousands of one and two hair units in the front. As the doctor starts to make the units in the mid-scalp areas more larger units are used to get more density. With precise incisions and mapping of the zones, patient can have great density as well as natural results.

What to Expect On Day of Hair Transplant and After Care

Holiday Stress and Hair Loss

Hair transplantation has become very popular within the last few years. The transformation from the old plugs to the new modern hair restoration procedures has made it safe, and relatively minor surgical procedure. Hair transplant is an outpatient procedure which is usually performed under local anesthesia while the patient is watching T.V, listening to music or sleeping. If the procedure is done by an experienced hair restoration physician, there will be minimal discomfort and rarely any complications.

On the day of the surgery, the doctor will spend time reviewing the procedure and addressing any concerns or questions. After all the necessary measurements are taken, Dr. Meshkin will evaluate the hair quality and quantity for the transplantation. It is critical to plan the harvesting of the grafts from the donor area and the design of the recipient area. Following these standard procedures, he will map out the recipient area and the distribution and then will proceed with the surgery.

Hair restoration surgery first involves the removal or harvesting the hair from the donor area. Following the removal of the donor hair, the harvested hair is dissected into 1-3 hair units under high powered microscopes. As the units are being prepared, he will make small incisions using customized needles into the recipient area following the orientation and direction of ones the native hair. The possibility of future hair loss has to be considered when making the incisions. The recipient area incisions should be made following clients own hair directions and hair orientation for a natural looking hair. Once the incisions are made, follicular units are implanted into the recipient areas. At the end of the procedure, a light dressing may be applied which can be removed the next day.

Following the procedure, one can expect to have small crusts formed on the grafted area. A post operative cleaning regiment is given to the client to help dissolve the scabs. These crusts will flake off by 7-10 days after the surgery. The client can usually return to normal activity in about two weeks. The transplanted hair growing from the scalp may initially shed, however the roots will remain and new hair will start to grow in after three months to four months, it may take up to a year for all the hair to grow in. During this waiting period, Dr. Meshkin follows up with his patients regularly.

Holiday Stress and Hair Loss

posted Nov 18, 2019, 9:01 AM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Nov 18, 2019, 9:02 AM ]

Holiday Stress and Hair Loss

There are many factores that can cause hair loss. The most common is hereditary, but emotional stress can also contribute to temporary or permanent hair loss. With the stress of holiday season, many may notice their hair falling off. It is important to know that hair loss caused by stress is usually temporary, but if the stress continues it may lead to permanent hair loss.

Emotional and psychological impact on hair loss has been clearly studied in the past. Some problems associated with hair loss includes anxiety, and usually around holiday season, the stress level increases. While this season is meant to bring feelings of love and cheer, it’s also the start of holiday stress for many people. In fact, according to recent polls many find the holiday season to be ‘somewhat’ or ‘very’ stressful. Too much stress can effect one both mentally and physically. Too many activities, shopping, and holiday events even if they are fun activities, can culminate in too much holiday stress and leave us feeling frazzled, rather than fulfilled.

The great thing about holiday stress is that it’s predictable. Unlike many other types of negative stress we encounter in life, we know when holiday stress will begin and end, and we can make plans to reduce the amount of stress we experience and the negative impact it has on us. Usually the hair loss that is associated with holiday season can be temporary, therefore the hair will grow back once is stress is relieved. However, there are some cases where the temporary hair loss can lead to permanent hair loss.

In case of permanent hair loss caused by stress, it is best to see hair restoration specialist to get evaluated and find out about hair loss treatment options. The physician should conduct diagnostic examinations and tests to establish the cause for hair loss first and its temporary or permanent condition and discuss the best treatment options. Hair restoration specialist should take great care to design a treatment program that will create the optimal results for the patient. while hair transplant can restore the hair loss, in many cases hair loss doctor may recommend medical hair treatment initially. it is important to have realistic expectations about the results of medical hair treatment options without treating the cause of stress itself. If medical hair treatment does not produce satisfactory results and hair loss continues, then hair transplant can be an option. The hair restoration surgeon should take time to discuss all the patient's options and fully answer all questions.

Winter hair Tips: Dos and Don'ts

Winter hair Tips: Dos and Don'ts

With the winter season and cold weather just around the corner, many people are experiencing dry and itchy scalp. If you naturally have dry scalp and hair, winter is when things get worse for most people. Usually winter months can be very harsh on the skin and scalp. In some cases it gets to a point where you find your self constantly scratching your head and that becomes very irritating. In some case it may be temporary and may be seasonal, but in some cases it may lead to permanent hair loss.

The harsh weather can take a toll on your hair and leave it very dry and brittle. This may cause hair loss that could be temporary if it is taken care correctly. However if your scalp continues to be irritated from dryness, your hair may start to fall of and cause a more permanent hair loss. To combat the dry winter scalp and hair, and want to get rid of itchiness and flaking the easiest way is to hydrate your scalp and your hair.

This winter hair care advice will have your scalp healthy and moisturized in no time at all.

1. Protect your hair from dry and cold weather by using a hat. This will keep the moisture on your scalp and hair and keep it from falling off.

2. Combat the dry scalp by using leave-in conditioner. This is a great way to keep the scalp moist and decrease irritation and itching caused by dry scalp.

3. Add moisture to your hair by using essential hair oils. The hair shaft along with the scalp gets dry in the cold weather and therefore become very brittle. It is a good idea to use hair oil on the hair after shower to keep the moisture in. This will protect the hair from getting brittle and falling off.

4. Artificial heater and wind can also contribute to dry hair and scalp. To keep the moisture, use a humidifier in the room. The humidifier adds moisture to the air and therefore keep the hair moist. This will keep the hair from drying out and decrease the chances of hair loss.

5. You may want to swap the shampoo you use in the winter for one that is more moisturizing and nourishing. If dandruff is an issue in cooler weather, look for a shampoo with a dandruff-fighting ingredient. You might want to cut back on the number of times you shampoo your hair in the winter, if you find that it’s becoming very dry.

Are Hair Vitamins "Miracle Cures" For Hair Loss?

posted Oct 14, 2019, 9:05 AM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Oct 14, 2019, 9:13 AM ]

Are Hair Vitamins "Miracle Cures" For Hair Loss?

There are many undocumented claims in the hair product industry for Miracle Cures for hair loss. Lately there are companies or self proclaimed hair gurus on social media platforms that circulate the perception that Vitamins can cure or reverse the hair loss and bring your lost hair back. In order to find out the truth behind these claims one must approach them with skepticism and product reliability. To find out if any products is helpful in hair growth, first one has to know the likely causes of hair loss and the best treatment options.

Although nutritional deficiency can cause hair loss, the main reason for hair loss is Genetic Androgenic Alopecia. This condition is hereditary and progressive with age, furthermore it can cause hair loss in both men and women. The hair loss in this conditions has a particular pattern and can be slowed down using some FDA approved hair products such as Propecia and Minoxidil. However the most effective way to gain the hair back is through hair transplant. In most cases a combination of hair restoration through surgical and medical hair treatment is recommended for best overall result in hereditary Androgenetic Alopecia.

Crash diets and caloric deprivation of less than 1000 calories per day or sudden weight loss of more than 20 pounds have been reported to be associated with hair loss. Nutritional factors that are necessary for hair growth are protein, fatty acids, zinc, Iron, biotin, Magnesium, Vitamins A, C, E and B complex. Like any other organ in the body hair needs food to grow, so it is important to know the quality and quantity of various nutrients necessary for healthier hair. If nutrition is a factor in hair loss a good balanced diet is the best way to correct it. The second choice would be to have a vitamin supplement that does provide all the missing nutrients that could cause hair loss. However Vitamins are not a miracle cure and even though it can help, an overall treatment regiment should be discussed with a qualified hair restoration specialist. It is best to discuss weight loss program with a specialist, and avoid diets that can cause or contribute hair loss. Before deciding on self proclaimed hair vitamin or any hair product miracle cures, be sure to get an evaluation to find the cause for the hair loss and best treatment options from a qualified hair restoration clinic.

It is important to research these products and vitamins thoroughly before using them. You can either blindly accept the claims made by social media influencers and purchase them or you can approach them with some skepticism and do your due diligent research. It is always good to look for documented proof on products such as FDA approval to discern whether the product has, in fact, stimulated hair growth in a majority of persons using it in a safe manner with minimal side effects.

Latest News On A Cure For Hair Loss

posted Sep 24, 2019, 9:03 AM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Sep 24, 2019, 9:05 AM ]

Latest News On A Cure For Hair Loss

There are many different hair treatment option both surgical and non surgical for hair loss, however cure for hair loss has been very challenging. Of all the parts of your body, hair seems to be the simplest to multiply or treat, however that is not true. Hair by nature is more complex than many researchers initially presumed because each individual hair follicle has its own cycle of growth. Human scalp contains more around 100,000 hair follicles and its life span depends on where on the cycle they fall. Over time the follicles miniaturize and move from growth stage to dormant stage of their cycle. In individuals with hair loss, this cycle is disrupted and the hair that is in dormant state does not grow back.

To produce a single strand of hair, the body relies on thousands of stem cells called dermal papillae at the base of each hair follicle. Scientists have found that as dermal papillae disappear over time, follicles miniaturize and become dormant and so if that is the case the answer to curing hair loss may fall in generating new hair using stem cell therapy. Using cells from a person's own skin or blood to grow new hair follicle is under experiments. Many research scientists are trying to create a harm farm using patients' own stem cells to clone or regrow hair. However because of the complex nature of hair follicles these are still under experimental stage.

Since stem cell therapy and cloning is still not perfected, at this time it is best to find the best alternative treatment options. It is a good idea to do a consultation with a hair restoration specialist before starting any treatments to find out the best options for you. A hair transplant or hair loss specialist will do an evaluation to find the cause for the hair loss, the degree of hair loss and hair characteristics. Once the cause for the hair loss is established, then the best surgical or non surgical treatment options are recommended. If an individual chooses to try nonsurgical options first, there are certain medical or non medical hair treatments and products that works best. Propecia and Minoxidil are the two FDA approved hair loss products that are proven to help hair loss. There is also PRP and ACell injections that are also work well to prevent and regrow some hair. However the best option to regrow hair is hair restoration using hair transplant.

In many cases there is high rate of success with hair transplantation for women and men's hair loss and the patients are satisfied with the results. Since hair loss is progressive, in some cases a combination of surgical and medical hair treatment is recommended. These options should be discussed between hair restoration specialist and the patient at the initial consultation appointment. Before proceeding with hair restoration procedure, you must be certain that you are fully informed and understand the physicians' recommendations. If hair restoration surgery is beneficial, it is also important that all the relevant questions have been addressed in regards to the procedure, likely outcome and a realistic expectation of the results discussed.

is hair loss progressive?

posted Sep 13, 2019, 9:05 AM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Sep 13, 2019, 9:13 AM ]

Is hair loss progressive?

Hair growth undergoes a cyclic process, during this cycle the loss of up to 100 strands a day is within a normal range. They will grow through the cycle and eventually grow back. However hair loss is usually genetic in nature and with this type of hair loss, hair follicles which are sensitive to DHT male hormone begin to shrink as men age and will eventually never grow back. This hair loss in men averages 15% between 18-29, increases to 50% by the age of 50 and the rate eventually decreases to 10% for each decade after age of 50. This is just the average progression of genetic predisposed hair loss and may differ from one individual to another.

Up until recent years there had not been a precise technology to measure and predict the exact amount of future hair loss. However in the last few years, there has been development in devises and tests that can help evaluate or predict hair loss. These tests and devises assist with predicting genetic predisposition and measure progression of hair loss as clients age.

There are variety of test available to predict hair loss. Some the tests include the following:

Hair Pull Test

This test will determine degree and stage of hair loss. the test involves taking a section f eight to ten hairs from various parts of the head that are gently grasped by the doctor and pulled outward to the end of the hair, with loss of one or two hairs falling within the normal range. If more than two is falling signs of early shedding may be present. the hairs can also be examined under the microscope for any damage and irregularities. This test has significance in patients with Alpecia Areata as a positive hair pull suggests that hair loss may affect the entire scalp.

Hair Density Test

It is important to note the width difference of hair loss from various part s of the scalp. This test can be performed on the patient's first doctor's visit with a hand help instrument and involves parting hair from different areas and measuring the various widths.

Over the past few years researchers began to understand the central role played by stem cells in the follicle cycling. Every hair follicle contains a permanent reservoir of multi potent stem cells which have the capacity in growth. The eventual understanding of this process of stem cells replenishment may contribute to molecular level treatments to revive hair follicles that have stopped producing mature hair.

Consultation with a hair transplant specialist is very helpful in finding out not only the cause of hair loss, but also the progression of your hair loss. Before proceeding with hair restoration procedure, you must be certain that you are fully informed and understand the physicians' recommendations. If you hair loss is progressive in nature a more comprehensive approach with a combination of hair transplant and medical hair treatment may be beneficial.

A qualified hair restoration surgeon uses a small punches of various sizes to isolate, and incise a follicular unit from the donor hair area in the back of the scalp. The follicular unit is removed with forceps from the scalp and placed into a stable solution until it is placed back into the recipient. Once the desired number of units that is removed by using the punches, the hair restoration surgeon starts to prepare and make the incisions into the recipient area where the hair loss has occurred.

The hair transplant doctor usually uses customized needles to make proper incisions into the thinning areas. Depending on the area of hair loss, one hair, two hair or three hair units are used to fill in the incisions. Follicular units will be placed according to their size using small forceps. Once all the follicular units are placed, the areas are cleaned and a light bandage is placed to cover the grafted and donor area.

There are many clinics that claim their method of FUE is the best or it is scar free. In truth, FUE utilizes punches. Some of these punches are taken out manually or using a machine. The names for these machines may differ but the overall method is the same. Before considering the Most Advanced FUE, find out if the clinic is legit and is not just giving the same method a different name. Ask questions about the experience of the doctor and staff, and make sure the medical technicians are not performing the actual surgery. A lot of the hair transplant clinics who are not truthful about their methods of harvesting usually have unlicensed technicians performing some, if not all, of the surgical procedure.

Will only method of harvesting effect the overall hairtransplant result?

In the recent years there has been discussions about overall results of hair transplants correlation to the harvesting techniques among experienced hair transplant surgeons. There is a faction that only prefers FUE or follicular unit excision and then there is another group that push for FUT or the strip techniques for harvesting making clients believe that harvesting will effect overall hair transplant result. Although bad harvesting from the donor area may effect the result, the overall result depends on the planning and distribution of the grafts in the recipient area.

These two harvesting techniques have been overly studied and experimented to find out the pros and cons for each. Over the past decade each technique has gone through a evolution of perfection and now doctors are more certain as to which is better for a client on individual basis. Those clients who are leaning towards FUE hair transplant there are advantages and disadvantages that needs to be discussed before the procedure is recommended. If the patient is a good candidate for FUT or the strip method, there are new techniques developed that could minimize the scarring and almost invisible to find after healing.

In recent years a more advanced procedure for closure of the wound was developed by hair transplant surgeons for harvesting the grafts. This method is called the Trichophytic closure, a superior and exclusive method in camouflaging scaring or removing the previous scars that were there from other hair restoration procedures. This methods is a very meticulous donor removing and closure technique. The lower edge of the incision is removed in such a manner that the hair grows through the incision making it very hard to see after it heals, even with a short hair cut. As a result, in most cases the trichophytic method allows hair transplant patients to wear short hairstyles without the fear of exposing a surgical scar.

With the modern hair transplant techniques, once the hair is harvested from the donor area, it is cut under the microscope into refined hair follicular units. The hair restoration specialist should then make incisions into the recipient areas using customized needles that would allow for lateral incisions and smaller units to be implanted following the direction and orientation of patients's own hair. The hair restoration specialist should take time and follow facial contours and make the incisions close enough for dense packing. Many of the units have double or triple follicular units naturally and should be placed in the recipient areas accordingly. The one and two hair units should be placed close to frontal hairline for natural look and the triple hair units in the mid-scalp to crown for density. The hair restoration specialist should pay close attention to size and number of grafts and plan out the distribution in advance. These factors will allow for the most natural and best hair transplantation results.
