Hair Transplant Cost Los Angeles

In order to find out the exact cost for your hair transplant surgery, the first step is to do a hair restoration consultation with a qualified hair restoration specialist. It is always a good idea to do research and find a few doctors that specialize in the hair restoration only and go in for a consultation. Once you see a few qualified doctors, you can get a feel of the hair loss options that are available to you and also determine which options best fits your needs and concerns.

The type of harvesting, the donor availability and the degree of hair loss help establish the surgery session size and the actual price range. The hair loss specialist should determine the degree of your hair loss and also examine your donor hair to find the amount of quality donor hair that can be safely harvested. There are two different harvesting method from the donor zone of the scalp area. There is the strip method or the FUT and the punch method or the FUE. The type of harvesting method should be customized to your needs and concerns and all the pros and cons for each method should be discussed during the consultation. Most hair restoration practices charge an average price per graft for the harvested donor hair per session. That average price per graft is impacted by the type of procedure you choose to have, whether it is FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) Strip, or FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). All these factors are combined to determine the actual cost of surgical hair restoration. Since hair loss is progressive you may need additional procedures in the future. The cost for the second procedure is independent from the prior surgery and is based on the number of grafts and the technique you choose to do.

While hair restoration cost may be a driving factor in your decision, you have to make sure you are getting quality hair transplant for your money spent. At the hair restoration clinic of your choice you have to make sure you get the best quality hair transplant from a well recognized and experienced hair transplant specialist with the most competitive price. If the cost is the only factor in your decision, whatever you pay for a bad hair transplant is way too much.

Confessions of a hair transplant patient

posted Apr 10, 2019, 9:50 AM by Peyman Kalhor   [ updated Apr 10, 2019, 10:00 AM by Michael Meshkin ]

Confessions of a hair transplant patient

The best hair transplant centers are the ones that are honest and can provide you with information that can help you decide the best treatment options customized to your needs and concerns. It is always a great idea to do research and be educated before deciding how to move forward. It is also essential to hear about other or previous patients who had the procedure done to get an idea about their overall experience both with the hair transplant doctor and also with the entire staff.
Following is a detailed patient’s experience about his hair loss, his research, the process of picking a doctor and the treatment option and his expectations:

I recently had a hair transplant performed by Dr. Meshkin and his staff in their Los Angeles hair transplant center. I have been experiencing hair loss now for about 10 years. I have been very proactive in my hair loss by further preventing loss by taking meds like propecia, minoxidil, permixon, hair lazer, and various shampoos and conditioners. Although all these products are still great and I continue to still use them, I wanted to fill in the hair that I had already lost and to lower my hairline to begin with. So I did research online, asked a few of my friends that had it done and decided to set up a consultation with Dr. Meshkin for hair restoration.

From the start, I was impressed by how Dr. Meshkin stuck to the facts and did not try to sell me anything. I have had countless hair transplant consultations in Los Angeles and Orange County areas with laser hair therapists, hair product promotions, and hair transplant surgeons. During all those experiences with other hair transplant doctors, everyone tried to sell me something and buy into their product by promising me that my hair would come back and that I wouldn't lose anymore. In my experience, if something ever sounds way too good to be true it is. No one can promise you that you will not lose any more hair. Dr. Meshkin does not do this. He is well educated in hair loss and knows what he's talking about. He was confident that the hair that he would take for my donor area would remain in place. He could not promise that I would not lose any more hair that was already previously there. He explained to me the differences of using FUE and strip method. After discussing my options with him, I had decided to go with the strip method. Dr. Meshkin was upfront in his price and never tried to pressure me into buying anything. He left me with the choice of doing so.

There are also plenty of before and after pictures to look at, some of these people are celebrities who had hair transplant done using Dr Meshkin's innovative methods. You can't even tell they had hair transplant done because it looked so natural. I had heard of some celebrities that had it done before like Wayne Rooney, Tom Arnold, Bruce Jenner, Mel Gibson, Matthew McConaughey, Billy Bob Thornton, and the list goes on. I found out during the consultation that Dr. Meshkin has done so many celebrity hair transplant procedures through out his 25 years of dedicating his practice exclusively to hair restoration. Although he remains tight lipped about their identities, but a few have allowed him to show pictures. It must of been a life changing experience for them because from the pictures, they look so much better and years younger.

So now deciding to get my hair transplant I went to his office in Newport (he has consultation offices in Hollywood, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and Encino). It's a beautiful office with a beautiful staff. All of the RNs made sure that I could become most comfortable. You obviously need to take pain medication during the procedure, they do not however knock you the out. During the procedure I slept the entire time, remember that they did not knock me out. So if I can manage to sleep during the whole procedure I think that says enough and that it's pretty painless. Post and pre procedure instructions were very clear and I knew what I had to do. The entire staff made sure that I was OK before I left the office. I went home and remained comfortable.

Not only Dr Meshkin is a great surgeon, his entire staff were very helpful and caring. I had some questions the night before the surgery because I forgot to get my prescription filled for after hair transplant and I reached out to his patient coordinator about 10pm. She got back to me in that hour, and told me not to worry about anything and they could have the meds delivered to the office. Also staff during my hair transplant procedure were very nice and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and made me feel at ease. Dr Meshkin and his staff took real good care of me after the surgery and reviewed all the things that needed to be done for the next few days. Dr Meshkin himself even called the night of surgery to make sure every thing was ok and answer any questions that I had. there shows how much Dr Meshkin and his staff care about their patients.

I can honestly tell you that Dr. Meshkin never promised anything that he could not deliver. Any type of surgery is not going to be totally easy breezy. I can tell you that I'm happy I did this, that I would do it again and that I recommend you to do it as well.

Redesigning and lowering hair line using hair transplant surgery

posted Oct 18, 2018, 10:42 AM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Oct 18, 2018, 10:46 AM ]

Redesigning and lowering hair line using hair transplant surgery

Some Consider hair to be the most aesthetic part of the face. As such, receding or unusual hair line can dominate one's appearance, drawing attention from other features of the face. The hair line is where the scalp hair borders the forehead and frames the face, thereby bringing out the beauty and richness of one's beauty. When hairline is unusual or it is receding, one's facial features also recede into the background. In recent years hair restoration has become popular to restore the hair line to its original condition before hair loss or to reshape to desired shape for framing of the face.

A primary reason for seeking hair transplant surgery is to restore the appearance to the condition before hair loss had began. One of the more critical decisions for hair restoration is determining where to new hair line should be placed and the shape of hair line that best blends in with other facial features. These should be carefully discussed with the hair restoration surgery specialist. The specialist should recreate the hairline so it is natural and it is age appropriate. The physician should take into account age, facial contours, ethnicity, gender, and hair characteristics. The patient's desires and expectations should also be discussed.

Once these are considered hair transplant specialist should discuss the type of donor hair selected, size of the grafts, the number of grafts and graft distribution and the overall transplant technique to ensure a natural appearance. Widows peak, correct flaring, forelock creation, random pattern, natural orientation, using combination incision both agital and coronal are all important factors for establishing aesthetically pleasing hair line.

Before proceeding with a hair transplant procedure, one must be certain that they are fully informed and understand the physician's recommendations and that likewise the physician understands the wishes and concerns of the patient. The best results of hair restoration require complete physician/patient agreement. The specialist should have the patience to explain his recommendations of proper hairline based on future hair loss, patient's age, shape of the face, donor availability, and the texture and color of the hair to reach a satisfactory compromise. It may be necessary to consider future procedures to accommodate for progressive hair loss.

The most common asked questions about hair transplant procedure

posted Oct 8, 2018, 10:00 AM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Oct 8, 2018, 4:08 PM by Peyman Kalhor ]

The most common asked questions about hair transplant procedure

If you have decided on hair transplant procedure but still have have some questions or concerns, your hair restoration surgeon should be able to answer your questions during the consultation. The following is a list of the most commonly asked questions in regards to hair transplant procedures.

Q: Do hair transplants really work?

A: Yes. The hair for transplantation is removed from one part of the scalp (donor site) to the hairless part of the scalp (recipient site). Because the transferred tissue is not foreign, it is accepted. Transplanted hair retains its own texture, color, growth rate, and curl after transplantation and regrowth. It takes about 4 months to see some growth of new hair that will continue to grow 1 to 2 years after the procedure and last a lifetime or as long as the hair remains in the donor site.

Q: How has the procedure been accepted by patients?

A: With the latest advancements and improvements in hair restoration surgery, such as Microscopic Follicular Unit technique, patients who have pursued hair transplantation have been generally satisfied and accepting the procedure very well.

Q: Are hair transplants painful?

A: Generally, many people express little to no pain felt during the procedure. Some mild discomfort is typical as the anesthetic is injected, but once the area is numb there is virtually no pain. Should the numbing medicine wear off during the procedure, more anesthesia is injected to make the patient comfortable. Surgical hair restoration actually results in less operative discomfort than many other surgical procedures. The first night following the procedure, medication is prescribed to relieve any discomfort if necessary.

Q: What will it look like after the procedure?

A: There will be some small scabs 7-10 days following the procedure, which can be covered up by surrounding hair or the patient can wear a cap. If they cannot be hidden, they are usually small and do not attract that much attention. The scabs usually come off in about a week.

Q: Can I dye, color or perm my hair following the procedure?

A: Once the transplanted hair grows; since it is your own natural hair, you can color, dye, or perm. Furthermore, since your transplanted hair will grow at the same rate as the rest of your hair, you can cut and style it on regular basis.

Q: How long do I have to wait in between hair transplant sessions?

A: The scalp is usually recuperated to allow a second procedure by six months to a year following the previous surgery. The hair from the first procedure usually takes up to a year to grow in and reach full maturity. Therefore, if one is deliberating the need for an additional procedure, waiting until the year after the first procedure is generally recommended.

Q: Should I cut or color my hair before the hair transplant procedure?

A: Hair length entering a procedure should be sufficiently long in the donor area to allow hair from above the donor incision to drape down and cover the sutured area upon completion of the transplant. Hair should be cut for desired hair length of the client before coming for surgery but we recommend that you keep the length at least ½ inch long. Also if you need to color your hair, you should do it before since it is not recommended to get a hair cut or color for two to three weeks after the surgery.

Q: When can I go back to work after surgery?

A: One can typically return to light office work the next day. If your job requires strenuous activities or presence of scabs is problematic for you, then you should wait 5-7 days. Your physician should discuss this with you during your consultation.

Q: Are there limitations to exercising and when can I return to my exercise routine?

A: The first week following the procedure, the patient needs to limit his exercise activity to a very light routine, such as walking. You can return to your regular exercise program after a week.

Using Body and Beard hair As Donor For Hair Transplant

posted Sep 25, 2018, 9:22 AM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Sep 25, 2018, 9:23 AM ]

Using Body and Beard hair As Donor For Hair Transplant

FUE or Follicular Unit Excision is one of two primary methods of harvesting follicular units or grafts from the donor area. This method is an option for donor hair excision individually using different sized punches without having to do a linear incision. The advantage for this method over strip or linear extraction is there is less visible scarring in the donor area after the surgery. However if the client needs larger number of grafts to be transplanted, the donor may be limited for harvesting. In the recent years beard hair and body hair has been used as an option for clients with limited scalp donor hair.

If one is considering body hair for scalp hair transplant, donor hair from the body can be separated into two categories: beard hair and the rest of the body. Beard hair is rarely in the resting phase whereas other parts of the body are usually in the telogen phase. Beard hairs usually grow as single hair units, but on rare occasions a multiple hair groups may be noted. Only those with a thick beard will have multiple two hair groups. Beard hairs have a rapid rate of growth, and they last for a longer duration than other body hairs. In general beard hair transplants are far more consistent and will produce a yield typically between 60% and 100%.

Other forms of body hair are usually shorter in length and grow at a slower rate than scalp hair, typically not much longer than 3 to 6 cm in length. The hairs are often curly, but not nearly as curly as most beard hairs. Some forms of body hair grow even shorter such as the hair on your arms, the hair on the tops of the toes and eyebrows. These body hairs are often finer in appearance, though sometimes they are just as coarse as head hair. Even when the source of body hair is coarse, the hair will not grow as coarse on top of the head. The hair may produce a cosmetically insignificant result as compared to head hair and beard hair.

In general, 1 out of 4 individuals who undergo a non-beard body hair transplant get a cosmetically improved result. Failures include yields of zero %, very fine hair and sparse growth. Even though beard hair transplants produce good cosmetic coverage, some patients do not like the coarse, curly nature of the hair. This contrast in appearance can be quite striking when the scalp hair is fine and straight and beard hair is coarse and curly. In addition there are no studies to support growth of hair and its permanency in long term.

Dr Meshkin is honored to be recognized as a designated long standing member of ISHRS by his peers and also be certified diplomat by ABHRS for his knowledge and skill as a specialized hair restoration surgeon. He performs FUE hair transplant and FUT hair restoration in Irvine and Newport Beach offices. Dr. Meshkin will examine and test the donor area at the time of consultation to see if the patient is a good candidate for FUE scalp or body hair transplant procedure. If this is a good choice for the patient, Dr. Meshkin will review all the advantages and disadvantages so a client can make an educated decision.

Some things to consider before deciding on hair transplant surgery

posted Aug 27, 2018, 10:20 AM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Aug 27, 2018, 10:21 AM ]

Some things to consider before deciding on hair transplant surgery

If you have started to lose hair and looking for different treatment options, hair transplant surgery may be a viable option. But before deciding on hair transplant surgery, there are some things to consider that are very important.

1. How to choose a Qualified hair transplant surgeon.
The first step is to find a hair restoration surgeon with experience and get an evaluation to find the cause and different treatment options that may be a benefit to you. The qualified surgeon should show photos as evidence of previous work done and also any articles or publications to ensure the credibility.

2. The Cost For Hair Transplant Surgery
A hair transplant cost typically depends on the experience of the hair restoration physician and the location of the clinic. A typical procedure in United states may range from $5000 to $15,000, depending on the number of grafts and the technique used to harvest the grafts. To help you plan financially, many clinics may have different seasonal discounts, student and traveling discounts and also offer financing.

3. What is the cause of the hair loss?
One of the most distressing forms of hair loss is Hereditary Androgenic Alopecia, also known as male pattern hair loss (MPHL). The symptoms of this genetically predetermined disorder include physical changes in the hair, including loss of normal vigor and elasticity. Eventually, the hair can become thin and brittle and begin to fall out. In a genetically prone man, the presence of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is necessary for this problem to occur.

4. Is hair loss progressive and do I need additional procedures in the future?
Genetic hair loss is progressive so even if decide on hair transplant to gain the hair back, you may need additional procedures in the future. The hair loss specialist may decide to add some medical hair treatment option to stop or decrease the progression of hair loss.

5. When is a good time to consider hair transplant surgery?
It is important for the hair transplant specialist to find out if the hair loss is temporary or it is permanent hair loss. Should hair loss persist and appear to be permanent, it will lead to more advanced hair loss which can be treated by hair transplant.

6. What closure technique FUE or FUT is best for you?
In general there are two harvesting techniques for extracting hair from donor area. FUE or follicular unit excision involves removing hair individually using different sized punches without having to do a linear incision. FUT or the strip method, is excision of hair in a strip with a linear incision and separating the grafts into smaller follicular units under the microscope. The advantage and disadvantages for each method should be discussed with hair restoration specialist to find which is best for the client.

7. What is the post op care involved after hair transplant surgery?
Once hair transplant procedure is completed there are some precautions that need to be taken for the first week for shampooing and exercise by the patient to ensure that the results are optimal. Each clinic has their own post op routine that needs to be followed to make sure that the grafts are healed properly. Usually after 10 days the patient can return to their normal routine and activities.

posted Aug 13, 2018, 9:33 AM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Aug 13, 2018, 9:40 AM ]

Uncommon Causes of Hair loss

Hair loss can be extremely difficult for people of all ages. Although the most common cause of hair loss is genetic alopecia, there are many other reasons one can experience hair loss. In order to find out what treatment options are best for the patient, it is recommended to be examined by a qualified hair restorations specialist to find the cause for the hair loss first. Once the cause for the hair loss is established, the proper hair treatment can be given.

  • Alopecia Areata- the exact cause for this is unknown, but it could be related to certain autoimmune diseases. In this type of hair loss, the anagen hair prematurely enters into the telegen phase. Hair loss appears in multi round patches with defined borders. it could progress into Alopecia Totalis, which is the total loss of hair from the scalp and Alopecia Universalis which could affect the entire body hair loss. 
  • Endocrine Disorders-- Such as hypo and hyperthyroidism, hypopituitarism, and diabetes can cause hair loss and should be treated by an endocrinologist. Underlying cause should be diagnosed and treated.
  • Nutritional Deficiencies-- Such as iron and protein deficiency caused by mal nutrition, crash diets and anorexia nervosa can cause hair loss. Proper nutrition and diet should be discussed by a nutrition specialist.
  • Various Medications-- Some medications are known to cause hair loss these include anti cancer medication. the side effects of each medication should be discussed with the patient by treating physician.
  • Chemical Products--chemicals used for hair such as straightener, relaxer, and perm can cause hair loss.
  • Traction Alopecia--This is hair loss caused by braiding, tight pony tails, hot combing, excessive blow drying, tight rollers, and hair extensions. If you are experiencing hair loss when starting any of these, you need to stop right away or the hair loss will become permanent.
  • Trauma--Such as burns, accidents, and trauma to the scalp can cause hair loss.

What is the proper age to do hair transplant surgery?

posted Jul 23, 2018, 11:10 AM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Jul 23, 2018, 11:10 AM ]

What is the proper age to do hair transplant surgery?

Androgenic alopecia is the most common cause of hair loss and it is common fear amongst both men and women with family history of hair loss. In some cases the process of hair loss starts at a very young age. In those cases, many clients get anxious and seek hair transplant surgery as an first option to treat their hair loss. Seeking advice from a hair transplant specialist or a hair restoration physician is recommended. The hair restoration doctor will diagnose the cause of hair loss and make sure the pattern is set before even considering hair transplant surgery.

A skilled hair loss specialist should review your family history, age, degree of hair loss, goals and concerns and offer the treatment that is the most suitable for the needs of the patient and give the optimal result. Hair on the scalp that is genetically susceptible to androgenic alopecia starts to shrink until it eventually disappears. The hairs on the sides and the back of the head is usually genetically permanent hair which is destined to remain for the lifetime. It is important for the hair transplant specialist to find out if the hair loss is temporary or it is permanent hair loss. For starters, you need to not wait for evidence of substantial permanent hair loss. Even if one has predetermined genes that will cause loss of hair eventually, there still are several steps that one can take to slow down this process . Should hair loss persist and appear to be permanent, it will lead to more advanced hair loss which can be treated by hair transplant.

Consultation with a hair restoration specialist is helpful to find out not only the cause of hair loss, but also if hair transplant should be considered in addition to medical hair treatment. If a patient is very young most doctors wait to do hair transplant, but may start the medical hair treatment options to slow down the hair loss until the pattern of hair loss is more established at an older age. Although there is no set optimal age, most hair transplant doctors recommend to wait until the patient is at least 22 years with established hair loss, in good health and good quality donor hair for hair restoration surgery.
