Can hair transplant be done multiple times

Can hair transplant be done multiple times

In recent years a lot of research has been done to find the cause for hair loss and its nature and characteristics. 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. as people age and hair loss continues a comprehensive approach including medical hair treatment or multiple surgeries may be necessary.

Once it is determined that hair loss is progressive, a hair loss specialist can recommend medical hair treatment options to slow down or prevent future hair loss. If one does not want to start any medical hair treatment, surgery may be an option. Harvesting of the hair is one of the important parts of the hair restoration procedure. The hair restoration specialist needs to determine donor hair availability in the donor zone in the back of the scalp and estimate the number of grafts available for harvesting.

There are two options for harvesting from the donor zone, one is FUE and another is FUSS harvesting techniques. FUSS technique is harvesting a strip of hair from the donor zone and them into 1-3 hair units. This technique may leave a thin line like a wrinkle after the donor area is healed. If a second surgery is required as the patient continues to lose native hair, hair can be harvested starting from the previous line. So multiple surgeries can be done without worrying about donor depletion. For FUE round punch instruments are used to extract one hair unit at a time from the donor zone. Multiple punches are necessary to extract hair and this usually leaves multiple round white scars in the donor zone. A second hair transplant requires making punches in between the old round punches which may result in depletion of the donor zone.

These techniques and possible future hair loss should be discussed in detail with a hair restoration specialist before committing to hair restoration surgery. In many cases, a hair restoration surgeon should choose the harvesting technique that best fits the concerns and also leaves enough donor hair for future use, if multiple procedures become necessary. In general multiple procedures are safe with FUSS technique, whereas with FUE multiple procedures may result in donor depletion of the donor safe zone. For younger patients with progressive male pattern hair loss, FUSS technique may be the best option to retain as much hair as possible for future use.

Non surgical options for young individuals with Male Pattern Hair Loss

In order to make an accurate assessment of the causes of hair loss in men, a comprehensive analysis should be done to find the cause and the best treatment options. If the hair loss is at the initial stages, then hair transplant surgery may not be beneficial. In these cases with initial stages of hair thinning where the pattern is still not established, medical hair treatment can be recommended. The patients should be evaluated and satisfied that all the relevant questions have been addressed regarding any hair treatment options, likely outcomes and the cost for each treatment. All the hair treatments should be customized to the needs and concerns of the patient and a comprehensive treatment option should be considered in younger clients. Before deciding on any hair loss treatment, a consultation with a hair loss specialist is essential to plan out the best treatment options.

Although there are no miracle cures for hair loss, there are some FDA approved hair products and medications that may help. These products and their effects should be discussed with hair restoration specialists before considering using them. Some of the FDA approved products include Finasteride, and Topical Minoxidil. Other Topical Medications are available such as Tretinoin, Diazoxide, Cyotcol, Progesterone, and topical Estrogen. These medications have been used in the past for the treatment of hair loss. There are also different shampoos, conditioner and vitamins such as Zinc, Biotin, B complex E, C and Iron that may help keep the overall condition of the hair healthy.

PRP therapy has gained popularity as a non surgical treatment option for men and women in the initial stages of hair loss. PRP is a concentration derived from clients' own blood, It has growth factors that stimulate hair growth when injected into the scalp. Usually the Doctor draws the patient's own blood and runs it through a machine to separate the platelets, and then injects the plasma cells into the thinning hair. ACell is a protein matrix that when injected into the scalp recruits the body’s own intrinsic growth factors and healing proteins over a period of several months. It is suggested that the combination of ACell and PRP provide a continuous supply of growth factors to the native hair follicles for several months.

Hair Transplant Surgery During Coronavirus Pandemic

Hair Transplant Surgery During Coronavirus Pandemic

Hair transplantation has become very popular within the last few years. In the last few months, many people are considering hair transplant surgery but they are afraid to do the procedure during the coronavirus. If all the precautions are taken at the hair transplant clinic, the hair restoration procedure is an outpatient procedure which is usually performed under local anesthesia and it has a very easy recovery. Many people are working remotely at home due to Coronavirus, which makes it a very good time to have any cosmetic procedure specially hair transplant to be performed. An experienced hair restoration physician and his staff should follow all the CDC guidelines and make sure the hair restoration is done in a safe environment. The recovery period is only a few days and does not require taking time off from work if one is working remotely from home.

At this time, hair restoration clinics offer both virtual and in person consultation as well as follow ups. For the safety of clients, masks and social distancing are mandatory during in person office visits. Once a patient decides on a hair restoration procedure, all precautions are taken to make the hair transplant procedure comfortable and safe. The procedure is done under IV sedation for the comfort of the patient with rarely any complications and the post op is very easy.

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, hair restoration surgeon will make small incisions using customized needles into the recipient area following the orientation and direction of one's 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 postoperative 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. If they are working at home, they can do their work starting the next day and it is not necessary to take time off from work. 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.

New Beard and Eyebrow Hair Transplant Procedures

posted Aug 31, 2020, 2:06 PM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Aug 31, 2020, 2:15 PM ]

New Beard and Eyebrow Hair Transplant Procedures

As the popularity of thick beard and eyebrow grows , so does the popularity of beard and eyebrow hair transplant. In the past few years there has been a surge in beard and eyebrow hair transplantation world wide. These are very specialized hair restoration procedures and it is very important that hair restoration specialists have experience in both harvesting and incisions into the recipient areas. Before the procedure all the pros and cons should be reviewed with the hair transplant surgeon and patient should have a clear understanding of what to expect. In the hands of an experienced hair restoration doctor, the results are impeccable and natural.

Transplantation is the only procedure used to restore beard hair. Beard surgery is a very specialized procedure. As is the case for eyebrows and eyelash, donor hair for transplantation is taken from the dense area in the donor zone in the back of the head. All grafts are single hairs and are meticulously placed into the beard and mustache. Hair transplant specialists should spend some time mapping out the areas to be transplanted and determine the direction and orientation of the hair. The direction and the orientation of the implanted hairs should follow the patient's own hair for the most natural result. To achieve that, customized needles are necessary to make the recipient sites. The use of single units allows for adherence to the beard hair orientation for natural results. The implanted hair goes through a cycle of growth and it usually starts to grow in 4 months and it may take up to a year for all the hair to grow in.

If a patient desires a thicker eyebrow, hair transplantation can be done to recreate an eyebrow that is thicker and follows a natural contour. The new eyebrow should be outlined before the procedure to conform to the natural symmetry of the patient's face. Donor hair for the transplant is taken from a site that furnishes finer rather than coarser hair; finer hair is a better "match" for eyebrow hair. Donor hair is transplanted as units of one to two hairs. Each graft is placed into an incision prepared for it. The use of single hair grafts permits meticulous adherence to the eyebrow contour for a natural appearance. As the transplanted hairs grow in their new position they may require occasional trimming as well as "training" with gel or wax.

For the eyelash procedure, fine hairs are placed in the thinning areas. The recovery takes one week, and the post op care instruction is given. Itching is a common and troublesome postoperative complication. If the patient gives in to temptation and scratches, there is risk for dislodging the hair grafts and initiating infection. Eyeglasses may be worn to deter scratching. Training of transplanted hairs into eyelash conformation is accomplished by use of lash oil and an eyelash curler.

Weather Changes and hair loss

posted Aug 4, 2020, 10:11 AM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Aug 4, 2020, 10:23 AM ]

Weather Changes and hair loss

There are many causes of hair loss and the most common is genetic. However there are other less common causes of hair loss one of which is weather changes. In general there are some hair loss related to cold or warm weather that is associated with seasonal changes. In addition to normal daily hair loss of 50 to 100 strands per day, it is natural and healthy to lose more hair in warm weather or to experience more hair growth during the winter. However, weather changes occasionally contribute to unusual excessive hair loss.

During fall and winter seasons with cold, dry weather hair loss could worsen due to dietary changes, stress, or other factors. Cold air combined with the drying effects of central heat can result in brittle ends and fragile strands that break easily. If your hair is already damaged, the drying effect will further cause it to fall off. In addition, the cold weather can affect the overall health of your scalp and make the hair more brittle. To make the hair less brittle, hair masks and natural hair treatments could help.

As oppose to cold weather hair loss, losing hair during warm weather is usually normal. In the same way that many animals shed, it is normal for the human body to regulate temperature with the loss of unneeded extra hair. For some people though, the heat and intense summer sun can cause additional dryness on the scalp just like in the winter time. In both cold and warm conditions, if the scalp or the hair shaft is dry, the hair becomes brittle and start to fall off.

In any case, If you are experiencing significant hair loss, it is a good idea to visit a hair restoration specialist to find out the cause for your hair loss and get the proper hair treatment option. Hair restoration doctor can evaluate your hair loss, make the diagnosis and offer treatment options that can be beneficial. In most cases if the hair loss is temporary and it is related to seasonal changes and the weather, it can be reversed. If the underlying condition that is causing increased hair loss is removed in some cases the hair will come back. In addition, a little change in daily routine can be helpful. By reducing blow drying and using chemical hair treatments to process the hair during the dry weather, you may reduce the chances of the hair loss. In addition, to make the hair less brittle, hair masks and natural hair oil treatments could help.

How Long does coronavirus stay on the hair and should we be concerned?

posted Jul 17, 2020, 9:58 AM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Jul 17, 2020, 10:12 AM ]

How Long does coronavirus stay on the hair and should we be concerned?

There are many clients who wonder about their hair and Coronavirus. Although there is no particular studies done to find the length of time the corona virus stays on the hair or if it affects hair loss at all, many are asking if they should be concerned about transmission of the virus from the hair to the respiratory tract.

There are studies done that show the new coronavirus may stay on cloth and on stainless steel and plastic for up to four days. The question becomes with hair having different physical structure, does it stay on the hair long enough for us to be concerned about transmission.

At this point there are no specific studies that show any connection between COVID19 and the human hair or even beard hair. There is the possibility that the virus could remain alive on your hair for a few hours or even a few days and could be transmitted by touching. If that is the case, the question becomes if the hair should be washed more often to reduce the possibility of transmission. In general in a healthy environment, washing your hair too often is not recommended since you lose the natural oil of the scalp and may cause hair breakage and hair loss. However, since there are no particular studies done with this new virus a common sense approach can be more practical.

The recommended approach is to follow all the safety guidelines by the CDC and stay aware of the environment. If a person is in a crowded area and feels more exposed, it is safe to wash hair more often. If someone is exposed to sneezing, or coughing directly into their hair, and if one strokes their hair with his or her contaminated hands or be in direct contact with someone who may have the virus, it is a very good idea to wash your hair as well as other parts of the body. In general one should try to avoid touching their face and hair with their hands, they should follow the safety guidelines, maintain the safe distance from others and wash their hair as needed, to reduce the chances of transmission.

Computer use and hair loss

Computer use and hair loss

Although there is no scientific proof of a cause-and-effect relationship between computer use and hair loss, medical experts have noticed a higher percentage of hair loss amongst IT employees with long periods of time exposed to electromagnetic radiation in electric appliances, such as the computer. Some experts suggest that exposure to radiation from a computer can cause hair loss amongst other things.

We’re surrounded by radiation—sunlight, electric light, heat, radio waves, power lines, and other forms of energy–not just from our medical and dental X-rays. Radiation comes from natural radioactivity in the environment, from minerals and the earth. Most of us are exposed to two kinds of radiation: ionizing (creates free radicals that can damage tissue) and electromagnetic. The former, which removes electrons from atoms, is more dangerous.

In recent years due to increased in exposure to radiation from increased computer use, many scientists have linked exposure to increased hair loss, headache, insomnia, declining memory, irregular menstruation, miscarriage, low sperm viability, fetal anomalies, and some cancers. Although the most common cause of hair loss is genetic, Some scientists suggest exposure to radiation and stress may instigate or facilitate the process of hair loss. To reduce chances of symptoms, a simple change in everyday routines to reduce the exposure is helpful.

At this time of work from home environment, many clients have complained about increased hair loss. One could suggest that stress and long work days in front of the computer can contribute to their hair loss problem. The EPA states that if one is concerned about symptoms such as hair loss then changing habits to limit exposure, length of time, and distance from a screen can help with reducing symptoms. Although we cannot escape radiation completely, making A choice to change habits and reduce computer use or taking frequent breaks could reduce possible symptoms. Even though at this time there is no solid scientific evidence between computer use and hair loss, one can reduce any possibilities by simply changing daily routines and daily use of computers.

At what age and what stage of hair loss is hair transplant a viable option

posted May 27, 2020, 3:11 PM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated May 27, 2020, 3:41 PM ]

At what age and what stage of hair loss is hair transplant a viable option

Currently in the USA, approximately 50 million men and women are affected by some type of 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. As hair loss progress, hair transplant may become an viable option as treatment option. There are many factors that considered before jumping from medical hair treatment to hair transplantation.

Some of the less common causes of hair loss that are reversible with medical hair treatment, including: thyroid disease, iron deficiency, high fever, surgery or general anesthesia, “crash diets,” stress and certain medications. There are also certain dermatologic scalp disorders that can result in temporary or permanent hair loss, such as lupus, lichen planopilaris, and alopecia areata.

In general patients younger than 23 years old suffering from hair loss, hair transplantation is not an option. Most hair transplant specialist prefer to wait until a more definite diagnosis is established. Some doctors recommend doing miniturization studies to establish the cause of hair loss as MPHL, however these studies are not definite. Since in some cases hair loss is not permanent, one needs to be patient and not jump into conclusion. At this point, it is to patients' advantage to visit a hair restoration specialist to begin some sort of preventive medical regiment. Sometimes, as a result of using theses regiments you can decrease degree of future hair loss and patients may even get some hair back. In a few years, if hair loss is genetic and patient continues to lose hair and a more definite diagnosis is established, hair transplantation is a treatment option. There are some cases where the client is young but have genetically higher forehead. In these cases hair restoration using hair transplant to lower the hairline is a viable option even at a young age.

Non surgical Hair treatments for initial phases of hair loss

Currently in the USA, approximately 50 million men and women are affected by some type of hair loss. One of the most distressing forms of hair loss is Hereditary Androgenic Alopecia, also known as male pattern hair loss (MPHL) or Female Pattern hair loss(FPHL). 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 initial phases before a definite diagnosis is established for hair loss, non-surgical hair treatment can be a viable option and in some cases may reverse thinning hair.

Some of the less common causes of hair loss that are reversible with treatment, include: thyroid disease, iron deficiency, high fever, surgery or general anesthesia, “crash diets,” stress and certain medications. There are also certain dermatologic scalp disorders that can result in temporary hair loss.
In general patients younger than 23 years old suffering from hair loss and initial stages of hair loss in women, hair transplantation is may not be an option. Most hair transplant specialist prefer to wait until a more definite diagnosis is established to recommend hair transplantation. Since in some cases hair loss is not permanent, one needs to be patient and not jump into conclusion. At this point, it is to patients' advantage to visit a hair restoration specialist to begin some sort of preventive medical hair treatment regiment. Sometimes, as a result of using theses hair regiments you can decrease degree of future hair loss and patients may even get some hair back. In a few years, if hair loss is genetic and patient continues to lose hair and a more definite diagnosis is established, hair transplantation is a treatment option.

Although there are no miracle cures for hair loss, there are some FDA approved hair products and medications that may help. These products and their effects should be discussed with hair restoration specialist before considering using them. Some of the FDA approved products include Finasteride, and Topical Minoxidil. Other Topical Medications are available such as Tretinoin, Diazoxide, Cyotcol, Progesterone, and topical Estrogen. These medications have been used in the past for the treatment of hair loss. There is also different shampoos, conditioner and vitamins such as Zinc, Biotin, B complex E, C and Iron that may help keep the overall condition of the hair healthy.

PRP therapy has gained popularity as a non surgical treatment option for men and women in the initial stages of hairloss. PRP is a concentration derived from clients' own blood, It has growth factors that stimulate hair growth when injected into the scalp. Usually Doctor draws patient's own blood and run it through a machine to separate the platelets, and then injects the plasma cells into the thinning hair. ACell is a protein matrix that when injected into the scalp recruits the body’s own intrinsic growth factors and healing proteins over a period of several months. It is suggested that the combination of ACell and PRP provide a continuous supply of growth factors to the native hair follicles for several months.
