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.

Best Hair restoration Treatments for Hair Loss Orange County

Some consider the hair to be the most aesthetic part of the face and as such hair loss can be psychologically very devastating. A primary reason for seeking hair restoration is to restore your appearance to the condition before hair loss. Before making a decision for hair restoration options, it is very important to get evaluated by a qualified hair restoration specialist to find the most comprehensive approach to address your hair loss concerns. If hair loss is in the beginning stage or in a more advanced stage, hair restoration specialist can recommend surgical or non surgical or a combination of treatment options.

During the initial consultation, the physician should spend a considerable amount of time to educate the patient utilizing computerized hair analysis to evaluate extent of hair loss, hair characteristics, hair density and the cause of hair loss. Once the cause of hair loss is determined, the doctor can give recommendations based on the patient's age, goal and expectation, patient's state of health, the degree of hair loss, donor size, donor density, and hair characteristics. If the client had previous surgery, it is imperative to examine the donor availability, and determine the progression of future hair loss to give a recommendation. Once the evaluation is done, the hair transplant specialist should give all the necessary information and educate the patient about both surgical and medical treatment options that may be beneficial to the client.

Since hair loss tends to be both gradual and progressive, it is often wise to combine a surgical and medical treatment regiment routine to get the most optimal result. Medical hair treatments such as finasteride and minoxidil are usually recommended to help preserve thinning hair. Hair transplants can be used to fill in the frontal hairline and thicken the mid scalp and the crown areas while medical treatments can be used to maintain the native hair and possibly enhance the long term results of hair restoration surgery. In most cases a combination of hair transplant surgery and non surgical hair restoration treatment is necessary. It is also important to note that genetic hair loss is progressive, if a patient chooses to not have any non surgical hair treatment and hair loss continues, multiple procedures may be necessary to maintain the desired density.

Hair transplant Cost Newport Beach

Hair transplant Cost Newport Beach

In the recent years hair restoration surgery has become very popular amongst both men and women. Although many desire to do the surgery, they are reluctant to do so due to the high cost of any cosmetic procedure. Many people even opt to travel to distant countries to get cheaper prices and endure the hassle of travelling and even be in unsafe areas. Some people even have the surgery performed by non medical doctors or even untrained medical assistants thinking they may save money. While the cost may be the driving factor in your decision, whatever you pay for a bad hair transplant is too much.

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. You may need to ask questions about their qualifications to see if they are licensed medical doctor. 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.

Hair transplant post op care and maintenance

posted Feb 6, 2020, 2:17 PM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Feb 6, 2020, 2:35 PM ]

Hair transplant post op care and maintenance

Hair transplant is a very safe and relatively minor surgical procedure. The surgical procedure is very easy and it is done in an office setting with local anesthesia. The actual procedure may take a few hours and the discomfort during and after the procedure is very minimal. Most patients are prescribed mild analgesic to help cope with discomfort for the first couple of days. Very light bandage is put on the grafted area for the first night which can be removed easily the next day. Dr. Meshkin always call his clients the first night to review the after care instructions and recommends that his patients rest for the first night after the procedure.

There is a post op regiment for shampooing which is reviewed and needs to be followed for the first week after the procedure. The next day the light bandage can be removed and a post op care regiment for shampooing and cleaning begins. Small crusts may form on each of the grafts, and these are usually camouflaged by wearing a hat or using any existing hair that can be combed over the recipient areas. These scabs will start to fall off by 5-10 days after the surgery. The transplanted hair growing from the scalp may initially start to grow, but will shed eventually. Usually within approximately one month, much of the transplanted hair is shed. However the roots remain and will be in dormant stage for a few weeks before new hair start to grow back in. In about three months, the hair begins to grow and continues to grow at a normal rate. About six months after a hair transplant session, the transplanted hairs begin to take on normal appearance and will continue to grow for a lifetime.

Patients are instructed to stay away from strenuous activity for the first week after the procedure and gradually start their normal activity. Usually the patient can return to work even as early as the next day. The patient is instructed to take some post op medications for the first few days and can start to ween off after a couple of days. Patient can return to swimming, normal exercise routine, and get a hair cut after three weeks. Dr. Meshkin will stay in contact and follows up with his clients closely for the first months to make sure all the necessary post op care is followed, monitor the hair growth and answer any questions that may arise.

The Best Medical hair Treatment options for hair loss

posted Jan 13, 2020, 10:05 AM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Jan 13, 2020, 10:07 AM ]

The Best Medical hair Treatment options for hair loss

The most common cause of hair loss in both men and women is Genetic Androgenic Alopecia. It is hereditary and progressive. Due to its progressive nature any hair treatment option should be offered considering future hair loss. A great hair restoration specialist would consider future hair loss and offer a comprehensive approach. In many cases a combination of hair transplant surgery and medical hair treatment is recommended. 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.

The following are the best hair treatment options other than surgery offered at Meshkin Medical Hair restoration Clinics:

1. Finasteride (Propecia™) is an oral medication available by prescription only, having been introduced to the market more than a decade ago. Finasteride is approved only for use by men. Through scientific studies, it has been shown to re-grow hair in some men and stop hair loss in an even higher percentage. Finasteride works by decreasing the formation of DHT, a hormone responsible in large part for male pattern hair loss, while not reducing testosterone, the overall male hormone responsible for masculinity. Therefore, any side effects that may involve male sexual function are mild and occur in less than 2% of all patients. Its use is suggested by hair restoration surgeons as an effective medication to slow down or reverse male pattern hair loss in many men. It is often used as a complimentary treatment for hair transplant patients.

2. Topical Minoxidil (Rogaine™) has been around for over 15 years and is helpful in slowing down hair loss, but less effective in helping new hair to grow. A higher concentration (5% solution) of minoxidil is now available for men and has been shown to be more effective than the 2% solution. 5% minoxidil solution is generally not recommended for use by women because it may stimulate the growth of facial hair, and also because at least one study suggests that it is not more effective than the 2% in females. There is a compound solution that is formulated by Dr. Meshkin that includes Minoxidil at higher concentration and other ingredients that helps and is effective for both men and women.

Both finasteride and minoxidil must be used on a continual basis in order to sustain results. If discontinued, the process of balding resumes. These medications may not work for everyone but they have a proven track record that shows some benefit to many people. In addition, combination treatment with minoxidil solution and finasteride may provide added benefit for men with androgenetic alopecia.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. Low Level Laser Treatment (LLLT) is available for treating hair loss. To see any results, it must be used up to three times a week, each time for 20 minutes for about 6-12 months. These are more effective if used in conjunction with Minoxidil or Propecia™ and are considered to be safe. However, the long term effectiveness and its safety need to be further investigated before the use of the device is substantiated.

6. 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 Doctor draws patient's own blood and run it through a machine to separate the platelets. Once the platelets are separated hair restoration doctor with numb the scalp and then the Plasma cells are injected into the thinning hair.

7. 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. The combined treatment of highly concentrated PRP and Acell is suggested improved hair growth over time. Repeated treatments are necessary and they are mostly effective on patients at initial phases of hair loss.

PRP and ACEll for hair loss treatment for women and young men

posted Dec 23, 2019, 1:23 PM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Dec 23, 2019, 1:24 PM ]

PRP and ACEll for hair loss treatment for women and young men

There are many different non surgical options that are available at initial stages of hair loss for both men and women. One of these options include stem cell regeneration using PRP or the Plasma Rich Platelet and Acell injections. In some cases, it can be effective and regrow hair in the areas of balding. These hair treatment options have gained popularity as a non surgical treatment for hair loss over the past few years. PRP and Acell regeneration are considered a nonsurgical hair loss treatment options that are used either in combination with hair transplant, or other hair care medical treatments in some cases.

Over the past decade, researchers began to understand the central role played by stem cells in hair follicle cycling. Every hair follicle contains a permanent reservoir of multi-potent stem cells that have the capacity to participate in growth, development and repair of tissues. The eventual understanding of this process of stem cell replenishment may contribute to molecular level treatments to revive hair follicles that have stopped producing mature hair. These treatments need to be continued until the condition turns it self off, which may take months to years.

PRP is a concentration derived from clients' own blood. It has growth factors that stimulate hair growth when injected into the scalp. Once in the scalp, PRP growth factors begin to degrade quickly so any benefit to thinning hair will be short lived and usually minimal. Therefore, this requires continuous treatments of the PRP injections . As a rule at Meshkin Medical hair restoration and hair transplant centers, PRP injections are recommended to be repeated 2-3 times a year to maintain any benefit. Dr. Meshkin recommends PRP in younger patients at the initial stages of hair loss and female clients who are starting to thin in the scalp area. The procedure takes about half an hour and does not require any down time.

In some cases where the patient does not want to use his/her blood or it is hard to draw the blood, Dr. Meshkin may recommend using ACELL injections. 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. A through hair loss evaluation is necessary to find out if PRP or ACell is an effective hair treatment option for individual's hair loss. At the initial hair restoration consultation, hair transplant specialist can evaluate the degree of hair loss and determine if PRP or ACell is a proper hair restoration treatment option.

History Of Hair Restoration Surgery Transformation And Latest Developments

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.

At the yearly meetings of ABHRS and ISHRS many hair restoration specialists present the latest developments in this field. If this method is perfected, The cells can produce infinite harvesting units which can then be placed back into the balding scalp. This phenomenon has already been proven feasible in humans, however research is still in the preliminary stages and has to be further developed in the future.

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.

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.
