How is FUE different than other types of hair transplant?

There are two primary methods of a hair transplant procedure, the FUE, and the Follicular Unit Transplantation hereafter referred to as FUT. Before covering the differences, a person should note that both types of transplantation procedures are designed to harvest donor hair and transplant them into area(s) needing coverage. However, this is essentially the only similarity between the two. The primary difference between the two types of procedures lies with how the donor hairs are harvested by the surgeon. In the FUE procedure, Dr. Tahsini uses advanced tech to remove follicles from the scalp in tiny “punches”. Basically, a tiny incision hole is made which removes the hair follicle from a donor site and then is transplanted in another area of the scalp. Compared to FUT, the FUT actually involves the surgeon cutting out a line of the scalp to get the donor hair. Once the line of the scalp has been removed the surgeon pulls hairs from the piece of the scalp which has been removed and then transplants the hair. With FUE, your board-certified hair surgeon, Dr. Tahsini, does not remove any part of the scalp at all; rather, donor hairs are directly harvested from the scalp.

What is ARTAS?

The ARTAS robotic-assisted follicular unit extraction hair transplant procedure is one of the latest technological advancements in hair transplantation. ARTAS assists surgeons like Dr. Tahsini who perform FUE hair transplantation procedures, which were previously covered in this section. Surgeons who use ARTRAS are able to safely perform FUE procedures with greater precision, control, and efficiency; all which leads to better results and client satisfaction. Dr. Tahsini is a board-certified hair surgeon and will decide if ARTAS is the way to go in your case. It should be known that not every surgeon who performs FUE procedures utilizes the ARTAS system. But the best of them will let you know the cons and pros of every method.

What is PRP Therapy for Hair?

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. It is a type of non-surgical therapy that has proven to be effective for a number of issues, including hair loss. Small amounts of blood will be drawn from your body and spun, separating the platelet-rich plasma cells. These cells are then injected directly into the scalp. Dr. Tahsini at Los Angeles Hair Institute is one of the most qualified and board-certified doctors in Torrance and South Bay with a great record of PRP for Hair Restoration.

When will I see my new hair after the surgery?

The timeline for when a person will notice newly transplanted hair growing will vary person to person as genetics, quality of donor hair, and other factors will impact the frequency. For a guideline that most people will accept as a general timeline, see below. • Day of surgery to day 5: These days are important and the doctor will provide information on how to care for the newly transplanted hair. Make sure to follow the instructions provided as failure to do so may negate the wanted results. • Days 6 to 10: Swelling should be subsided and the redness should be very minimal, if even present. Patients may notice “crust” over the skin where it has dried but this is not causing worry. People should continue to follow their doctor’s orders on how to remove crusts to prevent the risk of infections. By the end of the second week, the scalp should not have any more crust forming. • Weeks 2 to 3: Don’t worry if the newly transplanted hairs disappear at this point. This is completely normal and no need for an alarm that the procedure has failed. The process is still “working below the surface”. • End of the fourth month: At this point you should start to notice some of the newly transplanted hairs appear. Be aware that they will be thin but it’s normal as they’re still new and going through the growth process. They will get thicker in time. • End of month 9: You should see a considerable amount of the donor hair arise from the scalp at this point. The length of them should be about two to three inches. It still may appear thin but will thicken in the near future. • End of the first year: Approximately 75% of the donor hairs will now have come about and have a little curvature to them. Most of the hairs will have achieved the desired thickness and the patient will notice a significant amount more of hair coverage. • End of the second year: This will be the final result of the procedure. It’s hypothesized that most men realize the full result from the procedure by the first year but doctors agree patients will recognize full potential by the end of the second year.

What causes my hair loss?

According to Los Angeles Hair Institute, hair loss can be attributed to a number of different variables such as genetics, sudden hormonal changes, specific medical conditions, or the types of medications that you either are currently or have recently taken. While both genders are subject to hair loss, it is significantly more common in men. When people think about “baldness” or “losing hair” it’s safe to assume that most will immediately think of hair loss occurring on top of the head as it’s the most common and, unfortunately, the most visible. Before thinking about taking any action to correct a problem, it’s often wise to have a fundamental understanding of what is causing the problem in the first place. Again, each person has different genetics and external environments. Person A may be losing their hair simply because of genetics, but person B may be on medication, causing hair to fall out. Every person should go through a consultation with their doctor to assess and hopefully identify the cause(s). Below are common causes of baldness in men. Genetics, family history, or DNA: This is the most common reason for hair loss. In this case, a person has done nothing to contribute to the baldness; rather, it lies within their DNA that they are destined to lose their hair. There is no set age at which a man may notice their hairline starting to recede or thin out. Baldness can begin occurring in some cases as early as late teens. Again, each person’s body is different, and the timing and progression will both differ. Hormonal Changes: In rare cases, in which women are impacted by baldness, it is most often attributed to hormonal changes that are brought on by pregnancy, childbirth, or menopause. Men, however, are also subject to hormonal changes, which may cause baldness, but it is usually limited to problems with their thyroid. Medical Conditions: The most common medical condition associated with baldness is alopecia areata, which often affects more than just a person’s scalp. Scalp infections left untreated can also cause short-term or long-term problems, which will impact hair growth. Medications and Supplements: Each drug maker, brand, and medication is different and may impact people differently, so identifying specific drugs by name is nearly impossible. However, it’s been verified that certain medications people take for the following issues commonly lead to hair loss: cancer, arthritis, depression, heart issues, gout, and high blood pressure. It is strongly recommended to research any drug you’re taking and speak to your physician before starting any medication or supplement if you are concerned about it, causing hair loss. Significant Stress: A person who has experienced an extremely stressful event such as a death in the family, job loss, divorce/breakup, or something similar is subject to a general thinning or loss of hair. In most cases, this is only temporary for a few months, and the hair should return to normal as before the traumatic event. It’s still advisable to seek consultation to make sure that is the case.

Am I causing my hair loss?

You like putting on your favorite team’s ball cap on your way out the door Saturday morning. You do this every weekend. Suddenly, your neighbor mentions to you that if you continue to wear that thing your hair will start to fall out. Every man has heard this. Fear not. That ballcap or any hat you wear is not going to make you go bald quicker, your hair to thin, or cause you to start balding. An old wives’ tale is that wearing hats will somehow restrict the amount of blood flow to hair follicles which deprives them of nutrients which will eventually cause them to die. There is no conclusive research that supports any such theory. If this theory was somehow true, then the amount of pressure needed to be exerted on the scalp would be terribly painful and you’d notice your head start to turn different colors. However, wearing a hat too often may impact the health of your hair in ways other than baldness. If you wear a hat when it’s warm, exercising, or anything else which may induce sweat causing moisture to get trapped inside the hat, it has the potential to cause irritation to the scalp. Likewise, if your hat is strapped to your head too tightly, this can cause discomfort or irritation. If you do wear a hat more often than not or even constantly during the weekends, make sure to take steps necessary to keep your hat sanitary by regularly washing it and by not wearing it too tightly. But in no way, shape, or form is a hat going to contribute to baldness. Don’t blame your trusty, go-to ballcap for something genetics or other external factors are causing.
