Planning for Your Hair Transplant Consultation
The first step in the hair transplantation process is a consultation with Dr. DeJoseph. During this private meeting, you will discuss your medical background, your past surgeries and hair regrowth methods, any illnesses that may delay your post-operative healing, and other medical information. This information can help Dr. DeJoseph to determine if surgical hair transplantation is a safe and effective measure to take. Your age, degree of hair loss, facial structure, and long-term aesthetic goals will all be considered in the planning. Next, he will examine your scalp and current hair patterns to determine what results you should expect to see from your hair transplant procedure. Dr. DeJoseph will discuss the number of treatments and the time frame necessary to achieve your optimum results. He will want to know about your own personal concerns about your hair and the procedure and take the time to answer whatever questions you may have. At the end of your consultation, you will most likely begin scheduling your future hair transplantation treatments.
What to Expect From Your Hair Transplant Procedure
Dr. DeJoseph uses the Follicular Unit Hair Transplant (FUT) procedure to achieve realistic and natural-looking results for his female and male patients. It is an out-patient procedure that can be performed in the offices of Premier Image Cosmetic & Laser Surgery under very mild sedation. During a typical FUT procedure, Dr. DeJoseph will take a small strip of your hair from the back of your head. Using refined hair transplant technology, that strip of hair can be separated into individual hair units, usually containing one to three hair follicles.
Once transplanted, the hair follicles will root and grow overtime to form a new hairline that is natural and realistic. Because it is made from your own hair, there will be no slight difference in color, consistency, or other characteristics.
The entire hair transplant procedure is comprised of several smaller treatments, each of which can be done while the patient rests and watches television, if desired. By the end of your hair transplant procedure, hundreds of follicles can be transplanted to the treatment area under the expert hands of Dr. DeJoseph.
