What to Expect During Your Consultation
Hair Loss Specialist Washington, D.C.
Losing hair is disconcerting, to say the least. If you have purchased one or more hair loss products from your local pharmacy, or from an infomercial, and were unsatisfied with the results, then you may feel as though there is no hope for regaining your full head of hair. The truth, however, is that most hair loss products rarely perform as well as advertised; most fail to produce any noticeable results. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon and hair loss specialist, Hadi M. Rassael in Washington, D.C. has the knowledge and expertise to effectively restore your lost hair, as well as the confidence that you may have lost along with it. The first step in achieving real hair restoration results is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rassael. We look forward to hearing from you!
The Truth about Hair Loss
Hair loss is more prevalent than many people realize. By the age of 60, more than 65% of men in the United States experience visible hair loss. When it is not a side effect of medication or specialized medical treatment, hair loss is typically a genetic issue. This genetic predisposition can cause some hair follicles to become sensitive to the male sex hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Exposure to this hormone can cause hair follicles (especially those in the front and crown of the scalp) to shrink and die. Meanwhile, many who have inherited this condition have hair on the sides and back of the scalp that are not affected by DHT. Hair from these sites can be transferred to areas affected by hair loss.
Consulting with Your Cosmetic Surgeon
Your initial consultation is a simple process designed to determine your candidacy and obtain all necessary information. Dr. Rassael will carefully examine the condition of your hair, including the pattern and extent of hair loss, before determining if you are a viable candidate for hair transplants. Since minor surgery is involved, your consultation will include a review of your medical history and current health conditions, as well as an interview to learn your specific needs and goals.
The hair transplant procedure is completed using local anesthesia.The micro-incisions used to extract and transplant donor follicles are so small that no bandages are needed following surgery. As with any surgical procedure, you will receive specific instructions for aftercare. In general, you will be advised to avoid any strenuous physical activity, including sex, for a short period following your surgery. Dr. Rassael will provide you with the guidance necessary to help you achieve the maximum benefits of your hair transplant procedure.
