Investing in Hair Replacement
Hair Transplant Cost Washington, D.C.
The American Hair Loss Association reports that more than 40% of men in the United States exhibit noticeable hair loss by the age of 35. That number almost doubles to 65% by the age of 60. There are countless companies and products that claim to offer hair restoration. Unfortunately, non-surgical, commercial hair replacement is largely ineffective. While surgical hair replacement is more costly than those solutions, a hair transplant can actually provide satisfying permanent results. Cosmetic surgeon Hadi M. Rassael can help you understand hair transplant cost during a consultation at our Washington, D.C.-area practice, as well as the many benefits of the procedure. If you would like to learn more about how a hair transplant procedure can help you, please contact our office today.
Conventional Hair Loss Treatment
Like other medical conditions, hair loss is categorized according to its cause, nature, and severity. Also like other conditions, hair loss is most effectively resolved when treatment is sought early. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a derivative of testosterone. Over time, DHT shrinks and destroys hair follicles that are genetically sensitive to the hormone. By suppressing these hormones, some modern hair loss treatments can slow or even stop the process of losing hair. Unfortunately, such treatments can do little for hair that has already been lost.
More Than Just Hair Replacement
Men’s health magazines, radio commercials, and TV infomercials constantly advertise a barrage of hair loss products that promise effective, natural-looking results for regrowing or replacing lost hair. However, these usually deliver little or no actual results. Hair transplantation, on the other hand, has provided many patients with the results they desire. In most cases of male pattern baldness, the hair along the sides and back of the head possess a stronger resistance to DHT. Dr. Rassael can harvest small grafts from the patient’s own healthy follicles and transplant them onto balding areas. The technique provides a natural solution to hair loss, and the transplanted follicles will continue to grow for a lifetime. Therefore, many have found hair transplantation to be a much better investment than other hair restoration treatments.
The Benefits of Hair Transplantation
Hair follicles are unique, and constantly cycle through periods of growth and rest. As a hair grows and sheds, the follicle disintegrates almost entirely, and a new follicle is formed in its place. When DHT-resistant hair is transplanted, it retains its genetic properties, allowing hair to grow where it once stopped growing. The many benefits of surgical hair transplants include natural-looking results, lifelong hair growth, and a safe, low-risk procedure.
