One of the most common treatments we offer for men is hair restoration. With more than 35 million men in the United States facing male pattern baldness, hair restoration treatments are more common than ever. There are many options available to balding individuals, including surgical treatments like scalp reduction, scalp lifting and flap surgery. There are also non-surgical options like hair pieces and hair weaving. At Park Plaza Plastic Surgery, we rely on micro and mini grafts to restore hair, as they are the safest and most applicable options.
Before your procedure, Dr. George Lefkovits will need to get a detailed medical history from you, especially in regard to baldness in your family, as well as the current progression you have seen in your own hair loss. If you have sought other hair restoration treatments, it is important that you share those with our plastic surgeon, even if those treatments were unsuccessful.
When dealing with hair grafts, it is important to understand the differences involved. A standard graft consists of skin strips of around 40 hairs, whereas a mini graft has 5 to 12 hairs on a strip. A micro graft has even less hair on the skin strip, using one to four hairs. Typically, a mini graft is used for larger balding areas while a micro graft is used commonly at the hairline.
As with any procedure, there are risks associated with hair transplantation, but those risks are minimized by seeking treatment with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
