When to consider a male hair transplant?

Men experiencing significant thinning, and in overall good health, may be good candidates for a male hair transplant in Miami. Nonetheless, not every man that meets these criteria should undergo surgery. Some men may be asked to wait and consider other male pattern baldness treatment options while waiting.

Younger men in their 20s, for example, should wait longer to undergo this procedure as their male hair loss pattern will progress with age. Once the pattern is fully established, a hair restoration surgeon can design a plan that’s most suitable for them.

Most common areas treated in a male hair transplant

Male hair transplant is very effective at increasing the amount of hair in different areas of the body but most commonly the face and scalp. Thanks to the latest advances in the field of hair restoration, male baldness is no longer an incurable disease. You can now restore your eyebrows, beard, mustache, scalp hair, hairlines, sideburns, and even chest hair. The FUE technique allows precise control of the angle, depth, and also direction of placement. However, this technique demands good surgical skill as the process can be lengthy and repetitive.

Hair transplantation techniques

When it comes to male hair restoration, there are two primary techniques used. It can be difficult for patients to pick the right procedure without the help of a qualifying surgeon.

FUT Method

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a traditional technique able to restore a large number of hairs. The process is simple and less time-consuming. Men suffering from hair loss can get natural results from a FUT male hair transplant. However, this technique has some drawbacks. The procedure can leave a large scar on the back of the head, which can make the results look somewhat unattractive with a close-cropped haircut.

Fue Method

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a modern and advanced technique of male hair restoration used at many clinics nationwide. During the procedure, the hair transplant doctor will extract hair follicles from the donor site, usually the back of the scalp. This procedure is minimally invasive. Patients remain conscious the whole time since only local anesthesia is applied. Your hair growth is carefully mapped before implantation to ensure the most natural-looking results.

There are minimal recovery and low risk of complications. After the procedure, the surgeon will provide patients with clear aftercare instructions. Thankfully, FUE male hair transplant does not leave any visible scars. So far the FUE method is the best hair transplant for men.

Neograft Automated FUE

NeoGraft is a type of FUE method used during a male hair transplant. Patients can regain a full and natural hairline using their natural hair. The NeoGraft system is FDA approved. It helps speed up the procedure, and it reduces scarring. The process involves removing hair from areas of the head with healthy growth, mainly on the back of the head. These hairs are genetically different from hairs on the areas experiencing male hair loss, commonly on the top of the head. They can resist DHT – a hormone responsible for damaging hair follicles.

NeoGraft helps extract these grafts in equal dimensions, which helps avoid damage to hair follicles and maximize hair transplantation. The surgeon then prepares the targeted areas for implantation by creating the recipient sites in the right direction according to the agreed hairstyle. The whole process can be divided into two parts. The first phase is when the hair follicle is harvested, and the second phase is when the new implants are made. Once the procedure has been completed, your surgeon will advise you on follow-up care.

Some of the most common benefits of FUE with NeoGraft include:

  • No stitches or staples
  • Less discomfort
  • Faster than all other male hair restoration techniques
  • Incisions will heal in only a few days
  • Patients can expect a full recovery in only a week
  • It reduces the amount of time required to perform the procedure

Male hair transplant procedure steps

The procedure itself can take 4 to 8 hours. Patients who have a lot of hair to be transplanted may need to come back for a second procedure. Patients will be awake the entire time during men's hair transplant surgery. Anesthesia is required to make the scalp numb, and a mild sedative to help patients relax. The procedure starts with the removal of healthy hairs by using the FUT or FUE technique. Technicians will prepare donor hair before is transplanted.

Also, the scalp is made ready for the transplant. The healthy hair is placed into the targeted areas. Once the areas that need hair are fully covered according to the male hair restoration plan designed by your surgeon, the scalp is bandaged, and the surgeon provides the patient with at-home care instructions.

Post-operative instructions and aftercare

Post-operative instructions can vary based on the desired results. While the procedure is virtually painless, it is good that patients plan ahead of surgery. Some useful aftercare tips include:

  • Avoid touching your hair with your fingers during the first night of recovery. It is best you sleep with your head elevated on a few pillows during the first few nights.
  • Showering is ok 24-36 hours after surgery but avoid water straight from the shower head. Shampoo gently with your fingers. Some surgeons suggest applying baby oil or olive oil to the surgical site before taking a shower that way the scabs are softer and easy to wash off.
  • Avoid strenuous physical activity for a week.
  • Patients are advised not to drink 14 hours after surgery. Alcohol inhibits blot clot formation, and smoking can affect wound healing.
  • Avoid sun exposure for more than a few minutes. You can wear a hat right after the procedure.
  • It is natural for crusts to form in the transplanted areas but they should fall off in 7-10 days.

As long as you follow your surgeons’ post-operative instructions, there should be no evidence of the procedure in about ten days. You can return to your usual routine right after surgery. Although the pain and discomfort are minimal, pain medication is usually prescribed. Some patients may experience swelling in the forehead or around the eyes for a few days. Any persistent bleeding, fever, and pain should be immediately reported to the physician.

Men of different ages, ethnicities, and hair types can benefit from male hair restoration. Hair implants for men can have a dramatic impact on the individual’s appearance. However, the results depend mostly on the skill of the surgeon. You need to choose a hair doctor who understands male hair loss, and who has sufficient experience with male hair restoration. For a successful men's hair transplant, it is vital that the surgeon has proven skill otherwise the results will be disastrous.

The male hair transplant results can be seen within six months, but the complete results will take about a year. Unfortunately, the irregular cycle of hair growth will cause the grafts to grow at different rates. The hair may be thinner at first, but it will eventually regain strength and density as it matures.

How much does male hair transplant in Miami cost?

The male hair transplant cost can vary. It is based on who performs the procedure, place you get it done, and targeted area. In the United States, the average cost for this procedure varies from $3,000.00 up to $24,000.00 with the average price per graft from $6-11 per hair follicle. At Jolie Plastic Surgery we provide significant savings on male hair transplant costs. We charge an average of $3.50 per hair graft.

Male hair transplant FAQs

A plan is devised to achieve the best possible results considering the amount of donor hair available and cost the patient can afford.
Male hair restoration surgery is considered a minor surgery yet it is invasive, so it involves some risks. This procedure can take up to 10 hours, which can be taxing for the surgeon and patient. Some minor complications include:
  • Temporary bleeding and pain – Persistent bleeding should not occur and additional stitching is usually not required. Most patients don’t require pain medication. However, surgeons can prescribe pain relievers if necessary.
  • Numbness – Temporary numbness in the donor area is possible, which can last up to 18 weeks in rare cases.
  • Itching and swelling – Itching is also mild. Daily shampooing will help alleviate the discomfort. Swelling can last up to 2 days with a “black eye” in only 1% of the patients.
  • Infection and scarring – Although infection is possible it is easily treated with antibiotics. Keloid scarring is rare in pre-disposed patients.
  • Cysts – A few cysts in the recipient area may occur, but they disappear in a couple of weeks.
There shouldn’t be any pain with surgery. Most patients will only experience just a little discomfort. The discomfort is mainly caused by being in the chair for many hours, but you will have a couple of breaks. Mild pain after surgery may occur, but there are painkillers to make your recovery more comfortable.
Scarring is invisible for the most part - only a small scar on the back of the scalp, but it will be covered by existing hair.
Transplanted hair is genetically-resistant to male baldness so they should not fall off. If you notice hair loss in other areas after undergoing male hair transplant surgery, you may need a second procedure.
Patients should take it easy for a couple of days after surgery, avoid strenuous work and exercise for about ten days.
Some patients may experience something called ‘shock loss’ when their hair is too weak and miniaturizing. However, hair should return unless the patient’s hair is too weak. It is crucial you choose the right surgeon for this procedure.
Some patients are concerned that they will damage their hair and lose it if they don’t treat it right. There is no need to use different products or shampoo after male hair transplant surgery. As long as you follow your surgeon’s aftercare instructions, you should be fine.
Patients should see full results between 6 to 9 months after surgery. However, it can take as much as 12 months for some patients. It is normal for hair to look thinner three months after surgery and to fall out within 2-8 months.
