Hair Transplant Frequently Asked Questions

Is a hair transplant the best hair loss treatment?
NO
The best hair loss treatment is the treatment that achieves the best RESULT for the customer.
• All hair loss treatments treats hair loss differently.
A Hair Transplant can increase the # of hairs in an area.  However that is all!
• 
A Hair Transplant can not PREVENT further hair loss  and a Hair Transplant can not REGROW thinning hair thicker & healthier

Can a hair transplant give you a full head of hair?
 NO

• A hair transplant increases the number of hairs in an area of the scalp.  Therefore a hair transplant can improve the number of hair’s that a person has on their head, but a hair transplant MOVES hair from the sides and back of the scalp to the area on the top of the head that requires the new hair.
• A full head of hair = approx 100,000 hair strands
When a person experiences genetic hair loss, over time the number of hair strands reduces.   A Hair Transplant redistributes hair follicles from one area of the scalp to another.  Therefore a hair transplant RE-DISTRIBUTES hair, or, a hair transplant spreads out the hair remaining.  Because it is only move hair around, a hair transplant can not give you a full head of hair.

Does the transplanted hair need finasteride?
• NO
• The transplanted hair follicles are resistant to the impacts of DHT and Genetic Hair Loss.  No Medication is mandatory for these hair follicles.
• HOWEVER, we recommend patients consider some form of hair loss treatment to slow + prevent further hair loss of the non-transplanted hair.  Therefore the non-transplanted hair will combine & enhance the coverage of the scalp – for longer!  If the patient would like to avoid consuming finasteride because of concerns with potential side effects, PRP is a daily drug and daily chemical free hair restoration treatment that you can consider.  PRP will help both the transplanted and non-transplanted hair as well.

Who performs a hair transplant procedure?
• A hair transplant procedure is performed by a team of people, who are led by a doctor known as a hair transplant surgeon.  
It is important to note, that there is NO OFFICIAL TRAINING or CERTIFICATION or EXAM in Australia that a doctor is required to sit and pass in order for the doctor to call himself a hair transplant surgeon.  There are international bodies that offer certification, and the ISHRS.org have recommendations however has minimal authority to enforce penalties and sanctions.
 When reviewing a hair transplant surgeon, we recommend AVOIDING blogs and hair transplant notice boards.  If you would like to review how Scott Moore recommends you should evaluate a hair transplant surgeon, please contact us for a consultation.

Hair Transplant: Frequently Asked Questions

Hair Transplant Frequently Asked Questions

How many grafts do I need?
Please watch this video – to the right of screen
• When you ask a hair transplant clinic how many grafts do you need, after they have asked you that question, ask them this:
“Can you please show me 5 patients who you have performed surgery on within the last 5 years, who have received ___# of grafts to treat an area that matches the size of the area that I am looking to treat?”

Is there an age limit for hair transplant procedures?
• Technically no.
• However, the patient is STRONGLY recommended to ensure they treat an area in its entirety.  This means, if you are partially balding in your frontal hair line, you should ONLY do a hair transplant if you can re-create the frontal hair line completely.  Temporal hair transplants are notorious for requiring multiple procedures into the same area, because the hair behind the hair transplants recipient area continues to get worse.
• Whether the patient is 25yrs of age or 65yrs of age.  Making sure you are a suitable candidate is strongly advised before considering a hair transplant procedure.

Are FUE Hair Transplants “scar free”?
• No.  FUE Sources the hair by taking singular hair follicles across a large area. To safely extract the hair follicle from the donor region requires a surgical device to be used to “extract” or “dig out” the hair follicle.  This surgical extraction process will leave a small round scar where the hair follicle was extracted from.  FUE hair transplant scars appear in a spread out pattern, whereas FUT hair transplant scars appear in the form of a line.  Because FUT Hair Transplants extract hair by removing an entire piece of skin VS FUE hair transplants which take hair in a dispersed pattern.
• Including PRP treatments before receiving a hair transplant has shown to assist in preparing the skin for the trauma of a hair transplant.  Therefore reducing the severity of the scar by encouraging the skin to heal faster.
