It is hard to look your best when your hair is thinning out. Although treatments like minoxidil and finasteride are available, many people find that they offer disappointing results. Any gains that you make are likely to be given up later. Our hair transplant in Fort Worth, however, is a permanent hair restoration technique that can dramatically improve your hair and boost your self-esteem.

What is a hair transplant?

A hair transplant is a cosmetic procedure involving the removal of hair units from a donor area, typically the back of the scalp, for transplantation into thinning areas.

The two main types of hair transplants:

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

This method involves the removal of a strip of donor scalp to be transplanted into the recipient area. This technique will result in a visible scar.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

This technique is a bit more nuanced than FUT, involving the removal and implanting of individual hair follicles. Healing time is somewhat faster, and this technique does not result in a scar.

Best candidates

The best candidates for a hair transplant are:

  • Men with male pattern baldness
  • Men who have a stable hair loss pattern
  • Men and women dealing with hair loss related to trauma

Your motivation and desire for a more attractive head of hair, as well as improved hair density, are key factors in the treatment of hair loss.

Generally, sex or age is not a disqualifying factor for getting a hair transplant. Senior citizens have undergone successful procedures, while those in their thirties have also benefited.

To determine if you would make a good candidate for a hair transplant in Fort Worth, schedule a consultation with your Genesis Lifestyle Medicine provider in Fort Worth. At this meeting, they will let you know if there are any factors limiting your ability to benefit from a hair transplant.

Before & After

Hair Transplant Recovery Timeline

Although every individual recovers at a slightly different rate, here is what you can generally expect when recovering from a hair transplant procedure:

First Two Weeks

Scabs from the extraction sites will begin falling away by the end of the first week. Although your scalp will be somewhat red and tender at first, this should fade rapidly during the initial phase of your hair transplant recovery.

Up To Four Months

Everyone is in agreement on this one: The first four months is the most challenging phase of hair transplant recovery. It is normal to experience some significant hair shedding at the treatment area.

Although this is a good sign that the hair follicles are responding, it can also be alarming to the person going through it, as they may now be in a worse situation than before the transplant. Rest assured that some initial shedding is completely normal and expected. Your hair follicles will be going into a dormant phase before reemerging and growing new hair.

Most hair transplant recipients find that their hairline begins growing hair before the crown area picks up the pace.

Four to Six Months

You will be happy to know that this phase of your hair transplant recovery is when your hair begins growing again, although it may be somewhat fine at first. Since individual hair follicles will be in a different growth phase at any given time, your growth may be somewhat patchy at first.

The hairs that initially grow fine will eventually become thicker hairs, as your hair density becomes increasingly apparent.

Eight to Twelve Months

During this phase of your hair transplant recovery, the transplanted hairs will begin maturing. What began as fine growth becomes thicker growth, and most of the eventual results of your hair transplant procedure will now be evident.

Twelve Months and Beyond

Although most of your results have become evident by now, you should still see some continued improvement at the one-year mark and beyond. By 24 months after your hair transplant in Fort Worth, your final results will be evident.
