Questions about Hair Restoration

What causes hair loss?

Hair loss can be caused by a number of factors. If hair loss runs in your family, you are more likely to experience thinning hair or baldness, particularly as you age. Even if you are not predisposed to hair loss, age, medications, and certain medical conditions can work alone or in combination to cause the loss of hair.

What are the surgical options for hair restoration?

There are two primary types of hair restoration surgery: Strip harvesting method and follicular unit extraction (FUE). The Austin plastic surgeons at our office offer NeoGraft, the most advanced and effective FUE option available.

What are the benefits of NeoGraft?

The NeoGraft process does not require scalpel incisions and will not leave linear scars. Strip harvesting methods require a large amount of hair and scalp be excised, which can result in longer recovery periods and more surgical risks. Because NeoGraft does not require incisions, there are few risks involved in the process and most people are able to return to work and resume normal activities within 24 hours of their procedure.

Choosing a board certified plastic surgeon with an aesthetic eye who is very experienced in Neograft, results in natural-looking, full, and healthy head of hair.

What are my nonsurgical hair restoration options?

Austin hair transplantation surgeons Dr. Dustin Reid and Dr. Ashley Gordon offer nonsurgical hair restoration options including prescription medications and topical treatments. These treatments may be effective on their own in slowing hair loss and are often combined with NeoGraft. What is best for you will be based on your specific needs.
