Hair Grafting

For men with balding or thinning hair, Dr. Nima offers hair grafting. This procedure provides virtually painless and non-surgical hair restoration to the scalp. Hair loss can be due to aging, hormones, or a family history of baldness. Generally, the earlier a man loses his hair, the more severe baldness will become.

Candidates for Hair Grafting

Candidates for hair grafting should have a healthy amount of hair growth elsewhere on the scalp to serve as a donor site. It is important to understand that hair regrowth will match your existing hair in color, texture, and curliness. Patients should be in good general health, be non-smokers, and have realistic expectations about hair grafting surgery.

The Procedure

Dr. Nima often recommends FUE (follicular unit extraction), a type of hair grafting. FUE involves removing individual hair follicles from the scalp and relocated and “replanted” into the bald or thinning area. This allows hair to be replaced on the head and throughout the hairline. Restored hair will grow similar to natural hair and most patients see significant growth within six months.

The Recovery

With no scarring and no stitches, most patients return to work within a few days after a hair grafting procedure. You may gently wash your hair two days after surgery. Some patients notice swelling or redness after hair grafting. Dr. Nima may recommend you avoid strenuous activity for 10 days after the procedure, as activity increases blood flow to the scalp and may cause your transplants or incisions to bleed. You will begin to see hair growth and results within 6-9 months after the procedure.
