How to Find The Perfect Haircut after Hair Restoration

Thinning hair on top might restrict your choices in hairstyles. After your hair transplant, you may be able to choose from a wider variety of hairstyles again. MAXIM Hair Restoration wants to help you select a great haircut after your procedure.

MAXIM Hair Restoration created this guide to help you select the best haircut after your hair restoration. Once you determine your face shape, choose the hairstyle that suits you best. Your hair will continue to grow in and thicken over the next several months, so you may be able to try hairstyles you weren’t able to wear in the past.

What is your face shape?

When choosing a hairstyle after hair restoration, look at the shape of your face in the mirror to determine your face shape. Observe the width of your forehead, jawline, and cheekbones. Also observe the length of your face from forehead to chin. Choose from these primary face shapes, based on your observation:

  • Round: You have a round face if your jaw is round and your cheekbones are wider than your jawline but your face is similar in length to the height from jaw to forehead.
  • Oval: If your jaw is round, your face length is longer than the width of your cheekbones, and your forehead is slightly larger than the width of your jaw, you have an oval-shaped face.
  • Rectangular: A rectangular face is similar to an oval face except the chin is more angular than rounded.
  • Heart: If your forehead is the widest feature of your face, followed by the cheekbones, and your face tapers to a point at the chin, you have a heart-shaped face.
  • Square: You have a square face when you have a sharp jawline and all measurements around your face are similar.
  • Diamond: If the length of your face is the longest, then the width, and your jaw and forehead taper in, you have a diamond-shaped face.

Haircuts to try

Once you’ve determined your facial shape, you can select a hairstyle that best suits your face. Here are some of the most common hairstyles:

Side-part

As your new hair follicles grow and your hair thickens, you can style your hair in the classic side-part style. Simply part your hair on one side and comb over to the other side. If one side of your head has thinner hair than the other side, comb the thicker hair over the thinner hair. Secure in place with a dab of gel if you prefer. Cut the hair in different proportions or lengths to vary this hairstyle. This style is highly adaptable and works for both youthful or more mature demeanors.

This classic hairstyle is always stylish and works well with faces of all shapes, but looks exceptionally good on diamond-shaped faces.

Straight back

Combing your hair straight back or slicking it back with gel or pomade is a great hairstyle after your hair starts to thicken and grow longer. Since the slicked-back hairstyle works best with thin or fine hair, this is an optimal hairstyle for many men after hair restoration. You can add extra hold with hairspray if you desire. You can also slick the hair back but comb it slightly to one side. Experiment to see how it looks on you. This smooth look never goes out of style.

The straight-back style works well on square and oval faces.

French Crop

The French Crop, also called the Caesar Cut, is a simple but very versatile hairstyle. The hair is cut almost the same length all over the head. Modify your cut slightly based on the texture and thickness of your hair. Thicker hair needs a little more distinction in the length from top to sides, while thinner hair can be trimmed more evenly. The hair is usually styled more toward the face in a modern French Crop. Use hair products and a blow dryer to add more body to your hair with this style.

The French Crop looks great on rectangular, oval, and diamond-shaped faces.

Crew cut

The crew cut or buzz cut is simply hair cut to a very short length all the way around the head. This is a great style to wear two or three months after your hair restoration, as your hair starts to grow evenly over your head and get thicker. The best thing about this hairstyle is that it requires very little maintenance.

Crew cuts generally work well on square or oval-shaped faces.

Pompadour

The pompadour hairstyle has been popular for hundreds of years. The pompadour consists of longer lengths of hair on top styled up and away from the face contrasting with very short hair on the sides and back of the head. This style is trendy because it’s easy to update and modernize.

The pompadour is a suitable hairstyle for oval and round faces because the extra hair on top lengthens the face and compliments rounder facial features.

Quiff

The quiff is similar to the pompadour with slightly longer hair on top. To most effectively style a quiff, use a blow-dryer and styling products to give the hair volume and hold it in place.

The quiff hairstyle looks great on oval, square, and heart-shaped faces.

It’s important to follow your doctor’s instructions for the proper care of your hair after surgery while you maintain healthy hair habits like eating a balanced diet and being conscious of the chemicals in your hair products.

Top Hair Restoration Treatments

Hair loss among men is an increasingly common issue. You might be surprised to learn that around 35 million men and 21 million women suffer from hair loss. The American Hair Loss Association reports that 95% of hair loss in men is the result of a hereditary condition known as male pattern baldness. By age 21, 25% of men with male pattern baldness have experienced some hair loss. By the age of 50, a full 85% of American men have thinning hair.

Fortunately, these statistics don’t have to mean that a bald or balding scalp is inevitable. There are many hair restoration options that deliver anything from complete follicle transplantation to a subtle shadow of hair that mimics a natural hairline. Find out which option is best for you.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

Follicular unit extraction is a hair restoration procedure in which individual hair follicles are transplanted from a donor site to the area of thinning hair. A local anesthetic numbs the area while the surgeon meticulously performs follicle graft excisions using a micro-punch tool. An experienced surgeon can carefully select the follicles that are healthiest and most likely to survive the transplant procedure. 

The micropunches used for this procedure are extremely small, typically measuring just 0.6 to 0.8 mm. Though the process may leave a tiny white scar, this is usually too minuscule for others to notice. 

Depending on the scope of the treatment and the surgeon’s experience level, the FUE process may take anywhere from one to eight hours. Most treatment sessions are between two and four hours long. Some patients return for repeat treatments to complete all of the transplants.

The recovery process from FUE is quick and relatively painless. This is an outpatient procedure that allows patients to go home the same day. After the transplant, recovery takes about five to 10 days. Patients are advised to avoid exercise and any activity that would immerse the head in water for at least a week. Hair regrowth is usually visible in about four to six months. It may take up to a year to see full results.

Not all patients are eligible for FUE. This procedure works best for those who have thinning hair on the top or front of the head and thick hair in the back.

Surgeons should perform a FOX test before scheduling any FUE procedure. The FOX test involves taking around 100 grafts and evaluating the number of complete and incomplete follicular units. The FOX test delivers grades of FOX 1 through 5. Patients with a FOX 4 or FOX 5 score are ineligible for FUE. Those with a score of FOX 1 are prime candidates. Surgeons must use their discretion when determining whether to perform FUE on FOX 2 or FOX 3 patients.

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

Follicular unit transplantation involves removing a strip of skin from the back or side of the head from which to extract individual hair follicles. This strip is typically 0.4 to 0.6 inches wide. The length depends on the number of follicles required for the transplant. After removing the skin, the surgeon must close the wound with stitches or staples that will leave a long, thin scar. Patients can easily conceal this scar by keeping their hair at least half an inch in length.

Once the strip of skin has been removed, a technician carefully extracts the individual hair follicles from it and prepares them for transplantation. The surgeon then inserts these hair follicles into the balding area in a natural-looking pattern. A local anesthetic is used for the procedure. Some patients may also elect to take a sedative. The procedure itself may take between four and 12 hours. 

Initial recovery from the FUT procedure typically takes 10 to 12 days. Patients usually notice results within six to nine months, though it can take up to a year.

The best patients for FUT are those over the age of 25 with a Norwood pattern of hair loss, where the hair recedes from the hairline at the forehead first. This is followed later by hair loss on the top of the head. Those with less contrast between their skin color and hair color are also preferred candidates for FUT. Though the recovery time is slightly longer for FUT, the total procedural time is shorter, and this hair restoration treatment usually costs less than FUE.

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)

Scalp micropigmentation is the process of depositing pigment into the scalp to create the illusion of a shadow from hair. When used to fill in thinning areas amid longer hair, SMP can create the illusion of a fuller head of hair. Used on a bald scalp, SMP creates the appearance of a recently shorn buzz cut. Some patients also use SMP to cover scarring from FUE or FUT treatments.

The process of SMP is similar to microblading or tattooing. However, this isn’t considered a tattoo because the ink does not penetrate the skin as deeply. SMP is considered semipermanent. The pigmentation typically lasts for about eight years, but it lightens progressively over this period of time. 

Each SMP treatment takes around four or five hours. Most patients get three or four treatments, scheduled a few weeks apart, to properly layer the pigmentation. After each SMP treatment, you must avoid washing your scalp or sweating excessively for four days. After the fourth day, you must moisturize regularly. Patients need to avoid swimming, saunas, steam rooms, and sunlight for at least 28 days after each treatment.

SMP does not regrow your hair, so it’s not an effective treatment if you want longer or thicker hair on your head. Rather, this approach is best for individuals who want to either mask a small amount of thinning or keep a bald head that still retains the appearance of a hairline.

Speaking with a professional hair restoration specialist is the best way to determine which treatment is best for you. Get a quick assessment at Maxim to learn more about your options and get on the path to satisfying hair restoration.

Hair Restoration Company Offers Tele-Hair Services

MAXIM Hair Restoration Innovates Tele-Hair Consults for Hair Transplants and Hair Restoration

TeleHealth is part of the digital revolution that MAXIM offers as a technologically advanced organization that serves patients suffering from a broad spectrum of hair loss conditions. TeleHealth complies with COVID regulations by limiting exposure. MAXIM promotes ongoing support for existing and new patients by offering a HIPAA-compliant platform and cost-effective solutions for hair restoration consultations, pre and post-operative care which was historically  not available in the industry, at least not via a HIPAA compliant platform.

Introduction: 

MAXIM Hair Restoration, an organization that prides itself in keeping up-to-date with emerging med-tech innovations and using cutting edge technology to advance access to patient care and quality of customer service, has now joined the digital revolution by incorporating TeleHealth services through a HIPAA compliant platform for consultations, patient care, and communication.

MAXIM views patients as a top priority which is why increasing patient access to health care professionals remotely provides a safe, cost-effective, reliable, and convenient platform that does not dilute the quality of Doctor-Patient communications.  

Statistics:

  • According to The American Hospital Association, 76% of hospitals in the US connect with Telehealth services.
  • Home monitoring of chronic diseases is reducing hospital visits by as much as 50% by keeping patients stable through daily monitoring. 

As the TeleHealth sector has evolved, the initial adopters were rural hospitals and clinics followed by urgent care centers. Teladoc is now a multi-billion dollar, publicly-traded TeleHealth company that ratifies the demand and success of this service and sector. 

Recently, partially due to the COVID-19 crisis, elective and cosmetic surgery as well as non-surgical medical aesthetic providers have jumped on the TeleHealth bandwagon. Providers are offering virtual consultations and pre/post-operative care.  

Since HIPAA has temporarily relaxed TeleHealth platform protocols, patients and providers are empowered to choose the best form of communication via phone, SMS/Chat and other messaging systems, video calls via Skype, Zoom or Face Time, inbox messaging, and other vehicles to expedite responsiveness and communication with each exchange in real time. 

The ability to address more patients does not dilute the quality of care, rather it democratizes it, giving back the power for patients to feel comfortable and confident in receiving guidance from their health care providers. Using Telehealth has become a necessary response to the rising effects of Covid-19 safety regulations which prohibit in-person and in-clinic patient visits, an extremely prohibitive process for those in need of non-urgent requests.  

This transitional period of technology and communications is a critical component in solving a variety of health care challenges that go beyond patent communication.   

Telehealth Consultation

Telehealth enables the dismantling of obstacles affecting patients who are actively seeking medical support. It’s an alternative that serves patients with opportunities to overcome mobility-related issues such as transportation and associated costs. Moreover, Telehealth encounters are economically more attractive to patients as they entail lower or no co-pays and other out-of-pocket costs.

From a provider perspective, TeleHealth enables them to target and attract patients beyond their customary radius of let’s say 50 miles or so.  

According to Mac Fadra, CEO of MAXIM Hair Restoration, “We are finding that TeleHealth enables us to attract patients from secondary and tertiary markets who would otherwise hesitate. This serves us well since our clients may need to be in our clinic only on the day of their procedure. Pre and post-operative services could be rendered by providers via TeleHealth as much as possible.”

MAXIM Hair Restoration has pioneered the concept of TeleHair consults and services that are focused on the hair restoration sector. These services are not just limited to provider-patient communication and interaction but extend to our ancillary and administrative staff as well.

Furthermore, TeleHealth is integrated with the EHR, CRM and Nurture systems to capture all patient encounters and communication electronically.

“Real-time consultations whether they are urgent, pre-op, post-op, consultative, or those seeking to be educated without the distraction of an advertisement – all deserve to have ongoing open access to professionals ready to respond to each request. MAXIM seeks to be a part of resolving and changing the paradigm of care as we see it today by improving patient care in all ways possible, beginning with TeleHair and TeleHealth,” added Mr. Fadra.   

MAXIM has locations in Manhattan, New York City; Great Neck and Huntington in Long Island; Parmaus, New Jersey; Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston, Texas; Alexandria, Northern Virginia; and Southern California. Outside the U.S., MAXIM has locations in Manila and Cebu in the Philippines as well as Dubai and Istanbul, Turkey. Call today for a free consultation!

Can I Have a Hair Transplant Done During COVID?

The coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic has significantly impacted our lives in every way – personally and professionally. However, each one of us looks forward to the rebound and return to normalcy. A number of our patients have contacted MAXIM Hair Restoration to have their hair transplant procedure done during this period. However, in compliance with stay-at-home orders and out of an abundance of precaution to protect our staff and patients, we suspended performing procedures and in-office consults in most locations until the government permits to re-open. 

Hair Restoration & Transplant at MAXIM

Most patients are now demanding Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) which is the No Stitch, No Linear Scar hair transplant procedure. People do not want to go through a long recovery process associated with the Strip (FUT) procedure even though one can achieve a higher density with FUT. Coincidentally, FUE is a better procedure to perform in the time of this pandemic because it’s less invasive, involves minimal bleeding, and involves relatively less physical contact compared to FUT and other surgical procedures like (SMP) Scalp Micropigmentation

How Does the Hair Transplant Procedure Work?

Hair transplant or transplantation is a minor surgical procedure that involves taking hair follicles from the back and sides of the head (donor area) and transplanting them to the thinning and balding areas known as the recipient site. The conventional procedure known as Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) involves taking a strip of hair from the back of the head, dissecting it into individual grafts or follicular units, and transplanting them to the recipient site. The donor area is then sutured by the hair transplant surgeon and stitches taken out a week to 10 days thereafter. With the newer and advanced Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure, the hair transplant doctor extracts individual hair grafts, consisting of 1 to 3 hair follicles, from the donor area; then makes recipient sites in the thinning and balding areas, and technicians place the grafts into those sites. At MAXIM, the hair transplant surgeons and technicians use advanced FUE Technology for the harvesting of hair follicles. 

Hair Transplant Procedures Scoring System During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The Journal of the American College of Surgeons has published a scoring method to rate various medical procedures based on their safety. The FUE hair transplant procedure performs very well on this rating scale. Twenty-one factors were identified to rate elective procedures in the current climate of the COVID-19 pandemic. These factors fell into three general categories. A higher score for each factor is associated with an increased risk of COVID-19 transmission to the healthcare team, and/or increased hospital resource use. 

Procedure Factors Score: 11

Amount of resources required during the length of the procedure in an operating room (O.R.). A hair transplant is an outpatient, office-based procedure that does not require an O.R.  It is performed in a minor procedure room. It entails a minimal drain or impact on PPE and other resources. 

Condition Factors Score: 23

Timing of the procedure and whether or not it is urgent. A higher score is generally indicative of less harm to the patient when the procedure is deferred. These factors gauge the impact of surgical deferment in order to integrate time-sensitivity into the prioritization process. 

Patient Factors Score: 16

Known patient factors associated with higher incidences COVID-19 mortality. These may include age, predisposition to certain adverse reactions, the existence of certain medical conditions and disorders, asthma, cardiac or pulmonary issues, etc. 

FUE Hair Transplant Total Score: 50

This is a great score. A higher score, which can range as high as 105, is associated with poorer patient outcomes, increased risk of COVID transmission to the team, and an increased strain on hospital resources. In a similar manner, a lower score can help preserve operation room capacity and the precious supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) for front line workers. 

Patient and Staff Protection During Your Hair Transplant Procedure

When we reopen, we would ensure that all patients and visitors to the office are screened for temperature, travel history, and other medical ailments including cough and cold. We would limit the number of consults and procedures at any given time in the office. We have instituted social distancing in the clinic both between patients and staff in compliance with CDC guidelines. Patients and staff are required to wear masks, gloves, gowns, and other protective gear. We also strongly encourage Virtual consults via our HIPAA-compliant, encrypted TeleHealth platforms. 

Your Hair Transplant Consultation at MAXIM

Virtual Consultations are now available for prospective MAXIM clients as well as existing patients who need follow-up care. These are available primarily through our HIPAA-compliant, encrypted Electronic Health Record (EHR) platform. This will enable prospective clients who live far away from our offices to have a virtual consultation and only have to travel to our office on the day of their hair transplant procedure. 

Rapid Return

An FUE hair transplant procedure enables you to return to your normal working activities within a couple of days of the procedure. FUE is a minimally invasive procedure performed in an office setting under local anesthesia. Moreover, it is natural, permanent, and affordable. Here’s what you can expect in the days and weeks following the procedure: 

  1. Return to normal activities and light exercise after a few days.
  2. More strenuous exercise can resume after 10 days.
  3. Avoid heavy lifting and excessive sweating. 
  4. Resume all normal activities after two weeks. 

Follow up care can be performed virtually or in-clinic depending upon the situation. 

The Cost of a Hair Transplant

At MAXIM, prices are transparent just like our staff and physicians. Prices start at per graft for FUT and per graft for FUE. The minimum price is . Our prices are very competitive with other providers and there are no hidden costs or fees. Zero percent financing, over six months, is available through third-party finance companies.

Too Young To Go Bald

There isn’t a shortage of bald men in the spotlight who fall victim to body-shaming. In fact, there are many campaigns against it. Thus, some organizations and people make efforts to inspire stories about body positivity.

Sadly, these are not enough to stop the anxieties intensified by the digital world. It also cannot stop the growing number of cases of:

  • Mix of genetics
  • Male hormone dihydrotestosterone

Unfortunately, the campaign also can’t stop the stressful lifestyle causing male pattern baldness.

The Number Is Higher Than You Think

In America, over 80 million people have Androgenetic alopecia – a hereditary hair loss. In fact, it starts creeping up on unsuspecting heads of about 25% of American males. Thus, there are suffering from male pattern baldness as early as their late twenties.

Based on a survey (conducted from 2017-2019), more men suffer from male pattern baldness and related disorders. The survey shows that an estimated 140,000 underwent a hair transplant last year.

The Unbelievable Hair Transplant Services Market Size In Houston, Texas

As the influence of hair transplant in Houston climbs up, hair loss concerns escalate too. For the past 10 years in Texas, there is a large figure of people enduring Alopecia. Thus, it ignites the surging demand for hair restoration services as well. That being the case, the market size is expected to increase substantially by 2025.

Its signs point to genetics as the culprit for thinning hair. Aside from that, the weather is also suspected of adding to the higher hair loss rates. Yet, this isn’t the case. What’s driving the industry’s growth is the rise of lifestyle-related skin disorders. Also, the millennial existence contributes heavily to concerns around hair loss. This means that it has to do with high levels of stress.

The First In The History Of Mankind

Men and women are researching to solve their hair loss problems. Thus, they want to look good and fix their insecurities and feel better about themselves. High cases of male pattern baldness drove the demand for hair restoration services. Thus, this cosmetic hair procedure gives hope to what was once believed inevitable.

The evolution of hair transplant surgery doesn’t waste precious time and money. Hair transplant surgery makes it possible to replace the once lost hair. By far, a hair transplant is the only one that will make sure you can always have hair – naturally and permanently. Hence, its breakthrough catapulted its success in many major countries including:

  • United States of America
  • Canada 
  • United Kingdom
  • Turkey
  • Saudi Arabia
  • The Middle East and other markets

Why Does Hair Loss Hit Some Ethnic Groups Harder Than Others?

Genetics controls how people look and also how they are treated. For example, people from the United Arab Emirates and Turkey are more likely to have hair loss. That is why they are becoming the medical Meccas of cosmetic hair procedures. This is because of their ethnicity. People from the Hispanic and Indian communities are more likely to become bald. 

Middle Eastern and Indian Hair Loss

People of Jewish, Arabic, and Indian descent share this pattern of baldness. The early stage of hair miniaturization begins at the front. Then, it slowly progresses backward until the entire head is out of hair. However, there is not much early thinning in the vertex. It’s no surprise that they’re willing to spend money to find treatment. They want solutions that can help restore the rich luster of their original hair. 

Latins and Hispanic Hair Loss

A widow’s peak is considered a mark of beauty. This is the pride of men with Mediterranean and Hispanic backgrounds. Transplante de Cabello is essential if the hairline recedes. Although the degree of baldness varies. Those with greater European-Spanish roots are more likely to be bald.

Men with Latin-American/sub-Saharan genes are luckier to have less male pattern baldness. The receding frontline followed by thinning in the crown. As the frontal hairline continues to recede, the thinning at the crown enlarges. The balding meets in the middle. —creating that V-pattern.

Afro-Caribbean/African-American Hair Loss

African American men with thinning hair impressively rock the looks like a pro. Yet, the pure contrast between the “cool” look and the inability to change hairstyle is obvious. Traction Alopecia is a common cause of hair loss in many Afro-Caribbean and African-Americans. The result is fragile hair above the forehead and the sides. 

Nordic Hair Loss

It’s another particular baldness pattern among Caucasians with Nordic roots. With this type of hair loss pattern, the balding spot starts in the crown. Followed by an insignificant hair loss at the temples. As the temporal hairline recedes, the balding advances towards the back. Thus, it leaves some surviving hair at the center. 

Asian Hair Loss

Southeast Asians have the lowest hair loss rate. Moreover, the majority of them are experiencing it much later in life. Surprisingly, Japan came out on top. The Japanese have a notably high rate of baldness compared to other Southeast Asians. The recession starts at the front and progresses backward until the entire crown has no hair. It affects many men in keeping a youthful and pleasing appearance that Asians are known for.

How To Find The Best Hair Transplant Clinics In Houston, Texas?

Providing up-to-date attention and service demands a team effort. However, not all hair transplant surgeons are created equal. And it is making it hard to pick the best between heavily-marketed doctors. So, here’s how you can take a closer look at what makes an expert in hair restoration.

Surgeon’s Expertise In Hair Transplant in Houston, TX

Look for proper credentials that show necessary accreditations. It’s essential to learn about the number of cases a surgeon performed. To know this, you can review their credentials. Also, don’t judge a surgeon’s expertise based on his years of experience and his age.

Simply, they can handle different complications, if there are any. 

At MAXIM Hair Restoration, our specialists are board-certified. Additionally, they are aesthetically trained hair transplants doctors.

If you’re overly concerned about the scars that go along with FUE, you shouldn’t be, as it leaves no visible linear scars.

Doctor’s Team and Clinical Environment

A hair transplant surgery should be performed on how it should be in a hospital operating room. The best clinics also know that good business management involves having a good team. They need to maintain a polite and positive attitude when interacting with patients. It matters that your prospective surgeon has a good relationship with their team. As the saying goes, “a good team is a reflection of its leadership.” 

For the clinic to stay at the top of the game, it should have features that will stand out in the customer’s mind. The clinic’s physical condition and how well equipped the facility is. The way staff handle your needs should give you an idea of what to expect from your treatment.

Advanced Surgical Technology & Techniques

The art of hair restoration has grown over the years. Ever since it became popular, the techniques and technology continue to advance also. 

To check the quality of a hair transplant clinic, ask about what to expect if you undergo a hair transplant. Also, ask about the modern medical devices they used in the procedure as well devices used in:

  • The harvesting
  • Graft dissection
  • Performing the actual transplant procedure. 

You will have more confidence in knowing the best doctor and clinic if you ask about these things.

In graft dissection, most clinics use loupe magnification. Other clinics use stereo microscopes. Old or new, the wider the methods that doctors perform, the better. 

Choose a clinic that offers FUE. The FUE is the best hair restoration procedure. It gives natural results and has no risks like with other procedures. It’s a blind extraction technique with minimal discomfort and no stitches. So, the postoperative recovery is less restrictive, fast, and leaves no visible scars. 

Although the practice of older techniques doesn’t mean that just because it’s not new, it’s less efficient. There are special cases that will suggest using earlier methods. If a clinic offers it, ask if they have studies that show why it is better for your case.

Hair Transplant Cost and Financing Options in Houston

Hair transplant procedure rates can be intimidating. Some transplant surgeons and clinics have rates that cost an arm and a leg. However, do not get discouraged if you need to have surgery to get your hair back. To give you a rough guide of both the FUE and FUT hair transplant in Houston, TX the costs range from $7,000 and $12,000. Still, the cost will be depending on the number of grafts you need.

There are many ways to pay for a hair transplant. You can use different types of payments, like money, or you can take care of the payment over time. 

Bank loans as an alternative are also useful, but who wants a lump sum before treatment?

If you qualify, financing options are very convenient, such as:

  • Care Credit
  • Green Sky
  • United Medical Credit
  • Lending Club 

The advantage of financing plans is that it gives more freedom to pay over time with low monthly fees. Moreover, if you pay in full for up to six months, you will not have to pay any interest.

How To Know You’re Ready To Give Hair Restoration A Try

Your hair is one of the first things people see when they look at you. Like it or not, your hair is a big part of the image you present to the world every day. If you experience hair loss or hair thinning, it probably happens so gradually that you do not notice it right away. But once you see a difference in your hair line, you may want to consider hair restoration treatment. Here are just some indications that can help you determine if you are ready to give hair restoration a try.

You have hereditary baldness.

ready in hair restoration

Also called Male Pattern Baldness (or Female Pattern Baldness), this type of hair loss usually makes you a good candidate for a hair transplant to transform your appearance and help you look great. With hereditary baldness, there usually is a good-sized area of healthy, thick hair growing around the sides and back of the head. This hair serves as the “donor” area when you have a transplant, and it will likely grow for the rest of your life. People with hair loss due to sickness, medication, or other reasons may be candidates for hair restoration, too. Your hair loss specialist will be able to tell you.

You aren’t past the point of baldness that a transplant can’t help.

The area of donor hair needs to be large and dense enough to provide hair to the areas where you wish to restore hair. It’s important to have realistic expectations for a hair restoration procedure. If you are totally bald or near bald, there are other methods besides hair restoration to consider besides a hair transplant.

You have tried other methods and are dissatisfied with the results and are prepared to make an investment in your hair.

A hair transplant is surgery, albeit minor surgery under local anesthesia. The procedure, anesthesia, and of course the expertise of your surgeon are all factors in the cost of a hair transplant. The results are permanent and can be a total game-changer for your self-esteem and appearance. But it is not cheap compared to a can of foam.

You have patience.

The hair that is transplanted to your hairline or site of thinning hair will not start to grow for several months. Some people choose to shave their heads so that all their hair grows in at the same time, or women may cover their heads with a headband or scarf. By 12 months after the procedure, your hair will have noticeably grown in and you will be able to see how your hair will look from then on!

You do your homework.

Don’t just choose the first hair restoration specialist you see.  Experience and expertise is essential in this very delicate procedure.  Look into the reputation of the practice, credentials of the surgeon, references, and of course, before and after photos. This is not something to take chances with.

Is Hair Transplant Safe?

A safe hair transplant simply is removing a graft of scalp from a spot on the head that has sufficient hair and placing it in a spot where more hair is desired. The spot from which the scalp is removed is the donor site. The recipient site, where new hair will grow, is where the scalp is grafted.

Safe Hair transplant surgery can be conducted in the hospital or at a doctor’s office, either under local or general anesthesia. This will depend on the extent of the surgery that is how many grafts will be made and how long the surgery will take.

So is hair transplant safe? The short answer is “Yes”.  Hair transplants are safe. However, as with any surgical procedure, some risks are involved. The risks associated with hair transplant surgery are minimal and are explained in more detail here.

Safe Hair Transplant: Types of Surgery

Those undergoing hair transplant surgery can expect to undergo one of two techniques.

  • Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS). The surgeon will remove the skin from the patient’s head, usually from the back. The 6-10 inch strip is divided into multiple grafts that are quite small. Each tiny graft contains a few hairs or even just one that will be transplanted into the recipient site.
  • Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). The back of the patient’s head will be shaved and from that spot, the surgeon will remove hair follicles.

It is only the process of hair removal that differs in the two techniques. The grafting is the same. The surgery takes between 4 and 8 hours, though a second surgery might be required if the patient’s hair doesn’t come in as thick as he wished.

Risks

The risks associated with hair transplants are minimal, as previously mentioned. Knowing the risks will allay the patient’s fears and give cause to expect a good and healthy outcome from their hair transplant surgery. Knowing the risks also will promote an honest conversation with your surgeon.

  • Inflammation is normal with hair transplant surgery as it is with all surgeries. Just as the patient’s hair begins to come in, inflammation may occur. However, folliculitis, an infection of the hair follicles is a little more intimidating and cause for concern. If your scalp should become inflamed, your surgeon will prescribe an antibiotic for folliculitis and the inflammation should subside. Cold compresses on the affected area will also have a palliative effect.
  • Slight hair loss. After the surgery, the patient may notice a tiny loss of hair. This is referred to as shock loss. In most cases, the hair loss isn’t permanent.
  • Following the transplant surgery, the patient will find that the head and scalp are tender. This is quite normal. The surgeon may prescribe pain medications and perhaps an antibiotic to ward off possible infection. Also, over the counter anti-inflammatory medications can assist in alleviating the discomfort of a tender scalp, as well as alleviate swelling at the graft site.

Additional Risks

Hair transplant surgery is safe for most people, but there are certain risks that could be unique to some patients. For instance, if the patient is taking prescribed medications like blood thinners or beta-blockers to treat high blood pressure, then this could be cause for concern. This doesn’t mean that hair transplant surgery will be detrimental for that patient, but that the patient’s personal medical history must be taken into account before moving forward.

What Is Hair Replacement?

What is Hair Replacement?

Hair loss may have a negative impact on a person’s appearance and self-esteem. Surgical hair replacement aims to fill in or recreate thinning hairlines and other regions of the scalp where hair loss is visible. Hair loss can affect both men and women. The primary cause of a receding hairline in men is heredity (male pattern baldness). Hormonal modifications, such as menopause among other factors can cause hair thinning and hair loss in women. 

The positive is that the hair growth industry has come a long way and now offers a variety of hair loss therapies and treatments. Hair replacement and hair transplants are the most common. Traditionally, hair replacement constituted hair pieces, hair systems, toupees and wigs.

Hair replacement surgery, on the other hand, is a form of surgery that transplants hair you already have at the back and sides of the head to fill in an area where your hair is thinning. Also, it is a procedure if you have lost a significant amount of hair. There has been a substantial rise in demand for hair replacement surgery. Doctors have been performing this procedure for more than 60 years.  However, the methods they use have changed quite a bit in recent years. To find more about hair replacement surgery, this page is right for you.

What you Should Know About Hair Replacement Surgery?

A hair replacement procedure is a life-changing surgical treatment that helps people regain their confidence. It corrects obvious defects in the thickness and style of your hair, making it a long-term investment in your self-esteem. While hair replacement surgery may not be able to benefit those who are completely bald, there are a variety of hair replacement techniques available that can also be combined with non-surgical solutions. 

Non-surgical Hair Replacement is for you if you want to regain a complete head of hair without undergoing surgery. These natural-looking hair additions, hair systems, hair pieces and extensions are nearly undetectable to touch or sight and are non-invasive, simple, and fuss-free. Hair replacement systems are designed for men who have advanced hair loss or baldness. There are hair extensions that do not need surgery and are virtually undetectable to the naked eye or touch. The Hair Replacement System, a hair weave appropriate for those who only need partial hair additions, is an alternative to hair transplant surgery. 

MAXIM plants to launch an array of non-surgical hair replacement solutions and options that are unrivaled when it comes to hair systems! At MAXIM Hair Restoration, we plan to create hairpieces, wigs and hair systems for people suffering from hair loss and medical disorders using a completely innovative procedure. Per hairpiece, the device is handcrafted and personalized according to the customer’s hair tastes, style, texture and desires.

What is a Hair System?

Synthetic hair or a wig is hand-woven into a certain base cloth, such as lace, to create a hair system. The base is then applied to the person’s head using the desired form of binding (tape or adhesive). After that, sliced and mixed to seal it in. 

Advanced hair replacement allows people with mild to advanced hair loss to drastically alter their look. Anyone, regardless of age, hair color, or degree of hair loss, may wear a hair system. To begin, the hair replacement specialist/stylist will check your hair to see if more hair can be added to give it a fuller look. When using new hairpieces with the right adhesive, there are very few drawbacks. You can also wash, sleep, workout, swim, trim, style, and dye your hair as though it were your real hair. To put it another way, you should practically live your life like you would if you didn’t have it.  How long the hair system would last is impossible to determine. Many aspects influence this, like the foundation material and how you maintain the hairpieces.

In addition, it may take six to eight weeks to tailor-make the hair pieces after an initial consultation. The front hairline will be nearly undetectable, and you will be able to shave, swim, and participate in sports as normal. You’ll get 15 weeks of wear on average before you need a bolster injection to keep the system  in tip-top shape.

Types of Hair Replacement Surgery and how it works.

Today, hair replacement surgery is performed right in the doctor’s office.  The surgeon cleans your scalp and injects a local anesthetic to numb the area of your head.  Along with your doctor, you will have chosen one of two types of hair transplant, either follicular unit transplantation (FUT) or follicular unit extraction (FUE.)

The entire process takes anywhere from four to eight hours, depending on the number of grafts.  Following the surgery, your scalp may be sensitive. You may need to take pain medication and either an antibiotic or an anti-inflammatory for a few days, which your doctor will prescribe.  Also, you’ll need to wear a bandage over your scalp for at least a day or two.  

1. Follicular unit transplantation (FUT or strip method)

For the FUT method, the surgeon will remove a six- to 10-inch strip of skin from the back of your head. After that, the surgeon then sets the strip aside and sews the scalp closed, allowing the area to be immediately hidden by the hair surrounding it.  Next, the strip is dissected into 1,000 to 3,000 small grafts. Each with one or just a few hair follicles, depending on your hair type, color, quality, and the size of the transplant area. The surgeon sutures the donor area to seal the wound from where the hair is extracted. 

2. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

First, the hair is shaved from the back of the head. Our surgeons or clinicians harvest and extract hair follicles one at a time. The affected area heals with only small dots, which your existing hair covers. From this point forward, both the FUT and FUE procedures are the same. After the grafts are prepared, the surgeon cleans and numbs the area in which the hair will be transplanted. They use a scalpel or needle for each recipient site. FUE does not result in linear scars. 

Hair replacement surgery takes around a day. So, you shouldn’t have to wait overnight. If you’re treating a wide area, you can need two or three sessions spaced a few years apart. Your MAXIM surgeon and staff will instruct you on how to take care of your grafts and scalp. You will have a spray to use to aid hair growth and recovery. 

What to expect after Hair Replacement?

Following hair replacement surgery, most people are likely to return to work within a few days. For the first two weeks after your surgery, you must be very cautious with your transplanted hair on the scalp. If not cared for, the grafts could get damaged. To stop scarring, it’s best to keep the workouts to a minimum for the first month. Follow all post-op instructions meticulously. 

A few weeks following the hair restoration treatment, the transplanted hair will start to fall out. However, they will begin to regrow after four months.  On average, most patients experience 60% of new hair growth after six to nine months. Improved density is apparent after a year. Nevertheless, you may need another procedure at a later date if you continue losing hair or if you decide you want thicker hair.

For a few days after hair replacement surgery, it’s not abnormal to have a strong, achy, and swollen scalp. There will be temporary scabbing where the hair is transplanted. Also, there will be a single scar or a series of very small scars in the donor area that generally fade over time. 

How much does it cost?

Hair replacement surgery can be expensive. When seeking a hair replacement other considerations to remember include the cost of transport, the drugs needed following the transplant, and the recovery period. However, the average cost of a hair replacement varies greatly depending on the quantity of hair, but it typically ranges from $6,000 to $20,000. There are no insurance plans to protect it. However, 0% financing is available at MAXIM Hair Restoration. Also, talk with a professional and competent surgeon at MAXIM Hair Restoration who performs the procedure. It’s a good idea to talk to the specialist about the benefits, risks, potential complications and recovery times. 

If you decide to go the non-surgical route, the price of your hair system can vary depending on where you buy it, whether it’s ready-to-wear, and whether the coverage is partial or absolute. A limited coverage hair system can cost $800 to $1,200, while full coverage options can cost up to $2,500 or even higher. Premium systems are much higher. Monthly maintenance can be in the $200 range.

The Benefits Of Micropigmentation

Looking for an ideal solution to thinning hair, pattern baldness, alopecia, and irregular hair loss? Then you might want to consider scalp micropigmentation, which is rapidly gaining popularity worldwide as an affordable alternative to hair transplants.

micropigmentation

Micropigmentation is a non-invasive hair loss procedure that uses micro-needles to deposit pigment into the scalp, replicating hair follicles and restoring thinning hair to resemble its previous density.

Micropigmentation offers numerous benefits, including:

scalp micropigmentation

It doesn’t require surgery. 

No surgical incisions are necessary, which means there’s no scarring and no risk of infection.

It’s safe. 

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is performed under strict sterile conditions by specially-trained and certified hair restoration experts at MAXiM.

It’s painless. 

A local anesthetic is used to numb the scalp during the procedure, so you won’t feel a thing.

It’s a faster procedure. 

The whole process is completed in just a couple of sessions. That amounts to only a few hours. Also, because micropigmentation is non-invasive, healing time is limited to only a few days. In fact, most people who choose this procedure are back to work within two days. There are no dressings to change, or stitches to be concerned with. All that is needed is thorough cleaning in the following weeks.

It’s affordable and cost-effective. 

Scalp micropigmentation is only a fraction of the cost when compared to hair transplants. And because it’s a permanent solution to hair loss, there is no need to waste money on ineffective tonics or shampoos. Neither do you need to spend a penny on post-procedural medications or care products.

It looks more natural. 

Unlike scalp tattooing, which uses regular ink, scalp micropigmentation uses advanced medical grade pigment for a more natural look. The pigments are matched to both existing hair color, as well as skin tone, for the most realistic look achievable.

It requires minimal maintenance. 

Right after the procedure, you can return to your daily activities. Plus, because there is no real hair, there is no need for expensive hair products, nor is there extra time wasted on styling.

It’s longer lasting. 

Scalp micropigmentation provides a long-term solution for hair loss. The results – including color and strength – should last four to eight years at which point, you can undergo an enhancement procedure to restore any fading.

It hides imperfections. 

If you have scars from a past injury or hair transplant, micropigmentation creates a bit of camouflage for these imperfections. It can also help to mask a receding hairline, making hair appear fuller.

At MAXiM scalp micropigmentation can be fully customized to your individual needs, and your scalp and hair color. You can get the desired density and look, giving you the appearance of a full hair line. Plus, you’ll recognize immediate results following the first of two treatments.

Whatever is causing your hair loss, MAXiM Hair Restoration has hair transplant and plastic surgeons who artfully create an attractive hairline for our clients every day.

Your Top Questions About Hair Transplant Answered

Are you wondering about any unanswered questions regarding hair transplants? According to the American Hair Loss Association, 35 million men around the world experience baldness, and in the United States alone, 40% of patients experiencing hair loss are women. For many, hair transplant surgery has become the choice to overcome hair loss. It is an effective method that provides natural results and involves a simple procedure. It has practically no downtime and it is very safe.

Having questions about hair transplants, meaning transplanting hair from one part of the scalp to the area where the hair is missing isn’t new. Many people are curious about the procedure and want to get familiar with all the details. It is becoming an increasingly safe and effective method for dealing with hair loss. Plus, it is being performed globally which makes it even more of a trustworthy procedure. Let’s begin with some history about hair restoration surgery.

What is the History of Hair Replacement Surgery?

Hair transplantation first appeared in Germany in the mid-1800s. Modern hair transplant surgery has come a very long way since its introduction to the United States in the 1950s. The very first hair replacement surgery was done in New York City by Dr. Norman Orentreich. This occurred after many obstacles and opposition by the medical community, which did not agree with the initial submissions of his paper. It became a landmark study that was published in 1959.

Dr. Orentreich coined the term “donor dominance” to expand on the basic concept of hair transplantation. It explained that transplanted hair continues to show the same characteristics of the hair from where it came from. To explain another way, hair that was taken from the rear or side of the head, which is also known as the permanent zone, would continue to grow the same way as when it was in its original place.

The study concludes that donor dominance shows the reason why hair located in the donor area, which does not experience hair loss, continues to grow after following the transplantation to the bald regions of the scalp.

Modern techniques, coupled with the science supporting transplant development, are providing a more natural look and feel for hair transplant recipients. It has become a common method for dealing with hair loss for both men and women. Not only for hair on the scalp but even for eyebrows, beard and mustache hair transplants. 

Today, a hair transplant is a natural choice for those seeking to regain a more youthful, healthy look. For those who can only think “toupee” “hair pieces” or “hair plugs,” think again. Hair restoration is an innovative technique that has proved to be the most effective in regaining hair as you once had it.

The following are some questions about hair transplant and their answers.

What is hair transplant surgery?

A hair transplant is a minor surgical procedure that involves removing hair from an area of the head that has ample hair – usually the sides or back of the scalp – and then placing those hair follicles in the thinning and balding areas where more hair is desired. Over time, the hair follicles take root and grow, filling in the areas of the scalp that have lost hair. The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia and takes several hours. It involves a fairly easy recovery and very little downtime. Patients do not experience tremendous pain and most don’t have any complications. The result is natural hair in areas where hair had been lost. 

Can women go bald like men?

Men and women are both affected by baldness or thinning hair. Men are more genetically prone to baldness, though ironically, baldness is passed down through one’s genes. Both men and women can lose their hair and even go bald, but unlike men, balding for a woman is primarily related to hormones. Women lose hair due to hormonal changes, and they seldom go totally bald, but only experience thinning. Alopecia areata is an auto-immune disease that attacks the hair follicles, causing hair loss. While rare, it can cause baldness in both men and women. Some women experience temporary hair loss after pregnancy. This, however, is a temporary state that usually goes back to normal after their hormones regain balance. Another reason why some women may experience hair loss is due to extreme hairstyles that pull on the hair and eventually cause the hair follicle to get damaged.

What type of patient most often gets hair transplant surgery?

Statistics gathered from the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery indicate that a little more than 84% of balding men are or at have some point considered hair transplant surgery.

In comparison, women who choose hair replacement surgery to deal with hair loss come in at 15.3 percent. The greatest number of men who are deciding to take advantage of hair transplant surgery are between the ages of 30 and 39 years old although this has expanded to the 25 to 55 year age group with an increasing number of younger and older men seeking hair transplants. Women who are choosing the surgery most often are between the ages of 39 and 49 years old. 

What does the procedure entail?

Hair transplant surgery is rather straightforward and quick. It is performed in a doctor’s office or clinic setting, and for most patients, the surgery lasts several hours. Each client is different as far as the extent of their hair loss, and their viable donor site. Depending on the number of grafts to be transplanted, more than one hair restoration procedure may be required. Your doctor or clinician will give you a timeline and detailed plan during the initial consultation. The hair restoration surgery might be conducted under local anesthetic, which is perfectly normal and it is the most common way it is performed. However, some patients may be completely anesthetized, meaning under general anesthesia so that they will sleep through the procedure. This is usually the case for patients who might be very nervous or may have other special needs. Commonly, it is an outpatient surgery and the person will be able to go home afterward. It is strictly advisable not to drive immediately following the procedure. 

After the procedure, the patient will be given an antibiotic ointment for them to apply after washing the area. It is important that the patient follows aftercare instructions to make sure the procedure is effective and doesn’t have any complications. The aftercare is simple, you are responsible for ensuring that the area stays clean, free from crusty build-ups and that you watch for signs of infection such as inflammation, redness, or pain. There is practically no downtime after the procedure, some people return to work within a couple of days and don’t notice a difference in the way they feel, which is a very positive result. 

Is Hair Transplant Surgery safe?

Hair transplant surgery is considered a safe procedure, however, as with any surgery, there can be risks. To minimize those risks and potential complications, a patient should have a conversation with their healthcare professional. Speak with the hair transplant surgeon concerning the risks that are involved and be sure to cover the issues that are particular to your case. Each person is different, so it is important that you find out what applies to you. Be sure to provide a list of medications, both over-the-counter and prescribed that you’re taking as well as supplements. Additionally, your hair transplant doctor/clinician will take a detailed health history to find out if you’re fit for surgery.

Is the hair transplant procedure affordable?

If your reasons for choosing hair transplant surgery are purely cosmetic, then most insurance companies won’t pay for it. If the surgery is due to an accident or injury, then the insurance company might underwrite the surgery but it would need to be pre-approved. You will have to take into consideration the cost of other solutions that you might implement to restore, control or camouflage your hair loss. People have to take into account all the products, wigs, hair systems, and other methods that they have used for years and examine the costs associated with those products. It is all relative, some people think is well worth having natural hair and being able to feel their best. Overall, the price of the procedure is competitive with other procedures as you would normally find in the healthcare industry.

Does it really work?

Transplanted hair falls out within a few weeks of the procedure which can be alarming to the patient; but the fallout is normal. New hair will grow in its place within as little as four months. It takes six to twelve months to see meaningful results. It is part of the normal hair cycle where it sheds and grows back again. In conclusion, yes, hair restoration surgery is very effective.
