Our Amazing Hair Transplant Results

Hair Transplant Introduction

Hair loss and balding are often an unexpected and unwanted part of life. Fortunately, with recent advances in technology, hair loss can be slowed or stopped, and there are remedies for thinning hair and baldness. Hair transplants are an effective, permanent solution for replacing hair in suitable candidates. Hair transplant techniques have been in use since the early 1950s. However, unlike early procedures that were known to yield hair in clumps, or which grew at odd angles, hair transplant techniques today have evolved to highly precise procedures that use much smaller implants and produce uniform, natural looking hair in areas that have lost hair.

Out with the old – in with the new!

Gone are the days of unnatural looking hair transplants that resemble rows of corn or the unsightly doll’s head look. Using today’s most advanced and refined techniques, the specialist at PascualMD achieve results that look so natural, even your hair dresser won’t be able to tell you’ve had hair restoration surgery.

How Hair Transplants Work

To understand how hair transplants work, it helps to understand some basic hair anatomy. A typical hair consists of the shaft, which is the part you can see above the skin, and the hair follicle beneath the surface. Hair tends to grow in small bundles, which are called follicular units. A follicular unit consists of 1-4 hair follicles with full-sized hairs, 1-2 fine vellus hairs, sebaceous glands, a small muscle, nerves, and blood vessels. Each follicular unit is surrounded by a band of collagen, and these units can be seen as independent structures when a cross-section is viewed under a microscope. At the surface, follicular units appear as a tiny group of hairs growing together. Hair transplants relocate intact follicular units from a safe donor zone at the back and sides of the head to balding or thinning areas. The follicles harvested from the donor areas are not genetically inclined to go bald, and once they are transplanted, they will continue to produce hair throughout a patient’s lifetime.

Types of Transplants

A variety of hair transplant techniques exist, and two of the more popular techniques today are what are known as micro-minigrafting and follicular unit transplants. Both of these processes can be done by dissecting a small strip of hair follicles from the donor site. Follicular unit transplants can also be harvested in a process called follicular unit extraction (FUE), wherein a one millimeter or smaller diameter punch is used to remove individual follicular units. When harvesting follicles from a strip, the key difference between micro-minigrafting and follicular unit transplants is that the micro-mini grafts are hand dissected into minigrafts of one to six hairs with skin between the follicles, whereas the follicular unit method takes the strip under a microscope to remove interfollicular hairless skin and dissect individual follicular units containing one to four hairs.

Recovery and Results

The scalp contains a large number of vessels, and immediately after the transplantation, the surrounding tissue begins nourishing the transplanted follicles. You should be able to return to work and most normal activities the day following your procedure, but should refrain from strenuous exercise and heavy lifting until any non-absorbable sutures in the donor site are removed in 7 to 12 days. As healing begins, some crusts may develop at the base of the grafts. After several days these can be gently removed while shampooing. Most transplanted hairs will be shed between 2 to 4 weeks after surgery, but the follicles remain, and hair that has been transplanted may require as long as 3 to 5 months to begin growing. Once hair growth begins, there will be a progressive cosmetic improvement, which will continue for up to 12 to 15 months after surgery.

  • So it has been almost 6 months since my last review and slightly longer since my Vaser Hi-Def procedure from Dr Jeffrey LaGrasso as Pascual MD in Aventura. Still very happy I did the procedure, very happy with the outcome and glad I did it. The facility was extremely clean, I felt safe and the doctor made me feel like he had everything under control…
