Dr. Kiely offers hair transplant procedures for the residents of Towson, MD.
What Is a Hair Transplant?
A hair transplant is a medical procedure designed to help people who are experiencing baldness in certain areas. In this surgical procedure, hair follicles are removed from a particular area and replanted in the area where hair is needed. The transplanted hair should take root in its new location and flourish, giving the recipient his own natural hair where he wants it most.
What Are the Procedures for Hair Transplantation?
This procedure is not invasive. Hair is selected from another part of the patient’s body, known as the donor area. This hair tends to be resistant to balding. The hair is removed and grafted onto the person’s scalp or another area where hair has begun to thin or bald. The patient will be given a mild anesthetic to ensure minimum discomfort.
How Do I Know What Treatment Is the Best Option?
Deciding the best treatment for male pattern baldness is a personal choice, although you should discuss all of your options with your doctor before making a final decision. Hair transplantation is a good option because it utilizes your own hair. The procedure itself is minimally invasive and should not need to be repeated. However, depending on the patient’s age, the extent of the baldness and the amount of donor hair available, this is not always the best option available to you. After getting advice from your doctor, you should weigh your options carefully.
