Until it happens to you, it’s hard to realize how emotionally and mentally damaging hair loss can be. Because hair is such a fundamental part of our self image, even losing small chunks can be traumatizing and can ruin our self-confidence forever. You may have tried everything to get your hair back – to no avail.
When creams and medication have let you down, doctors will usually recommend alternative hair loss procedures. Different procedures such as grafting, transplants, and lasers are all very common and tend to be pretty safe. We have provided an extensive list of the procedures below for your benefit:
Hair Grafting: Hair grafting is especially common among men who suffer from male-pattern baldness. In this procedure, the dermatological surgeon will remove multiple sections of your scalp that still have hair and divide them up to be distributed. Then, they will apply varying amounts of graft to different areas of your scalp to give the appearance of a full head of hair. This procedure will require several sessions, with two to four months in between, and full recovery may take even longer.
Scalp Reduction: In this procedure, a surgeon will remove the non-hair bearing skin from the scalp in order to stretch the area that has hair across the head. Common side effects of this surgery include headaches and itchiness, but this generally can be solved with over the counter aspirin.
Platelet-Rich Plasma: Though commonly used for joint surgery, PRP can be used to treat hair loss. In order to separate the platelets and plasma, the patient’s blood is separated in a centrifuge. Then, the plasma is injected into areas of the scalp where hair loss is most prominent to stimulate cell growth and repair blood vessels. This process can be repeated for up to two years and is generally effective; however, it can be costly. Each injection ranges from $500 to $1,000.
