Determining Your Hair Restoration Goals

September 14, 2020

So, you’re ready to get a hair transplant. Good call! Hair transplants have proven to help both men and women regrow lost hair. They’ve been well-studied and have shown to offer fantastic results for most types of hair loss. However, you may be wondering what types of results you can expect with your hair transplant. To figure this out, you must discuss your hair restoration goals with a qualified hair transplant surgeon.

What Are My Hair Restoration Goals?

Different patients have different hair restoration goals in mind when they contact Best Hair Transplant. Frequently, this will depend on the severity of their hair loss. Age, sex, gender, family history, and more may also be factors.

Your hair restoration goals are a personal preference. However, most of our patients desire to regain as much of their lost hair as possible. That’s an understandable hair restoration goal to have. After all, who wouldn’t want to regrow the hair they had in their youth?

To determine your hair restoration goals, you must ask yourself a few questions. Why you are considering hair restoration? Have you tried other options that have failed or whose results were less than you had hoped for? Are you doing this for yourself to improve your internal self-image and self-esteem? Or, are you simply trying to improve your look by filling in patchy spots?

Think long and hard about these questions. Doing so will help you determine your level of dedication and commitment. Additionally, thoughtfully considering your hair restoration goals will help you prepare for the steps you will be taking in the near future. Of course, your hair restoration doctor will be able to help you determine the best course of action to achieve your goals and restore your lost hair.

Are My Hair Restoration Goals Realistic?

Deciding if your hair restoration goals are reachable has to do with the state of your hair loss. Additionally, you must consider the lengths to which you’re willing to go, the funds you’re willing to expend, and how much time you’re able to put in.

For example, if funds are tight and you can’t afford a hair transplant, you may have issues achieving your hair restoration goals. There are other options to consider outside of hair transplantation. However, transplants are the most effective means of restoring and regrowing lost hair.

Additionally, you must ask how much time and effort you’re willing to put into restoring your hair. Are you ready to go all the way? Are you committed to making hair growth and natural hair care a number one priority in your life? Will you put it on the back burner or get too busy to keep your hair regimen up to par? These are all important things to consider.

After all, achieving your hair restoration goals will not come suddenly. This is a process. And one that will last a lifetime. A transplant can deliver powerful, drastic results. However, it’s not an end-all solution to hair loss. Much like taking care of your teeth, you must take care of your hair in the long term. You must maintain a healthy lifestyle, avoid stress whenever possible, and you may need to take Finasteride and/or Minoxidil.

Additionally, it may be best for you to have more than one hair transplant or one type of hair transplant. You may benefit from one or the other or both. And you may need to have an additional transplant later in life to maintain your results.

Options to Achieve Your Hair Restoration Goals

There are many ways to achieve your hair restoration goals at Best Hair Transplant in Redondo Beach. While we recommend utilizing both Finasteride and Minoxidil in most cases, these drugs may not be enough to see the results you’re hoping for. For this reason, we offer two different hair transplant procedures. Additionally, we offer the Capillus RX 312 laser hair cap. Below, you can see the differences, benefits, and applications of each of these hair restoration modalities.

Laser Hair Therapy (LLLT):

Low-Level Laser Therapy is a convenient option to help you achieve your hair restoration goals. At Best Hair Transplant in Redondo Beach, we offer patients the Capillus RX 312 laser hair restoration cap. This is a fantastic option for those with a lower budget or anyone looking to avoid surgery. It can be used in combination with a transplant or by itself. Additionally, the Capillus laser cap is great for a guy or gal on the go. It only takes 6 minutes a day to begin regrowing your lost hair.

You can purchase the Capillus RX 312 here. However, before making your purchase, we recommend consulting with a hair restoration professional to ensure you’re a candidate for LLLT.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE):

A Follicular Unit Extraction is a great option to help you achieve your hair restoration goals. In this procedure, hair grafts are removed from the back of your head. Then, they are transplanted into areas where you’re experiencing hair loss. FUE is a great option for patients who still have a large amount of hair on the back of their heads. Additionally, FUE is preferred by many who wish to avoid having a scar.

Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT):

A Follicular Unit Transplant is another great option to help you achieve your hair restoration goals. Unlike FUE, a FUT procedure is performed by removing a follicle-rich section of the skin on the back of your head. Next, the grafts are sectioned apart and then transplanted into areas where you wish to regrow lost hair. Patients may prefer FUT to FUE if they desire maximum fullness and/or require a large number of grafts to achieve their hair restoration goals.

In Summation

In the end, these decisions and more will be left to you and your hair transplant doctor to determine. However, we suggest being as honest with yourself as possible when it comes to your commitment to hair restoration. Don’t bite off more than you can chew and don’t expect drastic results if you aren’t willing to fully commit to your doctor’s recommendations.
