Losing hair on one’s head can be extremely devastating to one’s self-esteem. The most common cause of hair loss in the USA is androgenetic (also known as female- and male-pattern) alopecia. While we have several good medical therapies to treat this condition, sometimes it is not enough.
Hair transplantation offers an excellent surgical option for those patients who want to something more than what medical treatments can offer. Advanced Dermatology has highly-trained and very experienced hair transplant providers who can provide you with the best possible results. Schedule your appointment today, and get back your confidence in your hair.
Q: Does insurance cover hair transplantation?
A: Most insurances consider hair transplantation to be a cosmetic procedure and therefore do not provide financial coverage. Given the complexity and expertise involved to achieve optimal results, this is the ideal situation where “money spent is money earned”. There is an entire team of specialized professionals dedicated to getting you the best results.
Q: What is the procedure and recovery like?
A: Hair transplantation is a procedure performed under local anesthesia in an outpatient setting, either in the office or an outpatient surgical center. It involves transfer of hair (“grafts”) from a non-balding location (“donor site”) into the balding locations (“recipient site”) to help regain a thicker head of hair. Final results take up to a full year before determining a successful outcome, so patience is required. Postoperative instructions include rest, minimal pain control, and allowing the sites to heal.
Q: How do I know if my doctor knows what he is doing?
A: In 1992 the International Board of Hair Restoration Surgery was formed to disseminate knowledge of hair transplantation to qualified surgeons. Several years later, an International Board formed to continuously examine and keep up-to-date hair transplant professionals. Be sure to ask your Advanced Dermatology provider about their experience at your appointment, don’t wait until it’s too late.
Dr. Matt Leavitt, founder of ADCS, has more than 25 years of experience in hair restoration surgery. He has lectured both nationally and internationally on the subject, authored several books and textbook chapters and received numerous awards, including the Golden Follicle.
