I am interested in getting a hair transplant. I see that you have different locations. Where exactly are your offices and are hair transplants performed at all locations?
I am 27 years old female. I am now 15 days after hair transplant from strip excision in the frontal portion of my head. At 14 days, I picked my scabs off. there was no bleeding but hair came out with scab. My question is that whether i have harmed my hair graft and whether it will harm the overall result making it poor.
Hi Dr. Epstein:
I had FUT hair transplant surgery in the front portion of my head. After 14 days, I removed them some while combing. The wound scabs came out with small hairs. My question is whether the grafts inserted are permanent now and whether the hair which came out at the grafts. Please answer my question. Thank You.
I’ve had minigrafts that are unaesthetic, and have been told that a graft excision with suturing will generally give a better result than FUE extraction, since a graft excision removes the underling scar tissue as well as the plug. In addition, the shape of the follicles in scar tissue are often distorted, making extraction difficult and leading to more transaction (damage to follicles). Is this true?
I have a hook nose. Can you explain how this is fixed with rhinoplasty?
I have some hair loss around my ears as a result of my facelift surgery. Is this something that can be improved with a hair transplant and how would it be done?
What sort of doctor should I look for to perform my hair transplant? Should the doctor have any special qualifications or are all doctors qualified to perform hair transplants?
Hi Dr. Epstein:
Seven days after my frontal hair transplant there were a few scabs left on my forehead, so I tried to extricate them gingerly with a comb. When I removed two of the scabs, a tiny, noticeable drop of blood–which seemed smaller than a pin head–formed. Now the area where those two scabs were is pinkish in color. Is seven days after surgery enough time to remove these scabs without endangering/losing the hair grafts?
Thank you, Dr. and have a nice day.
Hi, I was born with a mild case of ichthyosis and when I run my comb through my hair I get flakes of skin coming off my scalp. I was wondering with this disease, will it block the hair follicle from transplanting into the scalp and would you be able to perform such a transplant with my disease? Thank you.
Once you have the hair transplant, how long will the hair last?
