Hair transplantation in San Francisco is a minor outpatient procedure that includes taking hairs from donor areas such as the back and sides of the head and then transplanting the hairs to other areas that are thinning or balding. The hairs removed from the donor area are not susceptible to baldness and will continue growing for the lifespan of the patient.

Hair transplantation is commonly an outpatient procedure at hair replacement clinics in San Francisco because it only deals with the epidermis and the dermis-the outermost layers of the skin. These are the layers that contain the roots of the hairs. Contrary to what many believe, you don't have to shave your entire head to have a hair transplantation. The only area that is shaved is the hairs that are transplanted.

Once the hairs begin to grow, they will continue growing for the course of your life. Typically, this growth process begins approximately three months after the procedure. Final coverage is obvious within eight to 12 months after the procedure. The hair donor area gets sutured closed after the hair transplantation process is finished, leaving a fine line scar.

Hair loss and the causes of hair loss come in many forms. However, 95% of hair loss is due to a condition known as androgenetic alopecia, otherwise known as male pattern baldness. Several conditions lead to this condition: a genetic predisposition to hair loss, the presence of the male hormone called dihydrotestosterone, and age.

The average person loses approximately 100 hairs every day. These hairs often grow back a few months later. It is only when hair loss exceeds the new hair growth that baldness results. However, once you start losing hair, it is a progressive condition that will continue for one's entire life.

Knowing that You Are Set for a Hair Transplantation Procedure
A hair transplant should not be entered into flippantly. It should not be treated as though you are getting a haircut or even a tattoo. It is a surgical procedure and you should be certain that all of your questions have been thoroughly answered before undergoing hair replacement surgery.

One factor to consider before undergoing a hair replacement procedure is your age. Generally people in their teens or early twenties may not be good candidates for the surgery because their pattern of hair loss may not be fully established. As a result, a procedure done today may not address the *needs for the future when their hair loss matures.

Density, donor area stability, scalp laxity, emotional maturity, and risk of extensive hair loss are all factors that need to be considered before undergoing a hair replacement procedure.

Essentials to Think About Before Getting a Hair Replacement in San Francisco

  • If you have diabetes, hair transplants should not affect your health adversely. However, the hair may have a slightly slower rate of regrowth.
  • Hereditary Angioedema, a condition that causes swelling in the throat/larynx area, can be controlled during surgery for hair replacement with Prednisone, a medication that reduces swelling.
  • If you have a high forehead, hair transplantation can reduce it, leaving your forehead with a more natural appearance.
  • If your scalp is tight, it might limit the number of grafts that are able to be obtained in a single procedure.
  • Most people should expect 90% or more of all transplanted hair to grow. However, if the procedure is performed in an area of scar tissue-such as from a surgery-it is more common for approximately 70% of the hairs to grow.
  • Only an individual's own hair can be used for hair transplanting. You aren't able to use synthetic hair nor another hair from another individual.

Incisions Dilemma: Stitches or Staples
There are two ideas of thought regarding how to close incisions after a hair replacement procedure. While it is stated that stitches are more comfortable for the patient, some doctors believe that staples are the more effective method.

Staples are used due to the fact that they don't react with the skin and therefore cause much less inflammation. Another reason for staples is that they are separate rather than continuous like stitches. This is believed to cause minimal interruption of the blood flow. The combination of less swelling and more blood flow equals a faster healing process. Furthermore, staples are less damaging to the hair follicles which is critically important.

Though staples may be slightly more uncomfortable after the surgery, you can always take some pain medication. However, there is no reversing any adverse effects caused by using stitches.

Research Makes the Difference in Finding a Good Hair Transplant Doctor in San Francisco
A successful hair transplant procedure in San Francisco, including the smaller neighborhoods of Barbary Coast, Diamond Heights, Eureka Valley, Excelsior, Fisherman's Wharf and Glen Park, can create results for the rest of your life that are so natural in appearance that even hair stylists aren't able to identify them. But choosing the right hair restoration procedure and clinic is critically important. In order to choose the right one for you, follow these three steps:

  • Learn everything you can about the hair implantation procedure. When done right, it can restore a full and natural look.
  • Meet with others who have had the procedure done. Check out online discussion forums and social communities. Read about the experiences of others, view their photos, and read their advice columns. Many patient-created websites exist online that document their journeys step by step.
  • Research and select an excellent hair transplant clinic. Choose your physican carefully as you want the results to last your entire lifetime.

When selecting a hair transplant company in San Francisco, remember that cheaper is not necessarily better. If the clinic is more cost-friendly, you will want to take extra precautions to ensure that they are just as qualified as the more expensive clinic. Be sure to check the credentials of both the clinic and the staff before going ahead with the surgery.

Don't be afraid to ask how long they've been in business or how many transplants they have performed. Also, be sure to speak with former clients so that you can see their results. There are clinics available that specialize in affordable hair transplants in order to help those who cannot afford the more expensive clinics. But it's important to be sure you're not sacrificing quality and expertise for a cheaper price.

If you are bothered by hair loss and have been diagnosed as a candidate for hair transplantation surgery, yet you are worried regarding the price, there are a few factors to consider. What are your monthly and yearly costs of prescription or over the counter hair loss treatments? Over a lifetime, they may equal more than the price of a hair transplant procedure. Remember that a hair transplant procedure is permanent. Furthermore, no maintenance is required.

One method of lowering the cost of your hair transplant procedure is to be realistic about your expectations. Though it would be nice to have a full head of hair again as you did in your late teens or early twenties, that might not be realistic. Discuss with your doctor how to achieve a more natural look rather than worry about thickness. This will lower your overall price yet still give you back some of the hair you've lost over the years.

Make Sure Your Hair Transplantation Quote Is Reliable
There are a wide range of costs from one hair transplant clinic to another in San Francisco. So before you quickly choose the cheapest clinic based on the initial quote they give you, make sure that their estimate is really accurate.

First of all, question the hair transplant company regarding the specific number of follicles they are estimating you will need transplanted. The number of follicles used determines the price you will pay. Lower quotes mean few follicles will be transplanted. So if you are only looking for a minor improvement in the thickness of your hair overall, then a small amount of follicles will be enough. But if you want a noticeable difference, you may want to reconsider. An inexpensive hair transplant won't actually be a bargain if in the end you are disappointed with the results.

Last of all, you may want to think about whether or not the quote is accurate. Some hair transplant companies will purposefully quote you a much cheaper cost simply to get your business. Once you commit to the procedure, however, the physician may up the overall price by explaining to you how much happier you would be with more follicles.

The most effective course of action when you are looking for a hair transplant company is to discuss your particular goals with the physician and then determine which company will meet those goals for the best price.

Hair replacement patients in San Francisco have their choice of several services at local hair replacement clinics. Each patient may have special needs or require specific types of care.

The following is a general overview of the hair replacement procedures available:

Follicular Unit Grafting Hair Replacement
This is the most modern, state-of-the-art hair transplant procedure. Hair grows in follicular units which are groupings of one to three and sometimes four hairs. Grafts are cut individually under a microscope and then transplanted. As many as 3000 grafts can be transplanted during a single procedure. A typical procedure lasts anywhere from three to six hours. (This process is also known as strip excursion.)

If you have an advanced degree of hair loss, a second procedure can follow the original procedure a minimum of five months afterwards.

Hair Regrowth Medications / Hair Loss Prevention Medications
Many medications that are FDA approved treat hair loss. Minoxidil by Rogaine is a topical medication that is applied twice daily. Finasteride by Propecia is a pill for men only that can be taken once daily. These medications can slow down the progression of hair loss. However, their effectiveness is limited.

Laser Hair Transplants in San Francisco
This refers to a laser being used to make holes or slits for the grafts to be inserted into. The lasers create holes by simply vaporizing tissue. This process must be administered under local anesthesia.

FUE (scarless) Grafting Rrocedure

The drawback to this procedure are that in can't be used with patients that have curly hair, fine hair, or hair of certain color. Secondly, due to a risk of surrounding hair loss, the total number of grafts that can be harvested are limited.

Nonsurgical Hair Replacement and Regrowth
This process if a non-surgical hair replacement technique that involves creating an undetectable matrix of crisscrossing real human hair into the spiraling crown area of your head in a way that makes it practically untraceable.

Fundamental Ways To Resolve Conflict with San Francisco Hair Replacement Companies
A hair transplant procedure will usually proceed just fine with no complications, especially when you carefully select a qualified hair transplant company from your area of San Francisco who has a history of customer satisfaction.

The most effective way to end conflict is to discuss openly with the physician or office assistant. Most hair transplant companies in San Francisco are staffed by professionals who have a vested interest in keeping their customers happy.

  • Don't wait to air your concerns. By doing this, you may head off any potential problems before they even start.
  • Review the hair transplant contract specifications with your physician and try to verbally resolve any problems in person.
  • Document your complaints and concerns in writing. Take photos if you are anxious about the hair transplant itself.
  • Set a target date for resolution, and tell the hair transplant company that you are willing to agree on a mutually-beneficial solution.
  • Change physicians as a last resort.

Frequently Asked Questions
FAQ for Local Hair Transplant Clinics

Q: Why choose a Diamond Certified Hair Transplant Company in Alameda County?...

Read More »
Expand

Q: Why choose a Diamond Certified Hair Transplant Company in Alameda County?
A: Diamond Certified helps you choose a hair transplant clinic with confidence by offering a list of top-rated local companies who have passed the country’s most in-depth rating process. Only hair transplant companies rated Highest in Quality earn the prestigious Diamond Certified award. Most companies can’t pass the ratings. American Ratings Corporation also monitors every Diamond Certified company with ongoing research and ratings. And your procedure is backed by the Diamond Certified Performance Guarantee. So you’ll feel confident choosing a Diamond Certified hair transplant company.

Q: Does transplanted hair grow like regular hair?
A: Yes. Entire hair follicles are moved from dense areas to thin areas during a hair transplant. Once the hairs are transplanted, they will continue to grow as they did before.

Q: How much does a hair transplant cost?
A: The cost of a hair transplant procedure varies from company to company or physician to physician. Typically the fee is based on a base price plus the number of required grafts, which can vary from patient to patient. Be sure to ask if there are any discount programs available.

Q: Why is there a four- to six-month wait for new hair growth after a transplant or pharmaceutical treatment?
A: Usually it takes an average of four to six months for new hair to grow. This is because the hair follicles have to shift from a resting stage to a growing stage. Also the new hairs have to grow enough to be noticeable.

Q: Are hair transplants permanent?
A: As long as the hair continues to grow in the area from which it was planted the hair transplant will last. Typically the hairs in the back and sides of your head will remain all of your life. But they do tend to thin some. The ideal treatment is to take a medication called Propecia or another similar product. This will help keep the thickness of your hair so that it does not thin out more after the transplant.

Q: Is there a way to prevent or stop hair loss?
A: There are a variety of medications that can prevent hair loss. One of the key methods for these medications to work is to use them consistently.

Q: Is there an alternative to Propecia for preventing hair loss?
A: Many physicians recommend Propecia as it is found to be effective. It is proven to be the best oral medication for hair loss. Like all prescription medications, there are some side effects so they must be taken under a physician’s care. However, the overall safety record of Propecia is very good.

Q: Is there a link between stress and hair loss?
A: Stress can definitely cause hair loss. This is a condition called telogen effluvium. Fortunately, the loss is usually temporary which means that the hair will grow back after the stress is relieved.
