Hair Transplantation remains the only permanent solution for genetic hair loss
While there are many treatments promoted for male pattern hair loss (MPHL), hair transplantation remains the only proven, permanent and natural solution.
Given that MPHL, or androgenetic alopecia, affects 70 per cent of the male population at some stage of their lives, a lot of men will find themselves considering a range of both medical and non-medical solutions. Nonsurgical solutions, such as wigs, can conceal hair loss and clinically proven medications and topical solutions can slow the progression of alopecia, but the only proven means for regrowing your hair is through hair transplantation.
Transplanted hair grows just as your own hair does. You can style it, wash it, play sport and swim just as you would with your own hair. Transplantation offers a permanent solution to hair loss because the transplanted hair is resistant to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the hormone that causes hair loss.
A natural looking hair transplant is dependent on your choice of clinic and doctor
Transplantation has evolved remarkably over the past decade, however not all hair transplants are created equal. When performed by the right surgical hands, hair transplantation delivers results so natural in appearance it is difficult to detect to the untrained eye.
Along with the natural appearance, the health and growth of the transplanted hair is dependent on the doctor’s surgical skills, experience and proven ability to ensure the donor hair completely replicates your own hair. Ensure you access the highest available standards in hair transplantation by finding out about the:
- Experience and track record of the doctor who will perform the surgery
- Standard of the clinic’s facilities
- Training of the supporting surgical team
- Surgical techniques used by the transplanting doctors.
New Hair Clinic is noted for the highest achievable outcomes in hair transplantation
As a leader in new generation transplant techniques, New Hair Clinic is noted for the highest achievable outcomes by way of a thicker and natural looking head of transplanted hair for our patients. Performed and developed by our clinic’s specialist hair transplant doctor, Dr Sara Kotai (MBBS), our Optimum Density Technique (ODT) draws on new generation surgical techniques, ongoing research and development as well as extensive specialist professional training. Dr Kotai’s training has included several years working in leading overseas clinics as well as close mentorship under Australia’s acclaimed physician Dr Jennifer Martinick. Like Dr Martinick, Dr Kotai is highly proficient in ensuring donor hair is transplanted at the same angle, orientation and density of natural hair. Our gold standard hair transplants can be attributed to:
- Superior instrumentation and skill are utilised to transplant the donor follicles closer together to create enhanced density and avoid the ‘see-through look’ sometimes associated with hair transplants.
- A thicker head of hair is achieved by transplanting single grafts containing multiple follicles together. This results in grafts with one, two, three and four hair follicles being replanted through the mid scalp and crown.
- A more youthful and natural hairline is created by meticulously and artistically replanting single hair follicles along the hairline.
- All hair transplants are individualised for each patient at New Hair Clinic.
What does a hair transplant procedure involve?
Hair transplantation is a simple outpatient procedure. Depending on the amount of donor grafts transplanted, the procedure, which is performed under local anaesthesia, will take between four and six hours. The transplanted hair is taken from a donor strip of hair bearing skin from the back of the scalp, the recipient sites are prepared to receive the donor follicles and these are painstakingly replanted on the patient’s thinning or balding area. When the procedure is finished, patients are provided with medications, detailed post-operative instructions and a saline ATP mixture for spraying on the grafted area for three days after the transplant. Sutures are removed two weeks after the transplant and a courtesy follow up is provided six months after the procedure. While the new hair can come through as early as four months after the procedure, patients usually see and enjoy the full and permanent effects of the transplanted hair after 12 months. Transplanted hair continues to grow for the rest of your life.
New Hair Clinic’s health standard accredited modern facilities are staffed by a carefully selected team of professionals who are dedicated to excellence in patient care, comfort and the highest achievable outcomes in hair restoration.
