Are you self-conscious of your receding hairline or emerging bald spot? Hair loss, or alopecia, is a common problem that affects both men and women and caused by stress, disease, genetics, and some medical treatments. Board-certified plastic surgeon Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., helps restore your natural hairline and boost your confidence with a safe and effective hair transplant (Hair Replacement Therapy) to all residents of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and South Florida.
What is a Hair Transplant?
A hair transplant (hair replacement) is a surgical technique that creates a fuller frontal hairline by relocating hair from the back and side of your head. It is generally performed on men, but many women benefit from hair transplant surgery as well. A hair transplant may be performed independently or combined in a customized care plan. For more information on how hair transplant can be combined with other facial surgery
options, contact a friendly staff member of Dr. Rubinstein’s Aventura, FL office.
When Should I Consider Hair Transplant?
Hair transplant (hair replacement) surgery should be considered if you have thinning hair, bald spots or a receding hairline. A hair transplant (hair replacement) is a surgical technique safe to perform on most any individual. If you think you have sufficient hair to transfer from the back or side of your head, hair transplant may be right for you.
How Do I Prepare for Hair Transplant Surgery?
The first step is to contact a friendly staff member of Dr. Rubinstein’s Aventura practice to schedule a consultation. During this consultation, Dr. Rubinstein will listen to your needs and discuss the many options available to meet your unique needs. The day prior to surgery, you will need to cut your hair evenly so Dr. Rubinstein can monitor the even growth of hair during subsequent appointments following surgery. You will also want to schedule a ride home after your surgery as the medication used on surgery day may cause drowsiness.
What is the Hair Transplant Procedure Like?
Dr. Rubinstein performs hair transplant in the comfort of his Aventura office. A local anesthetic numbs the area where the hair is removed and transplanted. You may also be given a sedative to make you feel more relaxed during the procedure. The length of the surgery depends on the amount of hair being replaced.
There are a number of different techniques Dr. Rubinstein can use to achieve your desired results. Generally speaking, small areas of hair are removed from fuller areas on the back and sides of your head. Dr. Rubinstein then places the removed hair into the new areas very carefully to ensure full, natural-looking coverage. Once the transfer is complete, you may return home to begin recovery.
What Can I Expect During Recovery?
For your safety, you will need someone to drive you home after your surgery. Most patients wear a bandage on the head for one or two days after surgery. You may experience mild pain and swelling, for which Dr. Rubinstein will prescribe pain medication. You can wash your hair 48 hours after surgery. In most cases, you can return to work within a few days.
Dr. Rubinstein provides high-quality care after surgery and monitors progress through periodic follow-up visits. Stitches are generally removed one to two weeks after surgery. Within a few weeks, your hair will begin to grow normally. Final results are visible from a few months to a year after surgery, depending on your hair’s growth rate and the extent of the transplant.
