Outpatient Procedure for Hair Loss

Surgical Transplantation in Washington DC Metro Area and Virginia

before hair transplant in Washington D.C.At Virginia Surgical Hair Center, the surgical transplantation of hair follicles is a remarkably easy outpatient procedure. Lifelong hair follicles are found in good supply in virtually all men and women, even with advanced stages of baldness. These lifelong hairs are concentrated in an area at the back and sides of the head. We call this region the “donor area.” During the hair transplant procedure, our physicians take excess hairs – follicles and all – from this plentiful area and relocate them to areas of thinning and balding on the top or front of the head.

Of course your approval of our strategy for your hair is an absolute must and will be your physicians general guide in tailoring your new hairline. Please be advised that individual hair transplant results may vary. Why hair transplantation works, the medical process for hair restoration involves the transplanting of hairs and follicles from one area of the head to another. Every single follicle of hair on the human scalp is genetically programmed before birth to either become sensitive to the male hormones which begin to appear during puberty – causing the follicle to wither and die in time – or not to become sensitive to these hormones and continue growing throughout one’s lifetime. During the hair transplant procedure, grafts are placed ONE AT A TIME in the thinning and balding areas. VSC physicians are trained to artistically perform this procedure in a manner that results in virtually undetectable natural-looking restored hairlines and natural density.

Pursuing the Perfect Transplanted Hairline:

The scientific and artistic techniques that Virginia Surgical Hair Center has been performing since 1992 allow VSC physicians to recreate soft, natural, living hairlines that are virtually indistinguishable from the original hairlines that have eroded away. Your finished hairlines are usually so soft and natural; they don’t have to be hidden by hair combed over in the front.

The Procedure:

During the hair transplant procedure, grafts are placed ONE AT A TIME in a unique way depending on your particular loss, in the thinning and balding areas. VSC physicians & staff are trained to artistically perform this procedure in a manner that results in virtually undetectable natural-looking restored hairlines and natural density.

For Men and Women:

The techniques and process utilized at Virginia Surgical Hair Center are equally effective in treating hair loss for both men and women. “When it comes to hair loss, everyone’s situation is different and personal. While heredity is the primary cause of hair loss in most cases, the severity of hair loss, its pattern, and the impact on that person’s life is truly unique. So is the solution. For many men and women, the benefits of a permanent solution to hair loss, hair restoration, is the right choice. But whatever you situation, VSC wants you to have all the information, so you can make the right choice for you.”

A Genetic Problem?

hair loss in Washington D.C.For most of us who are experiencing premature baldness, the cause is genetic. Hair loss, like eye color, is an inherited trait. While you were still forming in the womb, your hair follicles were being genetically coded. If genes responsible for hair loss were present, they made the hair follicles on top of your head sensitive to the hormone dihydrotestosterone, or DHT. These follicles were then predisposed to begin shrinking when you reached adulthood. Unfortunately, once this genetic ball gets rolling, it will continue throughout your lifetime. As the hairs produced by your ever-shrinking follicles become finer and finer, they will begin failing to grow to normal length. And what is first noticed as “thinning hair” or a “receding hairline” progresses to baldness when the shrinking follicles finally stop producing any hair at all.

Popular Misconceptions

For many years our schools have taught – quite erroneously – that hair loss is always inherited from the mother’s father. Medical science now knows that baldness genes are passed down from both sides of the family. They also can skip generations, and are utterly random in terms of which siblings they will affect; it is quite common for a woman to keep a full head of hair while her sister begins experiencing severe thinning in her twenties.

How Important Is Hair Care?

Contrary to common belief, hair loss is not caused by a failure to take good care of your hair. Consumers waste millions of dollars on shampoos and phony, non-FDA approved treatments. (Only three medications, Rogaine, Propecia and Laser Hair Therapy have ever been approved by the FDA to treat hair loss.) We have counseled too many men and women who hold themselves responsible for their hair loss. It is important to understand that with very few exceptions, our hair follicles are going to live or die by their genetic coding – and nothing else. Medical science is still searching for a complete understanding of the biochemical processes that occur within our hair follicles.
