Today, there are incredible advancements in hair transplantation that can minimize donor site scarring. Patients can now wear their hair much shorter after a hair transplant thanks to the latest advances in technology that NeoGraft provides patients in Nashville.
One of the unique aspects of Dr. Gold and Dr. Fisher working together at the Fisher Hair Center is that the patient can benefit from the whole spectrum of hair restoration treatments.
There are many patients who are not eligible for hair transplants but are candidates for other hair loss treatments that require the expertise of a dermatologist. Having two experts working together means that patients are getting optimal treatment.
What Causes Hair Loss?
Hair loss is a common problem for men and women and there are multiple causes of thinning hair, receding hairlines, and baldness, with genetics being the most common. We inherit our hair pattern from our family. Although it is often attributed to the mother, in reality, it comes from both parents. Both men and women can display the genetic pattern of hair loss called androgenetic alopecia.
In women, it has a characteristic look including thick hair on the back and sides and thinning hair on the top. A unique characteristic of women with genetic pattern hair loss is that they maintain the frontal hairline, while men usually do not.
Am I a Good Candidate for Hair Transplantation?
Patient selection is very important when considering a hair transplant. Some patients may not be good candidates due to limited donor hair. Fortunately, there are alternative hair restoration procedures that can help these patients, for example, light therapy, PRP injections, and other non-surgical treatments.
