Hair Transplant Myths and Facts

Benefits Of A Hair Transplant

Innovative Micro-Surgery

Debunking Common Myths

With its rise in popularity as one of the best solutions for hair loss, a New Jersey hair transplant is a novel and innovative micro-surgery that restores strong, thick hair to a balding scalp. Many of you may be considering a hair transplant for yourself, but as you inquire and research, you likely come across a number of myths. Here, we will debunk these common myths to help you better understand the benefits of a hair transplant.

Myth 1: A hair transplant procedure will produce unnatural-looking outcomes

This myth is common, though less so each day as New Jersey hair transplant techniques advance. At the Nova Medical Hair Transplant Clinic, we take pride in our ability to create very natural-looking results from a hair transplant by strategically implanting the extracted hair follicles in locations and angles that follow natural growth patterns and density.

Myth 2: FUT is a better technique than FUE

At our clinic, we offer both techniques because each method has unique benefits and is patient-specific. Whether you’ll do best with FUT or FUE, depends on your needs and desired outcomes from the hair transplant.

Myth 3: A hair transplant is a very painful procedure

During a hair transplant, you will have local anesthesia to effectively numb your scalp- and that is all that’s required for this microsurgery. No general anesthetic to put you to sleep, and no strong pain medications are required afterwards.

Myth 4: You can get immediate results from a hair transplant

A hair transplant extracts individual hair follicles and implants them into the affected area. It will take approximately 6-8 months for the follicles to grow hair naturally but initial results can be seen in as little as a few months.

Myth 5: Large hair grafts produce more density

The density of hair depends on the number of grafts that are being implanted, not how many follicles are in one graft. In fact, larger grafts often produce outcomes that are unnatural-looking.

Myth 6: Hair transplantation is only for men

The Nova Medical Hair Transplant Clinic has male and female New Jersey hair transplant patients. Hair transplantation is a treatment that works well for both men and women, however due to differing hair loss patterns, the design strategies employed will vary.

Myth 7: You cannot wash your hair after a hair transplant

After the hair follicles are grafted into the scalp and healed, regular washing will not interfere with its growth. For the first few days, you will be given instructions about doing this gently. We actually encourage our patients to keep the treated area clean to avoid infections.

Myth 8: Hair transplant surgery can affect your brain

A hair transplant only involves the superficial layers of the scalp, which means it does not go deeper than the skin layer, and certainly does not come into any contact with the brain.

Myth 9: Anyone can get a hair transplant

Although many people who suffer baldness are candidates for a New Jersey hair transplant surgery, you will need to have an appropriate hair density and availability of hair for the transplant. These measurements will be part of your assessment with our specialist.

Myth 10: An aged individual should not be undergoing a hair transplant

This may come as a surprise but in general, there is a higher chance for a successful hair transplant in individuals who are older. This is because younger patients have hair fall patterns that are unpredictable. However, you should know that age does not play a significant role in determining the outcomes of a hair transplant surgery.
