What is a hair transplant?
A hair transplant is a minor surgical procedure where hair follicles are removed from the back of the scalp and planted into desired areas on top of the scalp. There are two types of hair transplant procedures – Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). With each process, follicles are removed from the back of the scalp and replanted into the recipient area.
Most hair transplant patients see results about 6 – 9 months after the surgery, while in a few cases it may take 15-18 months. Patients will experience regrowth of anywhere between 80% to 90% of the transplanted hair.
Is there pain after the procedure?
There may be slight pain the evening of which can be relieved with Tylenol or aspirin, but the next day there is usually no pain.
Do I have to get any medications on the way home?
Any medications you require will be provided at the office.
Is there extra costs involved?
No, the price given includes everything for the procedure, including shampoos, medications, and follow-up visits.
Are there other things I can do to help stop the loss and add more density after surgery?
Yes, you can use our special shampoos, which one bottle will be given to you after surgery. Also, there is Propecia (men-only medication), laser caps, PRP, and exosomes all of which will be discussed with you either in your consultation or after your surgery.
Does any hair loss treatment for thin hair work better than others?
There are no studies published which compare the different treatments available today. Minoxidil, laser therapy, PRP, and Tricomin products all work differently to help hair to grow. That is why we recommend utilizing all the treatments available. As with many medical problems, it may take several types of treatment to get the best result.
Do any of the hair restoration treatments have any side effects? Are they safe?
All medical treatments may have some side effects. All of the recommended treatments at Medi Tresse are scientifically tested and have been found to have no serious side effects. Any skin or scalp treatments can cause localized itching or mild irritation, but all potential side effects will be discussed with you before starting treatment.
How much does your treatment cost?

Therefore, it is important to come in for a consultation to discuss what options may be available for you and then you can determine what services or products are best for you.
