Hair Loss

Much like the allure of smooth, taut skin or a sculpted physique, a full mane of hair is often equated with health and vitality. Your hair not only affects your inherent appearance but also allows you to express your personality and taste through the way you style it.

For many people, having a head of thick, vibrant hair is an integral part of their aesthetics and confidence.

However, age, poor health, genetics, or stress can all compromise the health of your hair. It might manifest as a general thinning, a receding hairline, or even bald patches, all of which can dent one’s confidence. Here at Rapaport Plastic Surgery, we understand the frustration accompanying hair loss and its impact on self-esteem. Dr. Rapaport and his highly skilled team are dedicated to providing effective solutions for hair thinning and balding.

Learn More About Hair Loss

Hair loss (alopecia) is a prevalent concern that affects individuals of all genders and ages, though it is most common in men and often occurs with age. Understanding its underlying causes is crucial in addressing this issue effectively. Several factors can contribute to hair loss, making it a complex and multifaceted problem.

One of the primary culprits behind hair loss is genetics since conditions like male pattern baldness tend to run in families. Hormonal changes can also trigger hair loss, with conditions such as pregnancy, menopause, and hormonal imbalances often leading to temporary or even permanent hair thinning.

Beyond genetics and hormones, lifestyle factors can exacerbate hair loss. Stress, poor nutrition, and certain medications can all contribute to thinning hair. Additionally, underlying medical conditions like thyroid disorders and autoimmune diseases may cause hair loss.

Exploring the various causes of hair loss is essential to find an effective solution and stop the condition from worsening. If your hair loss results from something like pregnancy or chemotherapy, there may not be much you can do except wait out the situation and maintain your hair and scalp health as best you can. But for hair loss caused by stress or medications, you may be able to try a different medication and make lifestyle changes to limit stress and restore your hair health.

Whatever the cause of your hair loss, hair restoration treatments may help. One of our experts at Rapaport Plastic Surgery can assess your hair condition and help you determine the best course of action.

There are many treatments for thinning hair, including various products that promise to restore your luscious locks. Unfortunately, many of these products have little to no effect. Those that do are typically only effective for mild cases of hair thinning.

Rapaport Plastic Surgery offers hair restoration treatments that will give you visible results. Depending on your unique needs, Dr. Rapaport and his team may recommend one of the following options.

PRP Hair Restoration

Platelet-rich plasma, often called PRP, is becoming increasingly popular for its healing and rejuvenation benefits. This injectable is frequently used in cosmetics to improve skin and hair health. PRP is extracted from the patient’s own blood and is rich in growth factors and stem cells. When injected into the skin or scalp, it prompts cellular regeneration, new growth, and healing.

PRP injections can encourage hair growth and restore a healthy scalp. The treatment is typically most effective for mild to moderate cases of hair thinning but not balding. Most patients need a series of injections for optimal results, followed by occasional maintenance treatments. PRP therapy can also be combined with additional exosome therapy before or after a hair transplant procedure for the best outcome.

SmartGraft® Hair Transplant

A hair transplant is often the best solution for significant cases of hair loss, such as male pattern balding. The procedure transplants healthy, growing follicles from one part of your scalp to the balding area.

SmartGraft® technology offers an advanced F.U.E. hair transplant option that doesn’t leave a conspicuous scar and yields better results. You can expect long-lasting, natural-looking results with minimal downtime and discomfort.
