  • Can I Get a Refund For My Hair Transplant Procedure?

    Tuesday, June 27, 2017

    While today's modern hair transplant surgery comes with an ultra-high success rate in the hands of a quality hair restoration physician, all surgery comes with the potential of risks, potential problems and the possibility of subpar growth. In cases like this, patients often wonder how they will be compensated and if their doctor will at least in some way, stand behind their work. But do hair transplant surgeons provide full refunds in cases of less than optimal growth?

  • How Long do I have to take Hair Loss Drugs after Hair Transplant Surgery?

    Wednesday, June 14, 2017

    Whether or not hair loss drugs such as Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (minoxidil) are required before, during and after hair transplant surgery is a popular topic of discussion amongst hair transplant patients and physicians alike.

Some hair restoration physicians feel that it ultimately depends on the patient.

  • Hair Transplant Surgery without Medication?

    Friday, May 19, 2017

    While it's possible to undergo surgical hair restoration without using non-surgical hair loss treatments, there are additional risks. Depending on your age and the agressive nature of your hair loss, a reputable hair restoration physician may decline performing surgery on you - especially if your hair loss is rapidly progressing with no signs of stopping. But for older men or for those with signs with mild recession and/or a family history of minimal baldness, performing hair transplant surgery on a patient who isn't taking non-surgical hair loss medication like Propecia (finasteride) and/or Rogaine (minoxidil) may be acceptable and rather successful.
