  • Can You Trust Your Hair Transplant Surgeon? Evaluating Hair Growth Yield

    Thursday, August 10, 2017

    Hair transplant patients have to put a lot of trust in their surgeon who is ultimately working on their scalp all day to deliver what they promised - a certain number of hair follicles (called grafts) that is optimal in providing a full and dense looking head of hair. And since most hair transplant surgeons charge per graft, each patient ultimately trusts that teir physician is transplanting the exact number they're paying for. So how do patient's know for sure they're getting what they've paid for?

  • Where Can I Get the NeoGraft Produre and Who is the Best NeoGraft Doctor?

    Friday, July 14, 2017

    The NeoGraft Hair Transplant Machine was initially marketed in such a way that men and women suffering from hair loss would be forced to ask "Where Can I get a NeoGraft Procedure" or "Who is the Best Neograft Doctor?" Unfortunatelly, both questions are products of nothing more than questionable and misleading marketing as the answers to such questions don't exist. The reality is, NeoGraft isn't a procedure at all and there is no such thing as a "NeoGraft Doctor". So what is the Neograft?

  • 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. While some hair surgeons are true proponents of using Propecia in particular to help maintain existing natural hair and to prevent future thinning hair and hair loss, other physicians aren't so dogmatic about it. Some hair restoration physicians feel that it ultimately depends on the patient.

  • Undergoing Hair Transplant Surgery Without Taking Non-Surgical Hair Loss Solutions

    Tuesday, May 23, 2017

    Since hair transplant surgery does nothing to stop the progression of pattern baldness, hair restoration physicians may provide warnings against undergoing hair transplantation without medical intervention.

  • 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.
