By their fiftieth birthday, about six out of seven men will have noticed a considerable loss in the thickness of their hair and the depth of their hairlines. While this is a natural part of the aging process for most men, it can cause concern and frustration as men equate confidence and attractiveness with a full head of hair. Often those with a receding hairline will first try topical or pharmaceutical therapies, but this doesn’t always produce the desired results. Dr. Kevin Ende offers another solution to baldness through surgical hair transplant in New York City, a market with over 3,000,000 men aged 50+.
Hair transplants are not right for everyone, but if Dr. Ende considers you a strong candidate for hair transplant surgery, here’s what you can expect:
Will Anyone Notice?
Small incisions in the graft area will form tiny scabs within the first day or two. By the end of two weeks, these will be gone and there should be no noticeable evidence of the surgery.
Will I See Hair Right Away?
Hair grafts will go through a growth and shedding phase, just like your hair’s normal pattern of growth, and you will see very little growth at first. In fact, it’s perfectly normal to experience some shedding in the graft area within the first two months. Hair will gradually begin to come in around the third to fourth month, growing thicker and fuller as it does. By the end of six months, you should be able to see noticeable changes. Your hair transplant should reach its full growth, in number, thickness and length by the end of one year.
Will I Need Multiple Treatments?
Often patients will do a second transplant to further supplement the look and feel of their new hairline. Slow changes in appearance are best. This will boost your confidence without alerting others to your treatment.
