What are non surgical hair replacement solutions?

Clinics that claim that they can do hair replacement without surgery are selling you wigs and hair peices that require glue or other fixation methods which can sensetize your scalp and or create embarrasing social moments.


What exactly is a hair transplant?

The CosmeSurge hair transplant procedure takes hair follicles from the very back and sides of the head and artfully transplants them to thinning or balding areas. With CosmeSurge follicular unit technologies, this results in a very natural appearance. Simply put, we take hair from where you have more than you need and put it where you need it more. It’s the ideal solution to baldness because it uses your own hair.


What is eyebrow restoration? Does it work for men and women?

Eyebrow restoration is not makeup or tattooing. In eyebrow transplantation, the hairs above the ears or from the back of the head are transplanted to the brow area for a very natural looking restoration. If you have lost hair permanently from over-plucking, scarring, a skin condition, aging, or if you simply were not born with complete eyebrows, you could be a candidate for this procedure. Eyebrow restoration is suitable for and popular with both men and women.

We encourage you to read more details about eyebrow restoration, CosmeSurge patients who have completed this procedure, and the cost of eyebrow transplants.


How long do hair transplants last?

For the vast majority of patients, virtually all transplanted hair lasts a lifetime. In some cases, a small percentage of transplanted hair may be lost as the patient ages.


Will a hair transplant procedure hurt?

Although patients are administered local anesthetics and other medications, the degree of pain or discomfort experienced during or after the procedure varies according to the patient. We may supply patients with medication to use after the procedure, if needed. Many of our patients find that they do not need to take any medication at all after their hair transplant procedure. You can follow the steps of the CosmeSurge procedure here, read real-life experiences on the Battle Against Bald blog, or watch a video of how one CosmeSurge patient describes his hair transplant experience.


How does CosmeSurge hair restoration differ from others I see advertised?

CosmeSurge can't account for the work of others because we don't know the exact protocols and specific technical variations that are used elsewhere. We can talk to you about CosmeSurge's own hair transplant procedure and our artistry which emphasizes the natural variations in the texture and color of hair, the angles and directions of hair growth, and the size and shape of grafts. The artistry involved in combining these numerous variations significantly impacts the naturalness of the hair restoration results. Not every physician has the skill or training for this refined technique. CosmeSurge suggests you visit with others and we also invite you to come in to visit with us at no charge.


Is there any scarring from hair transplantation?

Whenever human skin is cut, it always heals by the process called "fibrosis." This fibrosis (commonly known as scarring) is the skin's way of healing. Thanks to the skill of our experienced hair transplant physicians, the healing sites in the transplanted areas are usually so small that the fibrosis is virtually undetectable. The scar in the donor area is covered by your existing hair. The CosmeSurge hair transplantation procedureis designed to produce a very natural look. In the great majority of cases, the micro-technologies currently used at CosmeSurge make the restored hairline virtually undetectable.


Are there any complications or risks with hair transplantation surgery?

Infection occurrences after a hair transplant procedure are rare. In the few cases where infection does occur, it is often due to the patient's failure to fully follow post-operative instructions. Even when infection occurs, it generally is easily treatable with antibiotics, which can be prescribed by the physician.


How many hair grafts will it take to cover one square inch?

That is very difficult to answer without a personal consultation with a CosmeSurge physician, because the number of grafts required will ultimately depend on the texture and quality of your hair. For example, darker, coarser hair may require fewer grafts to cover the same area as compared to lighter colored, fine hair. It will also depend upon your degree of baldness and your density goals. A CosmeSurge counselor can help determine what level of transplantation can meet your needs when you schedule a consultation at no cost to you.


How many hair transplant procedures are necessary?

The number of procedures necessary to achieve a personally desired goal varies from person to person and the individual degree of hair loss; but in our experience, the great majority of our patients want to have at least two procedures.


I have a medical condition. Can I still receive a hair transplant?

Pre-existing medical conditions are always a concern of your CosmeSurge doctor. If you have a pre-existing medical condition, please tell your Senior Counselor at the time of your consultation. For your convenience, we have listed responses for some of the most frequently conditions and medications:

COUMADIN: If you are taking Coumadin, you will need to be off Coumadin for a week prior to your hair restoration procedure. When you have a consultation, your CosmeSurge physician may require an okay from your physician.

DIABETES: We have performed many hundreds of successful hair transplant procedures for patients with diabetes. However, to determine possible candidacy for hair restoration, you will first need to have a consultation with one of our physicians. Your CosmeSurge physician may require an okay from your diabetes physician to confirm that your diabetes is under good control.

INTRAVENOUS SEDATION: At CosmeSurge, intravenous sedation is virtually never used for hair restoration procedures. Instead, patients are administered local anesthesia and are able to relax and watch a video, stretch or use the restroom at any time during the procedure. If you would like additional sedation or relaxation, you may request it from your CosmeSurge physician who will be pleased to order it for you.

KIDNEY TRANSPLANT: For various medical reasons, a hair restoration procedure cannot be done prior to a pending kidney transplant. However, once a kidney transplant procedure is completed and has healed, your CosmeSurge physician can determine if it is feasible for you to have a hair transplant procedure.

LUPUS (Erythematosus) - LE: Our physicians at CosmeSurge believe that, in many cases, it is not a good idea to transplant hair into an area where the hair loss caused by LE has occurred. After hair has been transplanted into such an area, the LE process (which caused the hair loss) could recur. However, in some cases (when LE has been inactive for many years) it is feasible to do hair transplants. Your CosmeSurge physician will determine this.
