As with any cosmetic procedure, proper expectations of what can realistically be achieved and the proper motivation will make for a great patient experience.
Dr. Bared meets with all patients before the procedure. He will first review your medical history, family history of hair loss, methods you are currently taking to help slow down the progression of hair loss, and review your goals for the procedure. Dr. Bared will then assess the quality of your donor hair and examine your scalp. Before proceeding he will then make recommendations of what you can be doing to help slow down the progression of hair loss. At that point, if he feels that you are a good candidate for hair transplantation, he will discuss your options for donor hair harvesting.
Once the area has been designed by Dr. Bared in front of a mirror, you will then be brought in to one of the procedure rooms. You will be given the option of an oral sedative to place you at ease during the entirety of your procedure. If you are having the FUE technique you will be lying face down during the first couple of hours of the procedure while the hair grafts are extracted.
The hair transplant procedure is a very meticulous process where each incision is made by Dr. Bared followed by the individual follicular unit, or graft, that is placed into that incision. This process happens back and forth, repeatedly, until the procedure is completed.
