Hair Restoration for Men: Are You a Candidate?

Hair restoration surgery has been available for more than 60 years and is typically performed under local anesthesia, which means it does not require a hospital stay. At Amarillo Hair Restoration Center, we offer the NeoGraft® System (FUE). NeoGraft is an automated, minimally invasive microsurgical procedure that harvests, collects, and implants individual hair follicle grafts. Using this technique, there is no need to remove a skin strip from the back of the head; instead, hair follicles are removed and transplanted one at a time.

Is hair restoration right for you?

There are a number of factors to consider before you and your physician can make the appropriate determination about your path to hair restoration, including:

  • Age
    While hair restoration can be done at any age, patients over the age of 30 are the best candidates. By this time, the hair loss pattern is well established and the transplant is more likely to remain natural looking over the years.
  • Health conditions
    The best candidates for the NeoGraft system, or any surgery, are those in good health. If you suffer from a condition like diabetes, or one that requires prescription blood thinners, you will need to discuss your unique situation with your hair transplant surgeon.
  • Lifestyle
    Living a healthy lifestyle improves your immune system, which means less recovery time, swelling and a lower risk of post-operative infection. It’s important to eat well, exercise, stay hydrated and get plenty of rest to maintain your optimal health and wellness.
  • Hair loss classification
    The more donor hair you have available on your scalp, the better and more natural-looking your results will be.
  • Commitment to aftercare
    Following aftercare instructions is one of the most important factors in predicting the success of any hair restoration for men and women. If you are committed to proper aftercare, you will enjoy your natural looking hair restoration for years to come.
