How is Dr Thaker’s method for hair transplantation unique?
Hair transplantation offers one of the most profound and lasting improvements in a patient’s appearance and sense of self-esteem, in all of cosmetic surgery. Dr Thaker is a cosmetic surgeon with unique and significant University training in hair transplantation. He trained at the prestigious University Hospital of Athens, Greece, to add a special ‘no linear incision’ technique to his approach to hair restoration. Dr. Thaker implants follicles in key areas using needle implanters and without linear or traditional incisions. This methods combine the highest level of technical precision with artistic design for our patient’s hair restoration. See some recent results here: Gallery
Dr Thaker is a featured expert in the news media regarding hair surgery. He also has taught hundreds of medical doctors and health care staff regarding hair restoration as a continuing medical education course director. He has been asked to serve as a hair restoration director for both international and US cosmetic chains, whereas he enjoys the independence of private practice. Our practice is unique in offering the full array of treatment options to our patients through an individualized approach. See a recent interview here.
Is transplanted hair permanent?
Hair surgery using Dr Thaker’s unique techniques is a profound ”cure” for baldness for many patients. This is because we replace the lost hair by transplanted hair, which resists hair loss. The key is that hair from the back of the head comes from a ‘safe zone’. Hair from the ‘safe zone’ tends not to fall out, even when transplanted to the front of the scalp. This hair can last many years or even a life time. When you consider hair transplant cost, it is critical to use methods such as ours for a lasting result. This technique does not involve a tell tale scar at the back of the head, nor thousands of tiny incision lines that scar the front of the scalp. The needle implanter technique creates a particularly natural result at the front of the scalp, where follicles are most noticeable. Schedule a consultation with us here.
Are hair transplants only for male pattern baldness?
Once considered a treatment for only male pattern baldness, hair transplantation restores hair equally effectively for women. We use hair transplantation to treat hair loss in other areas such as eyebrows, chest hair beard. Hair transplant also improves scar visibility on the scalp, such as from injuries or prior ‘strip’ surgery performed elsewhere. For all patients, we begin by analyzing hair loss with a search for medical causes. This is why we advise patients to see a hair loss expert such as Dr Thaker, with training in hair restoration. Dr Thaker thus first establishes that a patient does not have a medical condition that must be addressed properly. Common example are a hormone disease or even a medication effect. These causes affect men and women equally. We address these causes first and provides solutions hand in hand with our Las Vegas hair surgery methods that are lasting, safe and effective.
Who is a candidate for hair transplantation?
Both men and women with realistic expectations and in good overall health are candidates for surgical hair transplantation. It is sometimes said that hair transplantation is a journey not a destination. The reason for this expression is that hair loss is ongoing for many people, particularly young men. People may want to treat other areas in future procedures or increase density of transplanted areas. Many people want to avoid surgery or try other options first. For them, we may advise plasma or PRP injections and a medical stabilization plan to limit or slow down hair loss.
Who is a poor candidate for hair transplantation?
Patients with severe health problems or unrealistic expectations may be advised to try non surgical options first. Also, in unusual patterns of hair loss, Dr Thaker may offer scalp biopsies or other studies first. He would perform scalp biopsies first, for an unusual pattern or atypical history of hair loss to determine any rare underlying cause.
How does Dr. Thaker achieve such high growth rates of hair grafts?
Surgical transplantation combined with regenerative medicine treatment can optimally stimulate hair growth. We take a small sample of the patient’s own blood. We then centrifuge it to concentrate the growth factors, which we inject into the scalp usually day of surgery. Thus we can maximize yield of the grafts, and also aid in recovery of the ‘donor site’. The main reason is each individual only has so many possible donor follicles. We take each measure to help assure graft survival as each follicle is so valuable.
How does Dr. Thaker maximize growth of hair grafts?
Also, our non-traumatic techniques maximize hair growth. We use minimal handling of the delicate follicles. This is a key aspects of hair transplant surgery to maximize growth for a cosmetic result. Others may overlook these aspects for graft survival by the ‘factory approach’ offered elsewhere. This is where large suction machinery harvests grafts. This is sometimes combined in other centers with non-physician staff performing aspects of treatment that we believe should be done by the surgeon. We view our Las Vegas hair transplantation as craftsmanship, with personal attention of the doctor to every step of your surgery. By this attention to detail, we produce the best cosmetic result for our patients suffering from hair loss. Schedule a consultation with us here.
