Millions of Americans experience hair loss due to illness, injury, or genetic factors. At Chantilly Medical Center in Chantilly, Virginia, Dr. Samir Nazam performs hair transplant procedures that can increase hair growth in areas of the scalp affected by baldness or thinning hair. Unlike wigs or hairpieces, hair transplants use your own hair follicles to produce natural-looking results. Hair loss may make you feel self-conscious, but a hair transplant procedure can help restore your confidence. To learn more about this procedure, call Dr. Nazam today or book an appointment online.
A hair transplant is an elective surgical procedure designed to treat baldness or thinning hair. During a hair transplant procedure, a doctor removes hair follicles from one part of your scalp and inserts the follicles into an area where you're experiencing hair loss.
Once transplanted, the follicles grow and develop. In time, you experience greater hair growth at the transplant site. Many cosmetic procedures and treatments only conceal hair loss. But a hair transplant encourages the natural growth of your own hair follicles.
Dr. Nazam uses NeoGraft® to perform a type of hair transplant known as follicular unit extraction (FUE). During this procedure, Dr. Nazam harvests hair follicles directly from your scalp, one at a time. He then implants the follicles into the area where you’re experiencing hair loss.
NeoGraft is an advanced hair transplant system that allows doctors to perform hair transplants with greater accuracy. The hair transplant procedure takes less time, and you can expect more consistent and natural-looking results. NeoGraft procedures also have a shorter recovery time.
Hair transplants are performed as outpatient procedures. You undergo the procedure in Dr. Nazam's office and then return home immediately afterward. No overnight hospital stay is necessary!
Before the procedure, Dr. Nazam administers a local anesthetic to numb the area. He may also give you a mild sedative to help you relax. Dr. Nazam carefully cleans your scalp before the procedure. After the hair transplant, he applies a sterile dressing to the affected area.
Dr. Nazam may recommend that you take a few days off work after your hair transplant procedure. But most patients can return to their normal activities within a few days. Dr. Nazam will explain how to care for your scalp at home after the procedure.
It’s important to understand that a hair transplant procedure may not produce immediate results. The transplanted hair follicles need time to heal and start growing. It may take up to 2-3 months before you see new hair growth from the transplanted follicles. Most patients see full results within 6-9 months.
If you’re struggling with hair loss, the NeoGraft system can restore your hair and provide natural-looking results. Call Dr. Nazam today for a consultation, or book an appointment online.
