When you are considering hair restoration in Houston, it’s a good idea to schedule a consultation. This will allow you to learn what to expect out of the procedure on all levels. You can learn about the methods for hair restoration that will work for you, explore the costs, view before and after photos, and have the opportunity to ask questions.
There are all sorts of procedures that are available for hair restoration in Houston. One of the most popular methods is that of follicular unit extraction. It provides a natural look and you don’t have to worry about a linear scar being visible after the procedure.
You will want to find out about the recommended form of scalp grafting and how many procedures will be needed to give you the desired results. Some grafting will involve pulling one or two strands at a time while others will involve pulling 30 to 50 at a time. Depending on the method, you may require multiple visits to complete your hair restoration.
Viewing some before and after photos at the office can help to answer the question of what your hair is going to look like after the procedure. Any center should have photos and you can see what the procedures will yield in terms of overall hair coverage.
It’s important to find out about some of the procedures to avoid so that you don’t experience problems with the overall aesthetics afterwards. There have been some poor procedures created in the past that do not provide you with a positive image and therefore should be avoided at all costs.
Since hair restoration is a surgical procedure, it is a good idea to learn about the risks. When done properly, the risks are minimal, which includes blood loss and infection. By taking the time to find a quality hair restoration center, you can ensure that you get the results you desire.
Some kind of hair restoration consultation should always be scheduled ahead of time. This will allow you to get questions answered and know what to expect. Only then can you make an informed decision as to whether you should get a hair transplant to improve your look.
