How Do I Help My Husband with Hair Loss?

Author: Mark Pinsky, MD

According to the National Institutes of Health, androgenic alopecia, the most common cause of male pattern baldness (MPB), is estimated to affect 50 million men in the United States. So, it is not surprising that our patients at Pinsky Plastic Surgery often inquire about how they can help their husbands with hair loss. Whether he is experiencing thinning hair, a receding hairline, or baldness, the most effective way to reverse hair loss is with hair transplants. While certain topical solutions and medications can help prevent hair from falling out and even regrow hair to some degree, these products cannot compare to the natural-looking results that are possible with today’s advanced hair transplantation techniques. These new methods are nothing like hair transplant surgeries of the past, which required excision of large strips of the scalp. These old techniques tend to cause significant pain and scarring and generally result in an uneven, unnatural-looking outcome. Thankfully, the NeoGraft® system has revolutionized the way hair restoration is performed.

NeoGraft®: The Minimally Invasive Solution for Male Hair Loss

If your husband is bothered by his hair loss, he may find some relief in knowing that there is a solution that can help him reclaim thicker hair and a more youthful hairline. At Pinsky Plastic Surgery, we now offer state-of-the-art hair transplant services using the NeoGraft® automated hair transplant system. Our West Palm Beach plastic surgeon, Mark Pinsky, MD, has assembled an outstanding team of transplant specialist who assist him during NeoGraft® procedures to achieve optimal efficiency and an appearance that looks as natural as possible. This incredible NeoGraft® technology simplifies and greatly improves the success of both the follicle extraction and transplantation processes.

Benefits of  the NeoGraft® System

During the procedure, NeoGraft® removes the patient’s own healthy hair follicles from a region of the scalp that is unaffected by male pattern baldness (usually the hair on the lower portion of the neck, though hair can be harvested from a variety of places if necessary) and transplanted one to four follicles at a time. The extraction technique is called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), which keeps the donor area looking full and natural, avoiding the long scar that is common with older methods. Within a single session, West Palm Beach Gardens plastic surgeon, Dr. Pinsky and his team can artfully replenish patches of thinning hair and redefine the hairline with world-class results that could fool even the most discerning eye. With proper post-procedure care, the follicle grafts done with the NeoGraft® system can have an astounding success rate of 95 to 98 percent. To compare, traditional hair transplants are only able to reach a 60 percent average success rate.

NeoGraft® offers a host of other benefits your significant other may find attractive as well. Follicular extraction and transplantation is far less invasive than painful strip harvesting or scalp expansion surgeries. In fact, the NeoGraft® procedure requires only local anesthetic, instead of general anesthesia. Furthermore, there is also no downtime after a NeoGraft® hair transplantation session, post-treatment effects are typically mild and resolve quickly. Best of all, real patients who have undergone the NeoGraft® procedure have given it a 98 percent  “Worth It” rating on RealSelf!
