Dr. Sam Jejurikar, a board-certified plastic surgeon and staff member of the renowned Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute in Dallas, Texas, does minimally invasive hair restoration services on top of his usual plastic surgery expertise.
Hair transplant surgery is performed on bald areas of the scalp or on those with thin hair. The method primarily involves hair transplantation but also tissue expansion of the scalp. Flap surgery and scalp reduction surgery are other methods that can be used. Each of the hair restoration procedures can be done alone, or two can be combined to provide the best possible outcome.
SmartGraft is a service for hair restoration and one of the advanced procedures that Dr. Jejurikar offers. It permanently refurbishes hair, and there is no discomfort at all during the process.
Hair loss can take a toll on people’s emotion and affect their self-confidence. Dr. Jejurikar consults with the patient to determine if hair transplant surgery is the best option, so the patient can feel comfortable in the knowledge that a board-certified plastic surgeon has been successful, according to reviews, and has been performing hair transplantation procedures for years.
Alternative to Undergoing Surgery
Dr. Sam Jejurikar offers the alternative of not having to undergo surgery for a hair transplant to restore hair. The plastic surgeon uses a very accurate hair graft implantation procedure, which causes no discomfort at all.
Dr. Jejurikar performs the procedure at his office, and he can finish it in just one visit. First, using a SmartGraft device, he trims a small area in the back of the head to extract a donor graft to be used in the procedure. He hides this area after treatment. The grafts collected are stored in a sterile environment.
The doctor numbs the spot where the graft will be placed before proceeding with the actual grafting operation. Dr. Sam Jejurikar then numbs the implantation site and creates minute openings for the graft implantation. He is very accurate and diligent, since the angle and placement of each graft must be seamless.
The entire process takes about five hours, but it depends on the amount of hair loss to be replaced and the number of grafts needed to obtain filled hair.
How Long a Hair Transplant Lasts
In the hair transplant method, Dr. Sam Jejurikar takes a graft from the head to implant it into bald areas of the scalp. The transplanted hair follicles look just like the original hair that was there in the first place. This hair will continue to grow for life.
With the right surgeon, like Dr. Jejurikar, and the right care after surgery, there is no reason that hair restored through hair transplantation will not last a lifetime.
More Than One Procedure Can Be Used
Dr. Jejurikar can perform more than one procedure for best results in restoring hair. According to Dr. Jejurikar, a successful hair transplant demands perfection. It may be necessary for patients to undergo more than one hair transplant procedure to add volume or take care of a new spot of baldness.
Dr. Jejurikar understands that hair transplants are not for everyone; that’s why he takes great care to do a proper examination before undertaking any process of hair transplantation.
Hair transplants are more likely to be successful than over-the-counter hair restoration products. Most transplanted hair usually grows back in an estimated three to four months. However, people with dormant hair follicles may experience less effective transplants.
