Hair loss may occur due to genetic constitution, the natural aging process, hormonal changes or trauma and burns to the scalp. Hair replacement surgery is an option for those who are concerned about their hair loss. Dr. Sofonio, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon, offers hair replacement surgery to patients in Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage, CA.
When you come in for a consultation, Dr. Sofonio will examine you to determine if you are a good candidate for a hair replacement procedure. Hair replacement involves the transplantation of small portions of hair-bearing scalp grafts, harvested from donor sites, to thinning or bald areas. This painstaking process may need several sessions before the procedure is complete.
At the end of the grafting session, Dr. Sofonio will cleanse your scalp and cover it with gauze. You may also need to wear a pressure bandage for a day or two to keep any resultant swelling down. Dr. Sofonio will instruct you on any applicable post-treatment care tailored to your specific requirements.
The final result of a hair replacement procedure will not be seen until the entire procedure is complete. You may need subsequent “touch-ups” to improve the appearance of your hairline following your procedure.
