Presently the most effective treatment for hair loss or thinning hair is hair transplantation. While there are hair loss products such as topical minoxidil or oral finasteride pills, they can generate small to moderate regrowth in most instances. These products are best used for maintenance purpose or to slow down the progression of hair loss. If you want a cosmetically acceptable difference in your appearance, hair transplant is the only option utilizing you your own natural growing hair.
As far as we know, the most reputable or well established hair transplant doctors or clinics are not located in the Boston area. According to our patient statistics, we have seen very few hair transplant results from Boston based doctors or clinics. If you are considering your first hair transplant surgery, do yourself a huge favor and check out the hair transplant patient statistics section, this is by far the most important first step you can take when researching a quality hair transplant doctor or clinic.
When it comes to hair transplant procedures, do not base your decision on price and convenience alone. In most instances, hair transplantation is irreversible. So it pays to do your homework and research properly before making a decision. It's totally worthwhile to fly to another city to see a reputable surgeon.
One thing you must know when doing your research is a new hair restoration technique called FUE. FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction. NO KNIFE, NO SCALPEL, NO STITCHES, NO VISIBLE LINEAR SCARRING. Truly minimally invasive and fast healing time when compared to the traditional technique. This is presently the most advanced hair restoration technique in the world. Only a few doctors are truly qualified to perform this type of procedure right now.
With FUE, you can even use your body hair as donor and transplant that to the thinning areas on your scalp. This technique is now commonly referred to as the Body Hair Transplant or BHT. It has been proven to be a viable option and the body hair can actually mimic the characteristics of your scalp hair once transplanted to your scalp.
Unfortunately, nowadays there are literally just a handful of doctors who are truly experienced in FUE or BHT procedures. 99% of the hair transplant doctors in the world still do the old technique called STRIP. The old technique is a very traumatic or involved procedure for the patient. Also, it leaves a permanent linear strip scar across the back of the patient's head. The old STRIP technique is associated with higher risk of donor complications, and the scar has a tendency to widen over time.
When you are doing your research, please remember to ask the doctor: "Will I have a linear scar across the back of my head after the procedure?". If the answer to this questions is YES, then it is the old strip technique.
