Texas Hair Transplant Hair Restoration Guide

Texas is a big state, it is the 2nd largest in the US both in terms of population and area. Texas has a population of over 27 million people.

Houston is the largest city with about 2 million whereas Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington is the largest metro with about 7 million in population.

When it comes to hair transplant, our criteria in evaluating the quality of a doctor or clinic is whether they provide the new FUE procedure and whether they have published patient results in our open forum on a consistent basis over the years.

Before you make any decision, it is very important that you understand what FUE is and how it is different from traditional hair transplant procedures.  

FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction. NO KNIFE, NO SCALPEL, NO STITCHES, NO VISIBLE SCARRING. Truly minimally invasive and fast healing time compared to traditional methods. This is presently the most advanced hair transplant technique in the world. According to our patient results statistics, only a few doctors are truly qualified to perform this type of procedure right now based on number of patient results posted in our community.

The donor area is closed using stitches or staples which cause further trauma to the donor site. Return visits are required for suture removal. Patients will be left with a linear scar after healing.

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 in some cases the body hair can actually mimic the characteristics of your scalp hair once transplanted to your scalp.

If you are considering your first hair transplant procedure, the one thing that you must do is to check out the hair transplant patient statistics section in our site, this is by far the most important first step you can take when researching a quality hair transplant doctor or clinic.

Do not base your decision on price and convenience alone simply because a doctor is located near where you live. Hair transplant is a surgical procedure, there are risks involved and there is no guarantee what kind of results one may expect. The results are largely irreversible. So it pays to do your homework, discuss with your doctor and research properly before making a decision. It's totally worthwhile to fly to another city to see a reputable surgeon. You only have ONE chance to make this right.

Nowadays there are a lot of doctors who claim they can do FUE but really 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 for the vast majority of the time.
