What is hair transplantation?
Hair transplantation is a surgical technique to remove hair follicles from one part of the head to a bald or balding part of the head. Men and women who are bothered by hair loss can both benefit from hair transplantation. The procedure is done in the medical office with the aid of local anesthesia to promote a comfortable experience. In many cases, a series of treatments are performed to achieve optimal results. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Truesdale to develop a treatment plan customized for you.

FAQs for hair transplantation in Beverly Hills
What is the success rate of hair transplant?
Dr. Truesdale aims for over 80% of the transplanted hair follicles to “take” in their new location. In many cases, a series of treatments are needed to achieve optimal results. The number of treatments depends on your goals, as well as hair availability in the donor site. To optimize the results, hair transplantation can be done in conjunction with hair loss medication.
How long does hair transplantation last?
It is common for transplanted hair to fall out two to three weeks after the treatment to make way for the growth. Most people see new hair growth 8-12 months after surgery. Hair usually continues to grow in the transplanted areas, especially when supported by hair loss medication.
