Today, if someone is suffering from hair loss or balding, getting a full head of hair with a natural, minimally invasive hair restoration surgery has never been easier or more cost effective. The technology to accomplish this is becoming more and more efficient everyday. If one were to walk into any operating room and observe a surgeon performing a hair transplant surgery, such as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), it’s more likely than not that the instrumentation they’re using was invented and developed by hair loss surgeons Dr. William Rassman and Dr. Jae Pak of New Hair Institute in Los Angeles. As the market expands for those who seek to remedy hair loss in efficient, permanent, and minimally invasive ways, the doctors of New Hair Institute will continue to provide innovative and technologically forward solutions. Though the benefits these future technologies may afford are limitless, one must also keep in mind that for all the good they do, these developments are also double-edged sword.
The market for hair restoration surgery is getting bigger and bigger as more people find out about these new developments in surgical technology. The devices invented by the doctors at New Hair Institute, such as the cylindrical FUE punch, make the hair transplant surgery easier and faster to perform than ever before. This is good news for doctors, but it also allows for a quicker recovery time and is nearly painless for the patient when performed by the right surgeon. This is where it gets tricky. Since these devices make the hair transplant surgery much easier to perform, fledgling doctors with little experience are flocking to the field of hair restoration with the idea that it will be an easy way to make a living and won’t require much work. They offer lower prices and attract a demographic of people who wouldn’t generally consider a hair transplant procedure.
In order to make up for a lack of experience, they compensate with a larger marketing budget. This results in unqualified doctors providing unsatisfactory results for a larger percentage of the public. Unfortunately, this leaves the more experienced doctors, Dr. Rassman and Dr. Pak, the victims of their own creation as they often have to clean up after the rookies. “My previous surgery left horrible scars,” says one patient who wishes to remain anonymous, “and I keep my hair short because I’m in the military. It was real important to my career that I get it fixed.” Luckily, this patient’s unfortunate situation was able to be remedied at NHI with Scalp Micropigmentation, a procedure which lays pigment within the first layer of skin to mimic the look of hair or a close-shave and camouflage the scalp.
A person suffering from hair loss who may be considering surgical solutions shouldn’t be discouraged. There are plenty of qualified hair restoration surgeons, however, it is highly advisable that one does plenty of research to ensure that the one they choose is experienced, knowledgeable, and has the ability to perform the procedure in a way that will produce the desired results; an undetectable hair transplant.
