How do Los Angeles Hair Transplant Treatments Work?

There are two types of hair transplant techniques that surgeons have been relying upon for years. Each one involves the extraction of hair follicles from a section at the back of the scalp.

The first of these is a Follicle Unit Transplant, or FUT for short, which involves the removal of a strip of skin tissue from the scalp and harvesting the hair from that tissue. The second, and more modern, approach to hair transplant surgery is a Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE procedure. The follicles are removed from a portion of the scalp where hair is in abundance and each is individually implanted into the area where baldness has occurred. Both methods require insertion of the follicles into the scalp through grafts and the results look completely natural.

No one will be able to tell you've had the treatment...unless you tell them!

What Causes Hair Loss?

There are many reasons why your hairline may appear as if it's beginning to recede. For some, baldness is a genetic nuisance that may have been passed down from one generation to another. For others, it may be a medical condition or a side effect from a medication or supplement. Even stress or the way in which the hair is styled on a routine basis can result in hair loss.

Whatever may be causing your hair loss, our team at Zang SMP can help diagnose the problem and advise you on the best possible solutions for addressing the issue. In this day and age, with so many effective means for hair restoration, there is simply no reason to live with baldness or thinning hair. Zang SMP has the experience and expertise in performing hair transplant surgery for both men and women who want to tackle the problem of hair loss and regain their confidence.

But in order to decide upon the right treatment option to address your hair loss, a consultation with our team of hair transplant experts will allow us to diagnose the problem and select the best choice for restoring the hair you've lost with natural results and prevent further hair loss in the future.

The Follicular Unit Extraction Procedure

The FUE technique is performed by taking hair follicles from one area of the scalp, usually an area that is inconspicuous, and transplanting those follicles into the scalp where baldness or thinning has occurred. The result looks entirely natural, as if hair has been growing in that spot the whole time. There is no evidence of a transplant having taken place and the healthy hair follicles stimulate growth in the area, reducing or eliminating baldness.

The procedure is performed using the following steps:

First, the hair transplant surgeon will choose an area from which to harvest healthy follicles. The location of the scalp is then shaved down. The area where the follicles are to be transplanted is also shaved down.

With a special micro-tool, the surgeon harvests the follicles to be used for the transplant. Once the follicles are removed, small incisions are made in the scalp at the transplant site and the follicles are then inserted into them.

After the surgery is complete, the transplant area is cleansed and bandaged to begin the healing and recovery process. No scars will be visible at the transplant site, though some tiny white marks might remain in the scalp where the follicles were removed.

Possible Side Effects of FUE

FUE is a normal procedure for hair transplant surgery. But some patients may experience these side effects. Though extremely uncommon, some have reported the following:

  • Swelling
  • Numbness at the transplant site
  • Slight bleeding
  • Infection
  • Light discharge
  • Baldness or thinning hair remains despite the transplant
  • Slight sensitivity around the transplant site

The Follicle Unit Transplant Procedure

This method is typically quicker than the FUE method but is slightly more invasive. The surgeon will remove a small strip of skin from the scalp. How large a strip is dependent on the amount of follicles necessary to evenly and completely cover the area of the scalp that is balding. This strip of skin is typically around a half inch in width, maybe less in some cases.

The follicles are then extracted from the strip of skin and inserted into the transplant area using tiny incisions.

The procedure is performed using the following steps:

First, a local anesthesia is applied to numb the areas of the scalp where the work is to be performed. The hair at the site where the skin is to be removed is shaved down. The strip of skin is then cut from the scalp. You will not feel any of this due to the anesthesia that has been applied to the area.

The hair is then removed from this strip of skin while the surgeon sutures the area of the scalp where the skin was taken.

Using small incisions, the follicles are then placed into the area of the scalp that is bald. Once finished, the scalp is cleansed, an antibiotic is applied to ward off infection, and bandages cover the area to promote healing and recovery.

Possible Side Effects of FUT

Much like with FUE, the side effects of FUT are typically rare. Although some patients have reported the following:

  • Swelling
  • Bleeding
  • Slight discomfort
  • Numbness at the transplant site
  • Bumps on the scalp
  • Scarring

Scarring from FUT

Unlike FUE, the surgery will leave behind a linear scar at the site of the scalp where skin was removed Like most scars, it should fade and be less visible at first glance but it does become permanent. The length of the hair will usually obscure the visibility of the scarring, though shorter hair-styles will make it easier to see.

What our customer said?

I want to thank the professionals at Zang SMP for restoring the feeling of youth I have when I look in the mirror these days because of the outstanding job.

Steven Saunders

My experience was great! I came to Zang with a tough situation. Zang and his team were able to put me at ease and provided me with a solution to my hair problem. Other consultations with other SMP providers were very quick to dismiss me as a potential client, recommending hair pieces and expensive laser procedures and just nicking my hair down to the skin (nothing wrong with that, but I have a weird head). Zang was the only SMP provider that offered to really help me.

O. Rod

Everyone in the office was great, they attended to me well. They went out of their way to make me feel comfortable, 10/10!
