What is hair transplantation?

Hair transplantation is a medical procedure aimed at restoring hair in areas affected by balding or thinning. It involves transplanting hair follicles from denser hair areas, typically the back or sides of the head, to the balding or thinning regions. The goal is to achieve a fuller, natural-looking hair appearance. This procedure can significantly improve the aesthetic look and self-confidence of individuals experiencing hair loss.

How much do hair transplants cost?

The cost of hair transplants in San Antonio, at Hill Country Plastic Surgery, is $7.00 per graft. Typically, patients need somewhere between 750-4500 grafts, depending on the extent of the hair loss and their goals for restoration. We recommend that you meet with the surgeon to determine how many grafts are right for you.

Advanced hair transplantation techniques

Our surgeons utilize the ARTAS iXi robot, the pinnacle of hair transplantation technology worldwide. This AI-powered system enables exceptionally precise follicular unit extraction (FUE), a method far superior to traditional techniques. FUE avoids linear scarring, allowing for minimal post-procedure scarring and the flexibility to wear short hairstyles. You can trusts us with your hair transplants in San Antonio

Types of hair transplantation techniques

  • Follicular unit transplantation (FUT): Often known as the “strip method,” FUT involves removing a strip of scalp with hair follicles from the donor area. The strip is then divided into individual grafts for transplantation. A notable drawback of FUT is the linear scar it leaves, making it less suitable for patients who prefer shorter hairstyles.
  • Follicular unit extraction (FUE): In this less invasive technique, individual hair follicles are directly extracted from the donor area and transplanted to the balding regions. FUE is preferred for its minimal scarring, making it ideal for those who wear their hair short.
  • Robotic, physician-assisted hair transplantation: This modern approach utilizes devices like the ARTAS iXi robot to enhance the precision of the FUE method. It employs AI for optimal donor hair selection and recipient site creation, further improving the natural appearance and efficiency of the transplant. Hill Country Plastic Surgery is the sole provider of the ARTAS iXi robotic system in South Texas.

Personalized hairline design

Understanding the importance of a natural-looking hairline, our surgeons consider various factors such as hair type, head shape, and natural hair growth patterns. Each patient receives a personalized hairline design, ensuring the restored hair complements their facial features and their aesthetic goals.

What hair loss issues can be resolved with hair transplantation?

  • Male pattern baldness: The most common form of hair loss in men, characterized by a receding hairline and thinning crown.
  • Female pattern hair loss: Thinning hair in women, especially over the top and sides of the head, often first appearing as a wider part.
  • Traction alopecia: Hair loss caused by prolonged tension on hair, often due to certain hairstyles or hair treatments.

The ultimate in personalized care

At Hill Country Plastic Surgery, you will be working directly with our plastic surgeon at every stage of the process, from the initial consultation to detailed follow-ups. Our approach ensures that the entire journey is collaborative, with the treatment plan and recovery process tailored to meet your specific needs and goals.

Post-operative care and recovery

Our post-operative process is designed to be as comfortable as possible, with minimal pain and a quick return to daily activities. Patients can expect some scabbing at implantation sites for about 7-10 days, with minimal pain the day following the procedure.

Hair growth timeline

While transplanted hair may initially shed, regrowth typically begins around 3 to 6 months post-procedure. Most patients will notice a significant improvement in hair density starting at 6 to 9 months, with the final results visible around 12 months after the procedure.

A commitment to natural results and patient satisfaction

Our commitment goes beyond the technical aspects of hair transplantation. We are dedicated to restoring not only hair but also confidence. Our values of honesty, compassion, and dedication are evident in every aspect of our patient care, ensuring each individual feels valued and understood.
