Hair is one of the most common medical conditions affecting patients across all nations, cultures, and backgrounds. Believe it or not, it is not just a problem for men. Women also can have noticeable Hair Loss which can be extremely overwhelming and distressing. The Hair Transplant Division at Réviance® Plastic Surgery specializes in treating Hair Loss for patients from all walks of life, with the utmost expertise, the leading technology, the highest level of medical knowledge, and a comforting, caring personal touch.
Why Does Hair Loss Happen?
Your body can be influenced by many factors that can lead to Hair Loss. General health, daily life stress, environmental exposures and other medical problems can definitely have effects on the health of your hair. On the most basic of levels, however, there are 2 major factors:
In all patients, genetics are definitely involved. There are a lot of “Old Wives’ Tales” about the pattern of Hair Loss in families, like “If your mother’s father is bald…” Modern science and genetic research has shown this to be much more complex. Not all the genes involved are known, but we do know that they are inherited from both sides of your family. If your grandfathers, your father, your uncles, your cousins and your brothers are all suffering from hair loss, chances are it’s going to affect you as well. Similarly for women, if the females on either or both sides of the family have thinning hair, they can definitely be at risk for hair loss.
Male Pattern Baldness (MPB) is very well understood. It is a steady progression that starts in most cases at the hair line and at the top of the head (known as “the crown”). These areas of loss expand further and further, and in the later stages of Hair Loss those areas of initial thinning become more severe, and then eventually merge to give the typical appearance of baldness.

Female Hair Loss
Female Hair Loss is slightly different in its pattern of development. It can be related to different events in life, and can occur at the same or different rate as Male Hair Loss. The majority of female patients will notice the hair thinning over the entire upper portion of the scalp at the same time, rather than starting in the temples or the crown as in males.

The good news is that Microfollicular Hair Transplant Surgery can correct Hair Loss in both of these situations.
There are other medical conditions that can cause Hair Loss, such as alopecia areata, Lupus, and psoriasis, to name a few. Radiation Treatments, burns and other surgeries on the scalp can also lead to damage and hair loss. These situations can require special consideration and can be better addressed by Dr. Gujrati during a personalized consultation.
What is Hair Transplant Microsurgery?
Hair transplant microsurgery, known also at Réviance® as Microfollicular Hair Transplant Surgery, is a revolutionary procedure that delivers the most natural-looking results for our patients suffering with hair loss. You can have natural, thick, continuously-growing hair without that unnatural, “pluggy” look. Our own Dr. Gujrati is one of the most well-respected hair transplant microsurgery experts in the world, having completed a prestigious fellowship in the advanced techniques of hair restoration and treating many patients from all different walks of life.

How is Hair Transplant Microsurgery Performed?
The most important principle to realize is that the hair that grows in the back of the scalp (known as the occipital area), have different genetic programming than those on the top of the head. They are not destined to thin or fall out, and are resistant to the effects of hormones.
During your hair transplant microsurgery, hair will be transplanted from one area of the scalp that has good hair density to another area of thinning hair or no hair at all. By carefully microscopically dissecting those follicles into single hairs or groups of two or three hairs, Dr. Gujrati makes certain that the natural pattern of growth on the scalp is preserved. There is a scientific and highly artistic method to the design and placement of these new Microfollicular Grafts. This approach ensures that you will have a completely natural pattern of hair growth that is virtually undetectable to others. Most importantly, these hairs will last you a lifetime. And to top it all off, your Hair Transplant Microsurgery can be done safely and comfortably here in the operating suites at Réviance® without any need for general anesthesia.
Am I a Good Candidate for Hair Transplant Microsurgery?
Hair transplant microsurgery is perfect for anyone suffering with hair loss. If someone in your family has experienced severe hair loss, there is a good chance you will inherit the same condition. Hormones are also another indicator of hair loss – specifically testosterone in men. While not understood as well, hormone changes in females during life undoubtedly have an effect on Hair Loss as well.
There are other skin conditions (alopecia areata, Lupus, and psoriasis) and various medical conditions that can also cause hair loss. Some of these may limit the results of Hair Transplant Microsurgery, but Dr. Gujrati can answer all of those concerns during a private, personalized, and thorough consultation at the Réviance® Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Center in San Jose.
What are the Typical Results of Hair Transplant Microsurgery?
Hair transplant microsurgery boasts some of the most natural-looking results imaginable. In fact, your family, friends and even hair stylists will have a hard time telling the new hair apart from non-transplanted hair. And best of all, it is your own, real hair. It grows, gets cut, styled, colored and treated just like the hair you had before. As you’ll see in our hair transplant microsurgery before and after pictures, you can expect to have a thicker and fuller head of hair.
