Dr. Gaines can help you understand the different causes of hair loss, and the hair restoration treatments available. He will help you determine the most appropriate method of treatment for your needs. He will also educate you about the advantages and disadvantages of the different treatments and medications so you can make an informed decision.
Here at Gaines Plastic Surgery hair loss is treated in a variety of ways. When you come in for your consultation, we’ll typically sit down and discuss what approach might be best for the pattern of hair loss that that particular patient might have. With lesser degrees of hair loss, a lot of times medicines are helpful. Propecia or Finasteride is a medicine that’s helpful at helping patients to maintain the hairline that they currently have, and get a certain amount of regrowth of hair. If the hair loss is more extreme, then a transplant may be the right option for that patient. Hair transplant in particular is one of those areas of plastic surgery where technology has advanced so much in the last 30 years that results can be obtained now that are so much more natural than what we used to see in patients getting the old-fashioned hair plugs that were done back in the 1970s or ’80s. It’s really quite remarkable. To find out what approach might be best for you, come and see us for a private consultation here at Gaines Plastic Surgery. Here at Gaines Plastic Surgery we have financing options available through CareCredit that will allow patients to finance the procedures that we do through this clinic for up to six months with no interest.
