Male Hair Restoration
Hair loss can be an upsetting and unpleasant experience for many men. Having a full head of hair is often associated with strong masculinity and an attractive aesthetic, which is why thinning hair can have damaging effects on a man’s self-esteem. Hair restoration is a cosmetic procedure that involves moving active, healthy hair follicles to areas with little to no hair growth. This treatment can revitalize a patient’s appearance and improve his confidence.

Preparing For Your Surgery
The best candidates for male hair restoration suffer from androgenic hair loss (known as male pattern baldness) and have enough active hair to move to the thinning or bald areas. For a successful hair graft, the donor area should be full of healthy hair that is not in the process of falling out. During your initial consultation with Dr. Palladino, he will assess your condition and determine if you qualify for male hair restoration treatment and develop a personalized approach for your concerns. This appointment will also be the best opportunity to discuss your health history and your cosmetic objectives, which will be considered when devising your unique treatment plan. If male hair restoration is appropriate for your needs, Dr. Palladino will provide you with detailed preoperative directions to prepare you for the procedure. Male hair restoration patients must not use tobacco products for at least two weeks before and after treatment to ensure optimal healing. Is always recommended to have someone drive you to and from the facility on the day of your appointment.
