Hair Transplant Procedure

Hair loss is caused by a combination of ageing, hormonal changes and a genetic history of baldness.  The earlier hair loss begins, the more severe the baldness.  It can also be caused by trauma, or burns, whereas this surgery is considered reconstructive.

Here is some General Information about MI:

Michigan Drink

Although not as prestigious as Californian or overseas varieties, Michigan wines [27] are growing in respectability, with significant vineyards in the southwest (e.g. St. Julian, Tabor Hill, Fenn Valley) and northwest Lower Peninsula (e.g. Leelanau Cellars, Good Harbor, Chateau Grand Traverse).

Stroh's was one of the last of the great traditional Michigan breweries and a Detroit-area staple, but is now made out of state. However, local breweries can now be found throughout Michigan. Some of the more widely available Michigan beers are Bell's, Arcadia, Michigan Brewing, and Founder's.

Two native brands of soft drinks (called "pop" by the locals) are Faygo (perhaps best known for strawberry-flavored "Redpop" and the 1970s top-10 single based on their TV jingle), and Vernor's ginger ale (with its distinctive tangy taste and gnome mascot). The national brands own the restaurant and vending-machine business, but these are available in stores.

Procedure Types

Hair Transplantation - The procedure consists of resurfacing bald areas of scalp with hair.  Plugs of bald scalp are removed and then filled with plugs of scalp containing several hair roots taken from hair-bearing areas.  Those grafts root themselves into their new locations and hair follicles start to grow eventually. 

Depending on the degree of baldness, the number of grafts needed and the length of treatment sessions vary.  Several operations may be necessary.  The technique may leave many small scars on the site used (donor sites) but are usually not noticeable.

MI hair transplant - Tip of the day:
Who are the Ideal Candidates for a Hair Transplant?
Completely bald people from whom no hair can be derived and grafted are not candidates. In MI(Michigan), balding people with healthy growth of hair at the back and sides of the head are qualified. These areas will serve as the donor areas from which grafts are to be taken from.

Scalp Flap Transfer – This is done when the sides of the scalp (above the ears) and the back of the scalp is hair-bearing.  A long thin "flap" of scalp that is hair-bearing is removed and placed across a bald section to create a band of normal hair growth.  As part of the treatment, parts of the bald scalp may be removed.  The donor site is closed by stretching the opposite side of the scalp. 
This procedure replaces hair across a large area of bald scalp.  The hair growth looks normal, and the narrow scars are hidden between the hair follicles.

Scalp Reduction (Serial Excision) – This is the removal of as much of the bald section as possible and done in the first operation.  The adjacent hair bearing areas of scalp are pulled in close to the bald section, with the understanding that some bald areas will remain.  This technique is repeated one or more times at a later date to eventually reconstruct the bald area.

Tissue Expansion – A device called a tissue expander is placed under a hair growth area situated adjacent to a bald area.  After several weeks, the tissue expander causes skin to grow new skin cells.  Then another operation is necessary to place the newly expanded skin over the ajoining bald area.

Ideal candidates for hair replacement must have a healthy growth of hair at the back and sides of the head.  The hair on the back and sides of the head will be the donor sites where the flaps and grafts will be surgically removed.

The procedure  location options may include the surgeon`s office-based surgical facility, outpatient surgery center, hospital outpatient, or hospital in patient.

The anesthetic options are either general, or local (combined with a sedative)which allows the patient to remain awake but relaxed.

MI hair transplant - News update:
An article in the open-access journal PLOS ComputationalBiology discusses how statistical modeling can aidresearchers in determining a person's individual immune systemproteins. This will help to assess a patient's disease fighting abilityor the likelihood that the immune system will attack the body's owntissues. More...

To achieve desired fullness, several surgical sessions are needed.  There is a healing period of several months  recommended between each session. The final result with a full transplant series may take up to 2 years. 

A month or 2 after surgery, the grafted hair falls out (which is normal and temporary).  It takes another month or more before hair growth starts.  To create more natural-looking results, a surgical touch-up procedure may be necessary.  This may consist of using a combination of mini grafts or slit grafts to fill and blend in the hairline.
