What Is a Hair Transplant?
A hair transplant procedure involves addressing small pieces of hair-bearing scalp grafts from a donor site on your body, typically the back of the head, and then relocating them to a balding or thinning area. Hair loss is primarily caused by a combination of aging, a change in hormones and a family history of baldness.
Benefits Of a Hair Transplant
In the past, baldness was often blamed on poor circulation to the scalp, vitamin deficiencies, dandruff and even excessive hat wearing. All of these theories have since been disproven. The benefit of a hair transplant with Dr. Weinstein is that you can use your own natural hair to adjust your hairline, without having to resort to wigs or hiding the fact that baldness has happened. Nothing looks more natural than your own hair, and thanks to the skill of Dr. Brown, you will be able to restore your hairline for a more youthful appearance.

During your consultation, Dr. Brown will examine your donor areas, in addition to taking into consideration other factors that must be considered for an effective hair transplant strategy, such as your hair color, hair texture and the extent to which your donor’s hair is wavy or curly may also affect the final cosmetic result.
How Are Hair Transplants Performed?
Fortunately, the hair on the back of your head is genetically programmed not to fall out, unlike the hair on the top of your head. Thus, hair transplants can transplant the hair from the back of the head to the balding area where it will continue to grow.
Dr. Brown micro-grafting hair transplants which use strip extraction or follicular unit extraction (FUE), depending on the patient’s desires. One to four hairs are extracted per graft, and 1,000 to 2,000 grafts can be done at a time on average.
Dr. Brown will then use a trichophytic closure, which allows for the hair to grow up and minimizes scarring. The whole procedure can be done in our office under local anesthesia. Our patients are awake and relaxed during their hair transplants in Baltimore, MD.
