Hair Transplant Beverly Hills
Hair transplantation is one of the most rewarding procedures for both the surgeon and patient given the excellent results combined with the minimal downtime. Dr. Attenello is an expert hair restoration surgeon having trained with one of the world’s leader in hair restoration. As one of the very few female hair surgeons, she provides a novel perspective that results in the most natural appearing results. She will customize a treatment plan specifically for you and can include both surgical and non-surgical treatments. She will take a detailed history and physical and together with the patient, a treatment plan is designed.
During the procedure:
Hair transplantation may be achieved through either the Follicular Unit Transfer (FUT) method or the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method, both of which Dr. Attenello perform. Hair transplantation is an in-office procedure and you are kept comfortable with medications that help relax you and control any pain – most patients end up sleeping mostly during the procedure.
After surgery, a light cap can be worn and detailed instructions are given. Patients can usually shower after the second day and the pain is usually minimal, if any. Mild redness and crusting can be expected where the hair grafts were placed, and this usually resolves after a week. Depending on your comfort level of this and where your grafts were, many patients can return to work and social activity after 1-2 days. Though, we advise against certain activities such as heavy lifting and smoking.
Dr. Natalie Attenello performs both F.U.E. as well as the ‘strip’ method. Here is a result from her patient with the ‘strip’ method. With meticulous surgical technique, the scar should barely be perceptible.
