What to Expect After Your Hair Transplant

Embarking on your journey towards a thicker head of hair at North Atlanta Hair Restoration entails more than a quest for regrowth – it’s a pursuit for confidence and self-assurance.

Under the guidance of Dr. Daniel A. Danyo, North Atlanta Hair Restoration offers hope for those seeking to reclaim their youth. Having experienced hair loss himself, Dr. Danyo understands the importance of both effective and discreet results.

The first step in regaining a new you is by scheduling a consultation appointment with Dr. Danyo. In your consultation he’ll discuss with you your medical history, potential reasons for your hair loss, and develop a personalized plan of action.

How Much Does Hair Transplantation Cost?

This is often the first question we hear from someone looking to have a hair transplant procedure. At North Atlanta Hair Restoration, the answer is simple. Once a hair restoration plan is developed for you, one of our Patient Care Coordinators will provide you with a comprehensive quote for treatment. Our pricing is completely transparent and depends entirely on your personal situation.

Your written quote will be based on what Dr. Danyo believes will result in a successful hair restoration procedure. Pricing will be based on the number of hair grafts needed to obtain a natural new look. You will ultimately only pay for what you receive with no surprises.

North Atlanta Hair Restoration will work with you to determine a custom financing plan. We accept all major credit cards, as well as CareCredit, a healthcare credit card designed to pay for out-of-pocket expenses that medical insurance doesn’t cover.

Regardless of your financial situation, you deserve to feel confident about the way you look.

Why No-Shave FUE is Best for Hair Loss

When your consultation determines a transplant is warranted, we generally recommend Shave-Less FUE for the most natural looking results.

Dr. Danyo skillfully and artistically designs the restoration. During the procedure, he and his medical team will extract individual follicles from areas where your hair growth is dense without damage to nearby follicles.

Each graft is then carefully placed in a new location for a natural-appearing hairline, eyebrows, beard or to repair undesirable results from prior hair transplants.

The No-Shave FUE hair transplant technique results in a natural appearance with no linear scarring and no need to shave your head. Most of our patients return to work the next day without anyone knowing they’ve begun a journey toward a fuller head of hair.

Preparing for Your Hair Transplant

Prior to your hair transplant our medical team will make recommendations to ensure your utmost comfort on the day of the procedure. This might include when to avoid medications like aspirin or other blood thinners and when to avoid smoking or alcohol consumption.

Located in downtown Alpharetta, many out-of-town clients stay a short walk away at the Hamilton Alpharetta, a Curio Collection hotel by Hilton. During their stay, patients and their families can enjoy the vibrant city’s many activities including live music, exceptional dining and shopping, farmers markets and arts festivals.

What to Expect on Your Hair Restoration Procedure Day

The morning of your procedure our medical team will welcome you to North Atlanta Hair Restoration’s new spa-like facility located right North of Atlanta.

From the moment you walk in our front door you will know you are in a different kind of medical practice. The décor, the music – every detail has been designed to give you a sense of calm. Each treatment room is clean and modern, flooded with natural light, and completely private.

Our attentive medical staff is on hand throughout your procedure to see to your comfort.

● Anesthesia – For your comfort, you will be administered local anesthesia to numb the donor and recipient areas.
● Extraction of Follicular Units – Using specialized instruments, Dr. Danyo and his medical team will carefully remove each hair graft, ensuring the integrity of the extracted follicles and minimal disruption to the surrounding tissue.
● Implantation of Hair Grafts – Once extracted, Dr. Danyo and his medical team meticulously and artistically places the follicular units in the recipient area where the transplanted hair will begin to grow over time. Each graft must be placed at the proper angle and alignment to achieve a natural-looking result.

What to Expect Following Your Hair Transplantation Procedure

Once your hair transplant has been completed, our medical team will first and foremost ensure you remain comfortable while any remaining anesthesia wears off.

When you are ready to go home, you will be provided with complete post-operative instructions before discreetly leaving our facility.

At Home Care and Maintenance

You’ve made an investment in new hair. Now it’s time to ensure the successful growth of your transplanted hair follicles.

Our medical staff’s post-operative care instructions will include when it is safe to shower, how best to sleep, gentle washing techniques, guidelines on sun exposure, when it is safe to exercise (including strenuous activities), and how and when to take any prescribed medications.

Proper wound care practices, such as keeping incision sites clean and avoiding damage to grafts, are essential for successful healing and future hair growth.

When Can I Expect to See My New Hair Growth?

Anticipating your new hair growth can be a blend of excitement and apprehension as the transplanted hair follicles heal and rejuvenate.

While each individual’s experience varies, within a short time visible signs of new hair growth will emerge.

Let’s walk through the stages you can expect along this transformative path:

First Week

During the first week, your focus is on healing. Most patients resume their daily routines within days, with minimal disruption – most return to work the next day.

One to Three Weeks

Generally, after about seven days the transplanted follicles are securely grafted onto your scalp.

By the tenth day, you can resume regular showering and hair care practices. Some patients even opt for a haircut at this stage to further embrace their evolving look.

One to Three Months

Your hair follicles, after briefly going dormant during the extraction and your procedure, are coming back to life!

Three to Six Months
This marks the onset of the exciting growth phase, where new hair strands gradually emerge.

Six to Nine Months
Around this juncture, you’ll most likely begin to witness substantial progress, with your hair assuming a denser, more natural appearance. This transformation reflects the meticulous care taken during the grafting process, ensuring optimal success for each follicle.

Nine to 12 Months

By this stage, most patients observe significant regrowth, marking a milestone in their journey toward restored confidence and youthful appearance.
