Dr. Arroyo’s goal is to give men and women a permanent fix to hair loss, leading to an improved appearance and increased quality of life. Utilizing the latest technology, he can create a tailor-made treatment plan to allow each patient to meet their hair restoration goals.
How much will it cost?
The cost of hair loss treatment can vary dramatically depending on the treatment technique used, the extent of the baldness, and other factors. On average, though, most of Dr. Arroyo’s patients can expect to pay between $4,000 and $19,000 for this transformative treatment.
Where should I go for hair restoration?
This is one of the most pressing questions that people dealing with hair loss grapple with. While some hair restoration techniques are simple procedures that a skilled technician can perform, it is very important that you work with a plastic surgeon. Plastic and cosmetic surgeons are trained to keep an eye on each procedure’s aesthetic outcome and are more likely to yield the natural-looking results you are searching for. During your initial consultation with Dr. Arroyo, he will use his expertise to determine which procedure would be the best approach.
Will everyone know?
You will need to keep your treatment area covered over the first few weeks. Consider wearing a hat because the surgical site will be red and obvious. However, once the healing is complete and your new hair starts to grow, you won’t have to be worried about anything. Many patients who undergo this treatment in a skilled surgeon’s hands benefit from a natural outcome that is not even noticeable by your stylist. If you have specific questions about this transformative procedure’s outcome, make sure to let Dr. Arroyo know well before the surgery.
How long before new hair begins growing?
Natural hair growth tends to be a slow process. After the surgery, you may notice your hair falling as the treatment area heals about a week or so. This does not mean that your restoration procedure failed. Keep in mind that it may take up to 4 months before you can notice any new hair growth. You may need to wait another three months before your transplanted hair can assume the average growth pace of 1/2 inch per month. During one of your pre-op visits with Dr. Arroyo, the doctor will let you know what you can expect during the recovery stretch. His office will also be available to answer your questions and provide the support you need throughout the recovery process.
How do I prepare?
Taking preparatory steps ahead of your hair restoration procedure is important to alleviate some of the anxiety associated with this treatment and improve your chances of a successful outcome. Make sure to stop smoking at least 48 hours before the surgery and not drink within a week before you undergo this procedure. You may need to start taking certain medications before the surgery to prevent the risk of infection. Dr. Arroyo will provide a detailed list of pre-op instructions that you should strictly adhere to to ensure proper recovery and a natural outcome.
