Hair Restoration Overview
The FDA has approved and extensively studied multiple medications for sustaining and growing hair. However, surgical hair restoration is the primary way to achieve natural-looking, long-lasting results with a full head of hair. Hair restoration surgery is FDA-approved and is available for the vast majority of prospective patients.
Types of Hair Transplantation
The two main surgical hair transplant methods are follicular unit extraction (the FUE method) and follicular unit grafting (FUG). Both FUE and FUG provide men and women with thicker and fuller hair. However, Dr. Salloum recommends FUE for the majority of patients because it allows for the best results.
Follicular Unit Extraction
When doing a Follicular Unit Transplantation, Dr. Salloum systematically removes separate follicle groups from various areas of the scalp. Preparing these follicles, he carefully places them into parts of the scalp where there is a loss of hair. Patients can sport short hairdos since the system does not lead to significant scarring.
Follicular Unit Grafting
During follicular unit grafting (FUG), the hair restoration surgeon removes a long strip of individual hair follicles, which are then divided into smaller sections and placed into the bald or thinning areas. To cover up the scar created by the extraction, FUG patients generally opt for longer hairstyles.
Candidates for Hair Transplantation Surgery
Candidates for hair transplant surgery are typically those who have genetic hair loss, a common type of hair loss that occurs with age. The ideal candidate should have enough donor hair follicles to provide a fuller head of hair. The candidate should also have sufficient hair thickness. Additionally, the patient should not have significant health concerns and be free from any medical conditions that could interfere with the procedure.
Hair restoration is suitable for both men and women, regardless of age, as long as they meet the criteria mentioned above.

Hair Restoration Preparation
Dr. Salloum provides each patient with preparation instructions during the consultation. The following steps can help patients with their hair restoration procedure:
Massage the scalp
Patients may begin massaging their scalp two weeks before the procedure for 10 to 20 minutes daily to help stimulate the follicles and increase the scalp’s elasticity.
Avoid sun exposure
Patients should avoid sunburn and exposure to the elements by staying out of the direct sun or by wearing a hat before the procedure.
Patients should avoid drinking alcohol for one week before the procedure.
Stop taking supplements
Dr. Salloum asks patients to stop taking all supplements, including vitamin E, vitamin A, cod liver oil, and ginkgo seven days before the procedure to reduce the risk of bleeding or medication interference.
Pause medications as directed
Patients must discuss any current medications with Dr. Salloum during the consultation. In some cases, he may recommend pausing particular medicines.
It is essential to stop smoking at least two weeks before the procedure because it can affect the healing process and increase risks.
Avoid NSAID medications
To reduce bleeding risks, patients must avoid anti-inflammatory medications, including ibuprofen, Advil, and aspirin, seven days before the procedure.
Ask about hair loss medications
Dr. Salloum will review any medications taken by the patient and provide pre-surgery instructions during the consultation.

*All patients are unique and individual results may vary.
The Hair Restoration Surgery
Dr. Salloum is double board-certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. He has extensive experience performing FUE hair transplants.
To begin, Dr. Salloum injects anesthesia to numb the donor area before gently removing the follicles. Then, he prepares the extracted follicles and numbs the treatment area before strategically implanting them in bundles of one, two, or three hairs per unit to ensure exceptional, natural-looking results.
The patient remains sedated and comfortable during the entire procedure. They are released to return home immediately after the surgery and given detailed recovery instructions.
Hair Restoration Recovery
Dr. Salloum provides aftercare instructions during the consultation for a hair transplant. Most patients experience minor discomfort, which is easily controlled with over-the-counter or prescribed pain medication. The extraction and transplant sites typically look like minor wounds, but they heal quickly and blend with the skin within a few days.
Patients usually resume their regular schedule within 2 to 3 days. However, they must avoid strenuous activities for 7 to 10 days after hair transplant surgery. The transplanted hair typically falls out shortly after the surgery. The hair regrowth begins within about two months. Patients are encouraged to contact Dr. Salloum and the helpful staff at the Miami Center for Plastic Surgery with questions or concerns after FUE restoration surgery in Miami Beach, FL.
Hair Transplantation Surgery: Complications and Safety
Hair restoration surgery is considered safe; only minor common side effects are expected, including tiny white scars in the donor areas. During the first few days after treatment, patients may experience some side effects. These side effects can include scalp sensitivity and numbness. It is unusual for patients to experience severe issues like infection or tissue death.
Dr. Salloum will carefully answer questions and explains the benefits and risks associated with hair restoration. Patients are encouraged to follow the doctor’s preparation and aftercare instructions to reduce complications and promote the best results.
