New Jersey Hair Transplant and Fees

The Procedure: 
The technique Dr. Sterling uses is called follicular unit micrografting. This hair transplant procedure is performed in Dr. Sterling’s facilities under local anesthesia, while the patient is awake and comfortable--listening to music, napping, or chatting with the staff.

Follicular unit micrografting involves taking hair follicles from the back or sides of the head, where virtually all men and women have lifelong hair, and transplanting these follicles to needed areas along the hairline and top of the scalp.

Each follicular unit graft contains one to four hairs with its supporting elements. The microscopic  finesse with which these grafts are harvested provides for natural, yet virtually undetectable results.

Microscopic dissection of hair grafts

Follicles are placed at appropriate angles and locations to blend  harmoniously with any native hairs. The hairline is designed for one’s current age and with the foresight to anticipate future native hair loss.

After the procedure, the hair transplant is visible for about a week. Although there are some restrictions on strenuous exercise, smoking, and drinking, patients can resume their normal activities the second day following the procedure. New hair growth starts to appear in 3 months and is generally complete in 9 to 12 months.

Other Medical Options for Hair Loss:

Propecia pills and Rogaine topical lotion are medical options for hair loss and will also be explained during the consultation.

Hair Transplant Costs:
Patients are charged by the session depending on the size of area to be treated and the amount of work necessary to create the desired result. Fees typically range from $5,000 to $7,000 per session. Most patients can achieve a substantial improvement in as few as one session. Some patients may need two or three sessions, depending on the size of the bald or thinning area, the patient’s hair characteristics, and the desired density. Sessions are usually spaced one year apart to allow the transplanted hair time to grow.
