Best Los Angeles Hair Restoration Surgeons in 2021
Posted April 02, 2021
The loss of hair on the scalp is more than just the creation of balding spots on the head of a patient. Hair loss can also lead to a reduction in the self-image and self-confidence of a person and even make them less willing to interact with others. In order to gain the hairline they desire via hair restoration, many patients turn to Los Angles hair restoration surgeons to achieve the hairline of their dreams. Patients travel to Los Angeles due to its proximity to Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Santa Monica and the beaches that they see in TV and movies. They want to gain a full head of hair that looks “Hollywood perfect”. The Cosmetic Town team recently conducted research to identify the best hair restoration surgeons in the city of Los Angeles for our readers that are looking to undergo a hair transplant. Here is our list of the “Best Los Angeles Hair Restoration Surgeons” in 2021:
Best Los Angeles Hair Restoration Surgeons – How they were picked
When conducting research to pick the doctors for our final list, the Cosmetic Town research team kept a number of items in mind:
Our research team conducted extensive consumer research using the Cosmetic Town Intelligent System. The research project was focused on the field of cosmetic surgery and the relevant medical training on the part of the doctor. The research staff also looked at patient reviews of each doctor and their years of experience performing the treatment of choice. In addition, the doctors need to have current board-certification in order to make our list for this year.
The amount of research and peer sharing efforts that the doctors conduct on a regular basis were examined by the research team. Their peer sharing efforts had to include writing medical articles, specifically for medical journals, on a regular basis. The regular creation and sharing of these articles showed the commitment of the doctors to sharing their medical expertise and knowledge with their peers.
We looked at the amount of ongoing education efforts and types of interactions with their patients. The educational efforts studied were varied but they could include blogs, patient Q&A, articles, in-person presentations and educational videos posted online.
Best Los Angeles Hair Restoration Surgeons – Hair Transplant Procedures they perform
Patients that want to undergo a Los Angeles hair transplant procedure have multiple treatment options available to them. The two main types of hair transplant procedures are:
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant– FUE hair transplant is a hair restoration method that involves the surgeon individually harvesting hair grafts from the donor area of the scalp of the patient. The hair grafts can also be harvested from elsewhere on the body such as the beard or chest. Patients often choose FUE as it does not leave a linear scalp scar (as seen in FUT). The surgeon individually removes hair grafts from the donor area and places them inside premade incisions in the scalp of the patient. The implanted hairs will start to grow like the native hair on the scalp and provide a hairline that is natural in appearance.
Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) Hair Transplant – FUT hair transplant surgery is when the surgeon transplants follicular units, in their natural grouping, into the balding area of the scalp. While FUT is still a popular and successful hair transplant procedure, many patients do not want to have this treatment as it leaves a linear scar on the scalp (that can be hidden by long hair). The surgeon trims a narrow strip of hair and also cuts a scalp strip from the back of the head (where the hair is trimmed). The hair follicles that are located in the strip are dissected in their natural grouping and then they are implanted into premade incisions in the balding section of the scalp.
