Hair loss can be a serious issue for men and women and can have a huge impact in their lives. Being able to add the latest in hair restoration to their menu of services was important for the Golla Center for Plastic Surgery, who have always believed that helping people gain back confidence is also “good medicine”. Dinakar Golla, MD, is a board certified plastic surgeon and his approach to hair restoration is multilevel and comprehensive, incorporating medical and laser therapies.
“We’re excited to have our program finalized and ready for our clients” says Golla. “It’s really exciting to see the difference we make in people’s lives as they are able to overcome features they were uncomfortable with in the past. Helping to restore hair will go a long way in restoring confidence and vitality.”
There are many methods used by the center for hair restoration, including a daily dose of the drug Propecia. Male pattern baldness has been determined to be the result of a drop in levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This is why Propecia has been used in the past on men who experience male pattern balding. Propecia was designed to inhibit the body’s production of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase, which converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone. A single daily pill can go a great distance to stop hair shed and regrow hair to a region. Another method that has been used by Dr. Golla in the past with success is low-level lasers to increase blood flow and oxygen to the region. Most recently, the center has adopted the breakthrough technology of Neograft folliculary grafts. This technology utilizes minimally invasive hair transplantation technology that harvests, collects and implants individual follicles. This revolutionary technology for both men and women requires no scalpel or sutures which makes it minimally invasive and able to harvest large areas in a single visit. Because each follicle is implanted at a time there is no scarring and it has a more natural look than other grafting procedures used in the past.
