Losing hair can be a sign of many things, from health concerns to stress. It can be troublesome for many, especially those who pride themselves on having a full, luscious head of hair. Unfortunately, hair loss can be a natural part of life for some, with bald spots and receding hairlines commonly occurring as a side effect of aging. In some cases, such as with specific ailments, your hair may grow back. However, it may start to worsen over time for those experiencing male or female pattern baldness or some type of hereditary hair loss.

There are immediate solutions, such as hats or wigs, which can be optimal for some. Changing your haircut or even trying to take nutrients might also be solutions for some people experiencing hair loss.

For more dramatic hair restoration, especially for those who have lost a significant amount of hair on their head, cosmetic solutions are available. Grand Rapids hair loss treatment specialists, Dr. Bengtson and Dr. Alfonso of the Bengtson Center, work with patients to offer customized hair restoration treatments to patients who qualify. Men and women residing throughout the area, including Detroit, Kalamazoo, and Birmingham, are welcome to contact us and schedule a consultation to get started.

What is Hair Restoration?

When it comes to enhancing and rejuvenating your appearance, treatments don’t have to stop at your face and body! Other prominent features, such as your hair, can also change how you look and help deliver a more youthful, put-together result.

There is a vast array of products and procedures on the market, ranging from drug store creams to implants, so patients may take some time to weigh their options. For those who want to avoid cheap alternatives or fake hairpieces, NeoGraft cosmetic hair restoration is available to deliver long-lasting, natural-looking results.

What CausesHair Loss?

Many factors can cause hair loss, and narrowing down why it occurs can help you get a better idea of how to begin treating it. For many, balding and hair loss are expected, as it is genetic and can usually trace back to someone in their family.

This is called androgenic alopecia or hereditary hair loss, but it is more commonly known as female or male pattern baldness. If it is ruled out that your hair loss is not due to hormones, stress, or other temporary factors, procedures like NeoGraft are the right solution for you. Talking to one of our board-certified surgeons can help you understand the best approach for cosmetic enhancement.

Who Can Benefit from Our Hair Restoration Procedures?

At the Bengtson Center for Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery in Grand Rapids hair restoration procedures that are minimally invasive are available to patients who want to address male or female pattern baldness. The ideal candidate for this procedure is at the beginning stages of hair loss and still has most of their hair on their head. This tends to yield the best results for both men and women, but can always be performed on those who are experiencing mild to moderate hair loss. It can even work on patients with long hair, which is a huge advantage for many who don’t want to lose their length, as well.

Identifying Signs

Identifying Signs of Hereditary Hair Loss

Male and female pattern baldness is a common cause of hair loss and thinning among adults.

It can occur at many stages of life, starting as early as the teens. The best way to determine whether the type of hair loss you are experiencing is hereditary hair loss is by seeing a doctor, but some common symptoms include:

  • Hair thinning beginning gradually on the top of the hair
  • Circular, patchy bald spots
  • Strands falling out often
  • Hair loss on other parts of the body
  • Scaly patches that spread on the scalp

What Type of Hair Restoration Treatments are Available?

The Bengtson Center offers NeoGraft, a treatment for hair loss Grand Rapids patients can receive that uses follicular unit extraction (or FUE) methods to collect healthy hair follicles in areas where it grows abundantly.

This procedure uses horizontal strips of hair and meticulous placement techniques to deliver a natural-looking result without stitching or incisions. It is minimally invasive and virtually painless, plus no scarring occurs when performed by an experienced professional like Dr. Bengtson. Schedule a Grand Rapids hair restoration consultation with us to learn more about hair restoration procedures and if you qualify for Men's / Women's NeoGraft.
