What to Expect

Your Confidential Consultation

From the moment you walk into one of our PAI Medical Group clinics for a consultation, you will know that your decision to find a solution for your hair loss with PAI is the right one. Your private, complimentary consultation with a qualified, trained hair restoration specialist will provide you with an expert opinion on your specific hair loss.

It will take about an hour of your time and we invite you to bring your spouse or a friend to help you reach a decision about our company, our procedures, and the artistic expertise of our physicians. You will be asked to complete a confidential questionnaire about your goals and expectations in finding a solution for your hair loss, and about medications you are taking or allergies you may have. Your hair restoration consultant will show you a video and/or photographs of PAI Medical Group patients and you may also arrange to meet with someone who has had the procedure.




Your Hair Transplant Procedure

On your arrival at the PAI clinic, you will be welcomed by our medical coordinator who will show you to your own private treatment room. During your procedure, you may listen to music, read, watch television or enjoy a recent film from our DVD library. You can also choose something to drink from an assortment of beverages.

Your hair restoration plan will be reviewed and you will be asked to sign a consent form, indicating that you have been fully informed about every aspect of your surgery. A series of preoperative photographs will be taken.
The coordinator will discuss placement of your hairline, which is moderated by the density and quality of the available donor hair. The artistry and experience of the surgeon will help you meet your realistic expectations. The number and size of grafts needed for the current session will then be estimated.

After routine preparations, you will receive local anesthetic at the donor and recipient sites. Donor hair from the back or sides of your head will be harvested and transplanted to thinning or balding areas.

Transplant sites are angled toward the nose. Grafts are randomly placed and spaced to approximate a natural growth pattern, thus avoiding a ‘doll's head’ or ‘cornrow’ appearance and also ensuring adequate blood supply for each individual graft.

If your procedure includes refinement of previous hair transplantation, it may involve the removal of ‘plug’ grafts along the frontal border and the subsequent re-sectioning of the ‘plug’ into mini or micro units for implantation into another site. Subsequent repair sessions will soften the abrupt hairline and fill in the newly created gaps. This produces a more natural and aesthetically acceptable hairline. After your procedure your scalp will be inspected to ensure grafts are secure.

The next morning you return to the clinic for an inspection and cleansing of the donor and recipient areas. Depending on your type of employment, you may return to work within a few days. You will be given detailed verbal and written instructions for care of your scalp, and any additional medications that you might need will be provided before you leave. You will need to return to the clinic after 10 days for removal of sutures.
