Hair Restoration Candidates

Hair Restoration

shutterstock_122348704Hair loss is a common condition affecting both men and women. Innovative and advanced medspa procedures for hair restoration are available today. People suffering from permanent baldness or thinning hair can benefit from cutting edge hair restoration techniques such as SmartGraft.
During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will determine the patient’s candidacy before recommending them a suitable procedure. Motykie medical spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides hair restoration treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and also to communities that are around these cities.

When to Consider Hair Restoration?

Anyone who is unhappy with the current growth and thickness of their hair may consider hair restoration. However, specific solutions will vary for people with different types of hair loss. Candidates should learn about the new treatments available today by reading over the Internet or seek a consultation at a qualified medspa to know about their best treatment options.
In general, a healthy person may consider hair restoration procedures when:

  • They have thinning hair
  • They suffer from bald spots
  • They have a receding hairline

Candidacy

Individuals with the following attributes will usually make ideal candidates for hair restoration procedures:

  • Suffering from male or female pattern baldness
  • Having increasingly thinning hair
  • The hair loss is not temporary, and not an outcome of medication, stress or some medical treatment
  • The hair loss is causing personal cosmetic concern
  • Certain areas of the head still have sufficient hair growth and follicles that can be utilized for grafting
  • The patient recognizes that the treatment and results can take several months or over a year
  • The patient is in good general health, has a positive state of mind, and reasonable expectations

Candidates with realistic expectations will understand the hair restoration process will take time, and may involve periods of temporary hair shedding, re-growth, and slow progress. They should be committed to the treatment plan as advised by the hair restoration expert.
Some people may have experienced hair loss due to trauma or burn injury, or following other cosmetic procedures. They can also benefit from hair restoration treatments. Some men who have been losing hair for several years and if their pattern has stabilized, they can add some new hair to achieve a more youthful look.

Basic Requisites

If the candidate is looking for a permanent hair replacement procedure such as SmartGraft, they should have an adequate amount of hair in the donor sites of the scalp. In case of male candidates, the sites will be typically at the back and sides of the scalp. Male baldness will usually occur in the top and front of the scalp. Hair in the donor sites can be used for grafting in the recipient areas for uniform hair re-growth.
While age is not a rigid criterion to determine candidacy for hair restoration, a permanent hair replacement procedure is often suited for candidates above the age of 40. In case of younger men, the nature of growth patterns can be unpredictable, particularly when they are below the age of 30.
This may make some of them less suitable candidates. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for hair restoration.

Fat Injections as Dermal Fillers

Fat Injections as Dermal Fillers | Beverly Hills Medical SpaFat injections are a facial fat sculpting procedure performed at a medspa to restore more youthful contours to areas such as the cheeks, chin, and under-eye area. Fat injections can also be used to volumize the lips.
Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and also a plenitude of communities across the horizon have an opportunity to receive fat injections as dermal fillers at Motykie medical spa, which is led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie.
 

Autologous Fat Transfer

Fat injection procedure for facial enhancement is considered a safe treatment option because it uses the patient’s own body fat from surplus fat areas. The excess fat is injected into the depleted or sunken areas of the face to create a fuller, rounder face. As the patient’s own fat is utilized, the procedure of fat transfer will involve three steps.
Firstly, some amount of excess fat will be gently removed from a donor site using liposuction. The second step involves isolating and cleansing the fat cells for transfer. The third and final step involves fat cell transplantation, which is done by injecting the fat cells into the targeted recipient sites of the face. The procedure can be performed at a qualified medspa on an outpatient basis.
 

Cosmetic Benefits

Facial fat injections can effectively remove aging signs such as frown lines, smile lines and marionette lines. It will help to mitigate furrows and deep wrinkles and creases, and fill the facial hollows under the cheekbones or under the eyes. If the lips have lost volume over the years, they can be rejuvenated with fat injections. Depressions and scars in the face can also be smoothed out with this injectable procedure.
Patients who suffer from lipoatrophy can benefit from facial fat transfer injections, and regain pleasing contours of the face. In some cases, fat transfer can complement dermal filler injections such as Radiesse or Juvederm Voluma. An advantage with autologous fat transfer is that no prior allergy tests will be required. Effects of fat injections can last from several months to two years. In some cases, the effects can sustain for several year or indefinitely.
 

Procedure

In the first step of the procedure, the treatment provider will perform gentle liposuction to remove some amount of surplus fat from a donor site, which could be the buttocks, abdomen, hips, or thighs. Very low suction liposuction is applied to collect maximum undamaged fat cells. The collected fat is then spun through a centrifugal process to separate wholly undamaged fat cells, which will be used for facial fat transfer.
The purified fat cells are then injected into the marked areas of the face. A hypodermic syringe will be used to inject the fat cells at the desired depth. Recovery following the injections is quick, and many patients can return to their normal routine within hours or a day or two. Results will become apparent almost immediately, and will fully establish as the swelling recedes.
