Why consider hair restoration for men?
A thick, lustrous head of hair is no doubt among the key features of a youthful appearance, and it can be devastating when male pattern baldness or a thinning hairline compromises one’s image. Hair loss can cause depression, a reduction in self-confidence and social inhibition. It is perhaps one of the most difficult issues that men have to deal with around their looks. In the United States, about 50 million men suffer from thinning hair.
The good news is that in today’s technologically advanced cosmetic landscape, there are incredible solutions that didn’t exist even 10 years ago. Dr. Sayah is excited to offer his male clients the Neograft Advanced Hair Transplant System, which can restore the hairline with virtually no scarring. It is a minimally invasive procedure with a quick recovery and a highly natural-looking outcome.
How does hair grafting for men work?
There are several approaches to Beverly Hills hair restoration. One type is called Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), and it uses “strips” of harvested hair from a donor site (typically the back of the head) that are then transferred to the balding areas. One major drawback of this method, however, is the visible scar at the donor site, telegraphing to the world that a transplant has taken place.
In place of the FUT method, Dr. Sayah prefers FUE, or Follicular Unit Extraction. In this procedure, individual follicular units in groupings of one to four hairs are extracted and then transferred. They can be obtained from several different donor sites, including the back of the head, the arms, the legs, or the chest. Each graft extracted has the same diameter and length for a uniform outcome.
Next, the recipient sites are prepared by the surgeon in a way that follows a pattern of natural hair growth. The follicular units are carefully arranged according to their size and then placed in their new homes individually for a complete organic-looking result.
What is Neograft?
In the old days, to accomplish the FUE process, the doctor had to manually extract the hair follicles using hand-held instruments. This was extremely time-consuming and tedious, although it did give a better result than could be achieved with the FUT method. Today, Neograft offers the convenience, speed and greater accuracy of an automated extraction system. Neograft uses controlled pneumatic pressure to gently extract a hair graft with minimal damage to the donor site. Hairs can be transferred quickly while they are still robust and vital.
“Dr. Sayah also has a warm, witty demeanor and makes the patient feel completely relaxed and comfortable. He is located in a beautiful Beverly Hills office, but it is not at all a snooty, stuffy environment. On the contrary, the vibe is totally inviting, and his receptionist is incredibly warm and sweet!”

Who is a good candidate for hair grafting in Los Angeles?
FUE is a good procedure for men who want minimal restrictions on how they can wear their hair after their transplant, or those who desire a shorthaired look in the back and on the sides of their scalp. FUE is ideal for athletes or other busy men on the go.
Good candidates for hair transplant have sufficient hair in some areas to facilitate extraction. Patients should be non-smokers in good mental and physical health with realistic expectations for their outcome based on their confidential consultation in Beverly Hills with Dr. Sayah. Please note that while the Neograft system can work wonders, it cannot give you back the hair you had in your teens or 20s.
What can I expect from my recovery?
Dr. Sayah's Los Angeles hair restoration tends to have a rapid recovery period and few complications when compared to more traditional methods of hair transplant. You may experience minor swelling and redness for up to 5 days, but this is nothing to be concerned about. Additionally, there may be some minor drainage for the first 24 hours. Be sure to be gentle on your scalp when showering for at least 2 weeks. You will be able to return to work within about 7 days.
Because hair grows in cycles, the original transplanted hairs will fall out in about 3-4 weeks, making way for new hairs to grow. For the next 3-4 months, you will see your hair begin to thicken.
What is the cost of hair grafting with Neograft?
According to the Neograft website, hair transplant can range from $2,000 to $18,000, depending on your degree of hair loss and the results you want to achieve. Dr. Sayah will examine your scalp during your private Los Angeles hair restoration consultation, and he will then be able to give you a detailed and personalized quote based on his findings. If needed, our office will work with you to secure the necessary financing from a variety of trusted healthcare lenders with favorable terms, rates and repayment plans.
