What causes hair loss?
Hair loss is caused when the hair follicles slow or stop hair growth. There are different factors that can cause an interruption in the body’s hair production cycle, including age, genetics, medical situations, stress, nutritional deficiencies, and other factors. When a person experiences hair thinning and hair loss, there is a range of options to choose from to resolve these concerns.
Dr. Alizadeh offers both surgical hair transplantation and minimally invasive hair restoration techniques to ensure his patients can benefit from the most cutting-edge procedures available.
Hair Restoration Treatment Options With Dr. Alizadeh
PRP and PRF are substances that are derived from a small amount of your own blood, usually taken from a vein in your arm. The PRP or PRF is injected into your scalp–no incisions are required. Both PRP and PRF contain growth factors and regenerative capabilities that, when injected into the scalp, stimulate your hair follicles to produce healthy, thick hair.
NeoGraft is a semi-automated type of follicular unit extraction that harvests strong, healthy hair follicles from a donor site at the back of the head, where the hair follicles are thicker and stronger. These follicles are then placed in the bald or thinning areas, creating a full, thick head of hair.
FUE Hair Transplantation is an advanced hair restoration method that removes hair follicles individually, requiring no removal of skin from the scalp. Dr. Alizadeh extracts thriving follicles with a unique suction device when he performs FUE hair transplantation. The FUE method leaves no scars and repopulates bald or thinning areas with the donor hairs from the back of the head, where the hair is strong and thick.
Why is Hair Restoration needed?
Hair loss is such a common concern that 66% of men will experience some degree of thinning hair by the age of 35. Whether the hair loss is caused by genetics, medical conditions, age, or other factors, it can often be effectively reversed. The most effective treatment options to reverse hair loss are PRP and PRF, NeoGraft Hair Transplantation, and FUE Hair Transplantation. Dr. Alizadeh is an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon in Long Island whose hair restoration methods incorporate these treatments and have achieved excellent patient satisfaction and outstanding results.

Hair Restoration vs Hair Transplants
Hair restoration is designed to restore thick, healthy hair growth in areas where the hair is thinning or beginning to go bald. Hair restoration treatments vary and may include medications, topical treatments, and other procedures, including hair transplantation.
Hair transplantation is a specific procedure that includes artfully moving a portion of the hair follicles from the dense growth in the back of the head to the bald or balding areas. The thick, healthy hair follicles are removed and then inserted into the thinning or bald area, where they grow as they did before. The result is renewed, healthy hair growth.
Areas of hair restoration
Hair restoration is commonly performed on other areas besides the scalp. Hair restoration can be performed to achieve thick hair growth in these additional areas:
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When can I return to work after hair transplantation?
Most patients are able to return to work after a few days, although tiny scabs will form around the newly implanted hairs, and they will take about ten days to fall off.
Is it painful?
Both PRP injections and hair transplantation treatments are performed with local or topical anesthetic. Anesthetic is continued during longer transplantation procedures to ensure you are comfortable throughout your full treatment.
Will there be scarring after hair transplants?
Hair transplantation leaves tiny punctures that cause only unnoticeable scars. Hair transplantation patients can have short or long hair–they don’t need to hide scars, as they aren’t visible.
How long before I can be in public after hair transplantation?
This depends on how comfortable you are with the results after hair transplantation. After 2-3 days, you will be able to return to your usual activities. However, there will be scabs on your scalp that you may feel self-conscious about. You may wear a hat to cover these or simply wait until the scabs naturally rub off in ten days.
Do I need anesthesia for hair restoration treatments?
General anesthesia is not required for FUE or PRP procedures, but local anesthesia is used.
What's the cost of hair transplantation in Long Island?
The cost of hair transplantation depends on the number of hair follicles transplanted. The cost of hair transplantation is calculated per hair graft. The average cost ranges from $4,000 to $12,000.
How long does hair transplantation take?
Hair transplantation generally takes between 4-8 hours. The time it takes depends on the number of grafts required.
Can women benefit from hair restoration?
Hair restoration is designed to benefit both men and women. If you’re noticing that your hair is thinning or your part is widening, or you see balding areas on your head, head restoration or hair transplantation can be performed to reverse these effects.
