Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does insurance cover hair transplantation?
A: Most insurance providers consider hair transplantation to be a cosmetic procedure and therefore do not provide financial coverage. When you choose hair restoration, you will have an entire team of specialized, experienced hair restoration professionals who are focused on getting you the results you desire.
Q: What is the procedure and recovery like?
A: Hair transplantation is a procedure performed under local anesthesia in an outpatient setting, either in the office or an outpatient surgery center. It involves the transfer of hair (“grafts”) from a non-balding location (“donor site”) into your thinning areas (“recipient site”) to help you regain a fuller, thicker head of hair.
The procedure is done in one-day and recovery time is minimal. It may take up to a full year before your best results are achieved and a successful outcome is determined, so patience is required. Postoperative instructions include rest and allowing the sites to heal.
