Franklin Hair Restoration Information

Hair Transplant Surgery

Hair transplantation begins with the excision of donor hair follicles from the back and sides of the head, where the hair is naturally resistant to balding. The doctor will then implant a single follicular unit, with 1-3 hairs, into the affected area, where they continue to grow as normal. In essence, hair transplant surgery is just a simple matter of distributing healthy hair to the areas experiencing loss.

Hair Transplant Surgery has come a long way since its' development in the '60s and '70s. Gone are the days of large hair grafts produced by round punches, which were lambasted for their "doll's head" look. These days, with the advent of micro-grafts and follicular unit grafting, there have been amazing improvements in the quality of patients' results. Hair transplant surgeons have also developed techniques for insertion that mimic the natural growth pattern of your hair and do not result in scarring, producing results that are virtually indistinguishable from your actual hair and will continue to grow for the rest of their natural life.

Eyebrow Hair Restoration

Eyebrow Hair Restoration is actually very similar to hair transplant surgery. Donor hair is taken from the scalp and implanted in the eyebrow area. Over the years, eyebrow hair can thin and fall out just like hair on the scalp. For anyone wishing for the plentiful, well-defined brow of their youth, eyebrow hair restoration could be the answer!

Non-Surgical Hair Restoration - Propecia and Rogaine

There are many non-surgical hair restoration products that claim to prevent hair loss, but there are only two that have been proven to be effective - Propecia and Rogaine. Both of these treatments work by improving the body's chemical levels that result in hair loss. Propecia is a once-daily oral tablet, and Rogaine is a topical ointment. So, which one is better for you? Well, there are many factors that will go into your decision. Both treatments have advantages and disadvantages associated with them and may be better for one person than another. The only tried-and-true method for making the decision is to meet with a hair restoration specialist to have your scalp and medical history evaluated. Fortunately, at Milwaukee Hair Restoration in Franklin, WI, we offer free consultations!



F A Q


What causes hair loss?

Hair loss can be caused by a number of factors, but genetics is usually the main one. That's not to say that you will definitely go bald if you have an uncle or grandfather with hair loss, but, if so, you may be at a higher risk. Stress, illness and medication are also common causes of hair loss. Unfortunately, these can't be remedied with the treatments offered by Dr. Mixter, so before deciding on the right course of action, we suggest scheduling a consultation at Milwaukee Hair Restoration to have the causes of your hair loss evaluated.

How effective is Hair Restoration?

Hair Transplantation is the only permanent treatment for hair loss on the market, and the follicular unit transplantation technique used by Dr. Mixter is one of the most effective methods around. It has been shown to have a 95% graft survival rate, meaning less follow-up treatments and more natural-looking results. Other treatments, such as Rogaine and Propecia, have also been shown to have superb results, especially when preventing further thinning among patients with little hair loss. Some patients have even experienced re-growth of hair with these products!

How much does Hair Restoration cost?

To get an accurate idea of the cost of hair restoration, you will need to visit us for an in-person consultation. Since each individual's level of hair loss is unique, the treatments have to be personalized to your needs. To give you a general estimate, hair transplant surgery usually costs between $4,000 and $12,000.

After the surgery, what will the recovery be like?

Many people expect a full head of hair immediately following their surgery. Unfortunately, this isn't realistic. It can take 6 months to a year for the full results to develop, but when they do, patients can enjoy natural, healthy hair. In terms of the first few days, you will be required to wear a head dressing, and we ask that you to come in for a follow-up appointment to make sure that your scalp is healing well.

Will insurance help cover my procedure?

Insurance does not usually cover these procedures, since they are cosmetic in nature, and not medically necessary. However, financing options may be available to help pay for the procedure.

Which type of Hair Restoration is right for me?

This question is best left for Dr. Mixter or Dr. Blake, as we will need to see you in-person to get an accurate idea of your level of hair loss. Contact us today to schedule your free consultation!
