African American Hair Transplants for Men and Women
For patients of certain ethnic heritage and hair types, it can be especially helpful to seek out an experienced hair transplant surgeon familiar with the full spectrum of hair loss patterns, transplant challenges, and hair restoration goals in order to achieve an optimal outcome. Our hair restoration surgeon, Carrie Houssock, MD, FACS has a deep understanding of the varied techniques required to create world-class hair transplants for all hair types. Specifically, Dr. Houssock has advanced expertise in customized hair restoration procedures for African American patients and patients of African descent. To accomplish successful hair transplants for men and women with this hair type, it is critical to understand the unique hair loss concerns they may be experiencing, as well as the transplant approaches that are best suited for creating a natural look and style.
If you are struggling with hair loss and looking for a hair restoration specialist who is knowledgeable in hair transplants specifically for African American men and women and patients of African descent, we encourage you to contact JEV Plastic Surgery & Medical Aesthetics to schedule a consultation. We also invite you to continue exploring this page to learn more about every aspect of the hair transplant process so that you can make well-informed choices about your treatment:
If you are considered to be a good candidate for hair transplant surgery, or another procedure such as hairline lowering, your surgeon will discuss her plan for accomplishing your treatment goals. You can be assured that our surgeon understands the often unique hairline traits and cultural/stylistic preferences of African American patients and patients of African descent, and she will develop a customized hair transplant surgical plan tailored to your individual needs and desired specifications. It is usually helpful to bring in a photo of your hair at a younger age to help your surgeon create the most natural look possible. The goal is always to create thicker hair coverage in thinning areas, along with a more defined, youthful, and symmetrical hairline. Your surgeon will explain the techniques she plans to use along with the outcome you can hope to achieve following surgery. If desired, you will be able to look through before-and-after photos of our hair transplant patients who share your similar hair type and hair loss challenges and examine the results they were able to achieve.
“I had a very positive experience with Dr. Carrie Houssock. I am so pleased with my new hairline. I do want to note that I am an African American female so it is really difficult to find someone who understands our hair patterns and face anatomy to produce such natural results. I am looking forward to getting my second-stage hair transplants in the near future. I’ve referred three friends of mine to her and they had a positive experience as well. If you’re looking for a great cosmetic surgeon, look no further than Dr. Houssock. ”
