According to the American Society of Cosmetic Surgeons, there are as many as 50 million American men who are bald or have thinning hairlines. If you are one of these 50 million men, you know how it can affect your self-esteem, especially when poll after poll shows that those with hair are more attractive to women. Polls have even shown that employers are more likely to hire a man with hair than his bald competitor. Not only do men struggle with hair loss, there are countless women showing signs of hair loss each day.
Hair transplantation has been around since the 1950s, but the technology, techniques, and knowledge about male pattern baldness have improved by leaps and bounds since then. More hair can be transplanted or restored in a shorter amount of time with better results today.
Oakland-area cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gabriel Patino at the Cosmetic Surgical Center of El Cerrito has been successfully performing hair transplant procedures since 1997.

Hair Restoration FAQs
Yes, hair restoration with hair transplantation is a proven technique that can restore the hairline and help produce a fuller head of hair. Best of all, the transplanted hair will continue to have healthy, natural growth, effectively reversing the effects of hair loss.
Prior to hair transplant, a numbing agent will be administered to the scalp to minimize any discomfort. You can expect minor discomfort during your hair transplant treatment and recovery process, but many patients find the experience to be quite tolerable, and well-worth the results.
The hair transplant procedure is performed with the aid of anesthetic techniques, numbing the scalp prior to the treatment. As a result, the hair transplant process involves little to no pain, and most patients are able to sit comfortably for the duration of the treatment. While there may be some minor discomfort during the recovery process, this pain can be easily managed with pain medications and by following your recovery guidelines.
There is no perfect age for a hair transplant. In fact, anyone who is beginning to notice the effects of hair loss may benefit from hair transplant treatments. As long as you are a healthy candidate for treatment and are interested in using hair transplantation to correct hair loss, you might be the perfect age for hair transplant! For most patients, this occurs at some point in the 30s or 40s.
