What you can expect on the day of surgery?
Hair Transplant Surgery: On day of surgery, your surgeon will meet you in the preoperative area to go over any last minute questions or concerns you may have. He/she may make some preoperative markings and will perform extensive checks and attention to detail ensuring high quality care and safety. During the procedure, our surgeons pay meticulous attention to detail and work as a team to ensure a great result. Your family will be updated of your status periodically and will be able to talk with the physician one-on-one after the procedure is completed. You will be placed in a surgical dressing after the procedure and can go home after the procedure is complete.
PRP for Hair Restoration: On the day of your procedure, you will be greeted at The Oaks Plastic Surgery Clinic and will be brought back to the procedure room. Numbing cream can be placed to minimize any discomfort from the injections in the hairline. Your blood will be drawn and spun down to obtain the PRP, which will then be injected into the areas of hair loss.
