Top Five Questions
Question #5
The Benefits of PAI’s Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ Procedure?
MUHG, or Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™, is so sought after because it delivers a natural result, giving more hair volume or coverage than more traditional methods such as Follicular Unit Grafting alone.

I had a lot of hair loss and am convinced that I could not have gotten as much coverage with any other type of procedure. PAI was able to give me about all of my hair back!
Question #4
Are the results permanent?
This is another common question and concern for people seeking hair transplantation as a solution to thinning hair and loss of hair. Providing that an individual is a candidate, the results are most typically permanent for the remainder of one’s life.
Most Recent Response
The results look quite natural. Everyone that knows I had the procedure have told me that it looks great and natural. Most have not said anything other than you look great. Today I had my annual physical and the nurse repeated the phrase that “you look great.” Whatever you are doing, keep it up.
Question #2
How soon can I go back to work?
This question is one we get often and, fortunately, the answer is sooner than you may think. Some variable factors do need to be taken into account.

I had a level 12 done so it was a week for me. I wore a hat quite a bit for the first few weeks. There was no pain at all during the day, just a little uncomfortable sleeping the first few nights. I’m glad I made the decision to do it.
Question #3
How natural are the results?
Today’s modern hair transplantation techniques are totally natural. The older “plug” or “corn row” type procedures are no longer commonplace. The key to a natural result is tailoring the procedure to the hair type and needs of the individual.

At three months post-op, I didn’t have to tie my long hair back anymore to cover up the spot! That’s how fast I saw results. Dr. Waesche did an excellent job of grafting the hairs so that they created a natural swirl pattern that looks completely normal. I am extremely pleased with my results.
Question #1
Does it hurt?
People tend to notice little to no discomfort during the actual procedure. This is in direct contrast to the old methods of yesteryear when modern pain-management techniques were more archaic and less efficient.

I am 4 months post-op. The operation itself wasn’t painful at all. I could feel a little pressure at times but really no pain. At one point I felt a very slight sting, kind of like a mild bee sting, but it was only for a few seconds, but even that was minimal. I had some mild discomfort in the first few days after the procedure but it certainly wasn’t painful. I had a little tightness in the area in the back but when the suture came out that quickly eased. All in all I would have to say that it was much easier than I thought it would be.
