Surgical Hair Restoration

Restore your natural appearance with our affordable and effective hair loss treatment options!

Two Types of Hair Transplants

If you make the decision to go with a hair restoration procedure to replace thinning hair, choosing the right procedure can be daunting. PAI is a great resource because we offer nearly every type of effective surgical and non-surgical hair restoration option in order to meet the needs of all our patients.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

PAI Medical Group has chosen the ARTAS robotic FUE system over all other FUE devices. Precision in surgery is important. The ARTAS system is faster, more accurate, and the most advanced by a wide margin, making it the best FUE solution available today.

Follicular Unit Transplants (FUT)

Traditional FUT procedures can't compare to PAI’s trademarked Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ (MUHG) procedure. This procedure is the best choice for patients who need the most hair possible. It typically delivers up to double the hair density in the same period of time.

  • Is a safe and effective procedure trademarked by PAI Medical.

Hair loss on the top of the head, otherwise known as androgenetic alopecia, is a progressive, degenerative problem that results in the loss of hair on the scalp and affects both the physical and emotional well-being. Without treatment, alopecia can become a cyclical concern that could cause hair loss over several years.

While certain people may not be candidates for hair transplantation, with new harvesting techniques and our unique process for treating hair loss, the number of candidates for hair transplants is increasing every year. At PAI Medical Indiana, our doctors create a natural hairline that is both age and gender specific, and matches our patients’ unique needs today and in the years to come.

Hair Transplant Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good candidate for a hair transplant from PAI Medical Indiana?

Most people suffering from androgenetic alopecia or other common hair loss types are candidates for hair transplantation with PAI Medical Indiana.

Hair loss candidacy essentially depends on three key elements:

  1. How much permanent hair you still have.
  2. The degree or severity of baldness or thinning you are experiencing relative to the amount of hair you still have.
  3. Your overall hair restoration goals and expectations – We place a high level of emphasis on a patient’s expectations, and an honest conversation regarding potential hair loss in the future and what you want to achieve long term with your hair transplant procedure is crucial.
Is there an ideal age to begin hair transplantation?

A commonly-debated subject among hair restoration surgeons, the ideal age range for hair transplantation isn’t as cut-and-dry as you might think. Research has shown transplanting in the early stages of hair loss could provide for easier concealment of hair loss, which would allow the patient to limit the appearance of thinning before it becomes noticeable.

At PAI Medical Indiana, we always recommend a private consultation for all of our prospective hair transplant patients, particularly patients under the age of 24. For patients that are a minor, we require the parent or guardian to be present during all consultations.

How many hairs will be transplanted?

One graft does not equal one hair. Our hair restoration physicians will harvest hair grafts from 1-7 hairs, depending on the area experiencing hair loss. For example, 1,200 grafts would equal an average of 5,000 to 7,000 hairs. This range of evenly distributed hair grafts will produce a natural hairline with the ideal density and coverage.

What is the difference between hair grafts and PAI Medical Levels?

A hair graft can contain anywhere from 1 to 10 hairs, generally speaking. A large number hair restoration clinics charge for hair transplants by the graft. The problem with this approach?

Because the number of grafts is unique to each and every patient and every procedure, predicting a consistent range in order to provide accurate pricing is quite difficult, making it a bit of a mystery in many cases as to how much the final cost of your hair transplant will actually be.

The PAI Medical Levels measure number of hairs, not hair grafts, and the general area to be covered in the procedure, which reduces confusion for the patient and allows us to offer more affordable transplant options.

How many sessions will I need to achieve results?

One of the many benefits of our Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ procedure is that we reduce the number of procedures by moving more hair in each procedure. Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ allows up to twice the normal hair volume compared to traditional Follicular Unit hair transplants. So you’re provided a much better value to meet your hair restoration goals, often in only 1 or 2 procedures.

How long after my hair transplant procedure will I begin to see hair growth?

Generally, hair growth occurs within 3-5 months after the hair transplant procedure. The number of new hairs will continue to increase for 12 months.

What type of post-operative care does PAI Medical Indiana provide?

We highly recommend a hair loss prevention program for all of our patients at PAI Medical Indiana. For more information on what you should expect after your hair transplant procedure, please review our hair restoration process.

How soon can I go back to work after the procedure?

We recommend that activity in general is restricted during the first 24 hours after the procedure, as well as limiting physically demanding activities within the first 10 days, or until your sutures are removed.

You can return to work within a day or two following your procedure depending on the level of strain your occupation requires, in addition to your overall comfort level following the procedure.
