Hair loss evaluation and Diagnosis

Jolie Plastic Surgery has the best specialists for your evaluation and treatment of hair loss. With the most advanced scientific techniques, we can discover the cause of hair loss and the most effective treatment. We are used to dealing with patients who have suffered from hair loss and scalp disorders and we have always achieved surprising results and the people who come to our clinic are happy and satisfied.

First, we obtain the patient's medical history with a detailed examination using the best tools available in this field. If necessary, there will also be blood tests to find out about the deficiencies or imbalances that may be causing the condition of hair loss. Some tests will be carried out, which will include:

  • Microscopic exam of bulbs and hair shafts:During this test, we examine any abnormality. We carefully evaluate the torsion of the hair shaft, the bubbles in the central cortex or any other unusual feature. The fixing of the hair to the scalp is also observed.
  • Hair density: This test will help us to know the amount of hairs present per cm2 in the scalp. A small area of the scalp is trimmed around 1 mm in length.
  • Measuring hair mass: This method is one of the most accurate available today. The smallest change in the number of hairs and their size can be detected. It can also be used to predict baldness years before it starts to appear. The methods will take about 10 minutes and hair cutting is sometimes not necessary.
  • Norwood classification: This is a graphical series that classifies the process of baldness in stages. This Norwood classification is used to assess how advanced the hair loss is for the man who comes to our clinic.
Hair loss evaluation - density
  • Ludwig classification: This is the classification of the three progressive stages of hair loss in women also employed during the evaluation.
  • Videomicrospy: Hairs of all lengths can be seen by microscopic video visualization. This helps to identify the pattern of hair loss.
  • Scalp biopsy: Some cases may require it, especially in patients suffering from scarring alopecia.

Choosing the best hair transplant procedure for you

New technologies have made the process of hair transplantation easier every day. Finding the best technique for you is not that difficult. In our clinic, we will give you all the details.

There are the techniques FUE (extraction of follicular units), FUG (follicular unit of graft, or strip), and an older technique called FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant), which is also offered in Jolie Plastic Surgery. These techniques have benefits and disadvantages.

FUE is becoming very popular these days, as it avoids the linear scar on the donor site. Jolie Plastic Surgery promotes this technique as it provides more advantages for patients.

The FUG technique will require that the back and side of the head be shaved and also tend to be more expensive due to the amount of time spent during the procedure.

Just remember that all these techniques must be done correctly by a professional in order to obtain the maximum result and create a natural appearance. While it is important to consider the technique that best suits your case, essential for good results, it is to choose an experienced specialist and well prepared in this process of hair transplantation.


At Jolie Plastic Surgery, we frequently use Neograft as the most advanced hair transplant technique that helps with the collection of follicles during the FUE hair transplant process.

This method is faster than the other manuals previously used. There is no torsion or pull that can damage the graft thanks to Neograft-controlled pneumatic pressure, which helps to suck the graft easily.

The follicles are taken from the hair on the back of the head, which continues to grow naturally. Follicles are living tissues that grow cyclically. Once the follicles have been implanted in the area of baldness, the hair will remain for approximately 2-3 weeks and then comes the detachment.

After hair removal, the new growth should start about three to four months and the hair will eventually grow normally at about 8 or 9 months.


During the Miami hair transplant process:

  • You will receive a local anesthetic to numb the skull root and a medication that will keep you relaxed.
  • The scalp is carefully cleaned.
  • The follicular units are extracted with the Neograft machine.
  • The areas that will receive these grafts are cleaned.
  • The specialist placed the healthy grafts very precisely. The specialist places these grafts manually.
  • Thousands of hair can be transplanted during a single treatment session.
  • After the hair transplant process the patient will recover in our facilities but for a short period of time, after a few hours, you can return home.
  • You must be accompanied, as a precautionary measure, so that you do not have to drive back to your home.


The price of a procedure like this varies a lot. Always keep in mind that depends on the technique chosen by the patient and specialist, the number of grafts needed by the person and how the scalp reacts to the procedure. Sometimes more than one session is needed.

At Jolie Plastic Surgery, we frequently perform the Miami hair transplant process with Neograft. The grafts have a value of between 8 and 10 dollars approximately. When we adjust a price with customers, this will cover them:

  • Anesthesia.
  • Specialist's fees.
  • Medical tests
  • Grafts.
  • Use of our facilities.

We are aware that many times people who come to our clinic need help to pay for procedures. Thinking of you we have financing plans. The Care Credit in which you have to be pre-approved and the Lay Away plan, in which you must make a minimum deposit of 500 dollars and then you can pay a monthly fee with a 0% interest.


How do I find a good surgeon?

Each surgical procedure will need a good surgeon to obtain positive results. It is important to choose a surgeon with skill, talent, and experience. The surgeon you choose will determine how natural your hair will look for the rest of your life. Call Jolie Plastic Surgery and ask for your first free appointment, here we will give you all the information you need about our specialists and more.

How many sessions will I need?

Everything depends on the reception area that will be covered with transplanted hair grafts. This will determine the number of procedures you need. The scalp contains an average amount of 100,000 follicles before losing hair. Patients generally do not pay attention to hair loss until about 50% of the hair is lost. The faster you go for treatment, the more chances you will have and the fewer sessions you will need.

Is this hair transplant process safe?

All hair transplant procedures are safe, as long as they are performed by trained medical personnel. It is a minor outpatient procedure with a minimum of risks.

The automated FUE is performed under local anesthesia. This technique is less risky and invasive than the previous ones.

Will I have a loss from trauma after surgery?

Losing hair after surgery is perfectly normal. Just remember that the transplanted grafts are healthy and the hair will eventually grow back. This loss is sometimes the result of trauma, but at other times it is not.

The most common cause of hair loss is when the surgeon damages the existing hair follicles in the areas where the hair is being transplanted. Even the most experienced surgeons can cause some hair to fall out prematurely but the hair will grow back.

In what time will I see that the new hair will grow?

Remember that during the first 3 months the probability is that you will lose that hair so that the graft causes the exit of the new and strengthened hair. After 4 months you will begin to notice the change and at approximately 8 months you will be able to see some results.

There are many adverse reactions?

The process of hair transplantation does not have many risks. But as any procedure can suffer from Inflammation, bleeding, the appearance of scabs; but all these effects are treatable and disappear with time and treatment.

Will I need a lot of time to recover? What should I do after the hair transplant process?

The head should remain elevated during the first 10 days after surgery. No strong physical activity is allowed. The effort, exercises, sun exposure, all these activities must recess during the first week.

Patients can wear a loose-fitting hat two days after surgery and can also begin to gently wash the scalp at that time with the shampoo we will give you at the clinic. They are also given creams to help with healing in the donor area.

The hair should not be cut or brushed until all the scabs disappear due to the risk of removing the grafts. Once the scalp is recovered, normal activities can resume on days 10 or 14 days after treatment.

Is it necessary to shave before the Miami hair transplant process?

It is necessary to shave the donor area (back of the scalp) before a hair transplant procedure FUE. However, the rest of the head does not usually need to be shaved, especially in the hair area. At Jolie Plastic Surgery, we recommend patients with longer hair, that some clipping is done since sometimes creating receptor sites and placing grafts is more difficult in patients with longer hair.

Is the FUE hair transplant the best technique?

Both methods produce very good results. The extraction of the follicular unit has the advantage of minimizing the scar. The only disadvantage of extracting the follicular unit is that the area where the donor's graphics are obtained should be shaved. The method of the strip leaves a long and possibly visible linear scar, however, it is not necessary to shave the hair so that it can be more visible during the period of the procedure.

How much do 1500 FUE grafts cost?

The cost of FUE extraction or follicular unit is usually $ 8 to $ 10 per graft, depending on the doctor you choose. Keep in mind that cost is only one aspect to consider. Choose your doctor according to consistent results.

Consider how long your doctor has been performing the hair transplant process in Miami and how skilled the team around you is. The result you will receive will be permanent and, therefore, you should investigate and make a decision that is not based solely on cost.
