Hair Additions & Replacements

  • A small number of people with hair loss are not candidates for surgical or medical hair restoration. For these persons, hair additions or total hair replacement may be considered:
• A person with temporary total hair loss due to radiation or chemotherapy may be a candidate for temporary total hair replacement (a wig).

  • A person who is congenitally unable to grow hair may be a candidate for permanent total hair replacement (a wig, or several wigs for different occasions)
  • Hair additions may be a temporary measure for the person who wants hair loss corrected but is not yet ready to undergo hair transplantation.
  • Hair additions or replacements may be considered by the person who has too little donor dominant hair for use in hair transplantation.
Dr. El-Attar can recommend hair additions and replacements for those persons who are not candidates for surgical or medical hair restoration.
