Daniel McGrath, D.O. – Houston Hair Restoration Doctor
Houston Hair Restoration Doctor Daniel McGrath, D.O. is such a successful Hair Restoration Surgeon because he has personal experience and can relate to his patients on that level. Plagued by male pattern baldness since his mid 20’s, Dr. McGrath finally sought a solution in Surgical Hair Transplant. It had such a positive effect on his life that he devoted and focused his knowledge to studying Hair Restoration Surgery under some of the most respected physicians in the industry.
Daniel McGrath, D.O. has the honor of being named one of only 10 worldwide Directors for the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery. He offers free personal consultations both in person and by Skype, conducting all initial consultation appointments himself. This ensures that he has enough time to answer your questions as well as conduct an evaluation and discuss all available treatment options.
Surgical Hair Restoration
Male pattern baldness is a hereditary genetic condition that causes the hair follicles on the top and crown of your scalp to fall out over time. However, the hair on the back of your scalp often remains unaffected. This makes it ideal for a hair transplant. During Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT), Dr. McGrath removes a donor strip containing healthy hair follicles from the back of your head. He then extracts the follicles in groups of one to four hairs each and transfers them to your balding areas.
Daniel McGrath, D.O. uses a technique called trichophytic donor closure to minimize scarring. He also employs ultra-refined FUT to ensure the precise transfer of one to four hairs per follicle into tiny slits on the balding areas of your scalp. Hair Restoration Doctors who do not use this ultra-refined tactic may transfer up to six individual hairs without grouping them into follicular units. This can result in an unnatural appearance of the transferred grafts as well as the potential for unnecessary wounding.
With Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), Houston Hair Restoration Doctor Daniel McGrath uses a circular punch approximately one millimeter in diameter to extract individual hair follicles. The benefit of FUE over FUT is that it does not leave a linear scar on the scalp, which means you can wear your hair short after the procedure if you prefer. However, it is a labor-intensive procedure due to the individual follicle extractions.
Dr. McGrath is one of the first Hair Restoration Doctors in Texas to use NeoGraft with FUE. The robotic NeoGraft enables him to obtain several hundred more hair grafts per hour than he could manually. This reduces the total time required for the hair transplant surgery considerably. Since the follicles come out in a smoother fashion, the entire process is more comfortable for the patient. FUE is also available for eyebrow and beard transplants.
Non-Surgical Hair Restoration
Women with thinning hair and younger men are often good candidates for Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) or ACell with PRP. These are the two non-surgical hair restoration procedures offered by Dr. McGrath. With LLLT, you wear a Capillus laser hat that emits low light levels onto your scalp. The light travels to the cells of your hair follicles to stimulate new growth as well as stop the progression of hair loss. You wear the cap in the comfort of your own home for 30 minutes every other day.
ACell with PRP takes advantage of the natural healing capabilities present in your blood platelets. When you come in for an appointment, Daniel McGrath, D.O. obtains a blood sample and places it in a spinning centrifuge to separate the PRP. He then mixed it with saline solution, numbs your scalp, and injects the PRP. One treatment every several months is enough to provide promising hair re-growth results, particularly for women who had few options until now.
