Every year in the United States, about an average of 56 million people have hair loss, that’s the population of  California and Texas combined! People seek surgeries for hair transplants mostly because of complete hair loss.

Brenda Najera is 22 year-old Natural Hair Transplant Surgeon. She earned her Degree in Medical Studies and Medical assistance from Santa Ana College. She works in a Hair Transplant medical center in Newport Beach, California. The Hair Transplant medical Center helps restore hair loss and provide natural results on a patient.

There are only two techniques that are used for hair transplants such as FUT short for Follicular Unit Transplantation and FUE Follicular Unit Extraction. FUT is a hair restoration technique where a patient’s hair is transplanted in naturally occurring groups of 1 to 4 which are called follicular units.

FUE is where the patient’s hair would be minimal invasive hair transplant technique where follicular units grafts are individually removed from patient’s donor area  individually transplanted to the thinning area. At the Medical clinic they only perform FUT. In recent studies it has proven to have the best results in regrowth of hair.

When patients want to get hair transplants they usually don’t know that there are some challenges when it comes to the times of hair they have. When some people have thin hair, it has a low density compared to caucasian hair which is more thicker with a higher density. “Although some cases are tougher than others there is no better feeling of happiness when the patient comes back for a follow up and is very satisfied with their ending results,” stated Najera.

Helping people restore their hair, make them feel better about themselves which is why it inspires hair transplant surgeons like Brenda Najera to pursue this occupation, “I take pride in what I do and it is a reward to see our patients happy, some advice I can give to young people wanting to pursue this career is that you have to be very trained because not everyone can do this, it takes patience but more than anything you must be kind and truly care for the patients,” stated Najera.
