Thank you for your question! Youre asking a question where you want to know how effective is stem cell therapy when combined with hair transplant? And you described in your question your situation of being 35 years old, being on finasteride for several years and that you are considering getting twenty two hundred grafts for the crown, mid scalp, frontal area. And that your suggested the use of stem cell therapy which would effectively act as fertilizer.
For the hair graft surgery. i can certainly give you my perspective. Im a board certified cosmetic surgeon and fellowship trained oculofacial plastic and reconstructive surgeon performing hair transplant and the use of wound healing technology or stem cellbased technology in my practice and Ive been in practice for over 20 years. Im also the founder of Trichostem Hair Regeneration centers which is a nonsurgical alternative to hair transplant based on stem cellbased wound healing technology and Ill.
Explain that further. i can certainly give you a lot of perspective on how weve developed what weve done with a similar concept when we were doing a lot of hair transplants. First of all, the unfortunate reality is the term stem cell therapy is too broad a term and its not clear in what way, what modality stem cell therapy is being applied in your situation but I can tell you this scenario on how we came to where we are in helping people with hair loss similar to yourself. For years, one of the biggest frustrations.
With hair transplant was the limitation of the number of grafts you can harvest and the survivability of the grafts when they are transplanted. Hair transplant is a very labor intensive procedure. It requires several hours and you are making, for twenty two hundred grafts, youre making twenty two hundred openings and on those twenty hundred openings, you may lose anywhere from 10% to 90% and weve seen that scenario play out when people have had mega sessions who came to us for assistance after theyve lost a lot of hair.
So we are using a material for wound healing called extracellular matrix and it was with the goal to help the donor area heal better, to help the grafts survive better and a sideeffect turned out to be that thinning hair actually became thicker. The concept of stem cell has to be defined. In the way that Im using it in our practice, is we are using a material called extracellular matrix which promotes the activation of adult stem cells. These are stem cells in your own body related to wound healing to create an effect to improve.
Wound healing. Now in a case like yours, youre essentially in a situation where in spite of finasteride, you are still progressing and that is not unusual. 60% of men will respond to finasteride but it is well established that finasteride doesnt stop progression, it does slow it down. Now in the photos you submitted, its clear that you still have existing hair in the crown or mid scalp area. Now one of the things, now Im not being critical of your.
but one of the things that is often understated in the hair transplant world is that when you are making those twenty two hundred openings, there is invariably a certain percentage of native hairs which get lost because those areas that you want to treat are not bald. There are actually a lot of miniaturized hairs. And with that being understood, it was a compromise we always made because we knew that those hairs were going to go anyway.
What i learned in our practice is that when we took someone like yourself and instead of doing a transplant, developed a treatment called Hair Regeneration where your existing hair, which is already there, stops thinning and reactivated hairs that are growing and makes thinning hair become thicker (phone rings.he restarts) When we see patients like yourself who are in a similar situation where you have a lot of existing hair that is thinning, when we use this treatment called Hair Regeneration,.
Gallbladder Removal Blossom Bariatrics Las Vegas
I really wanted to address the symptoms of gallbladder removal or gallbladder removal before your weight loss surgery. Many patients find that if you’ve had your gallbladder removed prior to your weight loss surgery, eating food and high fats can still cause those uncomfortable symptoms like running to the bathroom, the gurgling, the bloating, yeah, you name it, that’s usually not fun is it. So when you have your gallbladder removed, you no longer are able to have enough bile.
To break down fats found like in cheese, dairy products, and meats, like red meat, which are all perfect foods for postops. So what I have really found is that there’s a product out there called ox bile or ox bile salts and this product simply replaces the bile that your body would normally produce when you ingest, you know, high fat meats and diary products like cheese. So this product has been shown to help your body emulsify the fat so you don’t get those uncomfortable symptoms. Something else that goes hand in hand with.
Ox bile would be your digestive enzymes. Now if you didn’t catch it in my earlier tutorial, about the importance of digestive enzymes, digestive enzymes basically carry the wide range of digestive enzymes that your pancreas produces when you eat foods. So digestive enzymes in conjunction with ox bile are a great combination if you have the symptoms of having to go to the bathroom after you eat high fat foods.

Hi, my name is randa summers and i have always been an overweight child. ever since i was little, that’s all I could remember. Ever since first grade I was bullied quite a lot and food was the way that I turned and that became my addiction. Up into high school I continued to get bigger and bigger and bigger and I was always the biggest person in class. I went up to 315 pounds. I was borderline diabetic. I was also having quite a lot of back issues and I was to the point where I couldn’t stand on my feet for more than an hour. My knees.
Would swell because the cartilage was slowly wearing down. i just remember my mom calling me one day and saying I heard about this , Umbach and he does weight loss surgery and to me it had never been one of those options. I always thought well, if I wanted to lose the weight I was going to have to workout. Well I couldn’t work out because my knees hurt and there were so many things that were pushing against me, as well as depression and suicidal thoughts. So I just accepted that I was just going to die one day and it.
Was probably going to be from my weight. my mother continued to talk to me and said let’s do it, let’s do it. It’s time to start living. So that’s what we did. Me and my mother, on the same day got the gastric sleeve and now that we’re over a year out, I have lost over 90 pounds and I feel fantastic. Quite a few of my health issues have gone away. I don’t have high blood pressure anymore. I’m no longer in fear of having diabetes creep up on me and the cartilage in my knees is starting to repair itself slowly, but surely. I couldn’t.
