Chemotherapy Hair Regrowth
If you’re a cancer patient who wants hair restoration after chemo and/or radiation therapy, Dr. Barusco and his team at Tempus Hair Restoration offer the compassionate care you need after battling this devastating disease. As a board certified surgeon, Dr. Barusco has a depth of medical knowledge not found with many other hair restoration specialists.
With his surgical training, Dr. Barusco also places a higher importance on safety than competing practices. This is especially important if you have a weakened immune system following chemo, radiation or other cancer treatments. Your hair is washed before and after surgery, and you wear disposable scrubs to avoid any germs entering the surgery room. The entire team is dressed in safety gear in order to further protect you. These small details help create a comfortable atmosphere that provides the safest possible results.
Offering More Hair Treatment for Cancer Patients Options
Tempus Hair Restoration offers a full variety of hair treatments for cancer patients. These include procedures to cover bald areas caused by burns, radiation therapy and surgeries to the scalp and face:
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
Dr. Barusco individually extracts follicular units from the donor’s hair-bearing region using small punches. Though effective, this procedure requires your donor area be shaved in order to harvest each individual graft.
In this procedure, Dr. Barusco can harvest follicle units without shaving the entire harvest section of your hair. Tempus Hair Restoration is the only Central Florida practice where you can get this treatment.
Commonly called the “strip” method of hair transplantation, Dr. Barusco removes hair from the donor area of the scalp by removing a strip of skin and hair. Hair follicles are then harvested from the strip and implanted in the balding areas.
Not every patient is a candidate for hair transplant surgery. Fortunately, Dr. Barusco offers a full array of medical treatments to stop hair loss and encourage growth. This includes Propecia, Rogaine and other solutions.
