Your hair is one of the first things that people see when they look at you. This is one reason why hair loss can be so devastating and why it is important to make an informed decision regarding hair restoration.
The consultation appointment, at the Gabel Hair Restoration Center, is a key element in educating patients about this important decision. We will discuss a few aspects of a personal consultation appointment with Dr. Steven Gabel and how to get the most out of this appointment.
Before the Appointment
Before visiting a hair restoration center it is always good to do some preliminary research, about hair loss and options for restoring your hair. Keep a list of questions that come to mind to ensure that all questions are answered. It is also important to think about what you would ideally like to achieve with hair restoration and what would be satisfactory to you.
The Consultation Appointment
During the consultation appointment Dr. Gabel meets one on one with patients to discuss their situation, evaluate their scalp, answer their questions and create an effective treatment plan.
One of the first considerations is what is causing the hair loss. For the majority of hair loss sufferers, genetics are the culprit, but there are many other conditions that can cause temporary or permanent hair loss. If the cause is unclear Dr. Gabel may advise further testing to determine the cause prior to proceeding with a hair transplant or other treatment options.
Once realistic expectations have been established Dr. Gabel will discuss treatment options and recommend a treatment plan. This plan may consist of surgical hair restoration, medical treatments, further testing or a combination of these components.
Making your Decision
At the Gabel Hair Restoration Center we respect that hair restoration is a personal decision. After considering their options, Dr. Gabel encourages patients to call or return to the clinic, if needed, to review their surgical plan or to ask further questions, prior to scheduling their surgery. Remember surgical hair restoration is permanent. You want to have it done right the first time, and you deserve the best hair transplants in Oregon.
Everyone is different…shocking! Facial features, skin tone, and body sizes are all unique to you. This is the same case with the hair on your head.
Although this seems like an easy concept, a lot of people have trouble fully conceptualizing this. For example, no matter how much I try I will never be able to grow my hair like Johnny Depp. Unfortunately for me, it is just not in the cards.
Learning more about one’s own hair and hair loss is the first step before deciding on a hair transplant wa. Continue reading

Did your grandpa ever tell you to take off your hat or else you’ll go bald? While a convincing way to get a boy to take off his baseball cap, this notion is a myth.
A man who wears a hat for most of the day might notice natural hair loss more than a man who doesn’t, since the hair collects in the hat. However, there is no proof that wearing a baseball cap causes increased hair loss, as a Portland hair restoration surgeon will attest.
While it won’t cause hair loss, wearing a hat can cause hair damage. Continue reading
