Before pursuing a hair transplant, it must be understood that the donor area, the area at the back of the head where hair grafts are taken from, is very limited by nature. As such, Dr. Prasad usually maps out the amount of hairs that can potentially be harvested from the donor area in order to be placed into the areas of the scalp where hair loss is apparent.

To achieve natural coverage, one would need about 40-50 hair grafts in a square centimeter of scalp. This is limited, however, by the circumference of skin needed around the hair graft to ensure its survival. As such, only about 20 grafts can be placed into one square centimeter of scalp. Because of this, patients may need more than one transplant.

Due to the inherent limitations of hair transplants, Dr. Prasad developed a non-surgical hair loss treatment called Hair Regeneration. Hair Regeneration makes use of a wound-healing technologies extracellular matrix (ECM) by ACell and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) which is administered by injection directly into the areas with hair loss. It is proven to reverse hair thinning in over 99% of male patients, especially for those with active or ongoing hair thinning. It is so effective that, in the right candidate, it can exceed the results of two hair transplants.
