"Dr Eagan did my breast aug in March 2020. I searched for months before selecting a doctor and the reason I chose her is because her personality is outstanding!! She is by far the kindest doctor I have ever met!!! She is not a doctor that will put too much on your body if your body can not handle it. I told her what I wanted and she went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with my results! I am 4 months post op and I swear I fall in love with my procedure results all over again every single day! We are already discussing lip injections because she is just absolutely fantastic! Always available when I needed her and every appointment she has always greeted me as a friend and made sure I had a great appointment!! Wish I could give more stars to her!! Make sure to check her out because you will NOT regret it"- S.S. / Google / Jul 23, 2020

"I had an incredible experience with Dr. Eagan at New Orleans Plastic Surgery. Dr. Eagan is very talented and knowledgeable. After two pregnancies that left me with irreversible damage to my stomach, I had a tummy tuck with abdominal muscle repair. My results exceeded my expectations. Dr. Eagan patiently addressed all of my questions. She gave me options for my specific situation and was not pushy about adding any additional unnecessary procedures. I was given all of the information I needed prior to surgery and for after-care. She was readily available in the days following the surgery for any concerns and gave me the right combination of medication to keep me out of pain. I followed all of her directions and feel like I had a quick and successful recovery. I couldn’t be happier with my incision. It is really straight, thin, symmetrical, no dog ears, and well placed. Having my muscle separation repaired restored my ability to properly workout, dance, and do all of the things I was lacking the confidence to do. I’m so happy to have my life and body back.LikeShare"- V.R. / Yelp / May 01, 2023

What causes Hair Loss?
The general term for balding is alopecia, and it happens if the hair growth stages become disrupted. Some hair loss conditions are temporary while others are permanent. For many men and women, their hair loss is caused by androgenetic alopecia. Also known as male and female pattern hair loss, this condition happens for a variety of reasons, including age, genetics, and androgens (male hormones). Genetic baldness can come from either side of your family tree and can skip a generation. Unfortunately, hereditary hair loss is extremely common, and it affects approximately 30 – 50 million women and men in the U.S. The other types of hair loss conditions include:
- Alopecia Areata
- Telogen Effluvium
- Anagen Effluvium
- Traction Alopecia
Other factors that may impact hair development cycles or damage hair follicles include medical and scalp conditions, nutritional deficiencies, medications, hormonal imbalance, physical injury, and haircare. Hair loss can occur in specific areas on the scalp or all over.
our Hair Loss Treatment Options
Recent advancements have made it possible for men and women to slow or reduce hair loss. At New Orleans Plastic Surgery in Louisiana, our group provides a variety of innovative, nonsurgical treatments, including:
- Therapeutic scalp and hair product
- Compounded hair growth medications
- Nutritional supplements
- Dietary modifications
- Low-level laser therapy

While 95 – 98% of male pattern baldness is caused by genetics, hormones, and aging, women's hair loss may be caused by different factors. Because of this, we will use a multi-therapeutic approach to combat your hair condition, which helps slow or stop hair loss, enhances your hair, or encourages new growth.
What should I expect after hair restoration?
There's no downtime following this process, with almost no limitations or restrictions. If anything, patients may develop some redness, minimal swelling, and mild discomfort to the treated regions. These symptoms may last up to two days. While outcomes differ for each individual, aesthetic results are usually noticed approximately 4 – 6 months after the first treatment and may continue to improve for as much as a complete year following treatment. This not a permanent solution for reversing hair loss, repeat treatments are highly recommended every 12 – 18 months. It is necessary to note that hair restoration doesn't grow new hair follicles in areas where you are already bald. It is used to help reverse the miniaturization of hair follicles so they will create healthier, thicker, longer hair fibers.

Hair Restoration FAQ
How effective is PRP therapy to treat hair loss?
PRP therapy for hair loss can be very effective, but results will depend on your level of hair loss, the number of treatments you get, your aesthetic goals, and other factors. It can take time for new hair growth to appear after PRP therapy, so it is important to be patient with your results. During your consultation at New Orleans Plastic Surgery, Dr. Eagan will examine your hair, talk to you about your goals, and design a treatment plan that is best for you. Most patients will need periodic PRP treatments to maintain their results.
Are PRP injections for hair loss painful?
Before we begin the PRP injections into your scalp, and while the PRP serum is prepared, an anesthetic will be applied to your scalp to keep you comfortable. Most patients don't experience any discomfort during their procedure. After your PRP injections, your scalp will still be numb, but this is temporary and will go away fairly quickly.
Does low-level laser therapy really work to regrow hair?
Studies have shown that low-level laser therapy appeared effective for hair growth in both men and women. A 2013 men's study found that after over four months of treatment, participants showed an almost 40% increase in hair growth.
