Hair Transplant

Best Hair Transplant

Hair loss, or alopecia, is a common problem that affects women and can be caused by stress, diseases, some medical treatments and genes. While some of these factors are, temporary or can be reversed, many suffer permanent hair loss that can lead to self-confidence issues. Hair transplantation surgery can help women suffering from baldness or thinning hair.

Are you a good candidate for Hair Transplant?

Mentioned below are some of the common reasons why you may want to consider hair transplantation:

  • You are suffering from female pattern baldness and have thinning hair problems
  • Your hair loss is not a result of medication, stress or medical treatment
  • Your hair loss is permanent and cannot be treated non-surgically
  • You have adequate hair growth or follicles than can be used for transplantation

If you are in good health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, then you are a good candidate for the procedure. How is a hair transplantation procedure performed?

How is a hair transplantation procedure performed?

The various methods available in hair transplantation depending on the area that is balding or thinning and what kind of look you are trying to achieve. In all cases, hair follicles are moved from one area of your body and grafted, or transferred, to the area that is lacking. The donor site is usually on the head.

Usually your surgeon will use local anesthesia in both the donor and recipient areas. On occasion, oral or IV sedation is added. Rarely is general anesthesia recommended. The donor area will be surgically removed, and the scar will be hidden by existing hair. The surgeon will usually divide the removed scalp into hundreds or perhaps even thousands of tiny segments, each containing a single or several hairs. These tiny pieces of your scalp will then be transplanted into the bald or thinning areas on your head.

A less common procedure involves moving hair as a flap of scalp skin that includes hundreds of hair follicles. The flap is repositioned into the area of hair loss replacing the balding scalp.

The quality and type of hair you have and where you are losing hair will factor into your aesthetic surgeon's decision on how much hair to transplant and from where to take the hair grafts.
