What is Hair Transplant?

Hair loss occurs in a large population of the male society. This condition is caused primarily by a combination of aging, a change in hormones, and a family history of baldness. Burns or trauma can also cause hair loss. Women have also been known to suffer from hair loss, which is usually caused by aging, illness, or hormonal changes after menopause. There have been many options to restore a full head of hair. One of these options is hair transplant surgery.

Hair transplant surgery is a procedure where hair-bearing grafts and flaps are taken from the head and relocated to bald or thinning areas. Healthy hair growth at the back and sides of the head typically serve as these donor areas. There are various techniques used during hair transplant surgery, these include punch grafts, mini-grafts, micro-grafts, slit grafts, strip grafts, flaps, tissue-expansion and scalp-reduction. Several sessions may be needed to achieve optimal results. Also the final results of your hair transplant may not be evident for months, possibly a year after undergoing the first surgical treatment.
