What is Hair Transplantation?

Hair transplantation is a procedure in which a plastic surgeon or dermatologist moves the hair to a bald area of the head. The surgeon usually moves hair from the back or side of the head to the front or top of the head.

Hair transplants are usually performed in a doctor's office under local anesthesia.

Baldness is responsible for most of the hair loss. It all comes down to genetics. The remaining cases are due to a variety of factors, including:

  • Diet

  • Fatigue

  • Diseases

  • Hormonal imbalance

  • Medicines

Are There Different Types of Hair Transplant?

There are two types of grafts: split grafts and micro grafts.

Split grafts contain 4 to 10 hairs per graft. Micrografts contain 1 to 2 hairs per graft, depending on the coverage needed.

Who Could Benefit from a Hair Transplant?

Getting a hair transplant can improve your appearance and self-esteem. Good candidates for a hair transplant include:

  • Men with male pattern baldness

  • Women with thin hair

  • Anyone who has lost their hair due to burns or scalp injuries
