Doctors have been practicing this kind of transplant since the 50s of the last century in the United States. Through the last decades, however, new techniques have emerged, promising quick and satisfactory results. Currently, the main types of hair transplants are follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE). Your doctor will pick the right type for you.

If you’re physically healthy, have realistic expectations, and still have areas of thick hair on your scalp, then you might be a good candidate for a hair transplant. Also, both men and women can undergo this surgery regardless of their race. This surgery is also appropriate for you if you: Suffer from male pattern baldness Lost some hair due to scalp injury or burn Able to grow hair on the thinning area of your scalp

Hair may fall out at first, but then the follicles begin to grow again.

The extent of the pain depends on the patient’s sensation. The patient is given local anesthesia to numb the area and prevent pain.

The hair transplant process takes between 2 to 8 hours, depending on the quantity of hair that will be transplanted.

Diet choices and certain lifestyle habits- such as smoking and stressful encounters-can also cause your hair to fall out.

The time required to recover after the procedure varies from one patient to another. Some patients can recover after 15 days.
