Hair transplant

This type of procedure involves collecting live hair follicles from the sides and back of the head (donor areas) and embedding them in areas of the scalp that have become hairless. Before this surgery is performed, you should visit a surgeon for advice. The surgeon will make another diagnosis to decide if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure or not.

Advantages

  • It is generally a one-time treatment.

  • No other treatment can produce the kind of results that transplants give.

  • These offer a permanent solution for baldness

  • Embedding procedures have improved over the years and the latest technique known as FUE (follicular unit extraction) mimics the way hair develops naturally.

  • Hair transplants, especially FUE, nowadays leave insignificant scars.

Cons

  • Healing time may be longer in some cases.

  • These do not address the cause of baldness and thinning can occur in rare cases.

  • Occasionally more than 1 surgery may be required.

  • Medications may be necessary to keep up with new developments.

  • These are not suitable for teenagers or people who have not yet completed the hair loss cycle.

Remark: All these disadvantages are easily solved by visiting the hair transplant surgeon.
