Hair Transplant

Service Description

Hair loss, or alopecia, is a common problem that affects both men and 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 men and women suffering from baldness or thinning hair.

How is a hair transplantation procedure performed?

The various methods involved in hair replacement or transplantation depend 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.

Maintaining the integrity of the scalp and minimizing trauma is integral to this procedure and is quite tedious. The entire process takes anywhere from two to eight hours depending on how much hair is being transplanted or being transferred as a flap.
