Hair Transplant

Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that removes hair follicles from one part of the body, called the 'donor site', to a bald or balding part of the body known as the 'recipient site'.

Hair transplants typically occur in a medical office under local anesthesia.

Pattern baldness is responsible for the majority of hair loss. This comes down to genetics. The remaining cases are due to a variety of factors, including:

  • Diet
  • Stress
  • Illness
  • Hormonal Imbalance
  • Medications

Types of hair transplant

There are two types of transplant procedures: slit grafts and micrografts.

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

Who needs a hair transplant?

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

  • men with male pattern baldness
  • women with thinning hair
  • anyone who has lost some hair from a burn or scalp injury

Hair replacement isn't a good option for:

  • women with a widespread pattern of hair loss throughout the scalp
  • women with a widespread pattern of hair loss throughout the scalp
  • people who form keloid scars (thick, fibrous scars) after injury or surgery
  • people whose hair loss is due to medication such as chemotherapy
