Hair transplant surgery can improve the appearance and self-confidence of patients who are balding. The procedure involves moving hair from an area of thick growth (the donor site) to an area without hair (the recipient site). During a single treatment session, hundreds or even thousands of hairs may be transplanted. More than one treatment will be required to achieve the desired results. While no new hair is created, most hair transplants offer permanent results and excellent hair growth within a few months.
The scalp is very tender during the recovery period, and strict post-surgery instructions must be followed to obtain an optimal outcome. Hair transplant patients should be healthy nonsmokers who have reasonable goals and the patience to obtain them.
