Hair Transplant (Overview)

Hair transplantation is more like transplanting plants than any other surgical transplant! the best results are seen with individual hair transplantation. The hair and its root are harvested and replanted in the area desired. Single hair transplantation takes longer, this is usually performed along the hairline. Farther back small groups of two or three hairs can offer more coverage.
