hair transplant

Procedure

Conditions (1)
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.

How does a hair transplant work?

Hair replacement

Hair_thin
Hair transplant is a type of hair replacement which involves transplantation of hair from the back of the head to the area of hair loss. The hair from the back regions of the head are genetically designed to remain in place despite hormonal changes. Transplantation can be completed by strip or by [FUE] follicular unit extraction. Transplantation is completed most naturally as single hairs.

Does hair transplant leave scars?

Hair Transplant

Hair_transplant
The result of the scar is totally dependent on the surgeon's skill. If the donor hair site is closed properly with minimal tension, usually the scar is minimal. Unfortunately, the rare unsatisfactory result gets all the press and the patients with excellent scars tend not to discuss it.

Does hair transplant surgery work?

Absolutely

Transplant
Yes, it does work. Results are not always consistent and more than one procedure may be required for optimal results but it does work.

What is hair transplantation exactly?

Hair transfer

Hair_transplant
A hair transplant involves removing the hair follicles from strands of hair that exist on your head, to balding areas without hair. It is often done one or two strands at a time. This is actually an autotransplant, meaning the hair tissue is from the same donor and host. There is no rejection, and no immunosuppressive drugs are needed.

How to know if I have a hair transplant?

Hair Transplantation

0023my
I'm going to assume you meant "need" a hair transplant... You will 'need' a hair transplant in order to restore severely depleted or balding areas of the scalp. Once hair follicles are "dead & gone" they're beyond repair from medical treatments like topicals, oral prescriptions, laser therapy or PRP. Microscopic evaluation by a ABHRS certified MD can help determine candidacy for NeoGraft FUE.

How effective is omnigraft hair transplant?

FUE

Hair_transplant
Omnigraft referes to a machine that is used to take the hair from the donor site using the FUE or follicular unit extraction technique. In the hands of an experienced doctor, it should be just as effective as any other FUE hair transplant with other instruments.

Cost and procedure for hair transplantation?

Can vary.

Cosmetic_surgery
It is hard to be specific since it depends on the techniques used. Single follicle transplants appear to give the best cosmetic results, and are often the most expensive. Many insurance carriers do not cover the procedure, regarding it as non essential cosmetic surgery. You'll need to choose a local practitioner and get his/her price structure. Plan on several thousand dollars.

Is there some type of facial hair transplant?

Maybe

Dkphoto
Repair of sideburns after bad facelift is done, grafts to missing parts of eyebrows is done, tattoo to give the impression of hair follicles in scars or a beard area are common. If you're trying to grow a beard and don't have the hair for it, sorry.
