Hair Transplant (Overview)

A hair transplant is the only permanent way to restore youthful hair growth to an area affected by hair loss due to thinning or balding. When performed carefully and artistically, a hair transplant is a comfortable outpatient procedure that can yield a 100% natural-looking restoration of living and growing hair--restoring a hairline or coverage at the top of the scalp. A hair transplant involves the harvesting and redistribution of permanent hair follicles from the sides and the back of the scalp into the areas of hair loss using as little as a single hair follicle at a time. FUE, or follicular unit extraction, is the minimally-invasive method of hair follicle harvesting which leaves no linear scar in the back of the scalp. Hair transplantation can be a life-changing procedure for men and women detrimentally affected by hair loss because a fuller head of hair makes people look and feel more attractive.
