Hair Transplant (Definition)

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.

What age do you have to be to get a hair transplant?

What age do you have to be to get a hair transplant?

Maturity > Age.: There is no strict age cut off for hair transplant surgery. E.g., I've treated many children who have suffered scalp or brow scars or other injuries that needed repair via hair transplant surgery. However, hereditary hair loss patients must demonstrate enough maturity to understand the need for ongoing medical therapy to prevent the further progression of the condition in the nontransplanted hair.

What does itching signify after hair transplant?

What does itching signify after hair transplant?

Hair surgery itching: Itching after hair transplant surgery could mean healing or hair growth. In the first few days, you should use the Healing Mist supplied in your postop kit on the FUE donor and recipient areas, then proceed to the moisturizing ointment in the small glass jar as the scabs flake off at one week. At around 6 weeks post FUE NeoGraft, many of the hairs are growing, which could cause itching too.
