In brief: Hair Restoration
Hair transplants can be highly effective, but there are 2 limitations.
#1 the amount of hair loss you currently have, and #2 the density of your hair in the donor site (in the back of the scalp). High density and thinning hair are the best combination, but it is worth getting an evaluation from a specialist to help set your expectations.

In brief: Vary
Transplants are dependent on the size of the area to be treated and the density and quality of the donor area.
The artistry of the physician re natural placement makes the difference between a pleasing appearance and a transplant which is obvious and detracts from your appearance.
