In brief: Absolutely

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

Like any cosmetic procedure, in a skilled hair transplant surgeon's hands results can be 100% natural and undetectable. Unfortunately, many doctors performing other types of cosmetic procedures have recently added FUEhair transplants to their menu of offerings without adequate training or experience. To minimize the risk, start by seeking out an ABHRS certified surgeon also recommended by IAHRS.

In brief: Hair Surgery Works

The latest hair transplant techniques look very natural because they use small clusters of 1, 2, or 3 follicles rather then plugs of 10-15 hairs (old fashioned technique).
We use a microsurgical technique to ensure that each graft is cut appropriately and implanted in the best possible way to give the hair a natural appearance.

In brief: YES

Newer techniques use single or small number of hair follicular grafts which improves the results and avoid the "plug" look of old.
Additionally, many hair transplant surgeons are using injected concentrated platelets into the area of old hair follicles and claim that reactivation of dormant hair systems occurs.
