Hair Transplant FUE. Hair transplants redistribute living and growing hair follicles into the balding zone permanently. Not everyone is a candidate so seek out and travel to an experienced, credentialed, artistic FUE hair transplant surgeon for advice. Seek ABHRS, FISHRS, IAHRS, AHLA credentialing. FUE with ARTAS robot or NeoGraft leave no linear scar but seek out a full-time specialist for best results.

What will be the hair transplant cost? Does it work for parmanent time?

Hair transplant. The cost is what the market will bear.

Ask to meet 10+patients who have had it done by who ever you are talking to. Do not rely on pictures they show you. Read more...

The hair follicle. Certain hair follicles on the scalp are genetically programmed to not fall out. Even in severe baldness, the hair around the back of the head (occiput) does not fall out. This is the hair which can be removed and transplanted. You can lose 20, 000 + hairs on top of your head, but only harvest around 8, 000 for grafts. Artistic placement of the grafts maximizes results. Read more...
Donor site dominance. Good question. Actually, it's the opposite of what you may think. It's where the hair comes from, not where you put it, that determines it's fate.
