Can A Hair Transplant Completely Replace My Lost Hair?May 15th, 2014
Q: I have a significant amount of hair loss. Can a hair transplant make me look exactly the way I did before I lost my hair?
A: In most cases, the answer is no. All surgical hair restoration procedures move hair – they cannot create new hair. Specifically, surgical hair transplantation takes existing hair from the donor area (located in the back and on the sides of the scalp) and moves (transplants) them to the part of the scalp that has lost hair. It is usually the case that there is not enough hair in one’s donor area to replace all lost hair. That said, in persons with extensive hair loss, the restoration can often produce a dramatic improvement in one’s appearance.Related Posts:
