Hair Transplant - Is a Hair Transplant Right For You?

Aug 17, 2007
A hair transplant is a surgical procedure where hair on one part of your head that is not prone to balding (like the sides and back) is taken and transplanted into a balding area.

Generally, most of this transplanted hair will continue to grow for the lifetime of the patient. Hair transplants are thus a popular way to address the problem of premature balding and thinning.

Patients like the fact that they don't have to mess with questionable treatments or products for the rest of their lives.

Hair Transplants are becoming much more popular in the image-obsessed culture we live in today. People are realizing that image makes a difference in everything from personal confidence and happiness to the type of salary you earn and even to what kind of mate you can attract.

What Does It Look Like?

New advances in are made every year. Transplants today don't need to have the 'pluggy' look they did 10 or 20 years ago. Today they can look so completely natural, no one will be able to tell you had one.

Depending on which doctor you choose you can address the thinning areas on your crown or front hairline.

Your doctor may also be able to steer you towards proven hair loss products that can cut down on hair loss after your surgery.

Options For Hair Transplant Surgery:

In general there are 2 types of surgery: The FUSS and the FUE method.

1) FUSS - Follicular Unit Strip Surgery

A narrow strip of hair is taken from the back of your scalp (where you aren't prone to thinning). The grafts are then implanted into the balding area and most will continue to grow throughout the patient's lifetime.

2) FUE - Follicular Unit Extraction

This is a new technique that few surgeons offer. It mainly consists of harvesting each follicule separately from the back and sides of the head (that aren't prone to thinning). Then each hair follicule is transplanted into the balding area.

Is It Right For You?

Everyone is unique and a hair transplant may not be for everyone as each person's situation is unique. If you're considering having one, you must choose your surgeon or clinic carefully as there are a wide variety of options.

If you are considering a hair transplant, talk to your doctor. You'll also want to educate yourself on surgical methods, costs and options before making a final decision.
