affect you on many levels. It not only changes your appear but

realistic expectations hair replacement and hair transplant
surgery can be life changing.
What is hair transplantation?The
basic concept of hair transplantation is straightforward and
easily understood. The hair growing on the sides and lower part
of the back of the head is permanent in most people. It persists
even in advanced degrees of male pattern baldness because
follicles in these locations are not subject to the deleterious
affects of the hormone DHT, a byproduct of testosterone. The
characteristics of the individual follicles move with them when
they are transplanted. Therefore, permanent hair will remain
permanent regardless of where it is transplanted, a phenomena
termed "donor dominance." This is the basis of hair
Hair transplant surgery
Hair transplant surgery like other
types of cosmetic surgery can transform how we look and make us
more confident. Hair loss normally occurs at the front, top
and/or crown of the head. The hair at the back and sides of the
scalp usually grows for life (the permanent area). Hair
transplant surgery works by using remaining hair from the
permanent area and transplanting it to areas of hair loss. This
creates the appearance of a much fuller head of hair.
The surgeons who perform our hair transplants are
internationally recognized for their expertise in state of the
art hair transplant techniques. They use micro-grafting where
individual hairs are transplanted. This ensures that the
hairline looks natural.
Why have hair transplant?
The reason why men/women get hair transplants is to achieve a
more or less “permanent” correction of hair loss in order to
improve self-esteem and restore a more youthful self-image.
Who can get a transplant?
Any person with noticeable hair loss that includes thinning hair
and bald areas, and whose remaining hair is capable of growing
in a transplanted location (called a donor-dominant condition),
is a candidate for hair transplantation. A donor-dominant
condition is one in which transplanted hairs are able to survive
at a new location and will live and produce hairs as long as
they would have in their previous location.
When should a hair transplant be done?
A hair transplant can be done any time after there is enough
hair loss in a particular area, such as the front, middle, or
top of the scalp so that noticeable thinning is present on
casual examination of the affected area. Hair loss actually
begins long before it is noticeable and approximately 50 percent
of the hairs in a given area are lost before noticeable thinning
