These long-lasting hair follicles are transplanted into barren or balding scalp areas. With today's microsurgical technologies, this leads in hair restoration that looks very natural in bald scalp areas. Only a small number of hair follicles are removed from the back and sides of the scalp, leaving enough hair in the donor areas.
Almost all transplanted hair lasts a lifetime for the great majority of patients. When a patient reaches old age, a tiny percentage of the transplanted hair may fall off.
The vast majority of our hair transplant patients are at ease both during and after their treatment. Local anaesthetics are used during the procedure, as you might imagine. Because this is a surgical operation, you will be given antibiotics and pain relievers to use for the next 5 to 10 days.
Your freshly repaired hair will continue to grow and require the same care as your natural hair. It's your hair, so you can colour it, permanently wave it, and style it in a variety of ways to fit your needs. You can even shave them off and they will regrow.
The scalp is flexible. The scalp on both sides is brought together and sutured after the donor strip of hair is removed. A suture line hidden beneath the hair that grows vertically on the back of the head is the sole sign of surgery.
