Advanced surgical techniques provide the most natural-looking, permanent solution for those who are bald or have thinning hair.  "Follicular-Unit Micrografting" is a procedure during which literally thousands of follicles are redistributed in the the thinning or balding areas.  Once harvested from the "donor" area (often sides and back of scalp), hair follicles are microscopically dissected into "grafts".  Each micrograft contains a single "follicular unit", consisting of one to three hair follicles.  Follicular-unit grafts are then carefully implanted into the bald or thinning "recipient" areas.  Meticulous artistic and technical skill is required to design an appropriate hairline, as well as ensure the appropriate angle, orientation and position of each transplanted hair.  Follicular-unit micrografting creates a result that defies detection and is never, ever "pluggy."

What is transplant surgery like?

Most hair transplant procedures are performed on an out-patient basis, using local or twilight anesthesia.  Patients comfortably relax, watch DVDs, listen to music or nap during their procedure, which takes several hours to complete.

What about after the procedure?

Most people do not have any significant discomfort after the surgery.  Some itching and swelling can occur but is generally mild.  Normal physical activities can be resumed immediately.  Crusting and scabbing of the transplanted areas last about a week.

The transplanted hair falls out in about 2 weeks and generally begins to grow again in about 3 months.  Once it has grown in, the next session can be performed.  The number of sessions required to fill in a given area depends on the extend of the hair loss and the density which is desired.  For most people, this means between 1 and 3 sessions.

Transplanted hair lives and grows indefinitely.  Once the transplant procedures are complete, no further treatments are necessary.  The hair can be styled any way the person desires.  Although hair transplantation is a substantial investment, the results are considered permanent and may be less expensive than other hair loss treatments when factored over a lifetime.  The improvement in self-image and confidence is well worth the cost for most people.
