Hair Transplantion is a permanent method for the cure of baldness. Normally, the hairs in the back of your head are not under the influence of male hormone and are considered permanent. When these hairs are transplanted on to the bald area they retain their permanency. A strip of hair is taken from the back of your head and the follicular units are dissected and transplanted. Donor area is closed. Modern hair transplant techniques have done away with large hair grafts in favor of micro-grafts. By using micro-grafts and a technique called follicular unit transplantation, hair transplant surgeons can make hair virtually indistinguishable even from a hair salon. This is where hair transplant surgery becomes less of a science and more of an art form. Follicular units are not just single hairs, but grow in groups of 2 to 4 hairs, and by maintaining the composition of this unit a modern hair transplant can mimic natural hair growth. When hair transplant surgery is successful the results are just as good as natural hair growth, this is living hair that you can style the same way you would before hair loss occurred.
