Hair transplant options have come a long way since the days of the unnatural hair plugs surgeries. Today’s hair transplant options can give men and women suffering from hair loss a way to get beautifully naturally hair. If you’re suffering with hair loss, hair transplant options can help you gain more self confidence and feel more attractive in a short period of time. Of course, choosing the right physician and facility is important if you want natural and long lasting results.
Every human scalp has hair growing in tiny bundles which are called follicular units. A follicular unit consists of 1-4 terminal hair follicles and 1-2 fine hairs, a small muscle, oil glands, nerves, blood vessels and a small band of collagen. Modern hair transplant options allow patients to get follicular unit transplants which require surgical technicians to create grafts from donor tissue before the transplant.
The rate of hair regrowth varies from patient to patient. However, most patients see hair growth at 2 to 4 months after the hair transplant. Full growth typically occurs between 8 and 12 months. Sometimes new hair will grow in as fine, light hair but will gain normal appearance throughout the first year after the transplant.
Yes. Many patients can get full benefits with hair transplant options requiring only one session. However,
each patient varies so you should be examined and evaluated by a hair loss specialist before being certain.
If a second session is needed for more fullness, it would likely be scheduled for about 8 to 12 months after
the first session.
