Hair restoration, also known as a hair transplant or hair replacement, is an option chosen by many people who have lost hair. Hair restoration is best for people who have lost hair due to genetics, burns or medical conditions.
During hair restoration healthy hair, follicles and tissue are taken from donor sites and transplanted or grafted into small slits in balding areas of the scalp. Hair restoration works best on those with thick, curly hair but can be performed on almost anyone. You must also have enough healthy hair to donate to the balding areas.
If you are having hair restoration, hair will first be transplanted to the front and sides of the head and areas around the face because these areas are the most visible. The back of the head will receive transplants last. You may need one or more procedures in order to achieve full coverage.
In past years, hair restoration did not result in a natural look. Large groups of hairs were transplanted at once which resulted in a “corn row” or “doll's hair” effect. Now, individual hairs or much smaller groups of hairs can be transplanted. This results in a much more natural look.
