The effects of hair transplantation are permanent. During the procedure, live hair follicles are redistributed from the back and sides of the head, known as the “donor area,” to bald spots on the head, as well as on the eyebrows and eyelids. Local anesthesia is administered on the donor site from which strips of hair are removed and dissected into hair grafts. The recipient area is then prepared and anesthetized to allow placement of the grafts. Hair starts to grow after six to eight weeks at approximately 1 cm a month—for the rest of your life.
What it targets:
Balding areas of the head (due to male pattern baldness or alopecia), as well as sparse eyebrows and eyelashes
The procedure lasts three to five hours depending on the size of areas to be treated. You may shampoo or wash the affected areas after eight hours. You will be advised not to lift heavy weights for at least one week, while swimming and public steam or sauna baths should be avoided for about two weeks to avoid infection. Two-weeks post-treatment, you will be required to return for suture removal.
