Hair implantation is a permanent solution to balding in patients who are experiencing hair loss. It involves microsurgical implantation of the patient’s own healthy hair follicles in balding areas.
The follicles are usually harvested from the patient’s neck and transferred to areas where hair is being lost. Hair implantation allows the patient to have stronger and healthier, and natural-looking hair in as early as 6 months.
The FUE technique, which represents the state-of-the-art in hair implantation, is recommended; it involves no incision and therefore surgical scars are precluded.
It permanently eliminates hair loss by implanting the patient’s own follicles in the area of hair loss. The FUE technology is used for harvesting and implanting hair follicles. Although it is technically classified as a surgical intervention, it does not involve incision or suturing.
Not every patient with male-pattern hair loss, however, will always benefit from this treatment. A key factor is being able to access life follicles in the patient’s body. The follicles are then re-implanted in the areas with complete or partial hair loss, providing a natural look.
