HAIR TRANSPLANTATION SURGERY
Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure in which hair from the back of the scalp is taken and transplanted in the bald area. The advantages of this procedure include.
This is a very successful surgery especially in cases where clear cut baldness patterns are already established. The hair transplant, though, can also exacerbate the condition if a careful evaluation is not done especially in women whom non-genetic aetiologies are very common. Hair Transplant is indicated in conditions like Male & Female Androgenetic Alopecia, traction alopecia, traumatic Hair Loss, even scarring alopecia where disease is stable and non-recurrent. Hair Transplant is widely used for facial hair transplant to reconstruct eyebrows, eyelashes, beard, moustache and even other body areas like pubis or chest.
