Friends and family members must be making fun of you because of your forehead increasing in size and moon shining bright at the center of the scalp. If you still don’t understand what is being talked about then it is complete hair loss under discussion what most of us know as baldness. Now, if your story happens to be very much the same then you must be gathering information about hair transplant procedure. It is also quite possible that you must have listened to a lot many fairy tales about the surgery and now you want another one with your name punctuated in it.
If you have pulled up your socks to undergo the surgical hair restoration then before you are on the surgical bed it is important to know a few things. Starting from hair loss, it is caused by many indifferent factors such as changes in hormones, family history of baldness and/or aging. This can only be cured by the hair transplant procedure as it is the most reliable treatment. Sometimes, hair loss can also result from environmental changes, mental stress, lack of sleep, improper diet, wrong type of hair products in use and reaction to treatment against a disease such as cancer. However, this is just temporary.
Another important aspect that you should know about hair loss is that it is also a natural phenomenon. Hair that falls actually grows back after some time. A person complains about losing hair when the number of falling hair outnumbers those which are expected to grow back. In such a scenario, the only solution to the problem is hair transplant procedure. There is no rocket science involved in it because the surgeon will remove hair from the donor area which will be then grafted in the bald areas of the scalp. There are two methods involved in it: strip harvesting and Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE method.
As a candidate to be undergoing surgical hair restoration, it is important that you have healthy hair growth on the sides and back of the head as they will be serving as the donor areas. There is not much difference in the two procedures because the method of hair grafting is same in both. As far as the cost hair transplant procedure is concerned that depends on the method you choose, number of grafts required, hair density in donor area and your affordability range. People these days prefer FUE method as it is minimally invasive and leaves no scar. The results can be seen in about 6 to 8 months after the surgery.
