What is a hair transplant?


A hair transplant is a procedure in which a plastic or dermatological surgeon moves hair to a bald area of the head. The surgeon usually moves hair from the back or side of the head to the front or top of the head.

Hair transplants typically occur in a medical office under local anesthesia.

Pattern baldness is responsible for the majority of hair loss. This comes down to genetics. The remaining cases are due to various factors, including:

  • Diet
  • Stress
  • Illness
  • Hormonal Imbalance
  • Medications

Are there different types of hair transplants?

There are two types of transplant procedures: slit grafts and micrografts.

Slit grafts contain 4 to 10 hairs per graft. Micrografts contain 1 to 2 hairs per graft, depending on the coverage needed.

Who might benefit from a hair transplant?

Receiving a hair transplant can improve your appearance and self-confidence. Good candidates for a hair transplant include:

  • men with male pattern baldness
  • women with thinning hair
  • anyone who has lost some hair from a burn or scalp injury

Is it worth getting a hair transplant?

A hair transplant is a good option for people who can afford the high cost of the procedure and haven’t found success from treatments like minoxidil or Rogaine. Hair transplant surgery is relatively low risk compared with other surgeries, but it isn’t without risks. There is also always the possibility that your hair regrowth may be minimal.

But if this is a procedure you are interested in and the potential rewards outweigh the costs and risks, consider talking with your doctor to see if this is a good option.

Is a hair transplant painful?

The good news is, no — a hair transplant is not painful. At the time of the procedure, the area of your scalp that the surgeon will be focusing on will be numbed with a local anesthetic, so while you may feel a little pressure or movement sensations during the procedure, it can be little bit painful.

But like with most postsurgery recovery, you may experience discomfort or pain at the incision points as your body starts to heal and recover. Your medical team will likely discuss the best ways to manage pain and other ways to minimize the risk
