What is a Hair Transplant Procedure?

A hair transplant procedure (hair restoration) is a type of surgery performed for restoring hair in various scalp areas that have thinning hair or are bald. There are numerous types of hair replacement procedures. Often these involve hair transplantation, however, scalp tissue expansion, flap surgery and scalp reduction surgery are other techniques used to replace hair. Each may be used by itself or in combination, providing you with the best possible hair replacement outcome.

One of the best and most highly effective hair transplant systems is NeoGraft. NeoGraft is a newer automated hair transplant system which involves follicle harvesting in a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant. It drastically improves the speed and accuracy over prior used manual extraction tools.

 

What is Hair Restoration?

Hair restoration is a surgical method of removing hair follicles from one area of your body, known as the "donor site" to a balding or bald area of your scalp — the "recipient site." The technique is mainly used for treating male pattern baldness.

Surgeons have been performing these transplants since the 1950s in the U.S.; however, methods in the recent years have changed a lot. You typically get the surgery done in the doctor's office.
