Hair Transplant For Men
Restored Hairline with no linear scar
Each hair sits in a cavity in the skin called a follicle. Baldness in men occurs when the follicle shrinks over time, resulting in shorter and finer hair. The end result is a very small follicle with no hair inside. Ordinarily, hair should grow back. However, in men who are balding, the follicle fails to grow a new hair. Why this occurs is not well understood, but it is related to your genes and male sex hormones. Even though the follicles are small, they remain alive, suggesting the possibility of new growth.
Restored Hairline with no linear scar allows hair to grow every couple of months. Each hair grow for approximately 2 to 6 years. Hair remains at that length for a short period, then falls out. Soon enough, new hair grows replacing fallen hair and growing in its place. This is done gradually, naturally. At a given time, close to 85% of new hair on your head is in the growing stages whiles 15% is not.
In recent years, we have seen an increase in facial hair transplantation. This is a procedure that addresses the lack of, or thinning hair in facial areas such as beards, mustache and goatee. This treatment is now a commonly performed procedure where the surgeon transplants hair to facial regions lacking density.
