Hair transplant is a procedure that not many people understand. Unlike a nose job which is known as Rhinoplasty or a facelift, also known as Rhytidectomy, Follicle renewal is less commonly understood by people. Virginia Hair Transplant can help people to understand the procedure better.
Follicle renewal or “hair transplant” is a procedure where hair is surgically removed from one area of a person’s body, and relocated to another. This is done strand-by-strand and was discovered over a half century ago. The hair from the sides and back of a person’s head are strong and more resistant to balding, so they are more useful in other, more visible areas of the head which previously had lost hair.
Once the hair is successfully transplanted, it will keep the characteristics from where it came from, making it resilient to most of the forces that cause hair loss in the new areas. The hair transplant procedure is performed by a physician and their assistants over the span of one day. This is a surgical procedure that uses anesthesia.
A typical hair transplant will move thousands of hair follicles with the goal of recreating the front hairline and moving follicles in any other balding areas. The hair will begin to fill in naturally after the healing period, at approximately four to six months.
Both men and women who have lost hair in the front and top of their scalps may have hair transplant surgery. People with only thinning hair or damaged scalps may also benefit from follicle renewal surgery. The scalp is not the only area of the body that can be transplanted. Other areas include:
- Areas of the face
- Anywhere on the body where hair has been lost
For millions of people, hair loss is a huge problem that also causes self-esteem issues, insecurity, and often times depression. Many patients not only experience cosmetic benefits from hair transplants, but also have increased confidence in themselves. Hair restoration can help to cease depression from hair loss and even make someone look years younger.
Virginia Hair Transplant can help you to feel more confident and look years younger. After a hair transplant surgery and once healed, you can brush, shampoo, and even style your new and improved head of hair just as you once normally did.
Hair loss loss is primarily caused by a variety of different things:
- A change in hormones
- A family history of baldness
