There are many reasons for hair loss, but 95% of all cases in men are due to a condition called “androgenetic alopecia.” This is commonly referred to as “male pattern baldness.” Follicular Unit Grafting is a state of the art procedure yielding the natural results. It is considered to be the gold standard in Hair Restoration.
A hair transplant involves transferring hair from the back and side of the head (the “donor area”) to those areas undergoing hair loss or thinning. The hair from the donor area are genetically programmed to be permanent. A follicular unit is the naturally occurring group of 1 – 3, occasionally 4 hairs. As many as 2500-3000 grafts = 5000-6000 hair can be transplanted in a single procedure lasting 6 – 10 hours.
Once transplanted, these hair will continue to grow for a lifetime, they can be groomed, shampooed and require haircuts like normal hair.
