What is Hair Transplantation?
Hair transplantation is the process of transplanting the hair follicles taken from the nape of people with hair loss problems and baldness to the relevant area. The roots to be transplanted in hair transplantation are selected among healthy and strong roots that are not likely to be shed. It is a safe method that can be applied by people who experience hair loss and thinning of their hair. In other words, the person who will have a hair transplant does not need to be completely bald. Hair transplantation is the most effective method used in hair loss and baldness problems. There will be no shedding of the follicles transplanted with hair transplantation. With hair transplantation, people get their old hair and even stronger and healthier hair in a short period of 6 months.
Hair transplantation is a medical operation performed by specialist physicians and teams in the operating room environment. It should be done with high precision and meticulousness. Mistakes in the operation may cause undesirable appearances in patients. It is almost impossible to correct this appearance. However, if the restoration is done after hair transplantation, corrections can be made. This type of correction is generally not guaranteed. Therefore, it would be best to be meticulous in choosing a doctor and a hair transplant center.
