Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure which the hair follicle or grafts (nature’s building blocks for hair) are harvested from the back and sides of the scalp also including the other area such as bead, chest, and extremities in hirsute individuals (donor area). These donor grafts are then transferred to the thinning or hairless areas on the top, front or crown of the scalp (recipient area).
If the patient is a good candidate for hair transplantation, this procedure will provide the permanent and practical method for hair restoration. Hair transplantation can be performed to treat the patient with genetic or pattern hair loss for all genders.
You should receive the evaluation by a plastic surgeon specializing in hair restoration. The doctor will find out the cause of your hair loss, severity of your hair loss, your donor supply status, your associated medical conditions, your treatments for hair loss problem and your expectation after hair transplantation which is the most important thing to discuss with our doctor. If you achieve these essential requirements following the physician’s instructions, you will expect the good result as much as possible?
Most of our patients informed us that the pain symptom was minimal and tolerable. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia with state of the art administration using the smallest ganged needle injection. Cold compression before slow injection is done to make patients feel less pain. If the patients worry about needle injection, use will offer the intravenous anesthetic sedation with monitored anesthesia case for the patient’s safety and comfort.
Chemotherapy can cause hair cells to stop dividing, resulting in hair loss.
In some cases patients lose as much as 90% of their scalp hair, others lose none. Sometimes this hair grows back when the cancer treatment ends,
sometimes it doesn't. Common chemotherapy drugs that can hair loss include methotrexate, cyclophosohamide, bleomycin, doxorubicin, mitomycin, cytarabine, vinblastine and vincristine.
In many cases, hair begins to grow back two to three months after chemotherapy is over. New hair may be different than it used to be in terms of texture, thickness and color.
It’s common for hair to grow back finer, curlier and grayer than it was before.

This benefits you in two ways. First, you'll know you're getting expert care from one of the industry's leading physicians.
Second, the physicians keep up to date on all the latest technologies relating to hair transplantation advances because they

Modern hair transplant procedures produce a very natural look.
Our highly-skilled physicians use special techniques to ensure that scarring is minimal
and virtually undetectable. The fine cosmetic scar in the hair donor area is covered by your existing hair.
We recommended that you get a good night's rest, limit smoking and alcohol,
and eat a healthy breakfast. You will be asked not to take aspirin for several days prior to your procedure.
More detailed instructions will be provided by the physician or medical staff based on our personal medical history.
After the procedure, you will be instructed to go home or to your hotel room to relax.
The physician or medical staff will provide you with a complete post-operative care plan along with any necessary medications.
You may come back to the office the next day, and the transplanted follicular units and the donor site will be examined by the physician or medical staff.
You will receive some additional instructions for care at that time. Your new hair will begin growing within about 3 months.
The cost depends on the size of the baldness that needs transplantation.
We use a scaling discount that means the more grafts transplanted the less you pay.
For a rough estimation please send us your pictures in different profiles and we will get back to you
as soon as we receive your photos.
There is no 100% guarantee in medical practice, approximately 90%
of the transplanted grafts will grow after 3-6 months in good hands. However if there is no growth
which has never happened in our practice you may return for surgery free of charge.
The average time to see the significant difference is 8-10 months.
The transplanted hairs are in resting phase for 4 months, thereafter, the hairs will start to grow again
albeit need time to catch up the expected length.
Whenever human skin is cut, it always heals by the process called "fibrosis.
" This fibrosis (commonly known as scarring) is the skin's way of healing. Thanks to the skill
of our experienced hair transplant physicians, the healing sites in the transplanted areas are usually
so small that the fibrosis is virtually undetectable. The scar in the donor area is covered by your existing hair.
The Bosley hair transplantation procedure is designed to produce a very natural look. In the great majority of cases,
the micro-technologies currently used at Bosley make the restored hairline virtually undetectable.
Immediately following surgery a patient’s recipient area is typically pink with scabs
forming around the micro incisions. These hundreds of tiny incisions will heal rapidly within a week to ten days.
During the first few days after the surgery a person’s hair transplants will be noticeable if there is no previous hair to mask these temporary scabs.
However, most patients feel comfortable being in public without wearing a hat within 5 to 7 days following surgery.
Once the transplanted hair grows out the results should look entirely natural, even under close examination.
Hair restoration goals and expectations vary from person to person.
About 85 percent of our clients only have one procedure, the remaining 15% have two or more.
The extent of your hair loss and your desired density will determine the number of hair transplant procedures necessary to achieve
the results you want.
