Hair transplants can be life altering and bring patients immeasurable joy, but there are a few things you should know about hair transplants before scheduling your own. There are many different types of transplants that depend on hair type, along with different techniques and technology and you should research your options and talk with a surgeon before any surgical procedure.

First and foremost, you want to find a reputable surgeon with proven results and real before and after photos and reviews. Choosing your surgeon will also depend on the type of hair loss you have and the procedure you want to have done. Make sure to find someone who specializes in the procedure you need, whether that’s FUE, FUT or ARTAS.

To find the best hair transplant surgeon, it is essential that you determine the cause and extent of hair loss, which makes it the most important factor in deciding on the type of hair restoration to pursue.

Hair transplants today can look very natural when done by an experienced surgeon using both the Strip method and the FUE method. Outside of the preferred hair transplant methods, there are other lesser-known options, such as the use of biopsies and bioplastics.

Hair transplantation involves a hair growth cycle during the recovery phase, and the transplanted hair can bounce back after several months if the hair grows during this cycle. In hair transplantation, active hair follicles are removed from the donor area of the scalp and implanted at the site where the scalp has thinned or become bald. A consultation will need to take place to check whether you are eligible for FUE hair transplantation or if a different option would work better for your hair type.
