What to Understand About the Hair Transplant Process

Posted on

If you are missing some of the hair on your head, you can get it back by undergoing a multi-therapeutic hair transplant. Hair loss is extremely common in both men and women, especially as you get older. A hair transplant is one way you can deal with the loss of your hair. Here are a few things to understand about this process. 

Hair Transplants Use Your Own Hair

When it comes to dealing with hair loss, there are multiple treatments on the market. A hair transplant is different from hair restoration products and treatment. Hair restoration products and treatments focus on getting your head to grow hair where it is not growing hair right now. Hair transplants take hair from other parts of your head, where your hair is thicker and transports the hair to areas of your head where your hair is thinner.

Hair Transplants Work in Select Cases

Next, it is important to understand that hair transplants are not for everyone. Hair transplants work the best if you are balding or if your hair has naturally been thinning out. Hair transplants don't work that well if your thinness and baldness are extremely pronounced. This intervention works best when done early in the hair loss process. Additionally, if you have lost hair due to the use of medication, a hair transplant may not work.

Hair Transplants Cost Vary Significantly

When it comes to the cost of getting a hair transplant, the cost can vary. The experience of the surgeon and the availability of surgeons in your area to provide this service can impact the cost of getting hair transplants. Additionally, the extent of the transplant procedure will impact the cost. If you only need a small amount of hair transplanted, it will cost you less than if you need to have an extensive amount of hair replanted. It is important to note that this is not a procedure that is going to be covered by your insurance provider, so you need to make sure you have the cash on hand for the procedure.

A hair transplant is a formal procedure that takes hair from one part of your head and transplants that hair to an area where the hair is not as thick. If you are interested in getting a hair transplant, get a consultation from a surgeon to see if you are a good candidate for the multi-therapeutic hair transplant procedure.
