What is Hair Transplant?
It is a method of transplanting hair to the areas of hair loss in people who have lost their hair, by using their own healthy hairs. The hair follicles to be transplanted are selected from the ones that are genetically resistant to hair loss, particularly from those in the nape, and these follicles are relocated in the channels opened in bald or thinning areas of the scalp.
