What is a hair transplant anyway?
Hair transplantation is the only way to permanently treat hair loss. A hair transplant is a surgical procedure where the surgeon moves hair follicles from the neck to the front and crown. It is possible to move hair follicles since most people still tend to have much hair on the neck and the back of the head. You’ve probably noticed men with a so-called “donut hairstyle” and it is from this area that the surgeon picks hair follicles.

There are various methods of hair transplants
If you are looking to undergo a hair transplant procedure, it is important to understand various methods and find out what clinics deliver best result.
Hair transplantation as a method has been around a long time and different hair transplant methods have developed a lot since the 80s. Nowadays it is possible to get a cutting-edge hair transplant at a reasonable price.
Many believe hair transplantation is the only treatment offering a permanent solution for hair loss. At this site you will get a complete picture of what you would expect and also the limitations of the methods involved.
What causes hair loss?
Maybe you are affected by your hair loss and are looking to do something about the situation. To suffer from hair loss is very tough from a mental perspective. Various studies shows that about half of all men in their 50s suffer from various degrees of balding. If you have experienced hair loss for a short period, you may visit a dermatologist or specialist to find out what causes your hair loss - there are many factors such as stress, food, radiation and disease that causes why you lose hair. Many women experience such hair loss related to pregnancy. Those who mainly get treated with hair transplant are those who suffer from hereditary hair loss which is the most common form of hair loss.
Why do many people choose hair transplant?
Those who seek out the HT-clinics are typically men aged 25-60 but it’s getting more and more common among women and they usually want to fix their balding or lower their hairline. Traditionally clinics do not treat people under 25. With FUE, which is a mild form of treatment, I think the age limit could be questionable – especially if it is a younger person who suffer mentally from his or her hair loss.
How about research in hair loss?
Scientists are studying hair loss research in stem cells, gene therapy, growth factors and cloning. Unfortunately there are few practical applications today, but hair science advance and we start to understand the complex factors influencing the little hair follicle.
Is it painful to get a hair transplant?
An operation will always hurt, and it depends on which method you use. With FUE it is enough with local anesthetic while flip methods and scalp reduction are far more complicated operations and the pain is worse. With those methods the surgeon removes large area of the skin and therefore, patients need anesthetics and longer recovering time.
