Hair transplantation first involves removing small strips of hair bearing scalp from the back of the head. This "donor region" contains hair which will grow throughout a lifetime and is resistant to normal male pattern hairloss. The areas from which the strips are taken are carefully repaired, usually resulting in a very narrow scar easily hidden amongst the hair. The harvested strips of hair bearing scalp are then divided into grafts for placement in the balding areas.

These grafts may be processed into a variety of different sizes depending on each patient’s specific needs and condition. In recent years, the use of very small grafts, particularly at the hair line, has become very popular. These grafted hairs grow out much like normal hair and are virtually undetectable. Larger grafts containing more hairs may be used in some situations to obtain more density behind the hair line.

Grafts containing one to two hairs are known as micro-grafts.Grafts containing three to five hairs are known as mini-grafts. The grafts are inserted into small holes or slits which are made in the area of hairloss. These holes or slits are sometimes made with a laser. The grafts can literally be inserted between existing hairs to increase the density and thicken the area. The number of grafts required and the length of a treatment session depend on each person’s particular problem and degree of baldness.

A full counselling service and finance package service is available. The big advantage of hair transplanting is that there is no mainteneance needed or ongoing costs.
