When a person is suffering from thinning hair, they may feel embarrassed about their appearance. For these individuals, it may be possible to address their thinning scalp by using hair transplant procedures.
Hair Transplants Will Involve Moving Hair From One Area Of The Scalp To Another
The hair transplant procedure will involve moving hair from one area of the scalp to the thinning areas. This will allow a person to fill in the areas of their scalp that have started o lose hair over the years. Unfortunately, individuals that are fully balanced may not be able to utilize this procedure as they may not have enough hair to achieve the desired results. For this reason, this is a procedure that can be an ideal solution for those that have only suffered mild thinning of their scalps.
Multiple Treatment Sessions May Be Required For Patients With Extensive Thinning Of Their Hair
There is a common assumption among some individuals that they will only have to undergo a single hair transplant treatment session in order to achieve their desired results. In reality, there are many individuals that will require multiple treatment sessions to be able to achieve the look that they are wanting. During your initial consultation, you will get a better idea as to whether multiple treatment sessions will be required. In cases where you need more than one hair transplant procedure, these treatments will be scheduled several months apart as this will be needed to give the transplanted hair time to heal and regrow.
The Transplanted Hair May Temporarily Thin After It Is Transplanted
Over the course of the first few weeks following the hair transplant, it is common for some or all of the hair that was transplanted to fall out. This can be alarming to a person that has recently undergone this treatment, but this is a normal part of the healing and recovery process. Furthermore, it is normal for hair to fall out and to be replaced over the course of time. Generally, the patient's transplanted hair will regrow over the weeks following it being shed for the first time. Not surprisingly, many hair transplant procedures will want their patients to return after several months so that the health and effectiveness of the transplant procedure can be assessed. Making sure to follow the recovery instructions concerning your hair care and styling will help to ensure that the healing process goes smoothly so that as much of the transplanted hair as possible will heal and grow.
