Medical Hair Restoration Facts

Medical hair restoration/replacement takes hairs from a healthy portion of the scalp and re-plants them in balding or thinning areas. In some cases, small skin grafts from the healthy area are grafted to the thinning area. There is a very thin scar that will result but isn't visible. There is a procedure where a balloon is placed under the skin of the scalp. A portion of the balding area is removed and the new skin growth flapped over the removed spot. This is very complicated and can be very painful. These are permanent procedures. The hair grows as the rest of the hair will grow.

Medical Hair Restoration Myths

Some say that once the hair is replaced onto the scalp, it just lies there and doesn't grow. Hair grows as has been mentioned as naturally as it would have were the area it was taken from was healthy. Many well done grafts can create a beautiful head of hair.
