How Does Hair Transplant Work ?
Hair transplant is really about relocating (transplanting) the bald resistant hair follicles from the back of the head to the balding areas on top of the head.This process works for a lifetime because the hair follicles taken from the back of head are genetically resistant to baldness, regardless of where they are relocated.

Hair transplantation, when done right, can be so natural that even your hair stylist will not know that you have had it done.

Will People Know That I Have Had Hair Transplant ?
Immediately following surgery a patient recipient area is typically pink with scabs forming around microincisions. These hundreds of tiny incisions will heal rapidly within a week to ten days.
During the first few days after hair transplant surgery a person’s hair transplants will be noticeable if there is no previous hair to mask these temporary scabs however most patients feel comfortable being in public without wearing a hat within 5 to 7 days following hair transplant surgery.Once the transplanted hairs begin to grow the results should look entirely natural, even under close examination.
When Will The Newly Transplanted Hair Start To Grow ?
It takes between 3 to 5 months following surgery before the transplanted hair follicles begin to grow new hair. The transplanted hair grows very thin initially and gradually grows thicker and fuller over time. After 1 year a patient’s transplanted hair will be fully mature and will continue to grow for a lifetime.
