What is Hair Replacement?
Many people experience a loss of hair as they age. Particularly for men, the hairline often recedes noticeably. For some men, this starts as early as the 20s. Along with the changes in the hairline often come a decrease in self-esteem and confidence. Many men would like an opportunity to restore the hairline to its youthful contour, so that they can look as young and vibrant as they feel. Hair transplant surgery can allow men to have hair moved from hairy parts of the scalp to the balding parts, to improve their appearance and confidence. While hair transplant procedures have a lot in common, you do have some choices to make about how the procedure will be performed. We’ll show you your options, so you can make the most informed decision about having hair transplant surgery.
