How To Do A Hair Transplant?
In practice, hair follicles taken from the neck are transplanted to the targeted balding area. These hair follicles are called grafts. Rarely, in some cases, there is not enough healthy hair on the neck or temple area of the person. In such cases, hair follicles can also be taken from other parts of the person that contain hair, such as the arms or chest wall. The application takes a few hours depending on the amount of hair loss. If the hairless area is too large, several sessions may be required to complete the treatment.
