Hair transplant (also called hair restoration or hair implantation) is the process of permanently restoring hair by transplanting new follicles into balding or thinning areas. Healthy follicles are taken from other areas of the body, most often the back or the sides of the head. This can be done by taking a single strip of hair or removing follicles individually. The number of grafts needed depends on the patient and the size of the area being treated. Anywhere from 1,000 to 3,000 grafts is average for a day of surgery. LEARN MORE ›

I don't know that I consider myself vain.. I just want to look as best as I can. I have had a very high forehead since I was a kid. When my hair started to recede unevenly in my 20s I felt a big lack of confidence because of it. In my 30s I emptied my savings account and did two hair... READ MORE
