Who should consider undergoing the procedure?
For some men, being bald is an undesirable state. So, that loss of hair results in some feelings of depression and inadequacy.
This minor surgical procedure is performed for cosmetic reasons, the main target being that of replacing hair lost through baldness.
For many men, being bald is an undesirable state. So, any loss of that hair is viewed in a negative light, resulting in feelings of depression and inadequacy.
The best form of scalp surgery is a hair transplant. This involves the surgeon removing one section of hair from a healthy area and transplanting it to the bald section.

How is the procedure performed?
A hair transplant session is carried out under a local anesthetic. The surgeon will remove a cluster of hair follicles from a hairy area, and then will transfer it to the required area.
Depending on the size of the area for transplantation, this process is repeated several times until the required area is completed. The hair is placed in the direction to grow in order to ensure a natural look. Once this process is finished, the surgeon will then sew up the area from which the hair was taken from and cover it with a bandage.
Multiple sessions may be required in some individuals.

What is the outcome of the surgery?
Most hair transplants are successful, with newly transplanted hairs growing 16 weeks after the procedure though it can take up to 9 months for the complete growth. It is crucial to point out that the best hair transplants are in those patients started with thicker and substantial hair. . Transplanted hair is subject to the aging process in the same pattern as the existing hair that there will be some slight reduction in density over time.

How long will the procedure take?
A single session can last from 2 up to 8 hours depending on the amount of hair to be transplanted.

What are the precautions is the recovery time?
This is a safe procedure. The patient may experience some mild soreness or a feeling of �tightness� in the newly transplanted area.
The patient may use a damp compress to reduce any swelling and sleep in a semi-upright position for 2 to 3 days. Small scabs will form over the newly grafted area of hair though these can be hidden by any existing hair which can be brushed over these. There may some numbness in the area from which the hair was grafted from but normally this symptom will fade away from 2 to 8 months.
This is a minor procedure which can be performed as day surgery or at an outpatient�s clinic.

What are the common complications?
In general, this type of procedure is safe and very successful. Any complications which may arise are likely to be infection, scarring, itching, poor hair growth, cysts and follicle swelling. Some patients may experience slight forehead swelling immediately after the surgery though this will subside in few days.
