Even with hereditary hair loss men do not usually become completely bald, keeping at least a band of hair around the sides and back of the head.

The reason for this is the hair follicles around the back and sides are more resistant to the male sex hormone compared to those over the top of the scalp.

The genetically resistant hair follicles with correct transplant management can be moved from the back and sides, the donor area, and still retain the genetic information needed to grow for life even when placed in an area of hair loss, the recipient area.

The Redistribution of Resistant Hair Follicles

A hair transplant is a fantastic opportunity to restore areas of lost hair again but no new hair is produced. It is simply the redistribution of hormone-resistant, healthy hair follicles from the back and sides of the head to the thinning regions.

Hair transplantation is based on the fact that the transplanted hair follicle behaves in the same way as if still in their original position. If the follicular units are transplanted correctly in their original natural groups a hair transplant can produce results  undetectable from natural hair growth.

The individual hair characteristics

A refined hair transplant result depends not only on the density and properties of the hair of the patient, such as the thickness, colour and texture of his donor hair. Since each person has different hair characteristics and expectations we will access every aspect of  the patient’s needs. Only when the entire treatment is individually tailored to the patient will the result be completely natural and aesthetically pleasing.

Relationship between technical finesse and artistic ability

Today, highly skilled and compassionate doctors are able to perform hair transplants and to enable a natural growing appearance of hair, a natural result is of the highest priority.
