Treatment of Hair Loss

The only permanent solution to baldness is hair transplantation surgery. Candidates opting for a transplant must have lost hair only from the frontal or crown region and should possess certain portions that have dense hair because they are going to act as the donor tissues. The doctors take a strip of skin having dense hair and then implants the hair follicle by hand with small forceps into the bald region.

After the surgery, the head is covered with a light covering which can be removed the next morning.
