Hair Restoration​

Hair restoration

Hair restoration is performed to reinstitute hair in bald or thinning areas of the scalp.
There are multiple types of hair transplant surgery that you can opt for. They can be used in combination to provide you with the best outcome for hair restoration.
Transplantation can imply a follicular unit transplant method where the strip of you your skin with hair follicles is removed from your scalp. The hair follicles are then removed from the strip and placed into the site where you want them.
There is also the follicular unit extraction method where individual follicles are removed from your scalp without removing your skin. Just like in the previous method, these follicles are then inserted into the site where they are needed.
There are also tissue expansion or reduction surgeries that make the hairless scalp areas less visible.
