Hair Transplantation is a surgical procedure carried out under local anaesthetic, in which hair is transferred from the rear part of the scalp to the sparsely covered area. As a rule, the transplanted hair continues to grow in its new area naturally and as usual throughout the patient's life-time. Since the transplant procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic, any risks are virtually nil.
As time went by, noticeable improvements in the methods of hair transplantation began, to the point that today it is feasible to perform hair-transplants without any fear of their being detected as such.
The minimum age for hair-transplants is 25, as then it is possible to know clearly the manner of balding, its characteristics, its extent etc. Still, there are exceptions, where it is possible nevertheless to perform a hair-transplant before the age of 25, when the balding is localised and the patient has been getting preservative treatment – therefore, it is very important that the diagnosis be carried out by a dermatologist specialising in matters of hair and who can give the prognosis regarding the Alopecia and its possible continuation. In addition to this, it is important to know that in the transplanting of hair on males under the age of 40, it is reasonable to assume that the process of balding will continue, and that is why it is recommended to these men to be treated with Propecia in order to safeguard existing hair that was not transplanted.
