Having a hair transplant is a life altering experience, especially for the younger individuals whose image takes high priority. Ones physical image affects all aspects of a person's life from self-esteem to the social impact that it makes on both career and personal interrelationships. It is no wonder there is an increase in the number of individuals seeking Dermatologic and Aesthetic services, which now include Hair transplant surgery.
In general, Hair Transplant Surgery is the method of transferring good, strong hairs from a donor area (ie. scalp hair, body hair) and transferring them to thinning or balding sites, such as the balding scalp, thinning eyebrows, sparse beard/goatie/sideburns or chest hairs.
The most common of the above types of Hair Transplant Surgeries is the transferring of hairs onto a balding head (scalp), otherwise know as Hair Transplantation (HT). This can be done for both men and women with Male or Female Pattern Hair Loss -- the most common cause of hair loss among men and women. This type of hair loss is affected by both genetics and by hormones (androgens).
The second most common hair transplant surgery procedure is the transfer of hairs onto thinning or sparse eyebrows known as Eyebrow Transplantation (EBT). This entails harvesting single hairs that are of similar caliber to existing eyebrow hairs to recreate the natural appearance of the eyebrows. The transplanted hairs, however, requires regular trimming and taming since they grow much faster and longer than eyebrow hairs.
Facial hair Transplantation includes the transfer of hairs onto the Beard/Goatie/Sideburns areas for individuals with incomplete or sparse facial hairs. Having a beard, goatie, or sideburn can affect the 'masculinity' of a man's face. Most patients just want their beards/goatie/sideburns to be more even (filling the gaps) and cohesive, while others want to thicken their existing beards/goatie/sideburns.
Lastly, Chest hair Transplant is the transfer of hairs on the chest to either create chest hairs where there are none or thicken the chest hair area. Again, chest hairs are considered 'masculinizing' and more 'normal' for men than not having any chest hairs at all.
