A hair transplant is a procedure in which a cosmetic surgeon moves hair to a bald area of the head. The surgeon commonly moves hair from the back or side of the head to the top or front of the head. Hair transplants generally happen in a medical office under local anesthesia.
Genetics is primarily responsible for the most of baldness (alopecia) cases. Remaining cases of baldness occur due to different factors, including stress, dies, illness, and medications.
There are two types of hair transplant procedures: micro-grafts and slit grafts. Micro-grafts include one or two hairs per graft, depending much on the amount of coverage needed. On the other hand, slit-grafts contain four to ten hairs per graft.
