Hair loss is primarily caused by a combination of aging, hormonal changes, and a family history of baldness. As a rule, the earlier hair loss begins, the more severe the baldness will become. Hair loss can also be caused by burns or trauma, in which cases hair replacement surgery is considered a reconstructive treatment. This procedure could enhance your appearance and self-esteem, but results won't necessarily match your ideal outcome. We would advise you to extensively discuss your expectations with your surgeon prior to the procedure. Hair transplant surgery uses your existing hair, and it is important that patients have healthy growing hair at the back and sides of the head to serve as donor area. Other factors such as hair color, texture, and waviness may also affect the cosmetic result. This procedure is done in stages under local or intravenous sedation, depending on the patient's and surgeon's preference and comfortableness.
