What is a hair transplant?

Hair transplant procedures rely on the genetics of hair growth. In the vast majority of people who lose their hair, a sizable portion of hair never falls out. This hair usually a fringe above the ears and around the back, is genetically encoded to grow throughout life. It is this permanently growing hair that serves as the "donor" region. The roots, or follicles, are removed and transplanted to a thinning area. Unlike hair weaves or wigs, the transplanted hair is permanent and will continue to grow indefinitely.
