Hair transplants

Hair Transplant

Hair transplant surgery abroad can help you to locate specialist centres overseas. Hair transplantation is the cosmetic procedure used to treat hair loss, hair thinning and bald spots. While the procedure is performed mainly on men, it is not completely rare for women to also seek treatment. The main cause of baldness in males is generally due to genetics and age, with male patterned baldness, where the hairline gradually recedes, being the most common form of balding. Hair transplantation can also be used to treat baldness that is a result of burns, injury and disease.

The process of hair transplantation sees an area of thick hair growth being used to repopulate balder areas. Individual, or small groups of hairs are removed from the scalp and transplanted into the bald scalp, often in a series of surgeries.

  • strip transplants
