Hair transplant is a surgical as well as a cosmetic procedure to get the lost hair back to your head. It has its advantages and disadvantages. While hair loss is a natural phenomena, getting hair transplanted in not natural hence certain precautions have to be taken before making up your mind about hair transplantation.

Hair transplantation is done to restore lost hair and make the person look like before. One should choose an expert who is good at his job. Before the transplant commences the patient should take an estimate from his / her doctor. The most popular method of transplant is the follicular unit transplantation. The surgeon who is doing the transplant should be comfortable with the microscopic dissection method – this will help reduce the related complications associated with hair transplant and give better result.

Benefits of hair transplantation

1. One major benefit of hair transplantation is that this procedure has been around for a very long time. Due to this, modern medicine has a firm control on this procedure and has been improved and honed upon to near-perfection through several attempts.
2. Another great benefit of this transplantation is that it is a very versatile procedure. Hair transplantation may be used to correct male pattern baldness, scarring and for facial reconstructions as well.
3. Amongst other benefits of hair transplant, another good thing is that they work immediately. Chemical treatments take months or sometimes even years to work or may never show results at all but a hair transplantation works on your immediately and takes around 4 hours to complete. This gives immense mental gratification and is a positive fact regarding the procedure.

Things to consider before a hair transplant

Hair transplantation is a more or less minor procedure but it is still surgery and carries some kind of risk or complications. The most common of the risks are catching an infection. Similarly it is the fact that hair transplants can be extremely costly but actually the cost of any transplant depends entirely on the number of grafts (transplanted hair follicles) that are involved in the surgery. Often at times each graft can cost between $3 and $7 which also means that that the entire process may go well over $10,000, but the price of each surgery varies considerably.

One common myth or misconception regarding hair transplants is something that that patients need to know - hair that is transplanted through grafts is not, as most patients believe necessarily permanent. Transplanted hair can and often does thin after the procedure and this is a common phenomena. The transplanted hair is basically more resistant to falling out and almost often remains thicker than the individual's natural hair. Hair transplant is definitely a good option for people who are bald and want to grow hair and look headful.

A headful of hair is not only cosmetically attractive but also adds to the appearance of a person. Good hair or a stylish hair style makes a person look more fashionable and he or she feels more confident in public places and when surrounded by people. Nowadays with so many options for hair re-growth available there is no reason why a person needs to stay bald.
