Now, the surgeon divides that removed scalp into about 500 - 2000 tiny grafts containing a single or a few hairs. The number as well as the type of grafts used depends on quality, type and color of the hair as well as the volume of the area where it will be transplanted.
Once the grafts are prepared, the surgeon cleans and anesthetized the area where the hair will be placed, creates holes and places each graft in one of the holes.
The transplant takes approximately 4-8 hours depends on the extent of process. If you want thicker hair or continue to lose hair then further sessions may be needed.
Finale hair loss is not always an aesthetic problem. Many health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure are also the reasons for hair loss. Prior opting products for hair loss cures make sure that it’s not something which is causing your hair loss.
