Are hair transplants usually successful? Yes! According to statistics, two-thirds of patients are satisfied with their results after undergoing the procedure.

What are Hair Transplants?

There are two main reasons why someone might consider getting a hair transplant. One, they’re experiencing male pattern baldness. And two, they’ve lost a lot of hair—whether through injury or illness—and want to regrow it quickly. For both of these situations, hair transplants can be incredibly helpful. The procedure doesn’t actually grow new hair; rather, it moves follicles from areas with healthy growth to parts of your scalp that are thinning out and need them most.

How do Hair Transplants Work?

When you hear that someone had a hair transplant, they usually mean that they’ve undergone a surgical procedure to move hair from one area of their body to another. There are a few different ways that surgeons approach transplants: some remove tissue from an area on your head and place it in another area, while others take grafts from your head and then micrograft them—that is, add new hairs one by one—to balding areas.

Risks and Benefits of Hair Transplants

A common question asked by men is do I need a hair transplant? This question has been around for ages and still continues to be asked. There are many factors that contribute to whether or not you need a hair transplant, but in our eyes, there are really only two factors: 1) Your age, and 2) Your genetic disposition towards hair loss. If you do not fit into either of these two categories you may safely assume that you do not need a hair transplant.

Do I Need a Hair Transplant?

Let’s face it: you wouldn’t be reading about hair transplants if you didn’t have some hair loss. There are three degrees of hair loss: there is male pattern baldness, which affects 40% of men; female pattern baldness, which affects about 25% of women and is more diffuse than male pattern baldness; and there is also age-related hair loss that afflicts around half of those over 50 years old.
