Frequently Asked Questions – Hair Replacement (Hair Transplants)
How is hair replacement surgery performed?Hair follicles are taken from areas of the scalp that have an ample amount of hair. These follicles are then replanted in areas of the head without hair. The newly planted hair will fall out shortly after the operation which is referred to as shock loss. Shock loss is temporary and the hair will grow back permanently in almost all cases.
Does hair replacement surgery leave scars?Modern hair replacement surgery will leave very minuscule scars to the scalp which cannot be detected with the growth of hair.
How quickly will my hair grow back after hair transplants?It can take anywhere from 4-7 months before the hair will grow back after transplant surgery.
How much does hair replacement surgery cost?Hair replacement surgery varies greatly dependant upon the amount of hair being transplanted. Typically the cost can go from $6,000-$30,000 and even higher.
