Hair Transplants
The Ultimate Solution to Hair Loss

What is a hair transplant?

With hair transplantation, hair is moved from one area of the body (usually referred to as the “donor area”) and transferred to the thinning or balding area (recipient site). The transferred tissue is not “rejected” as it is not foreign tissue. The transplanted hair maintains its own characteristics; color, texture, growth rate, curl, etc. after transplantation and growth. Originally, large circular hair grafts containing 15-20 hairs were transplanted resulting in noticeable and unnatural results. This is sometimes referred to as the “corn row” method or the “doll look.” Techniques have since been developed that achieve natural results by transplanting small follicular units very close together. Also, Nu/Hart physicians never put grafts in rows. Rather, they are staggered and follow your own hair growth pattern. Typically, hair grows from the scalp in groups of one, two, and three hair follicles. These natural follicular units can be placed closer together, resulting in a denser and more natural look. Single follicular units are often used to create a wispy and natural front hairline, whereas multiple follicular units are used to provide greater density in the center of the scalp.
