Restores natural hair to areas of hair loss.
The patient can return to work within a few days, but should avoid strenuous activity for approximately five to ten days. Small scabs will form around the grafted follicles and will fall off within a week. Hair in the grafted follicles will shed in approximately two to four weeks, and will begin to grow back within approximately three months. Final results are typically achieved in eight to ten months.
Hair in the restored areas is permanent and will grow like the original hair in terms of color and texture. When performed by a skilled surgeon this procedure is typically rewarding and improves self-confidence.
