When medical treatment no longer improves or is no longer sufficient, hair transplantation, also called hair transplantation, remains the best treatment for treating hair loss.

This surgical treatment consists of removing hair from the back of the skull, in the occipital and temporal regions, where the hair is resistant to hair loss (we speak of a donor area) and grafting it where you lack hair (the recipient area which varies from person to person).

The hair at the back is quite different from the hair at the front: In fact, it is not subjected to male hormones, that is to say, it does not refine over time. They fall, of course, but grow back in exactly the same way.

It is this characteristic which is used in the hair transplant, because this hair transplanted in front will keep their initial characteristics and will never be refined again.

A first consultation is of course necessary to make a clinical and photographic development, to assess the lack of hair and the amount of hair to be grafted as well as the density present in the donor area.

Hair surgeons often speak of grafts and not of hair to quantify hair transplants. A graft, also called follicular unit, is made up of 1 to 4 hairs on average.
