Bald heads are a common sight among
men. Some go bald later in life while
others go bald very early. While most of
the time this is a genetic trait, known as
male pattern baldness, for others it’s the
result of illness or treatment of an illness.
No matter if it’s just a genetic thing or a
result of being sick there is something
that you can do about it. Hair restoration
is a common practice and can give you
back what genetics took away.
Hair restoration is a relatively simple
procedure that uses your own hair to fll
in the thinning spots. What the doctors
will do is take a section from the back
of your head, which often has more
follicles, and place them on the top,
where it is usually thinning. The new
transplant will then continue to grow,
flling in the spots and giving you the
look that you once had. Since it is real,
you will be able to do what you would
normally do as far as washing and
There are a few things you should know
before getting hair restoration. For
starters the newly transplanted follicles
will shed at frst. This does not mean
that the procedure wasn’t a success;
on the contrary it is simply the way it
grows. You don’t notice it normally but
you shed all the time. So you should
expect to see that in the beginning.
The follicle, which contains the root,
is simply getting rid of the old sheath.
Once that is done the root will begin
creating new growth. It might take a
couple of months for you to see any real
improvement in the way you look. Just
be patient, it will grow.
You may also be told by your doctor to
go easy on the newly transplanted area
for a while. This is simply to give the
follicle time to adjust to the new location.
By following your doctor’s instructions
you allow the root to take hold and begin
growing. In a month or two you should
be able to treat the newly transplanted
follicles as you normally would. You’ll be
able to comb it, wash it , and trim it as
it gets to be too long. Again you simply
have to be patient with it so that it
becomes a permanent feature.
Hair restoration
is a great way to
get back what you
have lost. There are

with this type of
procedure but
you should go to
a specialist all the
same. This way
