Lifetime Results with Hair Transplant Surgery
Hair transplants at Alabama Hair Transplant in Birmingham, Alabama are a permanent solution for the restoration of natural, healthy, growing hair to balding or thinning regions. Nourished by the large number of blood vessels present in scalp skin, transplant survival is virtually 100% for most patients. The hair follicles transplanted from the donor areas, genetically programmed to produce vibrant terminal hair for a lifetime, retain their characteristics of loss resistance, color, texture, curl and growth rate.
Hair transplant patients should not be alarmed when the transplanted hairs fall out 2 to 4 weeks after surgery. After 3 to 6 months, these hair follicles will enter a new anagen phase and begin to actively grow. The new growth appears initially as fine, light-colored hairs that gradually increase in length and diameter. Progressive cosmetic improvement continues for up to 12 to 15 months. Thereafter, the new hair will grow at a normal rate of 1/2 inch per month for the rest of your life.
Scars left in the donor area where the hair transplants are obtained during the Follicular Unit Transplantation procedure are so small as to be almost undetectable. Our Birmingham, Alabama Hair Transplant Surgeons carefully remove thin strips of hair or individual follicular units in a random pattern where the incisions will be obscured by the surrounding hair. Most patients can wear their hair very short without revealing visible scars.
