A hair transplant can be a very detailed and long process for both men and women. Excellent knowledge of the steps of the procedure can ensure a perfect hair transplant if the need for one ever arises. The first step entails a consultation including a comprehensive hair loss diagnosis. The second step in the process is called harvesting. Harvesting is the hair removal process and usually uses either follicular unit grafting or follicular unit extraction. The next step, dissection, includes sorting the follicles under a powerful binocular microscope. By keeping them intact, the result will be much healthier and natural looking hair. The fourth step is implantation. This is the most important step to ensure hair looks natural and things run smoothly. Finally, the last step is maintenance. It is important to combine nonsurgical hair loss treatments with a long term plan to prevent future hair loss and keep your hair transplant results looking fresh. By following these steps to success, you will have an amazing change in your hair’s appearance.
