WHY COOSE NON-SURGICAL OVER SURGICAL?
So why would you choose non-surgical hair replacement over other treatments for male-pattern baldness? The first and the foremost reason is that, for a lot of men, other routes such as using Minoxidil or Finasteride do not work. So if they cannot generate hair regrowth via medical routes, non-surgical hair replacement is their best option. Of course, in these sorts of cases, non-surgical hair replacement is not their only option. They could try surgery. However, for many men who have male-pattern baldness, surgery is the last resort. One reason for this is that many people just do not want to have surgery unless it is absolutely necessary. Another reason is that surgery takes existing hair and moves it around your head.
LETS HAVE A LOOK ON HOW TRANSPLANTS WORK.
Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that moves hair follicles from a part of the body called the 'donor site' to a bald or balding part of the body known as the 'recipient site'. It is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. In this minimally invasive procedure, grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding, (like the back of the head) are transplanted to the bald scalp. Hair transplantation can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, public hair and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants. Hair transplantation differs from skin grafting in that grafts contain almost all of the epidermis and dermis surrounding the hair follicle, and many tiny grafts are transplanted rather than a single strip of skin.
