There are many ways to fix your hair, if you opt for surgery here are some things you need to know
Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that moves individual hair follicles from the back of the head (strong donor site) to a bald or balding part of the body known as the recipient site. It is mainly used to treat areas of baldness, thin hair but can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, moustache and beard hair
It is a minimally invasive procedure. Grafts are taken from the donor area, this area is genetically resistant to balding, and are transplanted to the bald scalp. The grafts contain the hair and its follicle. It is this follicle that is important in surgical hair transplant
Hair Transplantation can also be used to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants.

There are two good techniques.
FUE - With Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE harvesting, individual follicular units are removed one by one, each follicle containing 1-4 hairs. These grafts are then used in the recipient area where tiny punctures are made so the follicle can sit in a predetermined density and pattern, and angling the follicles so they are consistent and promote a realistic final hair pattern and result. This procedure is conducted under local anesthesia and requires one day of surgery depending on the number of grafts
Strip harvesting has been the most common technique for removing hair and follicles from a donor site but we are seeing this changing more and more recently, strip harvesting is an excellent when you require many grafts to fill a larger area. This procedure is conducted under local anesthesia and requires one day of surgery.
