Frontal Hair Transplants

Frontal Hair Loss is a very common problem for the male species. It can lower self esteem. Many men resort to hair transplant surgery.

Frontal hair transplants are one of the most commonly used transplant procedures in the world. The front of the head, along with the top, are the most common areas to loose hair. Hair loss occurs from DHT, the hormone that causes the follicles in the front and top of the head to shrink in size and stop growing hair.

Frontal Hair Transplants - How do they work?

Even extremely bald men still have a ring of hair around the back and sides of their heads. This hair is not lost during the balding process because the follicles themselves are not affected by the DHT hormone.

In frontal hair transplantation surgery a piece of this skin containing these follicles is removed from the back and sides of the head. The follicles are then extracted from the surrounding tissue and then are reinserted into the frontal area of the scalp. Since the follicles themselves are not affected by the hormone DHT, they continue to grow hair even after they have been moved from the back of the head to the front of the head.

A Frontal Hair Transplant Surgery can be expensive. Most hair transplant procedures range from $3,500 to $9,000.

A surgery can leave you with swelling and discomfort for less than a week. However, keep in mind you may need multiple sessions to complete full hair restoration. Unless you use a drug like Propecia after having a transplant, you will continue to see an increase in hair loss from the non-transplanted hairs that were growing there before the transplant. In this case additional transplant procedures may be performed to increase the density.

A successful hair transplant can leave you with a full replacement head of hair after a period of about 1-year from Frontal Hair Transplant surgery.
