Hair grafting

What is hair grafting? Definition 2023.

A hair graft or hair transplant is a surgery, of which we currently have many types, in which hair implants are performed in areas where we do not have hair follicles, and we transplant them from one place to another. What we achieve is to repopulate the hair where we do not have it, looking for a natural result and that the donor area is not left without follicles, as aesthetically we will look with bald spots if we abuse the follicular units extracted.

The grafted hair remains forever in the new donor area, and there will be a gap in the area that has not been the recipient. It can be done in different parts of the body such as the beard, eyebrows, entrances, crown, forehead or head.

Hair grafting when the results are seen

The results are seen after 6 months, when the new hair follicle is beginning to grow. You will see a great change after a year, since the hairs are already thickening in size and practically, you will see the almost definitive result after a few more months.

The results depend a lot on each person. Your level of scarring, your blood coagulation, the vitamins or drugs you take to strengthen the transplant and grow faster or if you are doing any complementary treatment such as PRP to achieve better results.

In both women and men, the time to see results is the same.
