General Information About

Hair loss can cause significant problems in men and women. It is mostly an inherited condition. Hair transplantation should be considered when medical treatment options are insufficient. Significant progress has been made in this regard in recent years. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. According to the condition of the hair, the roots taken from the back and both sides of the head are placed in the holes prepared in the open area. Wounds and crusts formed in the area where the hair is removed and transplanted heal within a month without leaving any traces. In the success of the result, the experience of the team is as important as the size of the baldness and the quality of the hair.
