Having a full head of hair is as much about confidence as it is about appearance. Men who feel self-conscious about their baldness have many options for hair replacement surgery. New techniques and surgical breakthroughs give surgeons the ability to use your own hair to replace the hair you’ve lost. Scalp reduction, tissue expansion, strip grafts, scalp flaps, or clusters of punch grafts (plugs, miniplugs and microplugs) are surgical alternatives to less effective therapies.

CostsDepending on the technique and the amount of hair replacement, surgery can be performed under either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Your surgeon will discuss which anesthesia is necessary for your surgery during your consultation. Hair replacement surgery can take between 1 to 3 hours and is commonly performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning you will be able to return home the same day. You may need several treatments over a period of 6 to 18 months based on the amount of hair to be replaced.
Surgeon FeesHair replacement has become a highly specialized field with many physicians pioneering their own techniques. For this reason, surgeon fees will vary greatly from one physician to another. Hair replacement is surgery of the scalp so you health and safety are as important as your desired look.

Strenuous work or exercise that causes a rise in blood pressure should be avoided for 2 to 3 weeks. You will begin to see results during your initial recovery period, but your final results might not be visible for up to 18 months.
