hair transplant

Will a hair transplant be noticeable to people around me?

That depends on a few different factors. When we transplant your hair from the back of the scalp to the top or front, it is done in an artistic and natural pattern so that it matches your natural hair follicles. Hair grows in what is known as follicular units where 1, 2, or 3 hairs are grouped with a follicle. Each of these follicular units makes up a single graft. During the transplant process, a tiny slit is made for each single graft which will follow the natural waves and angles of your hair. So when the hair grows out, it will appear just as your natural hair did. The frontal hair line is recreated by using single hair grafts and we give it a fine irregular pattern that is similar to your natural hair line. 

So for most people, once the hair has grown in, it is very difficult for someone to know that you have had transplants. I have been involved in hair restoration for 14 years and many times I cannot tell the difference between the grafts and the natural hairs years afterwards. That is good work. However, if you have a large area of hair loss or your hair loss is quite far progressed and you have it transplanted, then of course people will notice. They will see your great hair!
