Male pattern baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia is the most common cause of hair loss in men, as the percentage of men who experience some male pattern hair loss reaches about 60%.
Hair loss can be a major concern to many, and hair transplantation surgery is the most common, at the same time the most effective procedure to handle this problem.
You may have run into a lot of products that are being marketed as a treatment for hair loss, such as, shampoos, some oils, or laser combs, however, all of these products haven’t been proven to be clinically effective in general, and thus hair transplantation is now the best treatment for those who complain of hair loss.

In this step, the extracted follicles are inserted into the opened channels, and given that the last couple steps are the most important ones, they require high skills, as the surgeon takes into consideration, the density, esthetic results, and natural hair growth.
Hair transplantation usually takes 4 hours or more, and it may take up to 8 hours, and some cases may require more than one session in order to achieve the required hair coverage.
