Hair loss is a very common symptom for ageing men, yet many perceive this as undesirable. While a full head of hair is usually linked to a youthful appearance, hair loss can significantly reduce one’s self-esteem. Hair replacement surgery can restore a full and natural look in one surgical session, which makes it an ideal procedure for many men who are looking to achieve this. It is possible for hair follicles to be placed at a predetermined density and pattern, aligning the incisions in a consistent fashion to promote a realistic hair appearance.

Genetic balding usually occurs on the front, side and on top of the head. Hair replacement is a surgical technique that involves removing a strip of skin containing hair follicles from the posterior scalp which is called the ‘donor site’, this is an area of good hair growth which is genetically resistant to balding. Each follicle is then reinserted into the thinning area with utmost precision. On the front side of the hairline this usually done one by one, while in the area on top of the head pieces of skin which contain 2-4 follicles can be reinserted in order to get a more full effect. This makes hair transplantation a very labor-intensive surgery. You can however rest assured that Dr. Fantozzi and his highly-skilled team will make no concessions with regards to the quality and safety of this procedure.
