Though the technical procedure of Follicular Unit Extraction hair restoration is the same for all, there are some differences between ethnicities only an expert knows to take note of.

For this patient, 3,000 grafts were transplanted to create the new hairline. It was such a success that the patient has had a hard […]

At any given time 10-15% of the hair in our head is in what is called a “resting phase” and after 2-3 months resting, hair falls out and new hair grows in its place.
