This process makes the hair in the transplanted area appear thicker. The duration of the operation can vary between 6 and 8 hours. The process may vary depending on your hair loss.

Hair transplantation is the most effective natural and permanent method to get new hair to people who experience hair loss. The purpose of hair transplantation is to ensure that the patients have a healthy, natural, new appearance as if they had never lost hair.
