What is Hair Transplant?
Hair transplant in Singapore is a surgical procedure where the hair care specialist will transplant parts of your head that have less or no hair with patches or strips of your skin that contains donor hair. These patches or strips are usually taken from the sides or the back of your head.
The hair care specialist will create slits or holes in the parts of your scalp that need hair transplantation to implant the donor hair. The other form of hair transplantation is the scalp flap procedure, during which the hair care specialist will graft a part of your scalp that has hair onto the parts of your scalp that don’t have hair.
It is important to note that hair transplantation is a surgical procedure. Hence, only a licensed professional can perform this hair loss solution. This is also the reason why hair transplantation is not suitable for everyone, especially those who are suffering from illnesses like diabetes, hypertension, etc. so it is advisable that you consult your physician before choosing to undergo this surgery.
Like every other surgical procedure, hair transplantation in Singapore comes with pain and risks and costs you time and money. Even as an outpatient surgical treatment, this procedure can take up to 8 hours, and the healing period may last for around 2 years with multiple follow-up sessions. However, the patients of hair transplantation have found this to be a valuable investment, as the end results this procedure produces are more than satisfactory. The hair implants will render you a natural feel and appearance, making every penny and second you spent, worth it.
Frequently Asked Questions About Hair Transplant in Singapore
Will I Feel Pain During and After the Hair Transplant?
