I have male pattern baldness and I am considering hair transplant surgery. If male pattern baldness is progressive, how would I be able to achieve a permanent full head of hair? It was recommended by my doctor that I get 4,000 grafts. I would be ok getting this done in one session, but I would rather not have to keep going back for surgery every few years. Is this a permanent solution or am I just delaying the inevitable?
Since donor hairs are taken from the back of the head where these hairs are resistant or less affected by DHT (Dihydrotestotorone, a natural metabolite that causes hair loss) and then transferred to the affected areas, the completed procedure will be permanent.
