Do Hair Transplants Really Look Natural?

Question:

I'm 28 yrs old and I have been suffering from male pattern baldness. I used to think about hair transplants every single day but I'm afraid my hair will appear unnatural after a hair transplant. And, will hair continue to grow for a lifetime after being transplanted?

Answer:

State of the art, ultra-refined follicular unit hair transplantation is perfectly natural in appearance and virtually undetectable. However, in order to achieve the best possible results you have to start with a skilled and experienced hair restoration physician. I recommend that you consult our interactive map and locate the prescreened quality hair restoration physicians nearest you.

Hair that is transplanted from the permanent donor area at the rear and sides of the head to the balding areas of the scalp should continue to grow for life. However, for most men, hair loss is progressive. Therefore, you may continue to lose more of your existing, natural hair. In order to stabilize this hair loss, most hair transplant physicians recommend using Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (minoxidil) in conjunction with hair transplant surgery to achieve the best results.

For further research I also recommend you visit our Hair Restoration Forum and social network.
