where a lot of importance is accorded to appearance and its upkeep, loss of hair ends up causing loss of confidence and a lack of self esteem. Fortunately, current medical advances have made it possible for hair transplant surgeons to restore both the lost hair and the lost confidence. Hair transplant surgery today is a day care procedure, and the patient can resume their normal activities in a day or two.

Repeat sittings are planned if considered necessary after a period of 9 - 12 months.
