Pros and cons of different hair transplant techniques

There are many new approaches to deal with hair loss issues but a hair transplant is still the best among them. If you are either facing baldness or excessive hair loss, hair transplant is vital in restoring most of the hair back on your head. There are different techniques for performing a hair transplant including FUT hair transplant, FUE hair transplant and Stem Cell FUE hair transplant.  Before choosing any technique, you need to have a session with your hair transplant surgeon to select an appropriate technique for your specific hair loss concerns.

Hair transplant is a surgical procedure in which hair follicles are transplanted from baldness resistant areas to the bald areas. Hair replacement in this procedure is permanent and completely natural. The transplanted hair never fall again in most cases.
