Happy New Year! Start the New Year with a new you. Hair transplant procedures have come a long way since they were first used on a large scale beginning in the United States in the 1950s. The first large round sized plugs that were used at that time have now evolved into five different transplant grafts, all with different sizes that can be used for different purposes and to create different appearances.
Before and after photos of the patients at Beverly Hills Hair Restoration show how natural these techniques have advanced. Physicians and researchers continue to study the hair loss process and make attempts at improving hair transplantation procedures. While these procedures are now the best they have ever been, and in fact, rarely fail; there is still much work that can be done. One of the trends in hair transplantation research focuses on attempting to create better results from existing procedures. The bulk of this research lies in arranging the transplanted grafts and follicular units in the most eye pleasing way possible, so that the results blend in with the remaining hair in the most optimal way. Hair transplant surgery is as much of an art as it is a science. Researchers and surgeons will continue to work towards perfecting the canvas of hair transplant surgery.
