The Benefits of Hair Transplant Surgery for Moderate to Severe Hair Loss

Hair loss, technically known as alopecia, is a common medical condition affecting both men and women of various ages worldwide.  According to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, 35 million men and 21 million women in the U.S. are currently experiencing hair loss.  There are many hair restoration applications that can temporarily promote hair growth, but the optimal solution for treating moderate to severe hair loss is hair transplant surgery.  Hair transplant surgery relocates healthy individual hair follicles from one area of the scalp (donor site) to the targeted area (recipient site) for the most effective results in medical hair restoration.
