Male Ethiopian who had hair transplant

Most of us take our locks for granted, just as we do our health and youth, until they’re gone. A hair transplant can help many patients regain what appears to be a complete head of hair, or at least a fuller head of hair.
If you’re concerned about thinning hair or turning bald, the process can help you feel more confident about your appearance. However, you should first speak with your doctor about what to expect before and after the procedure. It’s a sort of surgery in which existing hair is moved to fill in areas where there is thin or no hair. In the United States, doctors have been performing these transplants since the 1950s, but procedures have evolved significantly in recent years. The procedure is normally performed in the doctor’s office. The surgeon begins by cleaning your scalp and injecting a numbing agent into the back of your head. Your doctor will perform the transplant using one of two methods: follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) or follicular unit extraction (FUE).
A 6- to 10-inch piece of skin from the back of your skull is removed with FUSS. They put it on the shelf and sew the scalp shut. The hair around it immediately hides this spot. The surgeon’s team then splits the severed scalp strip into 500 to 2,000 microscopic grafts, each containing one or a few hairs.
