Hair transplant featuring a substantial part of the beauty industry is currently gaining interest and relevance since men are sensitively responding to all kinds of hair loss due to aesthetical reasons. Not only is it of particular matter for males, also an increasing number of women is showing interest for hair transplants according to rising requests at numerous clinics of noted physicians. Aesthetical appearance, natural beauty and attractiveness are significantly associated with power and self-confidence being effectively disseminated by the media.

Hair loss has no longer to be accepted as an irreversible fact since hair restoration is now being offered in many countries for those who suffer from inherited balding. Unfortunately the final results of patients undergoing a hair transplant vary from excellent to very poor. The quality of a hair surgeon is determined by a high technical standard, years of experience and a never ending interest in the development of methods and techniques. As outdated methods for hair transplant are still available it is necessary to opt for the latest-state-of-the-art technique avoiding emotional distress and great embarrassment of the patients lately. Hair transplant patients with poor results are often displaying visible scars or unnatural appearance due to unprofessional treatment. Even hair transplants performed with modern methods are often leading to lower yields in hair growth and unnaturally designed hairlines when being performed by hair surgeons lacking all necessary training and skills. As an undetectable outcome and a natural density always have to be achieved with every hair transplant it is important to find experienced hair surgeons.
