Can I Receive a Hair Transplant if I’m Completely Bald?
Hair transplantation is the only permanent solution to hair loss. Generally speaking, the procedure involves taking hair from where you have more than you need and moving it to areas that are thinning or bald.
The area where the hair is moved from is called the “donor area”. In men this area is on the sides and back of the head where hair and follicles are resistant to the effects of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is the primary cause of male-pattern hair loss where hair thins around the temples and crown of the head.
