Hair Plastic Surgery

Hair is a striking feature of human body. Hair loss from scalp and unwanted body and facial hair growth has been a matter of great concern. Whether it is the permanent removal of unwanted hair or restoration / transplantation of hair, the hair surgery procedures are quite popular.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal procedure offer near permanent results. It works when light energy penetrates the skin, converts into heat and causes thermal injury to the hair follicle. The high temperature disables the follicle, effectively weakening it. This can inhibit or slow down re-growth. It successfully removes those hairs that are in growth stage. Repeated visits are necessary to catch all of the hair follicles in one area at one time.
Also known as hair removal electrolysis, it is a way of removing individual hairs from the face or body using a needled that is inserted into the hair follicle. The hair follicle is then “killed” by short wave radio frequencies. Sometimes electric epilators are used for the procedure. Hair electrolysis as a procedure for unwanted hair removal is used to remove hair on the face (eyebrows, upper and lower lips, cheeks, chin, hairline, bridge of the nose between eyebrows, and sideburns) and also on the neck, shoulders, arms and underarms, breasts, abdomen, bikini line, legs, back, and chest.
Hair Transplantation
Hair transplantation is very often a baldness solution for men/women who are losing hair from head. It boosts the confidence and self esteem of a man/woman who is losing hair, however, as with any plastic surgery it is important to keep your expectations of the procedure realistic.
Scalp Reduction
As a baldness solution it is often done in conjunction with hair transplants. It involves surgically removing a portion of the balding area, which causes the bald spot to be smaller. A scalp flap operation involves the transfer of a large portion of hair and scalp from the area behind the temples to the forward, balding part of the head.
Scalp Flaps
It is another solution for male pattern baldness. Scalp flap surgery involves surgically removing a portion of healthy scalp and hair from the back or sides of the head and transplanting it to the front of head. This in effect creates a new hair line.
