What Is a Hair Transplant & How Does It Work?

A hair transplant procedure from Padra is the proven, permanent solution to genetic hair loss.

What Is a Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant is a procedure that involves transplanting hair follicles from one area of the head (the “donor area”) to the thinning area (the “recipient area”). Healthy full-size vigorously growing follicles are moved from the donor scalp to thinning areas to increase the density of growing hair.

Benefits of Hair Transplant Procedures

There are many benefits that come with a well-performed hair transplant procedure, like the ones performed by the hair restoration specialists at Padra.

The greatest benefit is that it’s your own real, growing hair that you can wash, cut and do whatever you want with.

Another advantage is that hair transplants offer natural-looking results because the hair comes from your own head, and has the right texture and color.

A hair transplant is also a permanent treatment. This means you don’t have to worry about if it will fall out again, because it won’t.

A hair transplant is a low-maintenance option. You care for the transplants in the same way you would the rest of your hair.

Most patients typically only need one procedure but depending on hair restoration goals, future loss of native hair, and the number of grafts received, patients can opt for future procedures.

Do Hair Transplants Work?

This is one of the most common questions we receive from our patients. The short answer is yes, hair transplants work. But you may wonder: why are hair transplants so successful? Thanks to Dr. Norman Orentriech’s concept of Donor Dominance, we have a better understanding of why hair tissue taken from donor sites successfully regenerates new hair at the recipient site. Based on transplanted tissue leading to the growth of healthy hairs, Dr. Orentriech concluded that the physical traits of hair follicles from the donor area were dominant over the physical traits of the scalp tissue at the recipient site. 

Additionally, the Donor Dominance concept revealed interesting information about the role of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in hair transplants. DHT is a hormone that binds hair tissue’s cellular receptors but over time, high levels of DHT can lead to hair loss in certain people. Generally, hair follicles from donor sites are resistant to DHT when transplanted to recipient sites — no matter where on the scalp the tissue is transplanted. Donor Dominance demonstrates that despite an equal amount of DHT in hair tissue, transplanted hair successfully grows in recipient sites, making hair transplants the most effective and the only permanent solution for hair loss.

​​Years of research have since been done and in fact, all confirm that hair transplant procedures are proven as a safe and permanent solution for restoring your hair. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) states that the average survival rate of hair grafts is now 90% to 100% when performed by a qualified physician and team. For most people, new growth will be noticeable approximately 3 months after a hair transplant procedure, but it can take up to 12 months to see full results.
