You may be surprised to hear that hair restoration surgery can trace its history back more than fifty years. However the methods used over half a century ago are very similar to the methods which are used in the 21st century.
Simply put hair restoration is the replacement of hair which is thinning or has fallen out. Causes of hair loss can be accidental from surgery, burns or trauma; self inflicted from compulsive hair pulling and eyebrow plucking; or genetic, as in female and male pattern baldness.
Are you thinking of having hair restoration surgery? If you are you can book a no obligation free of charge consultation at an Advanced Hair Studio clinic today. We have hair loss specialists who can look at and examine your hair and advise you on the best course of treatment.
Some types of hair loss, unfortunately, are irreversible, but our specialists will do everything they can to help.
