Ohio, Ohio (AP) A hair transplant is a procedure that will turn a person's head hairless and turn them into a new person.The procedure is popular in New York City, where it is called the "babysitting" of a transplanted face.It is also common in other parts of the world, including the United States, Canada and Israel.It's not a very common procedure.The U.S. has only about a dozen such transplants ...
With hair transplants like the one seen in this video, the goal is to grow your own healthy, full hair.
Now experts are taking on the task of helping transplant patients with their hair transplanted to a new type of scalp, to ensure that they can still grow their own hair.
Dr. David Dominguez, who heads the hair transplant program at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, says that there’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding the process.
He told CBS News that many patients aren’t aware of the options available for transplanting their hair to a completely new scalp.
In a recent article in the journal Nature, Domingues co-author Dr. Jana Mihajlovic said the procedure is not just for transplant surgeons.
Hair transplant patients must also undergo the same surgical procedure that doctors do on healthy hair.
Mihajlavs team will begin transplanting patients with a new scalp to a type of skin called a microchip, and they’ll be followed by two years of hair transplant surgery.
Hair transplants are still a relatively new technology, and doctors are still learning about the proper techniques.
In recent years, transplant surgeries have expanded to other areas of the body, such as the legs, arms, and stomach.
The goal of these surgeries is to help people get their hair back to normal.
The next step in hair transplant is for transplant patients to grow their hair normally.
Hair will still grow on their scalp, but it’ll also have to be removed from the scalp itself.
Dr Mihaji has a lot more questions than he has answers for.
She wants to know what exactly will happen to the hair before it’s transplanted.
She also wants to make sure that transplant surgeons are able to handle the process correctly.
“We are hoping to have them do everything that’s normal with hair transplans,” Mihanias team said in a statement.
“We want them to be able to understand the proper process and to be comfortable with it.”
