Hair Transplant Success Rate
The success or survival rate of a hair transplant is a common concern for many candidates suffering from hair loss. There has been lots of debate in the past decade over what method of hair transplantation yields a higher survival rate. We have prepared an article describing the survival rates of each transplantation technique and an explanation of the variance.
The transection rate, while not as common of a concern for potential hair transplant candidates should be examined before deciding on a hair transplant surgeon. The lower the transection rate, the more skilled the surgeon is.
