The facts about hair transplantation
We live in a society which views good hair as a sign of good health. Especially, for a woman, a long hair is a sign of her femininity. So it is really challenging to live in this society with alopecia or hair loss problems. Both men and women suffer from hair loss at some point of time. This leads to self- consciousness, frustration, change in appearance, embarrassment, and many other problems.
Therefore, when you observe more hair loss than people normally have and slowly hair becoming thinner, it would be beneficial to consult a specialist. They generally recommend a hair transplant.
The hair transplant technique:

The part from which the hair follicle is taken is called the “donor site” and the part in which it is placed is called the “recipient site”. Both men and women are suitable for undergoing this procedure. But there are some important facts which you should know about hair transplantation. They are:

A person who is suffering from permanent hair loss is a candidate for the transplant.
A person who have a reasonable expectation and who knows about the limitations of the procedure is the best candidate for hair transplant.
