There is one method of hair loss treatment that has an almost 100% success rate. This is much better than any other method for re-growing hair on the market. Even the two drugs accepted by the FDA as effective at treating hair loss, Finasteride and Minoxidil, can only show results in about 70% and 50% of the test subjects respectively. If you are suffering the humiliation of bald spots then you need to check out what it would take to get hair implants in the balding area.

The hair implants for men procedure has been around since the 1950's. At that time they were generally known as hair plugs. This name was quite appropriate considering how the implants looked after surgery. The hair implantation procedure at this time consisted of removing small areas of scalp that still contained good hair growth and transplanting those sections into the bald area. This resulted in tufts of hair that stuck up every which way like the hair that is plugged into the skull of a cheap doll. The end results really looked worse than the bald spot the hair plugs were intended to treat. This has changed with the new micro-surgical techniques available.

This procedure is not cheap but it does give very good results and the hair implants will continue to grow for years. Hair implant costs generally run about $3 to $7 per implant unit depending on where the procedure is performed and the type of process chosen.

There are two method of hair implantation that are practiced today. The standard method involves removal of an area of the skin at the back of the head. The hair follicles are then removed from this patch and transplanted into the bald area. This method requires good hair growth at the back of the head. The second procedure actually removes the hair follicles from the skin individually. This allows for hair to be transplanted from other areas of the body besides just the head. This type of implantation works great for people with thinning hair.

Whichever method is used, hair implants for men are a great way to get that full head of hair back.
