Health Tip: Hair Transplants for Baldness

(HealthDay News) -- A hair transplant is a surgical procedure in which hairs are moved from an area of thick growth to bald areas of the scalp.

Hair transplants can improve the appearance and self-confidence of those who are balding, says the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

Risks of hair transplants are generally minimal, but include bleeding, infection, scarring and unnatural-looking tufts. Usually, the replaced hairs are permanent, and long-term care isn't necessary.
