Depending on your level of hair loss, you have a lot of different options when it comes to restoring your hair. Finding the right solution depends on your degree of hair loss and your personal hair restoration goals.
If you’re in the early stages of hair loss, you might consider options such as medications, topical solutions, or low-level laser treatment initially. If your hair loss is more advanced or if you haven’t seen the results you were hoping for with other treatments, you might consider a hair transplant to improve the density of your hair. So how do you decide which solution is right for you?
Here are answers to a few of the most common questions patients have when considering a Bosley hair transplantation.
Is a hair transplant permanent?
Yes. In fact, that’s the main reason why hair transplantation is considered the most effective option for restoring your hair. During surgery, our physicians use your own healthy hair follicles to fill in your thinning or balding areas. These transplanted hairs are resistant to the hormone that causes hair loss — dihydrotestosterone (DHT) — and are considered permanent. Because the transplanted hairs are DHT resistant, they’ll continue to grow even though the non-transplanted hairs around them continue to miniaturize and fall out.
Do hair transplants look natural?
A common worry among those considering hair transplantation is whether the results will look natural, especially if you’ve seen the results of bad hair plugs or other outdated techniques. Fortunately, hair restoration technology has come a long way. In fact, Bosley’s surgical hair transplants can produce results that look completely natural and are undetectable. That’s because our highly skilled surgeons use next-generation hair-by-hair restoration techniques to make sure your newly transplanted hair complements the natural growth pattern of your hairline and facial features.
Is a hair transplant procedure difficult?
A hair transplant is a simple office procedure. Because it is completed in less than a day and involves minimal downtime, many patients return to normal activity in one to two days. Most of the effort involved in a hair transplant procedure involves working with you to design a natural-looking hairline to match your facial shape, features, and age, using the correct hair textures and placement. The complexity lies in the skill, artistry, and experience of your physician, who will re-create a head of hair that will look good for a lifetime.
Will I need other products to maintain my new hair?
Depending on your hair loss classification and stage of hair loss, we may recommend the use of additional treatments, such as low-level laser treatment, topical Rogaine (minoxidil), TriGen+™ with PRP, or Propecia® (finasteride), to help maintain your appearance and prevent future thinning in non-transplanted areas — although those treatments aren’t required.
How important is choosing the right hair transplant surgeon?
It’s extremely important to find a qualified, skilled physician to transplant your hair follicles in a natural-looking way. Bosley physicians specialize in the artistry of creating hairlines that look so natural that the transplant is virtually undetectable to the naked eye.

It looks completely natural. They do an indescribable job of restoring your hairline.” -Grant G.,Actual Bosley Patient
