What is hair transplant for men?
In the past people relied on wigs or natural recipes to solve the problem of hair loss, but most of these traditional methods were impractical and did not produce any results, as well as wigs were subjected to many embarrassing situations.
The same with treatments that claiming to help restore hair, although most of them have no role but to keep the hair as it is, to prevent anymore lose. In addition, these treatments needed to be sustained throughout the lifetime, and only start to give any results after long times.
Since the 1980s, the idea of the hair transplant start to get more and more popular. Doctors came up with an idea of extracting the appropriate hair follicles from the healthy areas of the patient’s scalp and replanting them in areas with baldness according to certain criteria, helping them to grow again.

In the technique of Pens Choi hair transplant for men, bulbs get implanted directly without the need to open the channels and processing.
Between the two sessions of surgery, the patient is given time to rest and having a little snack, and then leave the center or clinic immediately after the surgery, as the modern techniques used have made the need for follow-up and stay under care completely not called for, except in special cases, and for other health reasons nothing to do with the surgery itself.
