I was always concerned about my wide forehead since my childhood years. I was introduced to Forhair clinic by a friend of mine who already had her surgery few months prior. I did some research and decided to have my surgery at the clinic after reading that the clinic is recommended by other surgeons. My whole experience at Forhair was amazing starting with the consultations. The consulting manager explained even the smallest details and Dr. Ryu was very friendly and professional during consultation and my surgery. I had CIT(Box-Cut) surgery to lower my hairline. I was able to disguise the shaved area with my remaining hair so I was able to return to my normal life as usual after 2~3 days. The surgery started at 9AM and finished at 6PM. I was entertained throughout the surgery process with their TV system which allowed me to watch movies and past TV shows on demand. The Korean TV shows which did not have subtitles was a blow but nevertheless the experience wasn’t as daunting as I thought it would be.

I had 2 surgeries over a year and a half period. Both went well with little discomfort, stress, or another issue. Honestly, one of the biggest issues for me was not being able to wash my hair for several days! Also, I had to sleep in one position for a few nights, but this recovery time passes quickly. I went from semi-serious balding in the front and crown to a pretty nice, full head of hair. The doctors and staff were great. Thanks for outstanding results! Overall, Forhair provided excellent service. They explained the process, answered my questions, and were there with me every step of the way. I would highly recommend them if you're considering this procedure. It's a difficult decision to make, but Forhair made it much easier. So far I am happy with my progress and I can’t wait till all my transplanted hair grows and I have my complete hairline.

Hair Transplantation

Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure used to move skin containing hair follicles from one part of the body (donor site) to the bald or balding parts (recipient site). Hair transplants are primarily used to treat hair loss in men and women, as well as restoring eyelashes, eyebrows, and other facial hair.

Male pattern baldness and hair loss in women among the most common health conditions today, affecting 40% of men by the age of 35 and, in some cases, as early as the age of 20 and 30 in women.

Average Procedure length: Hair transplant surgery can take anywhere from 2 to 9 hours depending on the grafts that are harvested and implanted. Hair transplant surgery does not require any overnight hospitalization.

There are several factors causing hair loss which may include alopecia, genetic inheritance and other health problems. Traveling for hair transplant abroad, a vast majority of patients enjoy lifetime results of hair transplant surgery.

Because the hair used in the donor area is not sensitive to the balding process, it will be permanent. The hair continues to retain genetic characteristics after the relocation.

The increasing cost of hair transplantation surgery in many western countries had men and women scratch their heads in search for affordable and effective options to help regrow their hair.

During the last few years; traveling for hair transplant surgery has been growing more in popularity and acceptable among both men and women, with a slight uptick in men traveling for hair restoration abroad.

Hair Transplantation

Each person that wants to undergo hair transplant surgery typically concludes a different case. All hair transplants are not the same and the density of the donor area is what determines the grafts available for a hair transplant.

The average number of hair follicles determines the number of hair available. The color and contrast of your skin will be the determining factor on the impression of density. An important aspect is the average diameter of your hair, as well as the hair texture: curly or straight.


There are two different options that can be used for a successful hair transplant. The two methods are Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT).

The two procedures are similar with the major difference affecting the way the follicles are extracted.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE):
The follicular units are extracted directly from the scalp

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT):
A strip of the scalp is removed and the follicles are extracted.

The hair transplant option that most suitable for individual patients suffering from hair loss will be determined by hair-loss tests that are analyzed by the cosmetic surgeon.
 

Cost of Hair Transplantation

The cost of hair transplants abroad have become a much better value; not only the technology used and quality have improved but graft prices have gone way down.
