Question:
I have bald patches around my ear since my facelift. Can a hair transplant fix this?

Answer:
Many times, bald patches after a facelift occur due to what is known as follicular shock (telogen effluvium), and hair is expected to recover in these areas after a period of 3 to 6 months.  If, however, there is no return after this period, follicular unit grafting is an excellent method of providing coverage.
