Synthetic Hair Grafting

The insertion of synthetic hair grafts into the scalp of a bald/balding patient
Fibres used PET-polyethylene terephthalate—Dacron—processed human hair, nylon, modacryl
Pros No limit in hair supply, simple procedure allows large number of hair grafts in a short period and return to normal social life
Cons Not permanent—supplementary grafting and new costs incurred ± twice/year; because it is a percutaneous prosthesis, infection is a constant threat, scarring occurs over time, and aftercare is required on a monthly basis for cleaning and monitoring for complications
