This is more of a makeover procedure. The concept remains the same as that of transplanting hair from the donor site to the recipient site. The only difference here is in harvesting long hair from the donor site and transplanting the same, as it is. As can be understood, the results post the procedure will be seen instantaneously. The only catch is that the transplanted long hair, tend to fall off within a month. The transplanted hair follicle or root stays intact therefore the growth of your hair continues just the way it should. Long hair transplants are opted for by people who go for a hair transplant as a treatment but also have an immediate need to look nice with a full head.
