Hair Transplant Surgery

Hair transplant surgeries date back to the 1950s. Surgeons across the world have been working on improving and perfecting these techniques. Of course, the hair transplant surgeries performed today are very different from back then, and the results are also far more superior.

Hair transplant is a surgery performed to treat baldness. The procedure involves removing healthy hair follicles from one area of the body (known as the donor area) and planting them in the area where there is no hair (known as the recipient area). The hair follicles used for the purpose of removal and grafting are called “follicular units”.

The surgeon performing this procedure needs to be highly skilled since the follicular units are fragile and delicate to handle. In general, the best hair transplant in India is a minimally invasive surgery.

Myths about Hair Transplant

  • Hair Transplant is painful

    You need to keep in mind that almost all the medical procedures are painful to some extent. However, with new advancements in the field of cosmetic surgery the pain associated with Hair Transplant has diminished significantly.

  • Everyone can undergo the procedure

    Remember that not every individual is a good candidate for Hair Transplant surgery. Initially, you require a suitable donor area which has plenty of hair for grafting. Next, you should have a healthy scalp.

  • Hair transplants can be easily recognized

    With the new techniques, it really is quite challenging to tell if somebody has undergone the procedure or not.

What to expect before and after the surgery?

Sometimes doctors give medication before the surgery to maintain your current hair growth and keep the donor area healthy. Apart from this, no other medication is administered before the surgery, nor does the patient have to take any extra precautions. The doctor will prescribe medicines post-surgery to alleviate the pain. You will also need to take some medicines to keep the swelling down and to reduce chances of infection.

After the surgery, Hair Transplant surgeons ask their patients to cover their head for a couple of days after the surgery. The stitches remain absorbable so there is no need for the patient to come to the clinic to remove them. Patients go back to work within a couple of days after the surgery. They are able to resume their daily routine without any major hindrances or precautions.

What are the types of Hair Transplant?

There are two types of Hair Transplant techniques:

FUT: In Follicular Unit Transplantation or FUT the doctor selects the donor area near the back of the scalp or the sides of the head. A linear strip is harvested from the center of the permanent zone on the back of the head. The strip is dissected into smaller units known as grafts. These grafts are implanted on the head where there is no hair.

FUE: Unlike FUT, where a continuous strip is taken from the center of the donor area, FUE involves harvesting individual hair follicles from the entire donor area. FUE shows no visible scarring.

Who is the ideal candidate for Hair Transplant?

Any adult (male or female) who is suffering from alopecia (baldness) and is medically fit for surgery is eligible for hair transplant surgery.

How much does Hair Transplant cost?

The hair transplant in India costs depends on how many grafts you require and what is the level of your baldness.

FUE technique for hair transplant

In FUE hair transplant surgery, Micro Follicular units from donor site are harvested each follicle individually, and placed into micro slits made(mm size) in the recipient area. It is best suitable for small hair transplant (Typically 1000-1500 grafts). Follicles are being harvested with a blind tubular punch,while a Follicular unit contains multiple follicles and their directions are different. So, chances of a transaction of harvested hair roots (damage to one or more hair root among harvested follicular unit) as well as surrounding follicle is much high with this technique. So less number of hair grow from transplanted follicles than FUT hair transplant Technique. With this technique, maximum we can harvest up to 1500-2000 follicles from a safe-permanent zone. If we have to get more number of follicles, we need to go outside it. Transplantation with such technique is a very common reason for a loss of transplanted hairs couple of year after the procedure. This is a reason why we don’t recommend FUE technique where more number of grafts is required.

Advantages of FUE technique

It is scarless technique (because scars of microfollicular harvest are not apparently visible), so, beneficial when a person wants very short hairstyle or shaved hairs on back.

Also said that FUE hair transplant surgery is a painless technique, but it is not a real advantages of FUE, as you will be given local anesthesia before and pain medicines after a procedure in both FUE & FUT. Considering this, with us,both Techniques are pain-free.

Limitations of FUE technique

Follicles are being harvested with a blind tubular punch, while a Follicular unit contains multiple follicles and their directions are different. So, chances of a transaction of harvested hair roots (damage to one or more hair root among harvested follicular unit) as well as surrounding follicle is much high with this technique. So less number of hair grow from transplanted follicles than FUT hair transplant Technique.

With this technique, maximum we can harvest up to 1500-2000 follicles from a safe-permanent zone. If we have to get mare number of follicles, we need to go outside it. Transplantation with such technique is a very common reason for a loss of transplanted hairs couple of year after the procedure. This is a reason why we don’t recommend FUE technique where more number of grafts is required.

FUT technique for hair transplant

In FUT hair transplant surgery, an appropriately sized strip of skin containing hairs with intact roots is harvested from back and side of the head and resulting area is closed carefully by meticulous Plastic surgery suturing under magnification to give least conspicuous scar in this area. Individual grafts (follicular units) are being separated from this strip of skin under magnification and implanted in the same way as FUE inside micro slits.We use Carl Zeiss 4x magnification loupes in harvesting skin strip to avoid damage to follicles at the donor site and to make suturing meticulous.Another important thing to give the best result is to reduce ischemia time (time during which hair roots remain outside body-before implantation). We make micro-slits on recipient area before harvesting strip, which increase survival of hair more than any other technique.

Advantages of FUT technique

More number of follicles can be harvested in a single session (reason as described above, less number of follicle get transected while harvest and a team of trained technicians separate follicles under magnified vision). We do transplant of up to 3500 follicles in a single session to give maximum density in your head.

More number of hairs grows out of transplanted follicles, as; the transaction is far less than FUE.

All the transplanted hairs are from “safe permanent zone” of your hairs, so stays on your head for years.

Limitations of FUT technique

Impart a scar on the back of your head (which may be visible if you are fond of keeping hairstyle with complete shaved hairs or very small 1-2 mm trimming of hairs on back.)

It has been frequently blamed as painful technique, but you can get reviews from our FUT Transplant Surgery Patients that we are making it absolutely painless procedure.

Post surgery care

We will prescribe medicines to make you pain-free and also to prevent any infection after transplantation. (You can contact our surgeons anytime in case of any problem)

You have to take care of newly transplanted hairs- avoid any friction or shearing at the treated area. We will give you a cap to wear on the head for protection from dust.You can start your routine activity on very next day including office work. You should avoid stressful activity, prolonged sun exposure, and exercise for 15 days.You can start washing your hairs 2 days after a procedure as explained to you. You should start application of hair nourishing solutions as per the advice of our hair transplant surgeon.

All your transplanted hairs in recipient area will fall off gradually (in a couple of weeks) and the roots placed inside skin will stick in. New hairs will start growing out of these roots after 3-4 month. They typically remain very scarce initially. But don’t worry about the density of growing hair at this point! They increase in density gradually taking 10-12 months to achieve maximum. After that, they grow naturally throughout life and behave in the same manner as they were programmed to behave at their original place (Donor Site).
