Hair Transplant

Hair transplantation also known as surgical restoration of hairs and more commonly as hair replacement is a surgical technique in which individuals own hairs are used to replenish his scalp. In the technique hair follicles from a part of the body called the 'donor site' are moved to a bald or balding part of the body known as the 'recipient site'. It is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. In this minimally invasive procedure, grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding, (like the back of the head) are transplanted to the bald scalp. Since hair naturally grows in groupings of 1 to 4 hairs, current techniques harvest and transplant hair "follicular units" in their natural groupings. Thus modern hair transplantation can achieve a natural appearance by mimicking original hair orientation. This hair transplant procedure is called follicular unit transplantation. Hair transplantation differs from skin grafting in that grafts contain almost all of the epidermis and dermis surrounding the hair follicle, and many tiny grafts are transplanted rather than a single strip of skin. The hospital provides personalized treatment for every patient and has successfully treated large number of patients without any side effect.

What is Hair Transplantation?

  • It is a surgical procedure by which permanent hair from regions of the scalp that normally never goes bald, such as the sides and lowers back of the head is transferred or redistributed into areas of permanent hair loss or thinning. In addition to scalp hair restoration hair transplants can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, facial hair and hair lost due to trauma on the scalp and on the body as well.
  • Hair naturally grows, in clusters of one, two, three, and sometimes four hairs, these clusters are called “follicular hair units. Hair Transplantation procedure imitates nature by relocating these naturally occurring “follicular hair units” from the donor area (i.e. the back and the sides of the head) to the recipient site (balding area)

Types of Hair Transplant procedures

  • Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT/Strip)
  • In this a long, thin sliver of tissue is removed from the donor area from the back and sides of the scalp and the individual follicular units are removed from that strip via stereo-microscopic dissection. The wound edges are then closed leaving a single and generally fine scar
  • Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
  • In this hair is harvested through small circular incisions over a considerable larger area of the donor zone leaving tiny, round, white scars.

Who can benefit from hair transplantation?

Anyone who has experienced permanent hair loss may be an ideal candidate for hair restoration surgery, including:

  • Men with male pattern baldness (also known as hereditary hair loss)
  • Women with female pattern hair loss
  • Men or women who want to restore or change the shape of their hairline(advancing the hair line).
  • People with areas of scarring from injuries or “scarring” skin diseases, and also patients who experienced some hair loss after surgery, such as face lift procedures
  • People who want to thicken or restore moustaches, eyebrows, eyelashes, and beards
  • Men and women who want hair in an area where they have little or no hair

What happens during a hair transplant procedure?

  • Hair transplantation surgery is considered to be “minor day care surgery.”
  • Hair transplant procedures can take from 3–8 hours and are usually performed using local anesthesia on day care basis, often with some supplemental oral or IV medication for sedation. Patients are often awake, but feel very relaxed because of the effect of the sedative.
  • The donor areas, where the grafts have been harvested, are usually closed with sutures or surgical staples, except in the Follicular Unit Extraction technique (FUE), which does not require surgical closure. These are usually removed in 7–14 days.
  • Dissolvable sutures may occasionally be used in order to eliminate the need for you to return for suture removal. The recipient sites, where the grafts are placed on top are essentially small, superficial needle holes or slits in the skin of the scalp. Our surgeon will discuss with you the pros and cons of the various methods of both donor harvesting and transplanting the grafts.
  • At the end of the procedure either a very light dressing is applied or in many cases, the doctor will have you stay for brief observation and then allow you to leave with no dressing whatsoever. At the conclusion of the procedure the surgeon usually checks the final placement of the grafts, and the doctor or an assistant then explains the postoperative instructions, which are usually supplied in written form as well.
