How Does Hair Transplantation Work?
Hair transplant is the only viable and natural solution for
male and female pattern baldness to date. The results change dramatically change your
How is it carried out?
There are two major types of hair transplantation including:
1. Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)
2. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
In FUT, a strip of hair follicles is extracted from the donor site to be implanted at the recipient
site. The obtained strip of hair grafts is separated with the help of a microscope. These separated
grafts are replanted at the balding regions.
This procedure is quick and cheaper as compared to FUE. However, a prominent scar is left on
the donor site from where the strip is removed.
The latest procedure for hair transplantation FUE has taken over the market for last few years.
Most people with pattern baldness opt for FUE hair transplant.
Instead of removing a strip of hairs, FUE focuses on extracting singular follicular unit from the
donor area of the scalp. The scarring is quite negligible compared to FUT and patient have red
dots on the sites of extraction.
How long does a hair transplant take to heal?
Both restorative systems can be finished in a day and patients are given relief from discomfort to
help them through the recuperation procedure. We encourage patients to take seven days off
work to recoup from the system. Patients are encouraged to be watchful in the initial two weeks
after their task - as the new hair grafts won't yet be totally secure.
In this regard, we advise wearing easy and buttoned clothes rather than T-shirts that can pull of
the newly harvested grafts pulling over the head.
Here are the steps to performing a hair transplant:

Hiding the sutured site
Hairs are combed over the sutured site to hide the area.
Preparing follicular unit grafts
Special microscopes are used to see the tissues of extracted follicles to prepare them for
Preparation of recipient area
After the anesthesia is administered, the recipient site is prepared for grafting. No trimming is
required at the recipient site.
Placement of grafts at the balding area
Follicular unit grafts are placed at the incisions that are made in an irregular pattern at the
Incisions that are made at the balding area are visible right after the surgery.
The procedure is done and the marks that are caused by incisions will be healed naturally.
