Hair transplantation involves the surgical relocation of hair follicles from a donor area on the body to a bald or thinning area, termed the recipient site. This procedure, predominantly utilized for addressing male pattern baldness, entails the transfer of grafts containing hair follicles resistant to balding (typically from the back of the head) to the affected scalp.

Given that hair typically grows in clusters of 1 to 4 hairs, contemporary methods focus on harvesting and transplanting these clusters, known as "follicular units," to maintain their natural grouping. Consequently, modern hair transplantation techniques aim to emulate the original orientation of hair, resulting in a natural appearance. This procedure, termed follicular unit transplantation (FUT), facilitates such natural-looking results. Donor hair can be obtained through two distinct methods: strip harvesting and follicular unit extraction (FUE).

What is a hair transplantation surgery?

A hair transplant surgery is a minimally invasive procedure where healthy hair follicles are taken from the back or sides of the scalp and transplanted to areas with thinning or balding hair. This helps restore natural-looking hair growth and improves overall hair density.

When is it recommended?

Hair transplantation surgery is recommended for individuals experiencing permanent hair loss or thinning, typically due to genetic factors (pattern baldness), trauma, or certain medical conditions.

Ideal candidates should have sufficient donor hair on the back or sides of the scalp.

It is essential to consult with a qualified surgeon to assess individual suitability and discuss realistic expectations for the procedure.

What are the advantages of the FUE technique over the FUT technique?

The Follicular Unit Hair Transplant (FUT) is an old technique where a strip of skin containing hair follicles is removed from the donor area and then separated into individual grafts for transplantation into the bald or thinning areas. 

The Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique is a new-er procedure where individual hair follicles are taken from a donor area and implanted into the thinning areas, resulting in natural-looking hair growth. 

In FUE, individual hair follicles are harvested from the donor area using small punches (micro punches), and the tiny incisions made for extraction usually do not require stitches. The small wounds typically heal on their own, leaving minimal scarring. This is in contrast to FUT, where a strip of skin is removed, and stitches are used to close the resulting wound. When compared to the FUT technique, this procedure is safer, associated with lesser scarring and patient discomfort and has a faster recovery.

What causes hair loss?

Hair loss can be attributed to various factors, including genetics, hormonal changes, medical conditions, and lifestyle choices. Understanding the underlying cause of your hair loss is crucial in determining the most suitable treatment approach.

What is the difference between FUE and FUT hair transplant techniques?

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) are two primary methods of hair transplantation. FUE involves harvesting individual hair follicles from the donor area, while FUT involves removing a strip of scalp tissue and dissecting it into grafts. Both techniques offer natural-looking results, but the choice depends on individual factors and preferences.

How long does it take to see results after a hair transplant?

Hair transplant results are not immediate, as transplanted hair follicles need time to establish and grow. Initial growth may begin within a few months, with noticeable improvements becoming more apparent over 6 to 12 months. Full results are typically visible within 12 to 18 months post-procedure.

What is the cost of a hair transplant procedure?

The cost of a hair transplant procedure varies depending on factors such as the extent of hair loss, the technique used, and the clinic's location. During your consultation, we will provide you with a personalized quote based on your specific needs and goals.

Will my transplanted hair look natural?

Yes, our hair transplant procedures are designed to provide natural-looking results that blend seamlessly with your existing hair. Our experienced surgeons carefully place each graft to mimic the natural growth pattern and direction of your hair, ensuring a harmonious and aesthetically pleasing outcome.

Am I a candidate for a hair transplant?

Most individuals experiencing pattern baldness or hair thinning are candidates for hair transplant surgery. However, the suitability of the procedure depends on factors such as the extent of hair loss, the quality of donor hair, and overall health. A personalized consultation with our experts can assess your candidacy.

Is hair transplant surgery painful?

Hair transplant procedures are typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort during the surgery. Patients may experience mild discomfort or soreness in the days following the procedure, which can be managed with prescribed medication.

Are hair transplant results permanent?

Yes, hair transplant results are generally permanent. Transplanted hair follicles are typically resistant to the hormones that cause pattern baldness, ensuring long-lasting and natural-looking results. However, it's essential to follow post-operative care instructions to optimize results and maintain the health of your transplanted hair.

What should I expect during the recovery period?

Recovery from a hair transplant procedure is typically straightforward, with most patients able to resume normal activities within a few days. It's normal to experience some swelling, redness, and mild discomfort in the treated area, which usually subsides within a week. Our team will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth recovery process.
