If you are facing following issues, then you are a perfect candidate for hair transplant:

Two most commonly used techniques of hair transplant are Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) (also known as Strip Method Transplant) and Follicular Unit Extraction(FUE). The former relates to surgically removing a thin strip of scalp containing hair follicles, dividing it into follicular units and relocating them in the bald areas; whereas the latter involves extracting follicular units 1 by 1 and transplanting them where required.
Common pre-operation steps are:
- Stop taking blood thinner 2 weeks before surgery
- Quit smoking 3 weeks before hair transplant
- Do not consume alcoholic beverages during last 3-5 days before surgery
- Limit caffeine intake
- Fill your prescriptions at least a week before your procedure
The procedure for above mentioned techniques are briefly listed as follows:
- FUT Procedure:
- Donor area preparation: 1st step is preparing donor area, involving shaving and marking the back/sides of scalp for strip cutting
- Administering anesthesia: Before cutting, strip donor area is numbed by administering local anesthesia
- Strip cutting: Linear strip of hair bearing superficial layer of skin is excised from the donor site
- Stitching the scalp: Surgeon will carefully stitch back skin with stitches/ staples
- Graft preparation: The scalp strip has thousands of hair follicles. It is excised under a powerful stereo microscope. This helps in obtaining individual mini graft for transplantation
- Administering anesthesia (recipient site): Local anesthesia is again administered to recipient area to numb it.
- FUE Procedure:
- Donor area preparation: Donor area will be shaved and marked for extraction of follicles
- Anesthesia: Local anesthesia will be administered to donor area to numb it and make extraction process virtually painless
- Donor hair extraction: Surgeon will extract donor grafts 1 by 1, using a punching tool of diameter less than 0.1 mm
- Graft preparation: Extracted grafts are handed over to technical staff to trim them carefully under stereo microscopes and obtain grafts of desired size
- Anesthesia (recipient site): once graft extraction is complete, local anesthesia is administered to recipient area to numb it.
Results of hair transplant surgery are fantastic. You not only get natural looking hair back but also live without fear of losing them in future. The transplanted hair starts growing in 3 to 4 months. It may take up to 8 months to reach a full length.
