About Hair Transplant

Hair Transplant

Hair Transplant

Hair transplant is a process in which a plastic or dermatological surgeon moves hair to a bald area of the head. The surgeon generally moves hair from the back or side of the head to the front or top of the head. Hair transplants typically happen in a medical office under local anesthesia.

Pattern baldness is responsible for the majority of hair loss. This comes down to genetics. The remaining cases are due to a variety of factors, including:

  • medications
  • diet
  • stress
  • illness
  • hormonal imbalance

Are there different types of hair transplants?

There are two types of transplant procedures:

  1. Slit grafts
  2. Micrografts

Slit grafts contain 4 to 10 hairs per graft- Micrografts contain 1 to 2 hairs per graft, depending on the amount of coverage needed.

Who might benefit from a hair transplant?

Receiving a hair transplant can improve your appearance and self-confidence. Good candidates for a hair transplant include:

  • men with male pattern baldness
  • women with thinning hair
  • anyone who has lost some hair from a burn or scalp injury

What happen during a hair transplant?

After thoroughly cleaning your scalp, a surgeon uses a small needle to numb an area of your head with local anesthesia.

Two main techniques are used to obtain follicles for transplantation: FUT and FUE.

In follicular unit transplantation (FUT):

  • The surgeon will use a scalpel to cut out a strip of scalp skin from the back of the head. The incision is typically several inches long.
  • This is then closed with stitches.
  • The surgeon next separates the removed portion of scalp into small sections using a magnifying lens and sharp surgical knife. When implanted, these sections will help achieve natural-looking hair growth.
