It is the most common cosmetic treatment in males. In this procedure healthy hair follicles are taken from the part of the body known as “donor site” and placed in the balding area on the scalp known as “recipient site”.
Once the hair has been extracted it is implanted into tiny slits on the balding areas of the scalp. The extraction is known as graft contains hair, hair follicles, skin of hair and the surrounding tissue. It can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, and pubic hair and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants treatment.
The whole procedure takes 6 to 8 hours depending upon the no of hair to be transplanted.
Types of procedures
- Follicular Unit Extraction: This procedure involves no scars. Hair graft is taken directly from the scalp. These grafts are then implanted into the region of baldness. This procedure is more time consuming and is generally limited to 800 to 1,000 follicular units at a time. This technique involves individual extraction of follicular units rather than the entire strip. For those who do not want the scar to show, this is an ideal option.
- Follicular Unit Hair Transplant: A strip of hair is removed from the back side of the head closer to the neck since hair growth is permanent here. After that the hair follicles are separated one by one to be individually implanted in the bald area.
- Robotic Hair Transplant: As the name suggests the process is done using a robot. The grafts are harvested using suction assistance ensuring at minimal root cut and damage the same time maximum graft yield.
