Hair Transplant

What is a hair transplant?

Hair transplant is a surgical technique that removes hair follicles from one part of the body, called the ‘donor site’, to a bald or balding part of the body known as the ‘recipient site’ .

Are there different types of hair transplants?

There are 2 types of transplant procedure: Slit grafts & Micro grafts. Slit grafts contains 4 to 10 hairs per graft.

Micro grafts contain 1 to 2 hairs per graft, depending on the amount of coverage needed.

What happens 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 & FUE.

1. In Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT): The surgeon will use a scalpel yo 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 & sharp surgical knife. When implanted, these sections will help achieve natural-looking hair growth.

2. In Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): The hair follicles are cut out directly from the back of the head through hundreds to thousands tiny inch incisions. The surgeons make tiny holes with a blade or needle in the area of your scalp that’s receiving the hair transplant, They gently place hairs in these holes. During one treatment sessions, a surgeon may transplant hundreds or even thousands of hairs. After, the graft, gauze, or bandages will cover your scalp. Benefits: Natural hair regrowth.
