What is Hair Transplantation

Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure designed to treat hair loss or baldness by transplanting hair follicles from one area of the body (typically the back or sides of the scalp, known as the donor area) to another area with hair loss or thinning (the recipient area). This procedure is performed to restore a more natural-looking hairline, increase hair density, and improve overall hair appearance. The process begins with a consultation with a qualified hair transplant surgeon or dermatologist. During the consultation, the patient’s hair loss condition is assessed, and the treatment plan is discussed. Factors such as the cause of hair loss, the extent of hair loss, and the patient’s goals are considered.

Here’s an overview of the hair transplantation process:

  • Donor Area Selection:

    • The surgeon identifies a suitable donor area on the patient’s scalp, which typically has healthy and robust hair follicles that are resistant to hair loss.
  • Hair Follicle Harvesting:

    • There are two main methods for harvesting hair follicles:
      • Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT): In FUT, a strip of scalp containing hair follicles is surgically removed from the donor area. The strip is then dissected into individual follicular units for transplantation.
      • Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): FUE involves the extraction of individual hair follicles directly from the donor area using a micro-punch or robotic-assisted device.
  • Hair Follicle Preparation:

    • The harvested hair follicles are carefully prepared and sorted into grafts, each containing one or more hair follicles.
  • Recipient Site Creation:

    • Tiny incisions or recipient sites are made in the recipient area, where the transplanted hair follicles will be inserted.
  • Hair Transplantation:

The prepared hair grafts are meticulously transplanted into the recipient sites, ensuring that they are placed at the correct angle and density to achieve a natural appearance
