Surgery - Hair Transplantation

Best Hair Transplant in India

Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure in which the hair follicles are removed from the donor area and planted on the receipt site. Usually, the back and sides of the head (occiput) is considered to be the donor area, and the thinning or balding areas of the scalp (frontal) called the receipt area.

This is a lifelong sustaining process because the hair follicles taken from the back of the head are genetically resistant to baldness, regardless of where they are relocated or planted. This is the most sought after procedure today to regain one’s lost hair.

Hence, hair transplant is a permanent medical solution to hair loss problems.

There are two methods of hair transplant: FUE & FUT. FUE is the most common and popular hair transplantation

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT):

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT): FUT is one of the oldest methods and also known as the strip method of hair transplantation. In this technique, the strip of scalp hairs are removed from the backside of the head and the wound is closed using sutures or staples.

As the excised strip is dissected into individual follicular grafts using a stereomicroscope and then implanted to the receipt site one by one. It leaves a linear scar behind the head which is not cosmetically accepted.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE):

Follicular unit extraction (FUE): This technique is the most popular and advanced hair transplant surgery done for female or male pattern baldness.

It is a minimally invasive hair transplantation technique, which involves removing or extraction of the individual follicular unit directly from the back of scalp using specialized machines and implanting or grafting them one-by-one into the bald/thinning (previously made slits by small needle) areas of the head.

Though it is a time-consuming process but avoids linear scars like FUT. Hence the advances in the concept of using follicular unit grafts have evolved to give you natural-looking and undetectable hair transplants results. 

Herewith, we at Hair Rich & Clear Skin perform only FUE hair transplant.

Mostly the donor sites are back and sides of the head, though beard hair, body hairs and axillary or pubic hairs are also can be taken to restore the severe baldness.

Back and sides of the head (occipital and temporal areas) remain unaffected by baldness, as these hairs are not genetically susceptible to the action of DHT.
